Blackmer featuring energy-efficient, trouble-free pumps and compressors at ILTA show

April 6, 2016

Blackmer, part of PSG, a Dover company and a global leader in positive displacement and centrifugal pump, and reciprocating compressor technologies, will be exhibiting its leading pumping technologies and compressors in Booth 733 at the International Liquid Terminals Association (ILTA) 36th Annual International Operating Conference and Trade Show. The ILTA Show is being held May 23-25 at the George R Brown Convention Center in Houston TX.

At the show, Blackmer will be featuring its S Series screw pumps. Available with or without external timing gears and bearings, Blackmer S Series pumps are self-priming double-ended positive displacement pumps that offer outstanding performance in the most demanding liquid-storage terminal applications. Blackmer’s twin and triple screw designs provide complete axial balancing of the rotating screws and their timing technologies eliminate metal-to-metal contact with the pump. S Series pumps are also ATEX-certified for use in explosive or dangerous environments.

Blackmer also will showcase its ML Series Sliding Vane Pumps, which are ideal for liquid-terminal operations that require high-capacity product transfer, top or bottom loading/unloading and blending at the rack. ML Series pumps offer tremendous self-priming and high-suction capabilities that enable them to clear tanks of product more effectively and efficiently than competitive models. ML pumps can handle fluid viscosities from 30 to 500,000 ssu (1.0 to 108,000 cS) with flow rates up to 600 gpm (136 m3/h) and at operating temperatures as high as 400° F (206° C).

STX Series Sliding Vane Pumps from Blackmer will be displayed in the booth. STX Series transport pumps are ideal for loading and unloading corrosive and non-corrosive liquids--sulfonic acids, specialty chemicals, solvents, latex paints, liquid sugars and vegetable oils--that are not compatible for use with cast iron pumps. These pumps offer the best combined characteristics of sustained high-level performance, energy efficiency, trouble-free operation and low maintenance costs.

In addition, Blackmer HD Series Reciprocating Gas Compressors will be featured at the show. HD Series compressors provide quiet, efficient transfer of a wide range of liquefied gases. HD Series compressors also have been designed to handle the vapor recovery of gases that are common in terminal applications. The vapor recovery aspect of this application captures vapors before they are released in the environment, allowing terminals to be more environmentally responsible and compliant while ensuring the most complete product transfer possible.
