Pumps meet challenges of ULSD transport

Blackmer's TXD Series sliding vane pumps have been designed to meet the challenges associated with the transport of ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD). The new 15-ppm on-road ULSD — the result of an Environmental Protection Agency mandate — has a lower lubricity due to its reduced sulfur content, making its transport more problematic than that of the old 500-ppm low-sulfur diesel (LSD).

To handle this new fuel, TXD pumps, which have superior self-priming and dry run capabilities, have been designed for clean, lubricating liquids for petroleum products such as ULSD, fuel oil, kerosene, gasoline, avgas, jet fuel, and light lube oils. Possible applications include fuel oil delivery trucks, fleet fueling, lube oil, aviation refuelers, and the transport of petrochemicals, gasoline, biofuels, and solvents.

Provided in 1.5- 2-, 2.5-, 3-, and 4-inch port sizes with flow rates from 10 to 500 United States gpm and pressures to 125 psi, TXD pumps offer fast, quiet, trouble-free operation. Adjustable relief valves protect the pump from excessive pressure. The optional air-operated relief valve offers easy hose and nozzle handling. T-type strainers are available to protect pumping systems from damage caused by welding slag and foreign matter in the piping and tanks.
