Multi-Purpose Pump

March 1, 2012

Based on Blackmer’s standard LGLD3 transfer pump, the new LGL3021 Multi-Purpose LPG Pump provides the same horsepower requirements and foot-to-flange and flange-to-flange dimensions as competitive pumps. This allows for easy installation during pump changeovers or plant maintenance without changing piping or motor drives because the inlet and discharge flanges are on the pump shaft centerline. What separates the LGL3021 from competitive pumps is that it provides 13 percent to 25 percent more flow depending on the LPG installation and application conditions, a major consideration during bulk plant and terminal operations, according to the manufacturer. LGL3021 pumps also feature ductile iron construction with an internal relief valve that protects against excessive pressures.
