Designed for use on tank farms for fuel transfer, as well as in tank applications at oil and gas refineries, chemical and petrochemical processing plants etc, the GSPVS pump meets the requirements of API 685 (as applicable to this style of pump) and is fully ATEX compliant.
The GSPVS pump comes in a compact package with all the benefits of a magnetic drive pump
The vertically mounted GSPVS pump provides all of the benefits of a magnetic drive pump in a compact package, using fewer parts with no seal systems for reduced cost operation. Composed of modules which can be joined to reach a total assembly length up to five metres, the GSPVS is mounted on a base available to ANSI B16.5 or to customer specific requirements, including lifting points as standard. The modular construction uses a flexible jaw coupling to join drive shafts and to absorb misalignment, decreasing vibration and increasing life expectancy.
Maximised seal and lubrication life
Greased for life ball bearings are used along the column, removing the need for lubricating or cooling the intermediate sleeve bearings using system fluid. The use of labyrinth bearing seals and a suction strainer avoids external contamination to maximise seal and lubrication life.
Looking after the safety of personnel
The GSPVS utilises over thirty years’ experience in API applications and over a seventy year heritage in magnetic drive technology at HMD Kontro. With stricter demands for the safety and welfare of both personnel and the environment being imposed, sealless pumps are playing an increasingly important role.
