A Blackmer-Ebsray autogas solution

Blackmer extends range with Ebsray

The Ebsray pumps that have joined the Blackmer range are markedly more efficient than competitive offerings

March 2015

Blackmer, a global leader in positive displacement and centrifugal pumps, and reciprocating compressor technologies, has announced the integration of Ebsray products into its stable of autogas-equipment solutions.

Ebsray was acquired by Blackmer’s parent company, PSG, in May of 2013. Blackmer is offering the Ebsray RC20 and RC25 regenerative turbine pump models for use in autogas-handling applications that require long pump life, quiet operation and the ability to handle high differential pressures. In side-by-side tests with competitive models, the Ebsray pumps were proven to be 30 per cent more efficient in terms of energy use.

The Ebsray models RC20 and RC25 regenerative turbine pumps have single-stage, bronze impellers, ductile-iron casings and high-tensile alloysteel shafts. The pumps produce flows to 24 gpm (90 L/min) at pressures to 145 psi (10 bar) with speeds to 3,600 rpm and a power range to 4 HP (3 kW), and are UL-listed for LPG/autogas applications. To complement these pumps for autogas-handling operations, Blackmer is also offering the Ebsray Model RV18 Bypass Valve, which enables regenerative turbine pumps to offer full pump flow while maintaining controlled, preset maximum pressures.

The RV18 bypass valves are constructed of ASTM A395 ductile iron with steel springs. They have been hydrostatically tested to 1,000 psi (70 bar) and are UL-listed for LPG/autogas service. Blackmer also offers its own LGL150 series sliding vane pump for autogas-handling applications. The LGL150 pumps offer the highest level of energy efficiency in autogas-handling with no compromise in flow rates. The pumps are constructed of ASTM A536 ductile iron, Duravanes, replaceable cavitation suppression liners, internal relief valves, and mechanical seals, and with optional C-face mountings in NEMA and IEC sizes.

They are UL-listed for LPG/autogas use and offer flow rates from 11-32 gpm (42- 122 L/min) at pressures from 140-200 psi (10-13.8 bar) and speeds to 1,750 rpm with a power range of 3- 5.2 HP (2-4 kW).

Blackmer is a leading global provider of innovative and high-quality rotary vane and centrifugal pumps, and reciprocating compressor technologies for the transfer of liquids and gases. Supported by a worldwide network of distributors and original equipment manufacturers, Blackmer pumps and compressors are used in a multitude of applications in the process, energy and military and marine markets. Blackmer – headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA – is part of PSG , a Dover company.
