DeLaval IMO Pump Division Publishes Illustrated Bulletin On Pumps For Gas Turbines

The IMO Pump Division of DeLaval Turbine Inc. has just published a six-page illustrated bulletin on IMO fuel and lube pumps for use with gas turbines. The bulletin gives specification and performance parameters for fuel injection, fuel transfer and lube applications. IMO pumps can operate on both petroleum base and synthetic lubes, and for fuel transfer and injection can handle distillates, crude, residual and low sulfur blends.

A notable feature of IMO pumps is that one pump can be chosen to handle more than one fuel.

Included in the bulletin are photographs showing configurations and a cutaway diagram showing construction and principle of operation. All IMO pumps use the threescrew axial-flow design. Screws roll without rubbing and float in their bores, oil flow is axial, radial bending loads do not exist and hydraulic balancing eliminates thrust loads.

The single bearing is isolated from the oil.

These pumps are engineered to deliver nonpulsating flow reliably and efficiently.

IMO pumps have been manufactured by DeLaval Turbine Inc. since 1932, and are in extensive use in merchant and Navy vessels, refineries, industrial powerplants, nuclear and fossil-fuel powerplants.

The bulletin is available free of charge from IMO Pump Division, DeLaval Turbine Inc., P.O. Box 321, Trenton, N.J. 08602.
