IMO Expands Its Line Of Geared Twin-Screw Pumps —Literature Available

The IMO® Pump Division of Transamerica Delaval Inc. has broadened its line of GTS® geared twin-screw pumps to include models with cases, internals, and relief valves of stainless steel, Monel, bronze and NiResist, as well as those with standard internals of cast iron and carbon steel.

The new pumps are expected to find wide use in loading and offloading extremely sour crudes, pumping very high metals content residues from atmospheric and vacuum towers and dirty bottoms from other process units.

With a viscosity capability that goes as high as 4.5 x 106 SSU, GTS pumps can help refiners take the very deepest cuts of HGO and will handle pitch, asphalt, tars and other residues even when towers temporarily lose heat—doing away with the need for cutter fluids and hydroblasters. Units get back on stream quickly.

GTS pumps will tolerate even the dirtest streams as bearings are isolated from the pumped fluid.

They can run dry without damage, retaining prime until feed is restored.

Capacities run from 20— 7,000 gpm, discharge pressures to 600 psig, and temperatures to 700 F.
