Engineered marine pumps to solve your special problems.
The Leistritz five-rotor, single-flow screw pump on the left was specially designed to unload asphalt and #6 fuel oil from an ocean-going barge.
The pump is one of two we designed and built for an East Coast barge operator. These pumps, each with a capacity of approximately 5000
BPH, are the largest of their type ever installed aboard a U.S. vessel.
The diesel-driven pumps operate at 145 PSIG, at a viscosity of 3000
SSU and temperatures to 340° F.
The entire pump assembly, in- cluding the column assembly and discharge head, is shown in the schematic at right. plus a full line of standard units
While engineering and manufacturing marine pumps to solve all kinds of fluid-handling problems has been a Leistritz specialty for more than 60 years—we make a full line of standard pumps, too.
The line includes two, three and five-screw pumps for lube-oil service, fuel-oil service, hydraulics, sludge handling, cargo loading and unloading. And these pumps serve both shipboard and off- shore applications worldwide.
So whether you have a special pumping problem to be solved, or an application that a standard pump can handle, you can count on Leistritz for a pump design that will—without compromise—meet your exact pumping requirements. And at the same time, you'll get the quality, reliability and efficiency that Leistritz is known for.
