APL's container' 'ships of the future'' each have 41 screw pumps aboard.
The President Truman is the first of a new class of five container ships launched during 1988 by American President Lines.
And each pump is a Leistritz.
American President Lines' new C-10 class of container ships is contributing to a significant reduction in the Company's per-unit marine operating costs.
Built in West Germany, these five ships feature a racing-yacht type hull, the world's largest internal combustion engine, and advanced computerized controls.
When it comes to pumping requirements—for lube oil, hydraulic oil, fuel supply, sludge handling, filling and transfer—each of the new APL vessels will be equipped with 41 Leistritz rotary screw pumps.
Designing pumps to meet special fluid-handling requirements is a Leistritz specialty. Leistritz also makes a complete line of standard pumps for both shipboard and industrial applications worldwide. And both our engineered and standard pumps feature the built-in quality, reliability, and efficiency that have made
Leistritz a leading name in the industry for more than 60 years.
