Submersible pumps for lifting LPG

Submersible pumps are multistage centrifugal pumps that provide a lift of highly viscous liquids and can operate risk free under severe conditions. They are mainly used in LPG car filling stations with forklift refuelling, cylinder filling and marine dispensing being amongst other applicable uses.

Product description

Submersible pumps can be fully submerged into tanks from where they push, rather than pull, the liquid upwards. Unlike other pumps, they can supply LPG to several autogas dispensers as demand increases with guaranteed flow rates.

    Turbine pumps

    For low-flow/high head applications with high differential pressure, such as loading, unloading and filling of LPG, a turbine pump is a great choice. Also known as regenerative turbine pumps.
