Pumps Specially Designed for LPG Handling
Handling LPG or gaseous liquids is no easy task: Now PSG's subsidiary Ebsray Pumps targets this market with its new RC40 Series Regenerative Turbine Pump, specially tailored for liquefied gas applications like LPG, Autogas, DME, aerosols, refrigerants and liquid CO2.
Developed as a replacement for the company's R10 model, the new RC40 pump features increased flow rates and features important new design enhancements. The pumps offer exceptional reliability, even under extremely low NPSH operating conditions and possess the ability to handle entrained vapors without loss of efficiency or internal damage. The close-coupled flange design mounts to both 50 Hz and 60 Hz (NEMA and IEC) electric motors while the unique 3-ported design with two discharge ports provides installation flexibility. In addition, the RC40 optimizes performance and efficiency by using one motor size less than it’s leading competitors.
RC40 pumps have bronze impellers, ductile-iron casings and high-tensile alloy-steel shafts. The pump features a maximum differential pressure to 14 bar (200 psi) and maximum flow rates are 200 L/min (52.8 gpm) with motor speeds up to 3,500 rpm. RC40 pumps also feature multiple flange port options in one body design: ANSI, DIN and NPT. Cartridge design mechanical seals and bearings are interchangeable with RC20 and RC25 models. RC40 pumps comply with ATEX and AS1596 codes with UL51 certification in progress.
