Blackmer, a manufacturer of pumps and compressors, has integrated Ebsray products into its family of propane autogas solutions for use in the North and South American markets.
Blackmer's parent company, PSG, acquired Ebsray in May 2013. Blackmer is now offering the Ebsray RC20 and RC25 regenerative turbine pump models for use in autogas applications.
The company says the pumps have single-stage, bronze impellers, ductile-iron casings, and high-tensile alloy-steel shafts. The pumps produce flows up to 24 gpm (90 L/min) at pressures up to 145 psi, boasting speeds of 3,600 rpm and a power range of 4 HP (3 kW), adds Blackmer. The products are UL listed for autogas applications.
To complement these pumps, Blackmer says it is also offering the Ebsray Model RV18 bypass valve, which enables regenerative turbine pumps to offer full pump flow while maintainingÂ controlled, preset maximum pressures. The RV18 bypass valves are constructed of ASTM A395 ductile iron with steel springs. Blackmer says they have been hydrostatically tested to 1,000 psi (70 bar) and are also UL listed.
Blackmer offers its own LGL150 Series sliding vane pumps for autogas applications. They are constructed of ASTM A536 ductile iron, Duravanes, replaceable cavitation-suppression liners, internal relief valves, and mechanical seals, with optional C-face mountings in NEMA and IEC sizes.
According to the company, the UL-listed pumps offer flow rates of 11-32 gpm (42-122 L/min) at pressures from 140 to 200 psi (10-13.8 bar) and speeds up to 1,750 rpm, with a power range of 3-5.2 HP (2-4 kW).
