  • Breaking in the new pump.

    "Yanmar/Gorman Rupp" combo

    418cc

    "super trapp" spark arrestor

    gpm-??(not rated)

    3" inlet/outlet

    diesel/explosion proof c/w bonding(ground)cable

    i ran 1/2 a gal (1/2 a tank) of diesel through the engine and had to change the recirc water 4 times (warmed up, friction)

    appox. 7 million litres of jet a fuel for this transfer

    Vince

    pet peeve about this one; the running of the motor hypnotizes me and makes me really tired.

          That would be 1,849,204.3665070389076592994512641 US Gallons

          Ys sure you don't have an extra zero in there somewhere?

            sorry, got my numbers mixed up with the gasoline resupply.

              It would still run my tractors for a very long, long time,

              that is still about 325 000 gallons, (if I did my math right)
              or about 36 to 38 semi tuck loads of fuel,

              how many liters/gallons a min does it pump?
              and how long did it take to transfer the fuels.

              were you transferring it from a ship? to shore?
              or from tank to tank, and if from tank to tank why? my I ask.

                for some reason the pump is not rated.

                this a tank to tank transfer. they want to make room for the next ship to shore transfer.

                it has to do with keeping the fuel certified for aircraft use. it keeps this years fuel from contaminating last years certified fuel in case there's a problem with this years resupply.

                it everything is operating good, it takes about 12 hrs give or take an hour.

                  If I did my math right, that's about 450 GPM.
                  (325000/12)/60
                  That is one mighty powerful pump for its size!

                    this new pump really puts out. a lot better than the old one.

                    time to rebuild the old one.

                    418 cc deisel is not easy to start by hand. it puled me right off my feet once. ouch!!
