Blackmer Featuring Pumps and Compressors at 31st World LPG Forum 2018 in Houston, TX

Blackmer®, part of PSG® and Dover, and a global leader in positive displacement and centrifugal pump, and reciprocating compressor technologies, is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting its world-class pump and compressor products for use in the transport and handling of LPG and Autogas at the 31st World LPG Forum 2018. Annually bringing together thousands of global industry leaders from the LPG market, the World LPG Forum will take place from Oct. 2-4 in Houston, TX, USA.

Exhibiting in booths 49/50 at this year’s show, Blackmer will be showcasing its sliding vane pumps for the LPG and Autogas market, including its LG, LGL and TLGLF models. Designed for maximum performance and reliability, Blackmer pumps are ideally suited for cylinder filling, motor fueling, bulk transfer, vaporizers, and on bobtails and transports. Utilizing a unique sliding vane design, Blackmer positive displacement pumps offer the best-combined characteristics of sustained high-level performance, energy efficiency, trouble-free operation and low maintenance cost.

Blackmer will also feature its LB Series Oil-Free Reciprocating Gas Compressors. The compressors meet the needs of the LPG market because they have been designed to deliver high efficiency in handling liquefied gases. They are ideal for railcar unloading and vapor-recovery applications. All of the LB Series compressor’s pressure parts, including the pistons, are constructed of ductile iron, resulting in greater resistance to both mechanical and thermal shock.

Blackmer will be sharing a booth with sister PSG brand Ebsray®, a global leader in the design and manufacture of regenerative turbine pump technologies. At the event, Ebsray will be exhibiting its industry-leading regenerative turbine pumps, including its R75 Series, RC40 Series and RX33 submersible pumps. Ebsray regenerative turbine pumps have been specifically engineered for efficient, high pressure pumping of LPG, Autogas, propane and butane. They offer exceptional performance and reliability, even under extremely low NPSH operating conditions, and possess the ability to handle entrained vapors without due loss of efficiency or internal damage. They are ATEX-compliant and suitable for underground, aboveground and submersible LPG- and Autogas-pumping applications.
