Enquiry

The client wanted to develop some aviation fuel test rigs which would incorporate pumps that could handle aviation fuel at varying temperatures (-50ºC to +60ºC), varying flow rates (30 – 100% of rated duty) within an ATEX Zone 2 environment. Further to this the client wanted pumps which would minimise the heat input into the fuel during operation, have air cooled motors which could operate with ambient air temperatures of -10ºC – 35ºC and also allow fuel to flow through them whilst the pumps were idle.

Solution

Castle Pumps were able to select and customise suitable pumps from their extensive ATEX side channel pump range that fitted the exacting specification of the client and supply under their approved budget for the rigs. CAD drawings for the custom port configuration were made and supplied to the client during the quoting process and photos of the finished pumps sent to the client for their final approval ahead of delivery.

Within a matter of 3.5 working weeks, the pumps were fabricated, tested and delivered to the customers facility for integration into their testing rigs and put into successful operation (10 hrs on / 2 hrs off).
