Triple screw pumps for fuels & oils
Castle Pumps have been supplying screw pumps to the industrial and marine market for over 15 years. Able to handle fluctuating flow rate and pressure without losing efficiency, screw pumps are ideal for clean, lubricating fluids such as fuels, oils and lubricants. Our range of quality screw pumps includes twin screw pumps and triple screw pumps. Whilst gear pumps are suitable for many similar applications; screw pumps have better mechanical efficiency, operate with less noise and fewer vibrations and providing less turbulence and a smoother flow.

Past Screw Pump Project
Using our extensive knowledge and expertise, we’ve helped hundreds of clients find the right triple screw pump for their fuel and lubricant applications.
Read our case study and find how we helped one of our clients, a UK ferry operator, who needed a Lloyds approved marine gas oil pump in 3-4 weeks to meet the vessels dry docking program where a fuel system conversion was being undertaken. With reliability and short lead-time being key, we specify and supply vertical inline screw pump in just over 3 weeks, complete with marine certification.

Screw Pumps vs Gear Pumps
When it comes to transferring fuels, oils, and other lubricating fluid, screw pumps and gears are usually the preferable choices. But what are the differences and advantages of these pump technologies? Whilst a gear pump is more than an acceptable option for the handling of lubricating fluids, the design of the screw pump has several advantages over it. Some of the key benefits that screw pumps have are smoother, lower vibration pumping, better suction capabilities, smaller footprint and better mechanical efficiency.
To make these features as clear as possible, we have constructed a comparison table and detailed guide where you can find all the difference between these two pumping solutions.
