The Azcue BT-LS-V Long Coupled Triple Screw Pump is a large, heavy duty model characterised by its significantly higher flow capabilities than the other screw pumps in the Azcue range The BT-LS range is technically optimised for the high efficiency handling of low viscosity fuel down to 1.5cst at 40°C (ISO8217:2005) as well as low sulphur 0.1% (EU/SECA-33-EC) as per the new specifications indicated in the in EU directive 2005/33/EC.This, combined with its high flow makes the BT-LS self priming screw pump ideal for the transfer of large volumes of low sulphur fuels.

Being long coupled, these self priming screw pumps are easier to maintain as you can get to the pump head without removing the motor first, and are also more durable for continuous use as it has additional bearings in the pump head to share the strain of operation. This triple screw pump is vertical in design with inline suction and discharge, ideal for space saving applications, whilst achieving flow rates only obtained by large pumps.

The nature of the screw pump design means it can be used where suction capabilities are difficult such as pumping over long distances or where the pump is located above the fluid.

Features of the BT Series Screw Pump:

  • High flow, long coupled self priming screw pump
  • Pump manufactured in Spain
  • Marine type approved by all classification societies
  • Additional bearings in pump head to share the strain of operation
  • Horizontal inline ports, supplied flanged as standard
  • Vertical orientation ideal for space saving installations
  • Mechanical seal as standard - magnetic coupling on request
  • Available with pressure relief valve
  • Smaller footprint than an equivalent performance gear pump
  • Low NPSH
  • Suitable for lube and fuel oils including low sulphur fuel from 1.5cSt
  • 230v, three phase 50Hz/60Hz motors available. IP55 as standard.

Marine Gas Oil Conversion for Ferry Operator - Screw Pump

Marine Gas Oil Conversion for Ferry Operator - Screw Pump

A UK ferry operator required a verticle inline screw pump with Lloyds approval, due to undergoing a marine gas oil conversion. The customer needed the pump in 3-4 weeks in order to meet the vessels dry docking program. Castle Pumps supplied a vertical inline screw pump in just over 3 weeks, complete with marine certification. In result of our quick response and supplying the pump within the time needed, we were also asked to supply a DN80 strainer and flowmeter suitable for MGO.

The BT-LS Long Coupled Screw Pump is manufactured by Azcue Pumps, for whom Castle Pumps are the UK agent. Azcue Pumps are a European manufacturer with over 100 years’ experience in type approved pumps for marine and offshore applications. Today their pumps are installed in more than 10,000 vessel builds. Whilst originally developed for the marine market, Azcue Pumps’ reliability in applications that depend upon the safety and operation of a ship saw them become a desirable product in industrial applications involving water, fuels and lubricants.

One of the key benefits of the BT-LS triple screw pump like the other models in the Azcue range, is that is benefits from interchangeable parts for reduced on board stockholding. We guarantee supply of spares for 15 years from model discontinuation for long term pump servicing, saving the user from having to prematurely replace a pump that just needs maintenance.

Azcue BT-LS pump are cast, machined and assembled at their foundry in Spain. Each pump is manufactured to order and designed to fit your process, resulting in greater efficiency and lower overall lifetime cost in terms of wear and energy consumption. Before leaving the factory, pumps are individually tested to confirm performance meets the requirements set out in your enquiry.

The viscosity of lubricating fluids such as fuels and oils can change with a change in the temperature, unlike fluids such as water. Whereas a centrifugal pump’s performance is affected by fluctuations in the viscosity of the fluid, screw pumps operate just as efficiently. For that reason, given the Azcue BT-LS's extremely high flow capabilities, this triple screw pump is ideal for the following applications:

Marine Applications:Industrial Applications:
  • Fuel oil cargo pumps for vessel loading and unloading
  • High flow fuel transfer such as marine gas oil (MGO), heavy fuel oil (HFO) and low sulphur (LSFO)
  • Lube oil transfer between containers
  • Circulating lubricants around a system to ensure the engines and gearbox
  • Thermal oil pump for burner/boiler feed
  • High flow fuel transfer pumps for handling diesel and fuel oil
  • Lube oil transfer between containers
  • Circulating lubricants around a system to ensure the engines and gearbox
  • Fuel oil separating
  • Thermal oil pump for burner/boiler feed
