Monitoring of fuel deliveries in and out of the companies storage facility was becoming a major problem as few of the trucks delivering had any metering equipment fitted. As a result PetroAfrica commissioned Alpeco to design & build a customised trailer mounted pump and flow meter which could be used both as a stripping pump for off-loading product from road tankers into storage and also as a loading system for filling PetroAfrica’s own tankers
The CAD-designed fuel pump and meter set was mounted to a robust Ifor Williams trailer with pipe work and hose’s configured to facilitate metered and non-metered deliveries with flow rates up to 900 LPM.
• RVP30 3” positive displacement cargo pump complete with inlet filter, fully assembled together with close coupled 3 phase 7.5 H.P ATEX approved electric motor complete with stop start panel, flying lead and plug for connection to 3 phase supply.
The completed unit was fully tested and calibrated at Alpeco’s workshop prior to shipping to Tanzania.
