As the demand for biofuels continues to grow, FE Petro™ brand Alcohol-Gas (AG) optioned submersible turbine pumps are at the forefront of motor fuel compatibility. Service station customers demand it, make sure you can provide it. Make sure you have the appropriate equipment to meet the biofuel needs of your customers. Check out these benefits available from FE Petro™.
FE Petro™ brand STPAG and IST models of submersible turbine pumps (STPs) are currently the only STPs UL listed for use with gasoline up to 85% ethanol (E85) and diesel fuel with up to 20% biodiesel (B20) or 100% biodiesel according to UL79A and UL79B respectively.
FE Petro™ brand Alcohol-Gas optioned submersible turbine pumps feature fuel compatibility built on the framework of our standard models. Replacement items like check valves and pump motor assemblies are directly interchangeable, eliminating the need to stock duplicate items for standard and Alcohol-Gas optioned STPs.
As biofuel use continues to grow, so does the potential for increased debris inside the storage tank. To stop this debris from entering the pumping system, use an FE Petro™ brand Intake Filter Screen (IFS). The IFS can be factory installed on STPs and Pump Motor Assemblies (PMAs) or they can be field-retrofitted onto existing FE Petro™ or competitive 4” PMAs.
When installed, an IFS adds only about 1” to the length of the PMA and provides filtration down to about the size of a grain of sand (0.009” openings). Through the IFS design, the output performance of the STP/PMA is maintained to that of a standard end bell construction while providing the added filtration for the entire pumping system.
UL listed biofuel compatibility is available as the Alcohol-Gasoline (AG) option in the following Submersible Turbine Pump (STP) and Pump Motor Assembly (PMA) models:
