Blackmer TXS1200 Series Pumps
July 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Blackmer, Grand Rapids, Mich., introduced the TXD1200 Series high-speed truck pumps to adapt to specific changes in the light petroleum products markets.
The TXD1200 Series is ideal for pumping light petroleum products (diesel, heating oil, gasoline, kerosene, avgas, various biofuels, such as biodiesel and ethanol) and addresses all of the noted changes in the marketplace.
The pumps will be available in port sizes of 2", 2.5" and 3". Although most parts and options remain common to the current TXD pumps, including Duravanes, mechanical seals, bearings, relief valves (mechanical and pneumatic) and flange options, some basic changes have been made to the TXD1200 Series pumps to optimize performance and provide a longer service life. These pump models are designed with a new cylinder body, with indicator holes drilled near the feet on the discharge side of the pump for external identification. All the models are designed with a new rotor and shaft, along with new lock-nuts and nylon tipped set screws that reduce maintenance requirements. They are manufactured without push rods on the TXD1225 and TXD1220 models, while composite push rods are designed into the TXD1230.
The TXD1200 Series pumps are designed to perform at maximum pump speeds of 1200 rpm for the TXD1225 and TXD1220 pumps, and 900 rpm for the TXD1230 pump.
