Lamor has developed its own portfolio of oil transfer pumps, the GT A multi-purpose submersible Archimedes screw pumps with a capacity ranging from 20 to 140m³/h.
The design ensures a gentle pumping action that will not emulsify oily water, and ensures the efficient movement of material. In addition to being used as oil transfer pumps, the pumps are well-suited to many applications such as offloading emergency pumping of heavy crude, bitumen, and for tank cleaning, pipeline maintenance etc.
The efficiency of the GT A pumps is increased thanks to a water/steam annular injection on the inlet as standard and a debris cutting knife to handle solids such as seaweed, plastics and ropes.
The pumps are constructed from robust seawater resistant aluminum for the casings and stainless, acid proof steel internals with special seals that ensure the pump remains “dry”.
The pump range has been extensively tested in the field and is certified by Bureau Veritas for its recovery capacities in oils of varying viscosities.
