Spanish fuel distributor pumped up with pump solution30 July 2019

Spanish fuel distribution business Reques e Hijos’s 30 trucks and loading bays at its two fuel depots have been outfitted with TX Series Sliding Vane Pumps from Blackmer, a product brand of PSG, a Dover company, via local dealer Cetil Dispensing Technology. The company is now one of the largest distributors of heating oil and diesel fuel for Repsol, Europe’s sixth-largest oil company.

“We started mounting Blackmer pumps on our trucks in 1993 after we had been using other pumps for a couple of years,” said Reques. “We have tried other brands over the years, mainly because some tank-truck manufacturers mount other brands of pumps, but when we order those trucks we get the surprise that it isn’t a Blackmer pump. I prefer the TX pumps because they are very robust, very reliable, they last very, very long and we can trust them in almost every situation.”

Specifically, the TX Series pumps provide the operational characteristics that can satisfy the demands that are common in the delivery of heating oil and diesel fuel, including:

  • Sliding vane operation that self-adjusts for wear and maintains flow rates
  • Dual-end shafts that simplify installation
  • Mechanical seal and ball-bearing construction for maximum reliability
  • Symmetrical bearing support for even loading wear and long life
  • Adjustable relief valves that protect against excessive pressures
  • Easy vane replacement without needing to take the pump out of service

“One of the things we appreciate most from Blackmer pumps is their high reliability in winter,” said Reques. “Because heating oil is 70% of our turnover in the winter months, we need pumps that don’t break and that we can trust during this very busy time for us.”

“Like our partners Blackmer and Cetil, we provide quality service, a quality product, and that is the secret of our success,” said Reques. “The Blackmer pumps give us the guarantee that when we come to a customer we can make the delivery without any surprises. We pump a lot of liters a year, so we need something very trustworthy. We are very happy with Blackmer pumps and we will continue using these pumps for many years.”
