McNallen Oil Company Inc. Fort Worth, Texas


Background

Crude oil tank transfer is one of those applications where you must have heavy duty pumping equipment to move various consistencies of oil. Most refinery transfer applications have the need to move oil around the clock, so pumping equipment must be severe duty rated.

Issue

McNallen Oil Company Inc. in Fort Worth Texas, contacted Wastecorp concerning the need for a robust pump to transfer crude oil from tank-to-tank at their various job sites. McNallen invests in heavy duty oil field equipment that lasts the long haul while providing high productivity solutions.

Solution

Wastecorp recommended, the Sludge Pro double disc pump model 4DDWP-M with a DOT approved trailer package. The pump included a 17 hp Kohler diesel engine with external fuel tank, electric start, oil bath cleaner and control panel. With no regular maintenance required and less than 110 RPM pump speeds, the Sludge Pro pumps thicker fluids and solids while reducing the need for expensive repair parts down the road. A Sludge Pro double disc pump is also one of the easiest pumps on the market to service. Check balls are accessed through the valve chamber, which is a simple procedure
