Refueling process utilizing submersible pump technology

Refueling process utilizing submersible pump technology.

Modern new-type gas stations pay more attention to fast refueling speed, many types of refueling, and large refueling volumes. So the scale is getting bigger.

In addition, the gas station also provides comprehensive services such as car washing services and convenience stores, and the gas station space is larger.

Usually, the tanks of the modern gas station are far away from the refueling area, and the pipeline is long.

While traditional refueling methods typically involve above-ground pumps, submersible pumps offer unique advantages now.


Traditional refueling technology

Conventional dispensers use their own internal self-priming pumps to suck oil directly from the stored tank.

Affected by a certain allowable suction lift, the inlet pipeline of the fuel dispenser and the buried depth of the tank will be limited.

Such a gas station must be accurately calculated, otherwise, the working performance of the fuel dispenser will be affected.

How does the submersible pump technology generally work?

1. Submersible Pump Selection: A suitable submersible pump is chosen based on factors such as the type of fluid being transferred,

flow rate requirements, head pressure, and any specific environmental considerations.

2. Tank Preparation: The tank or container receiving the fuel needs to be properly prepared for refueling. This may involve ensuring the tank is clean, checking for any leaks or damages, and making sure the appropriate safety measures are in place.

3. Pump Installation: The submersible pump is securely installed inside the tank or container, typically near the bottom. The pump is designed to be submerged in the fluid and is equipped with an intake or suction mechanism to draw in the fuel.

4. Power Connection: The submersible pump requires a power source to operate. Depending on the application, this can involve connecting the pump to an electrical outlet, a generator, or a dedicated power supply system.

5. Fluid Transfer: Once the pump is powered on, it creates a vacuum or uses an impeller to draw in the fuel from the tank. The fuel is then pumped out through a discharge or outlet pipe connected to the pump. The pump continues to operate until the desired fuel transfer volume is achieved.

6. Monitoring and Safety: Throughout the refueling process, it’s important to monitor the pump’s performance, fluid levels,

and any safety indicators or alarms associated with the system. Safety measures like overfill protection and leak detection should be in place to prevent accidents or spills.

7. Pump Maintenance: Submersible pumps require regular maintenance to ensure their proper functioning. This includes periodic inspection, cleaning, lubrication, and, if necessary, replacement of worn-out parts or the entire pump.

Unique advantages

The refueling process of using the submersible pump can supply multiple nozzles with one pump,

so each submersible pump only needs to lay an oil pipeline from the tank to the gas station.

And then the oil supply pipe can be divided into the fuel dispenser, and the pipeline setting is simple.

For gas stations of the same size, the filling pipes of the submersible pump system are greatly reduced than those of the self-priming pump system.

As a result, the reduction in the number of refueling equipment also reduces the investment cost of equipment.
