4" Submersible Turbine Pumps Overview
Since the mid 1950s, FE Petro’s parent company, Franklin
Electric, has been involved in the design and manufacture of submersible motors
for use in pumping motor liquids. Building on this extensive history, FE Petro
has contributed innovative product designs for submersible pumps throughout the
1990s, and into the 21st Century. Marketers concerned about fueling times,
efficiency, serviceability, reliability and overall quality find it an easy
choice to specify FE Petro. Consider these unique FE Petro features to improve
the profitability of your retail operations.
- Faster Fueling Times - With innovations like MagShell™,
FE Petro sets the standard for submersible pump performance. FE Petro
turbines fuel cars faster during peak business hours due to higher pump
performance. One reason your customers will keep coming back.
- Active Air Eliminator - FE Petro comes standard with
active air elimination, which eliminates air through the highest point in
the pump head at all times when the pump is running. High point air
elimination assures air does not pass into discharge piping avoiding various
issues related to air in the piping system. Active air elimination insures
air is removed at all times without requiring any outside intervention.
- Safety & Ease in Maintenance - FE Petro STP’s
include a contractor electrical disconnect, which requires loosening of only
(1) bolt. This feature allows motor wiring to be disconnected without
venting the dangerous tank vapors into the sump when servicing the FE Petro
- Simple Servicing - If ever required, the pump can be
easily removed from the tank by unthreading three bolts, there is no need to
disconnect the siphon system, or remove the leak detector from the system to
service the STP, reducing the risk of correcting one problem and causing
- Manual Pressure Relief - A standard FE Petro feature.
When necessary during maintenance to bleed line pressure to zero, a vent
screw is provided. By turning this screw, product is diverted back to the
tank, dropping line pressure to zero, Reducing fuel discharged into the sump
manhole or dispenser pan during servicing, further protecting service
technicians and the environment.
- Reliable Check Valve - The STP uses FE Petro’s proven
line check valve. At 2-3/4” (70mm) in diameter, this valve reduces
pressure loss at high flow rates, resulting in faster fueling times. FE
Petro check valve is proven to seal. You can avoid purchasing additional
check valves when the STP is used with some popular electronic line leak
detectors because of this proven reliability.
- Variable Length - One pump fi ts 94% of all known tank
diameters and tank bury depths combinations. Two other model lengths are
available to handle installations shorter or longer than this range. The
telescoping connection is patented by FE Petro. Pump length is set at the
job site by making one simple measurement and setting the pump length. All
in about 20 minutes and without affecting the UL listing of the pump.
