MUMBAI, INDIA – 16 January 2017 – Gilbarco Veeder-Root announces the launch of its Gear GPU90, a global pumping solution equipped with rugged components to manage the most abrasive fuels. Originally released and tested in aggressive fuel markets around the world, the Gear GPU90 pumping unit’s performance has been lab and field tested in India, MENA and SEA with impressive results.
“The Gear GPU90 was developed to support markets that have highly variable fuel quality,” said Sheldon Muir, Gilbarco Global Product Manager for dispenser components. “The global pumping unit program extends Gilbarco’s proven Vane GPU90 platform for use with a Gear GPU90 cartridge module that will allow customers a choice between a Vane Pump or Gear GPU90 Pump, depending on customers’ forecourt needs.”
Gear GPU90 technology provides resistance to common contamination found in fuels. Its integrated dynamic air separation system removes air from fuel allowing maximum suction lift, optimized flow rate, and reduced noise levels. Gilbarco’s pump technologies are tested and proven to help support consistent fueling performance for the life of the dispenser.
The Gear GPU90 also meets standard fuel applications in gasolines including up to 10 percent ethanol, petroleum diesels, biodiesels up to B5 (five percent ASTM grade biodiesel blend) and kerosene/mineral spirits.
“Using an interchangeable pump platform allows Gilbarco to reduce variation in manufacturing, leading to improved quality and reliability,” said Muir. Vane and Gear GPU90 form factors are backward compatible in shape and size, making manufacturing and service easier. All pumps in the GPU family are self-priming, and each model delivers up to 90 liters per minute on a test stand offering efficient performance in both low and high-viscosity fuels.
Gilbarco’s Gear GPU90 pump is available today in India, MENA and SEA and is configurable in SK700 and Frontier dispensers. Soon, the gear technology will be available in China, ANZ and Latin America. The Gear GPU90 is OIML approved with Gilbarco’s integrated dynamic air system exceeding OIML air separation standards.
