7 Steps to the Best Pump Station Design

  1. Choose the proper size tank for the operation, with a 1000 gallon tank for a large industrial motor fueling or a 500 gallon tank for a small 20 LB. refilling.
  2. Always use a tank with a bottom withdrawal, preferably a new one. If a used tank is to be used, remove as many heavy ends as possible.
  3. Size the pump to the operation. Try to consider future expansion. If a meter is to be used, be sure to use a large enough pump, such as a Corken C12 or larger C13 or C14.
  4. Couple the pump to an external by-pass, DO NOT rely on an internal by-pass on the pump.
  5. If a meter is to be used be sure it is designed for the operation. Use Liqua-Tech LPM102 or Liquid Controls MA4.
  6. Piping should be the same size as your pumps and meters, never smaller. Schedule 80 pipe and Type K copper tubing is required.
  7. Safety is a major consideration. Be sure a fire extinguisher and proper warnings and decals are used.
