Fuel oil delivery truck

What is fuel oil?

Fuel oil is a fraction obtained through the petroleum distillation process. Generally speakingfuel oil is any liquid petroleum product that is used by a furnace or boiler to create heat or by an engine to generate power. There is a wide range of fuel oil classes ranging from number 1 Fuel Oil that is a volatile distillate oil used in vaporizing pot-type burners to a number 6 fuel oil that is a high-viscostity residential oil that requires preheating.

Markets served…

While fuel oil delivery does have some stationary applications at bulk storage facilities, most fuel oil is delivered by a Fuel Oil Delivery Truck. Common unloading applications include deliveries to oil change service centers such as auto dealerships, quick lube companies, and bulk deliveries to large transport tanks. Other truck unloading applications include fuel oil delivery trucks for home heating and diesel delivery trucks for farm and fleet fueling.

Parameters and system components…

Due to the wide range of viscosities and application conditions, sliding vane pumps are well suited to handle fuel oils.The reliablity of handling fuel oils is critical for transportation systems and this is where Corken’s pumps shine.The positive displacement, sliding-vane pump is an excellent means of loading/unloading, transfer, and circulating fuel oils.System components include pumps, meters, valves, registers, electronics, in cab data management systems and inventory control systems.

Suitable liquids for a Corken petroleum pump …

Refined petroleum products, fuel oils, gasolines, aviation fuels, kerosenes, biofuels, solvents, & many others.

Applications served…

Bulk plant transfer, fleet refueling, bulk loading & blending, aviation refuelers, fuel marketers, and delivery truck systems.

Pump recommendations…

The PT series and PZ series positive displacement, sliding-vane pumps are well suited for fuel oil bulk transfer (loading) and truck (unloading) applications.

Benefits of using a sliding vane pump…

  • Adjustable, internal relief valve protects the pump from excessive pressure.
  • Deliver high pumping efficiency and low noise.
  • The self-adjusting vanes improve the pumping performance by compensating for wear.
  • An optional air operated relief valve offers easy hose and nozzle handling.
  • Our high recommended T-style strainers protect the pump from foreign material.
  • The hydraulic drive option makes tight spaces a reality with a small compact package.
