Tank Cleaning Pumping
Fast Flow pumps have a compact footprint and can fit into a hatchway. A 3” Fast Flow pump weighs less than 45 lbs and can be easily maneuvered by a single person

•3” Pump flows up to 550 GPM and up to 300’ vertically
•There are no mechanical seals & no wear plates to replace
•Can ship "next day air" by parcel carriers
•Replaces an arsenal of air diaphragm pumps
•Field serviceable in under an hour by the average technichian.

Large Diameter Tank Cleaning
Fast Flow pumps can process the most demanding petrochemical tasks. The 110,000-barrel crude oil tank at Grand Isle Louisiana had accumulated 16 feet of heavy paraffin crude oil sludge and heavy solids that were part of the stock over the years of operation. A single Fast Flow 3” pump was able to move the sludge over 800 feet in a single 3” hose from shore to a waiting barge. The 3” pumped the paraffin crude solids, then pumped and shot a full 6’ stream out into the barge. Fast Flow pumps helped to complete the task 2 full weeks ahead of schedule, pumping paraffin solids 865' to a barge.
