KQ 1Q 2015 FINALFinal

  1. 1. The HMD / Kontro GSA Process Pump provides a versatile range of general- service pumps designed to cover wide-duty and multiple-based applica- tions. The intrinsic value of the GSA Process Pump is found in its straight-forward simplicity: a minimum number of pump models achieved by maximizing interchangeable components. A good rule of thumb for specifying the GSA Pump is found in its name – General Service Application (GSA). An ASME-standard pump is available within the GSA product line. Covering a hydraulic range that is split into three frame sizes, Frame 0, Frame 1, and Frame 2, the GSA Process Pump is offered with a range of Synchronous Magnet Drives, rated to match prime-mover performance. The frame sizes and range of drives allow for specification of all denominations. Standard construction of the GSA Pump is comprised of stainless steel with silicone carbide internal bearings. Other options of Alloy 20, C, or B are available upon request. Pumps can be fitted with standard CSF and Graphite Gaskets and Viton O-Rings or PTFE Gaskets and PFR O-Rings. The Stock Depot in Charlotte, NC, is able to mix and match the interchangeable parts to fit the specific application. Standard Temperature Rating is -40°F to 300°F. Hot Modifications, 400°F and 500°F are avail- able by applying an Alloy 255 Bushing Holder and Stainless Steel Cored Outer Magnet Ring and Ceramic Potted Inner Magnet Ring. 600°F Hot Modification is also available by applying a Titanium Bushing Holder, Thermal Spacer, and Finned External Bearing Frame.

  3. 3. ChannelPartnerSpotlight Liquid Handling Equipment, Inc. Oliver Equipment Company (OEC) Formed in 1975 by Gale Oliver and Ron Laughter as Oliver & Laughter Equipment Company, the company changed its name to Oliver Equipment Company after the 1990 retirement of Ron Laughter and later relocation of its home office in 1997. Proudly representing Sundyne API and Sunflo Pumps since 1975, OEC became the HMD / Kontro distributor for South Texas in 1993. The OEC home office and service center are located in Houston, Texas, with satellite offices in Corpus Christi, Beaumont, and Lake Jackson. Currently, the company consists of 36 employees. OEC serves as an Authorized Service Center for all of the products it repre- sents, with the exception of Dresser Rand steam turbines. OEC aftermarket capabilities include: • Factory Trained Personnel • 24 / 7 Call-Out Service • Locally Stocked Parts • Performance Testing of Pumps • Dynamic Balancing of Components • OEM Tolerances and Specifications • Engineered Conversions • Comprehensive Repair Reports Success Story An LNG export terminal facility on the Texas Gulf Coast was in need of a Positive Displacement Diaphragm pump for a Loading Arm application. When loading barges with the Liquid Natural Gas, it was necessary to completely evacuate the LNG in the loading arm. The remaining LNG was then pumped back into the tank via the PD pump. OEC determined that the Positive Displacement Pump was not the best choice for the LNG applications because of low NPSHa and high pulsations. OEC introduced the HMD / Kontro LMV-801S (API certified) pump and was able to sell the low NPSHr - no seals, no seal support systems, no cooling water required. With a tight project schedule, HMD / Kontro provided two pumps in 16 weeks. A third pump was later added to the order because of the efficiency and small footprint of the HMD / Kontro LMV-8015 pump. To learn more about Oliver Equipment Company, visit the company’s Website at OEC also offers Field Engineering Support to provide Equipment and System Troubleshooting, Installation Reviews and Start-Up Assistance, Maintenance, Engineering, and Operator Training, as well as Engineering Design Review of chronic “bad-actor” equipment. With OEC since 1998, Pete Koinis, OEC Service Manager, spent one year with HMD / Kontro before becoming a Field Service Engineer for Sundyne. For the past four years, Pete has focused on the HMD / Kontro product offering. With a roster of other dedicated employees that range from Eddie Boykin, Lead Mechanic to Cindy Bonura who oversees Sizing and Quoting, to Steve Schott, Tab Taylor, Chase Griffin, and Vince Sicola, expert OEC salesmen with over two decades of hands-on HMD / Kontro knowledge, OEC carries the day in providing in-depth expertise as it proudly represents and services HMD / Kontro equipment.

Diane boasts, “Shipping logistics certainly keep my work days varied and busy!” On a personal level, Diane loves to shop, celebrate holidays, and spend lots of off-time with family and friends. Family is key with most of her time spent with her husband Dave and their two children, Lauren 20 and Kai 16. A constant houseful of kids and friends keeps Diane young and happy!
