Submersible Turbine Pumps

 

The submersible turbine pump (STP) is only used on UST systems that have pressurized piping systems.   There are several manufacturer's of STPs rated for use with petroleum and/or CERCLA classified chemicals.

 

STPs are typically comprised of several major component parts.   These include the:

         Packer/Manifold

         the Discharge Head

         the Centrifugal Pump Motor

         Riser Pipe & Pump Shaft Assembly

 

They are typically rated according to horsepower (e.g. 3/4 HP, 1.5 HP, 2.0 HP, etc.).  

 

They also come in different colors designed to help you identify what type of liquid they are rated for use (e.g. gasoline, ethanol, bio-diesel, etc.).

 

STPs must be UL® rated, compatible with the product stored in the tank, and have a Comm 10 Material Approval for use with UST systems installed within the State of Wisconsin.
