WE SET THE STANDARD

FE PETRO® brand submersible pumping systems set the standard by which all other fuel pumping systems are measured. With best-in-class flow rates and backed by a long history of dependability, FE PETRO® pumps are responsible for delivering fuel to thousands of customers around the globe, day in and day out.


The Performance Leader

Unique features like variable speed technology and the MagShell™ design found only on FE PETRO® pumps deliver the industry’s best-in-class flow rates.

Dependability & Reliability

A pump has to be reliable, it has to be safe, and it has to perform. That's why thousands of station owners around the world have trusted FE PETRO® pumps and the Franklin Electric motors that drive them to keep their business flowing for over 25 years.

Safe Servicing

The rock-solid design of FE PETRO® pumps has remained virtually unchanged since day one, meaning we can, and still do, service our pumps installed since 1988 with maintenance safeguard features and full backward compatibility.

VARIABLE SPEED

With faster fill times during peak hours and power savings during non-peak hours, FE PETRO® 2 Hp and 4 Hp variable speed submersible pumping systems allow you to maximize profits while mitigating operating expenses.

CONVERT TO VARIABLE SPEED

Higher Flow Rates

The MagVFC™ variable speed controller ramps the STP up and down as-needed to provide optimal flow rates at all fueling points. The result is faster, more consistent flow rates than fixed speed systems at virtually the same cost of ownership.

Energy Efficient

Because a variable speed system is constantly providing only the necessary power to achieve desired flow rates, the system only consumes as much energy as is needed. Get energy savings during non-peak business hours and increased flow during peak hours.

Minimize Hydraulic Hammer

Hydraulic hammer is a sudden pressure spike resulting from a stoppage in flow that can be exaggerated in fixed speed pumping systems. A variable speed system significantly minimizes the effects of hydraulic hammer like accelerated wear on equipment.

High Flow Rates

A 4 hp variable speed STP with MagShell® provides the highest flow rates of any single 4" submersible pump available on the market today.

Outlast, Outperform

With an all stainless steel shell construction powered by the legendary Franklin
Electric motor, MagShell® equipped STPs are built for maximum uptime and long term performance backed by a proven track record that spans more than four decades.

Expanded Flow

Available on FE PETRO® 2 Hp and 4 Hp models, the MagShell® provides an expanded flow area, creating significantly higher flow rates equivalent to having one more nozzle open during peak operating times.

TURBINE PUMP INTERFACE

Turbine Pump Interface is a powerful tool that creates a network between your FE PETRO® STP controllers and EVO™ Series ATGs. Through TPI, the tank gauge can be programmed to respond to faults in the submersible pumping system and react with intelligence that pump controllers alone cannot.

SEE TPI IN ACTION

Pump In Water Automation

When the water level in a tank approaches the pump intake, the tank gauge will enter alarm mode and automatically shut down the pump, protecting the system and con

Leveling & Priority Modes

When managing two storage tanks of the same product ‘Leveling Mode’ can keep both tanks at the same percentage full without the use of a syphon bar between the two tanks.

Remote Pump Interaction

By networking the intelligent controllers to the fuel management system via TPI, a technician can remotely connect to the site to review the logged event history and view the status.

2HP Pumps - IFS Wide.psd
FILTER FUEL WITHOUT SACRIFICING PERFORMANCE

An Intake Filter Screen (IFS) provides fuel filtration for the entire system down to about the size of a grain of sand (0.009” openings). It’s designed to keep harmful debris, sediment, and tank corrosion from entering the pumping system and creating service events including dispenser filter changes.

 

2HP Pumps - IFS Highlight.psd

Intake Filter Screens

Fuel Filtering

Stop debris from entering the pumping system and causing system damage or slowdowns. The output performance of the pump is maintained to that of the standard end bell while only adding about 1” to the overall length.

Self-Cleaning

An IFS self-cleans itself, so you don’t have to worry about pulling the pump to clean it. When the pump turns off, the slight back-flush of product caused by the check valve closing pushes any debris off the face of the filter.

Factory or Retrofit Installed

An IFS can be easily retrofit installed on existing FE PETRO® submersible pumps as well as competitive 4” pumps. You can also have it factory-installed on any new submersible pump.

Standard Features

Variable Speed
With faster fill times during peak hours and power savings during non-peak hours, variable speed submersible pumping systems allow you to maximize profits with consistent flow rates while mitigating operating expenses.

MagShell®
The patented stainless steel MagShell® is designed to maximize flow rate capabilities, potential throughput, and profits. By expanding the pump motor shell, the MagShell® increases the area for product flow by 45%.

Variable Length
The patented telescoping pump shaft lets installers adjust the length of the pump onsite for the perfect fit.

Active Air Eliminator
FE PETRO® STPs come standard with active air elimination, which eliminates air through the highest point in the pump head at all times when the pump is running, assuring air does not pass into discharge piping.

Safety and Ease of Maintenance
FE PETRO® STPs include a contractor electrical disconnect, which requires loosening only one bolt, allowing motor wiring to be disconnected without venting the dangerous tank vapors into the sump when servicing FE PETRO® submersible products.

Simple Servicing
If ever required, the pump can be easily removed from the tank by unthreading three bolts. There is no need to disconnect the syphon system or to remove the leak detector from the system to service the STP.

Manual Pressure Relief
As a standard FE PETRO® feature, a vent screw is provided to bleed line pressure to zero when necessary. By turning this screw, product is diverted back to the tank, dropping line pressure to zero. This reduces fuel discharged into the sump manhole or dispenser pan during servicing, further protecting service technicians and the environment.
