An Evaluation of Power Take-Off Application Problems - Truck Mounted, Fluid Transfer Pumping Systems 640255
The transportation of fluids by tank truck has grown to rather large proportions. This is probably largely due to the flexibility of the truck in general, which in turn, is enhanced by the use of PTO driven, truck mounted, pumps that economically and quickly take on and discharge the load.
Because of the wide range and varying conditions of materials handled, as well as other varying conditions, many problems exist. This paper deals with some of the most usual problems encountered. It is not intended to be a complete design manual for all PTO driven fluid transfer pump systems, but it should give the system designer a certain basic insight into the aspects which must be considered and properly handled.
