These pumps are of similar construction to ECC type and are usually located within the refrigerated cargo tank of a marine gas carrier to transfer such fluids as LPG, Ethylene, LNG, etc. These units are available for all applications of Gas Carriers and are used for main cargo unloading, stripping, spray and emergency (retractable) service.

Flow capacities range from 20 to 2500 M3/HR and with heads up to 200 meters on single stage pumps.

A single stage design is most often used, although multi-stage pumps are used for some duties. The TEM insures negligible thrust load on the bearings and therefore, provides prolonged life. The bearing lubrication flow and motor coolant flow are generated by the pressure available from the impeller and systematically routed through various restrictions to reduce pressure before finally being returned to an area of lower pressure.

Electric power feed cables and deck penetration assemblies provided by Cryodynamics meet the requirements of all the major ship classification societies.

Special designs are available to handle cargoes that are likely to suffer particulate contamination such as LPG.
