Diesel America Completes Diesel Pump O r d e r
-Literature A v a i l a b le Douglas L. Oehrlein of Diesel America, Inc., New Orleans, La., recently announced the delivery of 25 lightweight diesel pumps to boat and barge operator Hollywood Marine, Houston, Texas.
Mr. Oehrlein recently recalled: "Hollywood was one of the first companies to try our new lightweight diesel pumps. Initially they began converting their existing pumps over with our diesel under our Repower Program. However, as their experience grew with our pumps, they finally elected to purchase all new pumps. The new line of lightweight diesel pumps weigh only about 80 to 85 pounds, and start easily with a recoil rope-type starter. The units are diecast aluminum pumps with cast iron volute and impellor. The housing is epoxy coated and the unit comes in a protective roll cage. The new pumps are powered by Yanmar L40 air-cooled diesels which operate at 3,600 rpm. The unique package brings Hollywood Marine the size, starting convenience, cost and weight of gasoline- powered pumps along with the fuel economy, safety, long life and reliability associated with diesel engines." Diesel America produces a full line of lightweight diesel pumps including centrifugal, trash and diaphram. The company builds special- purpose fire pumps, diesel power compressors, pressure washers, generators, and other special-purpose diesel equipment.
