The Evolution of Pump Technology First Generation Pump Technology In 1962, Atlas Copco JC Carter Pumps introduced the first generation LNG submerged motor pump. These first generation pumps were manufactured from 1962 to 1973. In the early days of the Cryogenics Industry, pumps were of the shaft seal type. Eliminating the shaft seal was an important improvement in Cryogenic Hydrocarbon Liquid plant safety and in the evolution and design of SMP’s for improved performance and handling of hydrocarbon fluids. This new design of SMP’s also provides for improved plant safety and reduced maintenance costs to the owner/operators. The invention of the Cryogenic Submerged Motor Pump required Carter to design its own special bearings, electrical cables and electrical feed-throughs. The pumps were small and single-staged and operated at 3 000 and 3 600 RPM. Impellers were axially balanced with back wear rings, so no balance drums were included in the designs. At that time, electrical feed-throughs were single, gasketed seal type.
Second Generation Pump Technology The introduction of the In-Tank Pump in 1973 brought a new level of safety to the industry by eliminating bottom or low side penetrations in the storage tanks. With the need for better NPSHR for all in-tank applications, Atlas Copco JC Carter Pumps introduced the Spiral or Helical Inducer.
Spiral (Helical Inducer)
2nd Generation Pump Drawing
Improvements made in the design: • Higher Suction Speed Designs improve NPSHR • Reduced vibration when operating near the design point • Change in diffuser design for longer bushing life on multi-stage HP pumps • Improved bearing designs • Balance Drum Assemblies became standard on all pumps
Partial 1st Generation Pump Drawing
Driving 3rd Generation Technology While virtually all competitive systems sold today throughout the world still use second generation technology, Atlas Copco JC Carter Pumps has continued to establish itself as an industry leader with the introduction of third generation of pump technology in 2003. This new technology offers many advantages over the previous generation designs:
• Higher specific speed hydraulics which offer slimmer profile machines, lower tip speeds and reduced rotating mass.
• Reduced power consumption due to higher pump
• Smallest column size for in-tank pumps in the industry
efficiency — 5-15% higher efficiency than industry average making it the greenest cryogenic pump available
Atlas Copco JC Carter Pumps is the one and only
manufacturer to offer the patented HyPerInducer®.
• Higher plant revenues over previous designs as a result
Originally developed with space age technology for
of higher pump efficiencies (less boil off gas and lower
jet engine fuel pumps, this unique design allows tank
pumping levels to be lowered 1-2 meters, providing
• Smaller boil off gas compressors and condensers required reducing capital investment • Lowest NPSH values in the industry and higher net storage tank capacity due to patented HyPerInducer® — More than one meter of additional tank available storage.
access to more live storage capacity.
Modular Advantages: • Component Modularity allows stages of the pump to be added to increase head while maintaining a constant flow • Easy to maintain because the maintenance groups are familiar with repeatable designs/component assemblies.
3rd Generation Design Advantages over 2nd Generation Design: • A smaller size pump means a smaller pump column • Better NPSH means access to more tank capacity
“Up to 15% higher efficiency than industry average.”

“As the first company in this industry, our team of experienced engineers, technicians and staff bring combined knowledge, technology and innovative solutions to the market.” Our unique Component Modularity design is made up of separate stages which can be easily added to increase head.

Our Solution for You
SMPs Designed for More Energy Efficiency Carbon dioxide (CO2) is produced from a combination of fossil fuels. It is a by-product of all power plants where fuel is converted to CO2. The combustion of all carbon containing fuels will yield CO2 (and in most cases, water). For example: CH4 + 2O2
CO2 + 2H2O
CO2 causes severe health effects when concentration xceeds certain limits. Increase in CO2 emissions also causes greenhouse effect. Power plants using coal as fuel also produce carbon monoxide (CO). CO poisoning is the main type of fatal air poisoning in most countries. Atlas Copco JC Carter Pumps’s 3rd generation pumps are designed for a greener world by using less power as a result of providing the best-in-class efficiency. By using less energy to operate our pumps, power plants
