Reverso Pumps Blog
Reverso Pumps makes the world's best Oil Change Systems, Pumps, Fuel Primers and Fuel Polishing Systems. We service over 20 different industries and our products are a key component of preventive maintenance for your diesel engines, generators and diesel pumps.
A: For the integrity of the oil system it is always wise to install a shut-off valve at the oil pan of the equipment. This insures that in the event of a failure in the hose or oil pump that the engine does not loose oil and fail.
Also, the pump would work better if you can mount it a little lower on the bulkhead. Your impeller will not have to work as hard to lift the oil and priming will be quicker.
Answer - Your representative could be right. On some of the newer vessels the transmission requires a more refined oil than that of the engine or generator. With our GP-3013, a 3 valve oil change system, there is the possibility of cross-contamination. If your transmission requires the more refined oil, and it is contaminated with engine oil, it could cause damage to the transmission. Typically, we have seen these new transmissions on the new, high performance vessels.
We would suggest that you confirm the oil requirements of your transmission. If it requires, for example, a 30W, like the engine, then you should have no problem using a 3-valve system with no worry of cross-contamination. If you find that you need a different oil for the transmission, you can use our GP-3012, a 2-valve oil change system, for your engine and generator. Then use our GP-311 or OP-6, reversible pump, solely for the transmission.

Thanks to Gerry.
He said, "this pump is used to transfer and polish diesel fuel and is 10 years old. He's replaced the impeller a few times but it runs for hours on end with no problem."
Great to hear Gerry! Thanks!
