The Benchmark in LPG

Blackmer offers a full line of LPG pumps and gas compressors, designed for maximum performance and reliability. LPG is an abbreviation for "liquefied petroleum gas" and encompasses several other hydrocarbon gases like propane and butane. These LPG operations can often cause excess rigors on equipment, as cavitation in less lubricated propane applications is a common issue. All Blackmer propane pumps feature a cavitation suppression liner that helps minimize the damaging effects of cavitation in LPG applications. Our full line of stationary propane pumps and gas compressors help LPG operators efficiently load and unload their transport means, speed up product transfer, complete tank evacuation and improve vapor recovery to meet regulatory and business profitability objectives. 


The true measure of our experience in product transfer and recovery includes working in the most rugged, remote outdoor environments and efficiently handling LPG and butane in most demanding applications, including:


LG Sliding Vane Pump

Features unique self-adjusting vanes that ensure fast and consistent flow of LPG, Autogas, propane, and butane makes it ideal for metering applications, and are self-priming, designed to run dry for short periods, line-stripping capabilities, and volumetric output consistency

  • LGL – Series of propane pumps for designed for LPG applications like cylinder filling, motor fueling, bulk transfer, vaporizers, and on bobtails and transports. LGL Series propane pumps are equipped with a cavitation suppression liner.
LB Reciprocating Gas Compressor

Gas compressors deliver high efficiency in handling liquefied gases. Designed to give maximum performance and reliability under the most severe service conditions, these propane compressors excel at railcar unloading and vapor recovery applications.

  • LB –  Robust single stage, oil-free compressors that excel in handling LPG, propane, and butane. These propane compressors are built to withstand thermal and mechanical shock with ductile iron pressure parts.
Regenerative Turbine Pump

Specifically designed and precision-built for high-pressure transfer in Autogas applications through the innovative impeller design, which optimizes hydraulic performance resulting in high differential pressures even at low flow rates.

  • RC – Low maintenance, single-stage impeller pump excels in Autogas applications.
Bypass Valves

Differential bypass valves are designed to protect pumps and system components from excessive pressure damage. Blackmer offers five different models that provide full-flow pressure control with easy-installation NPT tapped ports.
