FOILEX TDS Pumps are all based on our patented "Twin Disc Screw" Technology developed by FOILEX resulting in up to 70% higher capacity than traditional Archimedian Screw Pumps. The unique TDS Pump Design will give you operational advantages in four different ways.
  • High Capacity when pumping low to medium viscosity oils at full speed, or..
  • Efficient Pumping of extreme high viscosity oils at low speed.
  • Small Outer Dimensions for emergency operations through narrow tank inlets.
  • Exchangable Discharge Size for minimum pipe resistans when pumping high viscosity oils.
  • All FOILEX TDS Skimmers are equiped with our onboard TDS Pumps with open exposed pump screw area for efficient handling of high viscous oil and oil/water emulsions.

    When used separate as independent Off-Loading Pump, the FOILEX TDS Pumps can be set up in three different configurations.

  • Free & Open for pumping high viscosity oils mixed with debris at low speed.
  • Suction Pipe for off-loading low to medium viscosity oils down to tank bottom.
  • Inline Pipe for booster pump applications in pipe/hose systems.

  • .
    The TDS Pumps are hydraulically driven, powered by Foilex Hydraulic Powerpacks or available ships hydraulics. Foilex also provide suitable Hose Packages for connection of the Pumps and Powerpacks. Area of operation for the TDS Pumps are off-loading or transfer pumping of high viscous products such as crude oil, bunker oil and emulsions.
    They are all portable and easy to use but also suited for fixed installations in various types of oil combating vessels or skimmer systems.
