This is a very generic term for unrefined oils typically being recovered from the ground. Some crude oil may contain particulates from the oil well or recovery method. They are considered to be flammable liquids. Crude oils are later refined and used for everything from making plastics to gasoline.

Refined fuels would include petroleum based fuel oils and some Jet Fuels. Their viscosity and temperature handled can vary greatly. Normally these are handled in bulk transfer operations.
Biofuels include Biodiesel and Ethanol. These are fuels made from renewable resources and typically blended with refined fuels as additives.
Lube Oil (Machinery Lubrication)
Machinery lubrication pumps are used in everything from small backup generators to naval ships. Lube oils, as the name implies, are the liquids used to lubricate rotating and reciprocating machinery. Lube oils may be handled at higher pressures to ensure their penetration of the equipment.
Clean asphalt contains no fillers and is an oil based liquid. It is primarily used in paving roads, waterproofing liquids, and paints. Typically they are handled at elevated temperatures to reduce the viscosity of the asphalt. The pump needs a source of heat like jacketing or electric heat to prevent the product from solidifying in the pump.
- Cast iron
- Leak prevention with O-Pro® Cartridge seal
- Capacities to 280 GPM
- Jacketed for steam/oil heating prior to pump startup
Emulsions are asphalt suspended in a mixture with water or other liquids. This is done to ease the application of the asphalt. Uses would be crack filling, coating roadways, or waterproofing. These emulsions are shear sensitive and must be handled with care.
- Cast iron
- Jacketed for steam/oil heating prior to startup
- Mechanical seal options
- Capacities to 500 GPM
Filled asphalts contain particulate used in the liquids’ end applications. Examples of this would be roofing materials and hot mix plants. Typically they are handled at elevated temperatures to reduce the viscosity of the asphalt mixture. The pump needs a source of heat like jacketing or electric heat to prevent the product from solidifying in the pump.
Heat Transfer Liquids (Hot Oil)
Heat transfer liquids, heat transfer oil (HTO) or hot oil, are generally made from one of the following: mineral oil, diphenyls, modified terphenyls or polyalkalene glycols. Heat transfer liquids are used for transferring heat from a source to a point of use such as dies, presses, cooking vessels, processing equipment, etc. Most are handled at temperatures up to 600°F.
