How Submersible Pumping Systems Work

Submersible pumps are available in a wide variety, and each type has unique applications. To operate efficiently, the pump motor must be completely sealed, and the pumps must be completely submerged in the pumped media as they can’t work in the air. Here’s how they work.

The Working Principle

The sealed motor in a submersible pump turns an impeller – enclosed in the pump housing. As the impeller rotates, the media is pushed into the pump inlet while the impeller accelerates the fluid, forcing it into the discharge line.   

The pump pushes the media to the surface by transforming energy from rotary to kinetic and then into pressure energy. Submersible pumps are considered multi-level centrifugal pumps that operate in a vertical position.

Variations of Features

Choosing the right size of the pump and power required for completing the job is necessary. Selecting the wrong pump size means having excess horsepower and insufficient flow. It can also lead to impeller, seal, and shaft failures.     

Moreover, the user must understand the metallurgic makeup of the impeller. Whether made from hard chrome, cast iron, or stainless steel, the type of impeller affects how the pump handles the application.  

Why You Should Choose Submersible Pumps

You can select submersible pumps from a diverse variety. Since they’re submerged in fluids, submersible pumps work silently, and cavitation is never an issue. Moreover, there’s no spike in pressure when the fluid flows through the pump.

Fuel management system improves the performance of the gas station

In addition to choosing the best equipment for your gas station, you also need to stay on top of regular gas station maintenance and upgrade for enhanced productivity. We’re an unfailing, top-of-the-line gas pump and petroleum equipment supplier offering services across various locations in Rhode Island. We also offer 24/7/365 emergency service on-site repair and logistics.

Our products include everything from fuel storage solutions to power management systems, gas station swivels, and nozzles.

Top 4 New Year’s Resolutions for C-Store Owners in 2022








Gilbarco Veeder-Root Top 4 New Year's Resolutions for C-Store Owners in 2022 We are almost one month into 2022… have you made a plan to achieve your goals?

If not, here’s a refresher on what you should be doing this year:


According to a study, 64% of us will apparently abandon our New Year’s resolutions within a month, so we thought we’d share some new ideas to replace the ones you didn’t quite keep up with. 

Here are some resolutions that fuel and convenience retailers need to add to their list for 2022. 

NEXT-LEVEL CX 

Take your customer experience to the next level this year. The modern customer experience demands a frictionless shopping experience from fill-up to checkout. Here are three ways to up your CX game: 

1. Whether you need help with staffing or long lines, Passport® Express Lane™ is one of the most cost-effective solutions to optimize your operations. Committing to a self-checkout strategy is the first step in creating next-level CX. Express Lane gives everyone, including managers, employees, and customers – more flexibility. 

2. Express Ordering is another smart solution that helps c-stores set themselves apart with fresh food options. By automating the ordering process, Express Ordering puts the consumer in control – driving increased loyalty and upsell opportunities. 

3. Every store’s customer data needs to be secure. Passport POS and Encore® 700 S fuel dispensers come EMV-ready and PCI-certified out of the box to ensure your customers’ private information stays secure.  

DEFinite ADVANTAGE

Demand for diesel exhaust fluid is rising. The percentage of DEF pumps in the overall automotive DEF supply mode increased from 14% in 2011 to 40% in 2019, according to market research firm Reportlinker.

This is due to more stringent environmental regulations and the manufacturing of new DEF-compatible vehicles that are replacing the old ones.

For retailers with Gilbarco’s Encore S fuel dispensers or later, the DEF equipment cabinet(s) can be added left or right oriented or on either side of the fueling position, allowing for even more convenience and create loyalty with your diesel customer base.

COMBAT CORROSION

Now is the perfect time to commit to quality fuel. Part of that commitment means protecting your underground storage tanks.

The Veeder-Root HydrX Fuel Conditioning System combats in-tank corrosion by providing continuous water removal within diesel underground storage tanks. The system’s unique design removes water from the lowest point in the tank, preventing water from stagnating on the tank bottom and breeding microbial contaminants. The integrated filtration removes entrained water, rust, sand, and microbial particulate from the fuel, polishing it before returning clean fuel back to the tank.

Learn how the HydrX Fuel Conditioning System prevents corrosion from eating away at the bottom line for Cumberland Farms.

LEVEL UP YOUR ATG

And finally, resolve to upgrade your automatic tank gauge to the industry’s latest, most reliable ATG equipment with the TLS-450PLUS and Central Device Management (CDM).

The TLS-450PLUS console provides an expanded, advanced feature set at a lower price point than the TLS-350 console without needing to replace your probes or sensors. It also unlocks compatibility with other solutions like HydrX.

CDM is a server-based software package to manage your entire network of sites, ensuring your ATG consoles are always up to date with the latest features and security updates.

THE BOTTOM LINE

For 2022 and beyond, focus on solutions that make your operations more frictionless, efficient, secure, and connected.

Whether it’s on the forecourt, underneath it, or in the cloud, Gilbarco Veeder-Root is the only solutions provider that covers every area of your fuel and convenience business. As your partner for what’s next, let’s see if we can help you beat the stats and keep your new year’s resolution.

What to Do When Your Gas Station is Losing Business?

As long as people need cars and cars need fuel, gas stations will be around. Gas stations can usually maintain a steady stream of income and profit from the business for years and decades. However, when there is a dip in demand—such as the one we experienced at the start of the pandemic—gas stations can experience loss or a decrease in profits. 

For a gas station to regain its business, it must offer excellent services to its clients. Here are a few easy ways for any gas station to recover from a diminishing reputation. 

1. Establish an Online Presence

Having a functional website has become the necessity of every business today, and gas stations are not an exception. No matter how scarcely or densely populated an area might be, no gas station is safe from its competitors. When a service station provides sufficient information about its products and services online, it can save many customers from quite a lot of hassle. Look for a unique selling point to offer your website viewers that is unlike anything your competitors offer.  

A customer’s review



2. Address the Negative Feedback

Online reviews can have a significant impact on a business’s profitability in this age. Consumers tend to abstain from engaging with any infamous companies that are known to disappoint their clients. Negative feedback needs to be handled smartly so the sentiment doesn’t spread to the rest of your prospective customers. Reply and apologize to all the negative reviews you find online to showcase your willingness to improve. Invest in petroleum equipment solutions that ensure you provide your customers with the products and services that exceed their expectations. 

3. Appeal your Customers Visually

Despite the quality of the products and services your gas station provides, you will lose repeat business if your business fails to appease the visitors visually. The outdoor, as well as the indoor design of your gas station, should be able to attract the target market of your service station. Gas stations can take the help of innovative petroleum equipment manufacturers who can make their business operations run smoother and offer them a chance to reinvent their business. John W. Kennedy Company is a Petroleum Equipment Supply Company that has helped many businesses across the US regain their market share and helped them reach their profitability targets within months.

What’s In It for Me? 5 Benefits of Outdoor EMV








When it comes to outdoor EMV, we all know the costs and consequences of not upgrading. And sure, when you upgrade, you’re protecting consumers from fraud and avoiding chargebacks – that’s the goal. But there’s one other important question: What does my business get out of it?
In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of outdoor EMV – and many of them have less to do with security and more to do with marketing your business.

1. Bang for your Bandwidth

Today, a high-speed connection is necessary on your forecourt for a variety of important reasons – not just to support chip card readers.

That high-speed bandwidth is the key to all the features now becoming standard in the minds of consumers.

2. Go Contactless

The popularity of contactless is rapidly growing and you need a high-speed connection to support this new payment method.

Since Gilbarco first introduced Pay-at-the-Pump, speed and security have become the main objectives of payment terminals on the forecourt. Contactless is the next natural progression in payment technology.

Not only are contactless transactions 10x faster than a traditional “dip” transaction, but they’re also far more secure thanks to encryption made possible by that high-speed connection you got with your EMV upgrade.

Then add a global pandemic to the equation. Adoption of contactless payment was already on the rise before COVID-19, but the pandemic has only accelerated the trend, according to Visa.
By The Numbers: Digital Payments Are Here TO StayImage: Visa

3. Moving Merchandise with Media

The standard forecourt now includes fuel dispensers with color screens and some level of media program.
Gilbarco Encore 700S

Retailers that use media on the forecourt aren’t doing it to be trendy or flashy, they’re making a strategic decision to bring more foot traffic into the store.

Research shows media at the pump can generate up to a 39% sales increase on promoted items.

To get media on the forecourt, you need that high-speed connection that we keep mentioning.

4. Customers Want It

There are plenty of myths about EMV (read about those here), but one of them includes the notion that consumers don’t know or care about chip card protection at the pump.

A recent study on that subject tells a different story.

Via TNS:

“Sixty-five percent of respondents said they prefer to use pay-at-the-pump facilities that are EMV compliant, demonstrating a heightened level of awareness among consumers for what many perceive as an industry issue,” said Dan Lyman, head of payments market North America for TNS. “[…], this is a clear call to action for retailers who have not yet upgraded.”

5. Peace of Mind

All features and benefits aside, EMV technology really is about protecting your business by protecting your customers. For many retailers, upgrading simply means a better night’s sleep. Knowing their businesses won’t be hit with fines and fees helps them rest easy.

If you’ve missed the EMV deadline, there’s still a way to get back on track.








So You Missed the EMV Deadline, What Now?

At long last, the outdoor EMV deadline for the U.S. has passed, but that doesn’t mean the story is over yet.

From now on, chargebacks from fraud that occurs on unprotected forecourts are now the responsibility of the retailer, not the banks.

And despite multiple deadline delays, only half of fuel retailers (48 percent) have met the EMV compliance mandates by the April 17th, according to a new survey.

The right side of the graphic above splits retailers into three categories, but it’s the 25% of retailers who are “unsure” when they’ll complete their EMV upgrades that present the greatest challenges.

With limits on manpower, equipment, and hardware, those who didn’t plan ahead will now have to wait in line.


What Can You Do While You Wait?

Fraud MonitoringFirst, consider measures to limit the damage. Identify and prioritize sites that are in the areas most prone to fraud. Put those sites as close to the front of the line for upgrades as possible.

While not fool-proof, tamper-evident tape can help deter criminals, but experienced fraudsters know how to cover their tracks.

There are also fraud monitoring systems through Visa or other payment processers that send risky transactions inside the store to pay.

The most drastic option you can take is turning off your payment terminals at the fuel dispenser altogether, forcing customers to pay inside on EMV protected PIN pads. The problem here is that the loss in business from inconvenienced customers may cost more than the potential fraud.


Missed EMV Deadline
Read about the potential losses that unprotected businesses should expect with the liability shift here.

The Bottom Line

Fraud liability has shifted, but the plan of action remains the same. If you haven’t started your upgrade process yet, contact us as soon as possible. We have financing options and EMV discounts available.
