GoatThroat Pumps for Automotive Use

You probably already know that a dependable automotive drum pump is truly the engine that keeps real engines running. A GoatThroat® pump makes an ideal vehicle fleet chemical pump for the efficient transfer of liquids in repair environments or facilities where fleets are managed.

Are you doing enough to create a no-spill environment? Our pumps are ideal for decanting cleaners and degreasing agents, as well as mixing fuels with precise amounts of additives. American-made GoatThroat pumps comply with ISO standards for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) handling. What’s more, they are designed to work flawlessly with most mainstream DEF containers. The highlight of these pumps is the way they allow you to transfer pressurized liquids up to six feet above a container. They are capable of doing this because GoatThroat pumps don’t rely on gravity the way most mainstream pumps do.

Our Pumps are the Solution

GoatThroat pumps keep workers in the automotive industry safer and bring added precision and efficiency to a work environment. GoatThroat pumps are ideal for when you need to transfer DEF, windshield-washing fluid, coolants, oils, gasoline, lubricants, transmission fluids, brake fluids, and many more substances that are used in automotive facilities daily. GoatThroat pumps maintain the purity of DEF that is essential for performance. By using our pumps, you can maintain fluid parity and keep your machines running, which will help your auto repair shop avoid costly downtime. A GoatThroat pump offers a high level of precision that can be achieved with just a few plunger strokes. What’s more, a one-tap method of dispensing liquid helps to cut down on spills that can be caused by applying too much pressure or struggling to release liquid content. This precision flow control helps to eliminate waste and reduce the risk of messy, dangerous situations. Whether transferring windshield washing fluid, oils, coolants or any other number of liquids, a GoatThroat pump can do it.

In the automotive industry, efficient transfer of liquids is important. Between an auto repair shop and an automotive assembly line, there are dozens of dangerous chemicals being stored. GoatThroat automotive drum pumps allow handlers to safely transfer and dispense automotive fluids between containers, as well as avoid chemical spills and maintain a safe environment to work in.

Ideal for use in auto repair and fleet management facilities, GoatThroat Pumps are safe for use with more than 1,200 liquids — including DEF, coolants, windshield washing fluids, gasoline, diesel fuel, additives, lubricants and transmission fluids. GoatThroat pumps are suitable for liquids with viscosities of up 270 CP, 1400 SSU, 300 CS. For synthetic oils and oils which incorporate solvents will use the GT300 with Viton seals. The pneumatic adapter will work with your air system.

With just a few strokes of the plunger, the container will be pressurized and liquids can be dispensed with one touch of the tap, as easily as opening and closing a faucet. Precise flow control helps conserve inventory by eliminating the guesswork from dispensing and measuring precise amounts of liquids.

Automotive Applications

  • Transferring fuel, lubricants, brake and transmission fluids to vehicles
  • Decanting and applying cleaners and degreasers
  • Mixing fuels with precise amounts of additives without drips or spills
  • Pressurized liquids can be easily transferred to levels up to 6 feet higher than the container, which is impossible with traditional gravity-fed liquid transfer methods.

Pumps for DEF

Because the purity of Diesel Exhaust Fluid is essential to performance, GoatThroat offers DEF handling solutions that maintain purity of DEF while delivering superior performance at an affordable price. A few strokes of this mobile automotive drum pump allows for smooth and safe dispensing and transfer of DEF at up to 3 – 4 gallons GPM with only 4 psig. A BGA pneumatic adapter can be added so that DEF is always available without needing to recharge the drum by hand. The equipment listed here complies with the ISO standards for proper handling of DEF. GoatThroat Pumps are proudly made in the USA, and our DEF handling systems work with the variety of DEF containers offered in today’s market.

Fleet Operations use GoatThroat for Brake Wash and DEF

REDUCING VOCs An important lynchpin to customer service and customer retention is a smooth operating auto fleet service center. Most fleet operations use a broad range of chemicals including degreasers, windshield fluids among others, and they are always searching for the best, most efficient ways to handle them. Inventory management is a critical component of the manager’s day to day operation. Questions that always arise are whether it is better to purchase smaller, more manageable quantities of the fluid at higher prices which can be poured directly out of a 1 gallon or a 5 gallon container or to purchase larger quantities and then have to deal with transferring the fluids out of the container safely. To top it off, OSHA and EPA have increased environmental health and safety (EHS) regulations so decision making in this area is critical. A service manager in Connecticut recently faced this dilemma.

Acetone for Auto Body Repair

Auto Body Shop – Integrity Auto Specialists uses GoatThroat for Safety with Acetone

In just over a decade, Integrity Auto Specialists has grown into a dynamic leader in the auto reconditioning business with over 25
fleet operations from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains. When a car dealership receives truck load of cars which have
traveled hundreds – or thousands of miles on the flat bed, many times there are small chips in the paint and chrome from rocks and debris. Integrity Auto Specialists craftsmen fix these so the customer gets a perfect car.

At the Chesapeake, Virginia Headquarters, technicians fill 1 gallon container of proprietary mixed thinners for distribution to the
craftsmen at the centers throughout the US. Using a pull action pump with leather seal, the technicians had problems with the fluid when the pump seals failed.. In 2002, in an effort to create a more responsible corporate environmental strategy, and to improve worker safety, Integrity Auto switched to GoatThroat Pumps for this filling station. Early in 2003, after several months of use without any problems or failures, management bought a GoatThroat pump for each of its service centers throughout the
US for dispensing acetone.

Kept in a safety cabinet because it is a regulated flammable, acetone is used regularly throughout the day. The 55 gallon drum must
have bonding and grounding wires attached prior to dispensing the acetone. John George, manager of the Western Region, points out that his people are still using the GoatThroat after 10 years. “The previous pump which we used lasted only a few months
before it began to fail. We had to throw it away because it was too much trouble to replace the leather seal. We have been using our
GoatThroat as a hand pump for over 3 years. We have had to replace the tap o-ring a couple of times, but the whole replacement takes less that 5 minutes, and then we are ready to go again.

Recently, we added the BillyGoat Shop Air adapter which eliminates pumping the container by hand, and are very pleased with it. The shop air adapter is set at 2psi which is a very low pressure, and our fluids are always ready for use when ever we need them . We simply open up the tap and dispense a quart or a gallon depending on our need. These pumps have eliminated VOCs from the acetone drum except when we are dispensing it. This tool has improved the safety of our workers and helped us to be more compliant with local regulations. And we don’t spend time cleaning up spills any more.”

Fleet Operations use GoatThroat for Brake Wash and DEF

REDUCING VOCs

An important lynchpin to customer service and customer retention is a smooth operating auto fleet service center. Most fleet operations use a broad range of chemicals including degreasers, windshield fluids among others, and they are always searching for the best, most efficient ways to handle them. Inventory management is a critical component of the manager’s day to day operation. Questions that always arise are whether it is better to purchase smaller, more manageable quantities of the fluid at higher prices which can be poured directly out of a 1 gallon or a 5 gallon container or to purchase larger quantities and then have to deal with transferring the fluids out of the container safely. To top it off, OSHA and EPA have increased environmental health and safety (EHS) regulations so decision making in this area is critical.

A service manager in Connecticut recently faced this dilemma. To save money for his company, he began purchasing 30 gallon containers of a very evaporative degreaser together with the recommended dispensing pump. However, he found that the recommended pump did not seal off the bung hole and all of the expected saving were evaporating into the air. Further, VOC’s such as hexane and methanol in the air are not healthy for workers, so the concern for the health and safety of the workers became very important. He looked for a pump which would eliminate the evaporation and give him the control in dispensing. Finally he purchased a GoatThroat Pump. According to the manager, “We don’t have problems with evaporation any more. My workers are no longer exposed to the hexane and methanol in the air. We can pump 1 or 2 strokes with the piston and then the drip proof faucet lets us dispense exactly how much degreasing fluid we need to fill our canisters. This is a great cost saver for my company because the volume buying is working and now we are delivering the fluids safely for the guys in the shop.”

 

Auto Thermomostat Maker Saves in the Heat Room

POLLUTION PREVENTION

A company which manufactures thermostats and other devises for the automobile industry in Waltham Massachusetts needed GoatThroat Pumps. Recently, the Ford Motor company required this company to fulfill the requirements for ISO14001 and become registered before January 2004. Developing and implementing the plan took over two years, and they achieved their registration by the deadline. One of the problem areas which they had with regard to chemical storage and dispensing was in their boiler room for the biocides and phosphates for their cooling tower and boiler room chemicals . For pollution prevention, they had established the standard which required that stringent spill containment devises and barriers needed to be put in place to contain any large spills, should they occur. As we all know, depending on the exact chemical and volume spilled, if required, the paperwork for the reporting to EPA is very time consuming, and the cost of lost chemical inventory and clean up time is not an inexpensive proposition either.

While establishing the ISO 14001 standard,

the engineers at this company discovered that if they left the drums on the side and used a gravity fed system, such as you see here , the barrier system which they would have to create to contain a spill would be required to accommodate 100% of each container in the room, and would cost thousands of dollars to build. Further research by the engineering department showed that they could substantially reduce the financial outlay by keeping the drums upright, placing them on spill sumps such as you see here, and dispensing from an upright position. Spill containment for containers placed in an upright position on a sump is 110% of the largest container – and not 100% of all containers – because there is little chance of a spill. Further, a containment sump which can hold 4 55 gallon containers can be purchased for about $125 delivered. The environmentally sound GoatThroat, which this company selected, dispenses fluids in a controlled manner using a spring-actioned tap which will deliver chemicals amounts from as little as 5 CCs to up to 4.5 gallons per minute.
