  2. 2. Fast Flow Hydraulic Submersible Pumps New Technology Fast Flow hydraulic submersible pumps are sure to meet your pumping applications. It's the little pump – that can do the big jobs! This pump, with its heavy-duty impeller blade design, will handle abuse that most other systems cannot. The unique Fast Flow pump design utilizes suction from both sides of the impeller, eliminating the thrust-load problem associated with most centrifugal pumps. Ideal for barge compartment dewatering and water wash-down applications, the pump can easily handle sand and solids slurry.

  3. 3. Portable, Durable, Versatile, and Easy to Use The Fast Flow hydraulic submersible pump systems have No mechanical seals, wear plates, gaskets, gears, belts, valves, filters, switches, rubber impellers, or electrical parts, -and is designed to be maintenance-free. Unlike triplex plunger and most centrifugal pump systems, Fast Flow Pumps can run dry and don't suffer damage from low inlet flow cavitation. Fast Flow Pumps are self priming, small size, light weight, variable speed, and reliable. Most importantly our pumps produce very high flow rates (410 GPM, 1,100 GPM, and higher), utilizing a hydraulic-operated, double suction centrifugal pump that minimizes erosional velocity which destroys most other pumps. Though our pump discharge sizes are just 2 inch or 3 inch, our GPM rates far exceed the competitions. Most 2-inch de-watering pumps flow an average of 150 -175 GPM, an expensive drain on time at construction sites when large crews are waiting to de-water a pit. In contrast, the Fast Flow 2-inch hydraulic submersible pump can flow 410 GPM. The Mini 3 moves 600 gpm and our 4 -inch model pump will move 1100 GPM. Let us provide a free demonstration at your site! We sell complete systems including your choice of diesel/hydraulic, elect/hydraulic, or gasoline/hydraulic power units that are matched to work with the Fast Flow pump. Safety Features  No Electrical Hazard  Discharge Features Safety Cam-Lock Fittings  Operating Underwater Minimizes Personnel Exposure  Optional Debris Cage for Added Personnel Protection Great for barge pumping, oilfield waste solids pumping, pit de-watering, salvage operations, industrial plant flood protection, quarry mining pits, aeration ponds, oil spills, and pump equipment rental fleets. The Fast Flow Pump systems are also perfect for farmers who require high-volume pumping where large amounts of water have to be moved. Our small-sized, portable pumps utilize quick-connect fittings and hydraulic hoses that allow the customer to place the pump wherever it is needed. Fast Flow can provide special application systems to reduce your pump down time and significantly reduce your maintenance expenses.
  4. 4. Fast Flow Hydraulic Pumps Frequently Asked Questions We try to anticipate questions you might have about our unique hydraulic pump and provide the answers here. 1. What is so different about the Fast Flow pump as compared to other pumps? The Fast Flow has a unique double suction patented design that takes suction from both sides of the impeller that eliminates thrust load problems associated with other centrifugal pumps. In fact the impeller has no contact with the housing. It is what the Fast Flow pump does Not have, that makes it so reliable; it has no wear plates, No mechanical seals, internal bearings, bushings, gears, or rubber impellers – all the pump parts that create friction, wear, that lead to pump failure. 2. Can the Fast Flow pump run dry? Yes. It is made to run dry all day without damage to the pump. The Fast Flow has only one bearing, which is external to the pump, to lubricate. The impeller and shaft, has no contract with the housing. At our pump demos we run the pump dry at 4000 rpm without any damage. 3. Is the Fast Flow pump self priming? Yes. Because it is submersible, suction lift limitations and priming problems associated with most centrifugal pumps are eliminated. 4. How does it work without any mechanical seals, wear plates, gears, and other parts normally found inside centrifugal pumps ? Differential pressure across the impeller is equal. Fast Flow’s patented double suction eliminated the need for these parts. Most pump failures involve mechanical seal failure. 4 Fast Flow Pumps 9700 Hwy 63, Moss Point, MS 39562 Phone: (228) 475-2468 Email: Web Site:
  5. 5. 5. How does the Fast Flow pump flow rate performance compare with other pumps? The patented double suction pump produces very high flow rates. For example, with its dual intake inlets, the little 2-inch pump will move 410 GPM; typically most 2-inch pumps move about 150 GPM. In fact, it is the highest flow rate 2” pump we have tested. A powerful hydraulic motor runs the pump, making the pump light weight and portable. The whole pump head weighs only 26 pounds. And we have the new Mini 3” that flows 600 GPM that weighs 26 pounds. 6. Is the Fast Flow pump suitable as high pressure pump? The Fast Flow pump is designed to be a “high flow rate” volume pump rather than a high pressure pump. However, the little Mini 3 inch model will pump an impressive 325 feet of vertical head pressure and produce 142 psi max pump discharge pressure. 7. Is the Fast Flow pump portable? Yes. Its small size will fit into a man-hole. The 2-inch pump is about 15 inches square and weighs 26 pounds. Other pumps that can move similar flow rates usually are very heavy and often require a crane or heavy equipment lifting. The 4” inch model weighs 66 pounds but flows an impressive 1150 GPM. The Fast Flow works great in confined space areas. 8. Can the Fast Flow pumps move heavy oilfield solids and slurry? Yes. It can pump a stream of sand, mud, and viscous fluids. The Mini 3 can pump 100 BBL’s of 15 pound drilling cement in an impressive 11 minutes. And we have pumped 20 pound drill cuttings at reserve pits. The impeller has no contact with the housing, allowing passage of these materials with minimal erosion damage. It works great for pumping sewage and drilling mud solids – solids are abrasive and will eventually wear out any pump. The good news is that the Fast Flow is reliable and easy to repair in the field. 9. What type service applications are suitable for the Fast Flow pump? Sediment ponds, reserve pits, drill rig cuttings, tank cleaning sludge, construction pit de-watering, mining, barge pumping, oil spills, environmental waste clean-up, flood protection, city maintenance, sewage, farming, forest fire fighting - and many more. 10. What kind power unit is required? The 2 inch pump will require a minimum of 10 hp but can handle 100 hp HPU system. Ideally 25 hp to produce 4 to 14 gpm hydraulic flow to run the pump at maximum performance. The 4-inch pump, with its 1150 gpm flow rate, 5 Fast Flow Pumps 9700 Hwy 63, Moss Point, MS 39562 Phone: (228) 475-2468 Email: Web Site:
  6. 6. requires 25 hp to 50 hp. Fast Flow can provide diesel/hydraulic, electric/hydraulic, or gasoline/hydraulic power systems that are matched to work best with our pumps. In addition, customers can utilize existing construction equipment outfitted with auxiliary hydraulic controls to operate the pumps. Excavators, tractors, and other heavy equipment can be used to power the Fast Flow. 11. What kind of power units can Fast Flow provide? Currently we are manufacturing Kubota, John Deere HPU skid systems that are MMS compliant for offshore oilfield operations. These systems have 90 gal oil spill prevention containment and can run 2 Fast Flow pumps at same time. These systems are ideal for tank cleaning operations using one pump for wash down recirculation and the other to move the heavy solids to containment tank. We also build Kohler gasoline units that are perfect for contractors and municipal de-watering jobs. Fast Flow also builds other electrical/hydraulic HPU’s, diesel/hydraulic, and gasoline/hydraulic systems, which are matched to Fast Flow pumps. Fast Flow can provide complete systems to meet your pumping needs. 12. What are the Hydraulic fluid power requirements ? Fast Flow Mini 3" hydraulic motors require 4 to 14 gpm hydraulic flow at 2600 to 2800 psi to reach max potential. The hydraulic motors are made special and have double high pressure Viton seals that are not affected by pumping hydro- carbons. They are rated for max pressure of 3,500 psi - so we can increase vertical head pressure if necessary. The larger 4” Fast Flow hydraulic requirements are 4 to 27 gpm at 2600 psi 2800 psi for best performance. The double suction pumps all provide variable flow and variable output pressure. 13. What kind of pump maintenance is required? The pump has only one bearing external to the pump with one grease fitting that should be lubricated after use or on a weekly basis. The pump has so few parts and the simple design minimizes pump down time and Fast Flow can be repaired in the field. 14. What about pump repairs, how difficult would that be ? Simple in design - Almost anyone can repair the Fast Flow Pump – and do repairs “In the field”. This pump has only 3 main parts, Top, Bottom, and Impeller. If rope was ingested, 4 bolts can be removed to access the impeller and it is easy to remove and be back pumping within minutes. Customers do not need a trained pump mechanic -and almost anybody can repair a Fast Flow pump. 6 Fast Flow Pumps 9700 Hwy 63, Moss Point, MS 39562 Phone: (228) 475-2468 Email: Web Site:

  9. 9. Fast Flow Pumps Difficult Service Applications List 10-5-2009 We are a small company any pump equipment rental or sales opportunities are much appreciated. Our team will work really hard to provide reliable service to gain your business. The purpose of this list is to profile difficult pump jobs and identify new applications for customers. Pump Test – The Mini 3” is most popular for barge cleaning / pumping operations and oilfield reserve pit pumping jobs. The whole pump head weighs only 26 lbs, pumping water max flow rate is 600 GPM and produced 325 feet of vertical head pressure with 142 PSI pump discharge pressure! These little pumps provide variable output pressure and flow rate. Recently, we performed a demo test at drilling mud plant in Fourchon, LA. They had 500 barrel batch of 15 pound per gallon drilling cement ready for our performance test. The bay rite cement batch was also loaded with thickening gels. The new generation Mini 3" pumped 100 Barrels in less than 11 minutes. They were amazed at this new technology –and we were pretty surprised too. Fast Flow Pumps - have No mechanical seals, No wear plates, No gears, No Seals, and the impeller has no contact with the housing. It is the only centrifugal pump we know - that does not have mechanical seals. It is what the pump doesn’t have internally that makes it so reliable. The pump has only 3 main parts including top, bottom, and impeller. The pump has no internal friction - and allows passage of heavy solids with minimal erosional damage. Compared to other small submersible pumps, Fast Flow can produce very high flow rates - and we can pump drilling mud cuttings that weigh 20 pounds per gallon. Pumping abrasive solids will eventually wear out any pump, and Fast Flow pumps have proven reliable for several difficult service applications. Simple in design - Almost anyone can repair the Fast Flow Pump – “In the field”. If rope was ingested, 4 bolts can be removed to access the impeller and it is easy to remove and be back pumping within minutes. Customers do not need a trained pump mechanic -and almost anybody can repair a Fast Flow pump. Crude Solids Tank Pumping - We completed a project where our customer pumped from 110,000 barrel tank to an oil barge 826' feet distance using 3" rubber oil hose - with one Mini 3" pump. First the Mini 3 macerated the heavy paraffin crude solids, pumped and shot a full 10’ stream out into the barge. The tank was loaded with heavy paraffin crude oil sludge, heavy solids that had accumulated in the Apache crude oil tanks at Grand Isle over several years. After pumping the paraffin solids in the barge it looked like broken glass. The cleaning crew was over 2 weeks ahead of schedule, and they got the contract for the other tank which they completed using Fast Flow Pumps. 1
  10. 10. Oil Well Blow Out - 2007 Disaster response project was at Coastal Drilling Rig # 21 oil well blow out job at Abbeville, LA where we worked with Diamond Tank. This large drill rig was located in an environmentally sensitive marsh area on large rig floating barge. The drilling rig tanks were fully loaded with extra heavy oil based drilling cement when the blow out event occurred. They had 19,000 feet of stick in the ground when they hit a very high pressure gas pocket that caused the blow out event. It launched about 22,000 barrels of heavy drill mud about 500’ and completely covered the rig derrick and barge. Workers shutdown and safely evacuated the drilling rig and it did not catch fire. They transported emergency blow out team specialists to the job site to cap the wellhead – ready on standby. Unfortunately they could not cap the wellhead until the large rig barge was removed from over the well head. And they could not move as the drilling rig tanks were fully loaded with extra heavy oil base cement. For 14 days they tried diesel centrifugal pumps, 4x6 pumps, jet pumps, diaphragm pumps, vac system, and several other pumping systems with little success. The heavy mud weight, slurry content, suction lift limitations, line length, 15’ vertical head, and other contributing factors made this job really difficult. On the 15th day they had Fast Flow at the job site. The rig manager told us that in last two days they only filled two 25 BBL cutting boxes - and had serious safety problems with gas occasionally blowing out of the well bore. During this time the drill mud had settled out and evaporated, it contained very little water content. They advised me to turn on the mixers to put solids back into suspension -before trying to pump. We asked to let us try worst case to see if we could pump it. When the rig manager saw the little Fast Flow 2” pump on the barge deck - he rolled his eyes and walked away, but returned in few minutes - and told him that if we could not pump the drill mud solids, that they would not need to pay Fast Flow. Much to his surprise (and to mine too) we filled 13 of the 25 barrel cutting boxes each with 5 minutes of pumping time - using one 2" pump. He was on the radio with good news before we half filled the first cuttings box. That evening they moved in another barge and completed the pumping project. Their drilling “mud engineer” took several samples while pumping and weighed the oil base drilling solids at 19.7 pounds per gallon. The Fast Flow became the solution for a difficult problem. Upside Down 480’ Oil Barge - At Theodore, AL disaster response project this time working with Resolve Marine Group. This project was for pumping 480’ double hull barge that hit a jack up rig after hurricane Katrina. The barge had 5 million gallons of heavy crude oil on board. The barge leaked a large amount of oil, fortunately it was contained in the Gulf before it rolled over. It was upside down when they pulled the barge into Mobile Bay. The hard hat divers needed a light weight submersible pump that could pump 55 feet of vertical head moving cold heavy crude oil. Most of the compartments were intact, but upside down, it presented some dangerous confined space entry problems for the divers. They were amazed how well the Fast Flow 2” did moving 300 gpm each. They pumped heavy cold crude oil vertical 55’ then 250’ over to portable frac tanks. 2
  11. 11. The 26 pound portable pumps were easy for workers to move into confined space entry compartments without much difficulty. Calcium Slurry – We completed successful test moving heavy lime slurry from drinking water plant to sediment clarifier pond that was over 13,500 feet distance. The pipeline was 8” in diameter and the customer had two 25hp electric submersible pumps that moved 600 gpm combined flow rate. They have frequent maintenance failures with the electric submersible pumps. One Fast Flow 4” pump moved 500+ gpm slurry. The pipeline is used to move 50/50 thick limestone and water slurry mixture. Offshore Oil Platforms - Fast Flow Pumps have been used at several crude oil tanks pumping crude oil up to platform over 75' feet vertical. The FF 2A was chosen for these jobs at the time the 2" had best vertical head. Since then we have new model Mini 3" with 325 feet of vertical head pressure, which was used to replace the FF 2 inch pump on these jobs. ETT Solids Disposal Plant Theodore AL – Before hurricane Katrina hit landfall we set up a diesel powered Fast Flow Pump inside the containment walls of the ETT plant. During the hurricane waters came over the 6’ containment wall. After running over 30 hours unattended the system was shutdown. Much to their surprise the pump prevented plant flooding and saved their equipment from salt water damage. Fast Flow pumps can run dry for long periods of time without damage, so before the storm hit and afterward for hours, it ran dry. This was the only ETT disposal plant of 6 that survived the storm. They were back in operation shortly after the storm. We have nice letter from the ETT owner thanking Fast Flow. They had been using Fast Flow Pumps for several months to unload barge loads of drill cuttings pumping them to the pit area. Oil Barge Cleaning - Fast Flow pumps were used to pump several 480' oil barges that contained heavy drilling mud cuttings. All of the platforms offshore collect the oily cuttings then barge transport them as hazardous waste. The solids are then pumped into deep disposal wells -or were treated at plants that remove or neutralize the hazardous materials. The Fast Flow is portable and effective tool for this job. They had hard time finding pumps that could move the heavy solids and there was no lifting equipment on the 480' barges so portability in confined space area was important. Cleaning contractors have completed a number of these jobs using our pumps. Typically we run 100' sections of hydraulic hose to the barge compartment and lower the pumps down into the crude or oily waste. Some barges we ran as much as 500' feet of hydraulic line to the pump head. Fast Flow HPU oilfield skids can power 2 Fast Flow pumps at the same time, tank cleaning contractors can blast volume wash with one pump and pump solids with the other. Cuttings Barge – CCS had a barge that was loaded with very abrasive drilling solids that had been stored inside this barge for several years. It was one of those cleaning jobs that nobody really wanted to take. Enviro tank cleaning contractor was hired to do this difficult job and they chose Fast Flow Pumps to handle removal pumping of the abrasive solids. They wore out 3 impellers and 3
  12. 12. damaged two pump volutes – but the crew was two weeks ahead of schedule and was successful cleaning project. 4
  13. 13. Jet Fuel -Northrop Grumman Shipyards use our pumps to offload fuel tank compartments loaded with JP5 jet fuel on new Navy ships. Fast Flow pumps are proven safe for moving diesel and jet fuel - as our impeller has no contact with the alum housing and it can run dry for extended periods of time without damage. They have used Fast Flow 2" pumps for over 5 years. Drill Rig Well Cellar Pumping -Drilling companies are using our 4" pumps to move drill cuttings from Well Cellars over to shaker or reserve pit. It can remove about 500 to 800 gpm heavy solids - important to use debris cage to protect the impeller when pumping rock cuttings. Also they can use 2 pumps in one cellar if the need more flow rate for first 300 feet. That is when they have most drill cutting problems. After that they use one 4” pump to keep up with the produced cuttings flow rate. Jetting Operations – Commercial divers used the 2” and Mini 3” for trenching jetting around oil platform legs. These platforms were removed from the Gulf and required cutting the legs off with hydraulic guillotine. Also divers use small Fast Flow system in airboats doing trenching work in marsh areas. Fast Flow was chosen due to portability and performance. Tank Cleaning Operations - Fast Flow HPU skids can power 2 Fast Flow pumps at the same time, tank cleaning contractors blast volume wash with one pump and pump solids out with the other. Typically we run 100' sections of hydraulic hose to the barge compartment and easy to raise/lower the pumps into the oily waste. Hydraulic submersibles were not popular, most were too heavy, and no lifting equipment was available. The other problem is that most submersible pumps will not move the heavy drilling cutting solids. For years they use diaphragm pumps –by comparison they are slow and high maintenance. Reserve Pit Drill Cuttings contain Frac Sand and other very abrasive materials - the Fast Flow does great job moving these heavy solids as we do not have mechanical seals, wear plates, impeller has no contact with the housing - we do not have internal friction inside the pump and helps minimize erosional damage. The pumps have been used at several reserve pits pumping solids to frac tanks -and for shooting solids into vac trucks for safe transport. Vac truck pulls and Fast Flow pushes, works great filled large vac truck with heavy drill cuttings in 17 minutes. At disposal pits Fast Flow pumped 20 pound cuttings, its the most difficult pump jobs that we know. Coal Mine Reliability Study – Last year Fast Flow Pumps were tested at a coal mine and mines have large amount of de-watering. They ran the 2” pump for 30 days as part of reliability study using this new technology. They like the Fast Flow compared to other hydraulic and electric submersible pumps. Some advantages were portability, self priming, handles low inlet cavitation, and run dry ability for long time periods. The mining industry mostly uses 3 phase submersible pumps for most of the de watering. Can you imagine standing in 3 inches of water checking to see why the pumps are not working? The pumps that we saw that failed had burned heads electrical windings. And they are expensive pumps with Class Div 2 explosion proof rated motors. Many coal 5
  14. 14. mines have hydraulic systems and this is a good service application for Fast Flow. Emergency and Disaster response – For marine fire fighting pumps or bilge flood protection, or oil spill clean up jobs these high flow portable pumps can to the job. With brass nozzle 2" by 3/4" nozzle we can shoot 150 to 200 feet of throw, plenty distance and pressure for most fire fighting jobs. For Disaster Response - oil spill clean up operations, plant flooding, jetting operations, barge salvage operations. Same pump can be used for so many different service applications. 6
