Gorman-Rupp ES Auto-Start pump stations
ES Auto-Start

The Gorman-Rupp ES Auto-Start pump stations are the same as any other self priming sewage pump station, except they have an auxiliary combustion engine to drive one or more of the pumps in times of power outage. They are pre-engineered and factory tested packaged units with one, two or more pumps. The motors, auxiliary engine/s, all the valves, interconnecting piping etc are all supplied as a package, inclusive of state-of-the-art purpose built controls and liquid level control systems.

The pumps in the station can either be Gorman-Rupp’s Super T or Ultra V Series sewage pumps.  Flows to 250 l/s for a single pump can be achieved, and this can be expanded when using self priming pumps, because only the suction line needs to be in the wet well [not whole pumps], so that 3 or more pumps can be utilised to deliver peak efficiencies when pumping ADWF [average dry weather flow] right through to peak wet weather flows. A variety of enclosures  are available to house the pumping equipment. Advantages include:
