About Hydro Innovations
The Hydro Innovations mission is to provide our customers with the very best and most innovative pumps in Australia, using the highest quality products, and supported by the best service in the industry.
We are leaders in Self Priming Centrifugal Wastewater Pump Technology. Hydro Innovations is the exclusive distributor of Gorman-Rupp pumps for all the municipal and industrial markets in Australia. Gorman-Rupp are the world leaders in self priming centrifugal wastewater pump technology, however they also manufacture the best fuel pumps, gear pumps, prime assisted pumps, and packaged pump stations.
Holding a very large inventory of pumps and spare parts allows us to deliver industry leading service. With over 50 years combined experience in applying, selecting and troubleshooting Gorman-Rupp self priming pumps, we are also in a good position to help design the best and most cost effective fluid transfer systems for our customers.
We package Gorman-Rupp pumps up with locally sourced electric motors or diesel engines, have an in-house design team working with the latest design software, and we laser align all pump sets as part of our QA procedures – ensuring our customers receive the very best pumps in Australia, for each application.
In keeping with our philosophy of only using the highest quality products, and delivering the best solutions, we also represent Venturi Aeration and RamParts Pumps (USA), Edur Pumpenfabrik (Germany), Ragazzini (Italy) and JS Proputec (Denmark).
Hydro Innovations is keen to introduce the Venturi-Aeration aerators to Australia after the success food processors have had with the products in the US and Europe. Venturi-Aeration aerators are used in conjunction with Gorman-Rupp pumps and can be mounted on the banks of basins and lagoons instead of needing to be installed in them.
RamParts supplies us with the most ruggedly constructed air driven diaphragm pumps on the market today so that our customers have a great option when their existing sludge or slurry pumps “can’t take the heat” or they have an application for pumping abrasive and/or corrosive sludge or slurry.
Edur supplies us with a great line of horizontal multi-stage pumps along with solids handling centrifugal pumps and a multiphase DAF pump that can replace the usual pump-compressor-air saturation tank combination that is common on conventional DAF systems.
JS Proputec supplies us with the Lamella Pump used for transporting solid materials such as pre-broken bone and offal at abattoirs and other meal processing plants. The pump is used instead of more conventional methods such as screw conveyors, compressed air “blow-tank” systems and manual systems (bins and fork lifts)
The Ragazzini Rotho range of positive displacement peristaltic pumps are also available at Hydro Innovations. The range features a ‘roller on bearings’ design so that the pump housing does not need to be filled with lubrication fluid, making them safe and easy to maintain.
Solving Pumping Problems
“Hydro Innovations helped us solve some safety issues connected with the operation of the submersible wastewater pumps we had. We now have Gorman-Rupp self priming wastewater pumps in that application and our safety issues have been substantially reduced. We have no hesitation in endorsing Hydro Innovations.”
Chris Schumacher, Director of Works & Engineering Oberon Council
“It’s great to see that there are still suppliers out there who will stand behind their products and let you trial them before buying. If Hydro Innovations hadn’t let me trial the pump I doubt I would have bought it upfront because I have been burnt so many times before. After all my negative experiences, the Gorman-Rupp T2A3-B self priming wastewater pump is far more than I hoped for.”
Mat Collier, Principal Partner and Manager of Midwest Piggery
“Another big plus with the Gorman-Rupp pump is that if you do get a malfunction occurring in the motor you can just replace the motor. This isn’t possible with a submersible pump. If there is a motor problem you have to change the entire pump. As an engineer I grew up on submersible pumps but having now been exposed to an above ground centrifugal pump I’d say they have a lot to offer and should be seriously considered as a pump option in a wastewater treatment plant.”
Adrian Harper, Senior Engineer Wastewater Treatment Group, Moe Wastewater Treatment Plant, Gippsland Water
“Bundaberg Regional Council are using Gorman-Rupp ultra VS3A60-B wastewater pumps in our vacuum sewer stations. Gorman-Rupp pumps have always provided reliable, dependable service at a competitive price. They are a very professional company to deal with, they know their stuff and are willing to back their product. Based on our experience we have no hesitation selecting or recommending Gorman-Rupp pumps.”
Kevin Harris, Bundaberg Regional Council Technician
“Inghams Enterprises Pty Ltd have used Gorman-Rupp pumps for over 20 years. Gorman-Rupp submersible pumps have provided reliable, dependable wastewater pumping service for our waste treatment processing plants in this time. Based on this experience we had no hesitation selecting Gorman-Rupp pumps for a new trade waste treatment plant at one of our NSW plants.”
David Jessup – Group Executive General Manager, Inghams Enterprises Pty Ltd.
“Choosing to partner with Hydro Innovations was the right decision. They grasped what was required immediately, have a very good understanding of their products and their backup service has been excellent.”
