The best self-priming pump for corrosive wastewater
The Gorman-Rupp T3A65S-B a self-priming, solids handling trash pump is a tough and reliable pump made from CD4MCu Duplex Stainless Steel, which is harder and more corrosion resistant than 316-grade stainless steel, making it the ideal material for pumping corrosive solids laden wastewater.
The Gorman-Rupp T Series pump is ideal for harsh environments such as industrial wastewater, where abrasive particles are commonplace. The T3A65S-B can also be used as a grit pump at sewage treatment plants, and has also been used in food process with acidic juices.
The pumps NPSHr (Net positive suction head) characteristics and re-priming capability make it the ideal choice for continuous unattended automatic operation, making it excellent for operations that are unmanned for periods of time.
The T3A65S-B can also be used as a solids handling pump. This pump can handle spherical solids up to 63mm in diameter, and because of its self-cleaning wear plate system, it is able to handle stringy materials such as rags, gloves and plastic bags.
These surface mounted pumps are mounted “high and dry” on land, not submersed down a wet well, making them very easy for operators to access to troubleshoot or carry out preventative maintenance. The maintenance cost efficiencies are increased when the pumps are mounted on banks or beside reservoirs, because there is no longer a need to provide lifting apparatus, construct special suction wells, or have the pumps submerged in water.
Self-priming pumps provide a safer and simpler alternative for operators making maintenance costs lower over the life of the pump installation.
The T3A65S-B has 80mm suction and discharge ports and is capable of flows to 25 l/s and heads to 32m, but others in the series can produce flows to 200 litres per second.
