The V3A60-B is the smallest pump in the Gorman-Rupp range of Ultra V Series wastewater pumps, with exactly the same external dimensions as Gorman-Rupp’s V3B60-B. The only difference between them is that the V3A sacrifices a small amount of solids handling [63.5mm spherical solids in lieu of the V3B’s 76mm], for a solid increase in pressure capability [able to produce 47m in lieu of 32m]. These pumps are also suitable for pumping raw sewage because they are fitted with a self cleaning wear plate system that minimises blockages caused by stringy materials such as rags.
The V3A60-B is a good choice as an industrial wastewater pump because they are self priming pumps and can be mounted “high and dry” above the wastewater, making them safer for operators to access for monitoring and maintaining. If the water is corrosive and/or abrasive, wearing [parts can be supplied in Hardened Iron, 316ss or duplex stainless steel [CD4MCu]. Even if a solid is too big for the pump to handle, because they are mounted at surface level, and have a large removable inspection cover-plate, solids are easily removed. This feature makes them ideal for a sewage pump station.
The V3A can re-prime a suction lift of 7.6m with a completely dry suction line and only a half casing full of water, making it ideal for continuous, unattended operation. The V3A has a 100mm suction port and an 80mm discharge port and is capable of flows to 40 l/s and heads to 47m.
