Gorman-Rupp V4A60-B’s operate in the toughest applications

The V4A60-B is another in the Gorman-Rupp range of Ultra V Series wastewater pumps. They are suitable for industrial wastewater pumping or for municipal sewage pumping applications. Ultra V Series pumps boast some of the lowest lifecycle costs in the industry. Because of the quality USA manufacturing and testing that goes into every Gorman-Rupp pump, asset owners benefit from minimal service interruptions and some of the lowest maintenance in the industry. Gorman-Rupp delivers the best ROI by ensuring low operating costs for decades.

The V4A is an excellent solids handling pump, being able to handle spherical solids up to 76mm in diameter, and because of its self cleaning wear plate system, is able to handle stringy materials such as rags, gloves and plastic bags. If a solid too big to handle does enter the pump, operators can access pumps quickly [because they are mounted at surface level], and one person can remove a blockage easily through the pump’s large removable inspection cover-plate. This feature makes them ideal for a sewage pump station.

The V4A has a 150mm suction port and a 100mm discharge port and is capable of flows to 65 l/s and heads to 47m. The pump can operate on suction lifts to 7.6m, and is capable of re-priming from this height with a completely dry suction line and only a half casing full of water, making it ideal for continuous, unattended automatic operation.
