The V3B60-B is the smallest pump in the Gorman-Rupp range of Ultra V Series wastewater pumps. They are also suitable as an industrial wastewater pump, because the pumps can be configured with various materials of construction, including hardened iron internals for abrasive applications, 316ss for corrosive applications and CD4MCu [duplex stainless steel] for corrosive and abrasive applications.
The V3B 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. Even if a solid is too big to handle and enters the pump, 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 V3B has a 100mm suction port and an 80mm discharge port and is capable of flows to 45 l/s and heads to 32m. 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.
