Project Background

Central Agri Group is one of Australia’s leading fully integrated beef farming, backgrounding, feed lotting and meat processing companies. Established in 1991, it has loyal domestic customers, supplies to over 50 exports markets and has invested heavily in state-of-the-art meat processing facilities.

The Problem

Their Trafalgar plant did however have some issues with their wastewater pump. They were running copies of the Gorman-Rupp self-priming pump on their Green Waste and they were attending the pump daily to fix issues with regard to blockages in the pump. On occasions these issues would cause the well to overflow and require the need for outside contractors to be called in to help deal with the inflow into the well.

Another processor who is running genuine Gorman-Rupp pumps recommended they contact Hydro Innovations.


Hydro Innovations recommended the existing pump be replaced with a Gorman Rupp T3A71S-B “Super T Series” trash pump fitted with an “Eradicator” solids management system, with hardened internal parts to deal with the grit and stringy materials that flow to the well. The well has a high loading of grass and so the pump was setup to deal with the grass.

Benefits of the Installation

It’s now almost 2 months since the installation and the Plant Maintenance Supervisor, Josh, could not be happier. Josh said ‘The Gorman Rupp pump is a great pump, far better than what we had before!’ He has not had to attend the pump at all compared to the once or twice per day the previous pump required.

The savings are quickly adding up and Josh has all that time back to work on other projects within the plant that he could not get to before.

Gorman-Rupp self-priming trash pumps are available in sizes from 2” through to 10”, with flows to 200 litres per second, and pressures to 90 metres. They have been extremely popular in the very difficult wastewater pumping applications in animal process plants across Australia.
