Project Background

A NSW fruit juice manufacturer has recently selected Gorman-Rupp self-priming pumps for their wastewater service. They selected Gorman-Rupp pumps because they were the safest option for their operators, and because they considered them the most economical solution, according to Gorman-Rupp distributors, Hydro Innovations.

‘Gorman-Rupp’s “Ultra V Series” of pumps and is the most advanced self-priming wastewater pump on the market today. ‘

The Problem

The company saw the value of mounting pumps above the wastewater pit and not in it. This way, their operators need not be put at risk of:

Working over water
Working at heights
Working with heavy swinging weights
Working with cranes while monitoring and maintaining their asset.

The Solution

Gorman-Rupp pumps are installed at ground level, above the waste pit [by up to 7.6m above water level], so can be monitored, inspected and repaired easily and safely. Other technologies are not so easy to monitor and often require the use of cranes and the opening of wet well covers to expose operators to working over water and working at heights. Gorman-Rupp pumps can be serviced safely by one person, with no confined spaces entry to worry about.

For this project, requiring a flow of 28 litres per second [L/s] at a total head of 12 metres, a Gorman-Rupp V3B60-B was selected. This pump is one of Gorman-Rupp’s “Ultra V Series” of pumps and is the most advanced self-priming wastewater pump on the market today. The pumps have additional safety features to protect both operators and equipment, and have the most advanced maintenance features available.

The Results

Some applications can be abrasive or corrosive [or both], so Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series pumps have a range of materials to best cope with the application, including hardened iron [for abrasive service], 316 grade stainless steel for corrosive applications and CD4MCu [a hard duplex stainless steel] for abrasive and corrosive applications.

Wastewater pumps from Gorman-Rupp are available with flows from as little at 4 L/s through to 250 L/s.

The Pumps

The Gorman-Rupp Super T Series self priming centrifugal wastewater/sewage pump has been the world benchmark for this technology since 1963 (over 50 years!). They have been designed for economical, trouble-free operation, with superior solids handling capability and a large inspection cover to access pump internals for service or blockage removal.

The Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series is the most advanced self-priming centrifugal wastewater and sewage pump range on the market today.

They are high performance, high head, and high-efficiency pumps, designed to deliver a long and low maintenance service life, with a low cost of ownership.

Ultra V Series pumps are now also available with “Eradicator” technology to enable them to handle stringy materials such as rags, wet wipes, feathers and other debris that might otherwise block a pump.

Advantages include:

  • Ability to mount high and dry above the wet well [not in it]
  • Self-priming to 7.6 metres
  • Flows to 110 L/s and pressures upwards of 95 metres
  • Efficiencies up to 20% higher than any other solids handling self-primer
  • Higher pressures (heads) (up to 300%) than any other solids handling self-primer
  • Greatly improved operator safety
  • Easy access for monitoring or service
  • Improved maintenance features to greatly reduce maintenance time and costs, with removable rotating assembly
  • A variety of materials of construction to handle abrasive and/or corrosive fluids

The Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series solids handling sewage and wastewater pumps with Eradicator™ Solids Management System are a series of self-priming centrifugal pumps designed specifically for handling municipal and industrial wastewater containing stringy, difficult to pump, solids in suspension (such as “wet wipes”, rags and feathers).

They have been designed for economical, trouble-free operation, with design features that deliver superior solids handling capability and a large inspection cover to access pump internals for service or blockage removal. Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series wastewater and sewage pumps have been used with great success in wastewater treatment plants around the country, as well as food process plants, paper mills and other heavy industries. The “Eradicator™ system advances the solids handling capabilities of this range.

Advantages include:

  • Ability to mount high and dry above the wet well [not in it]
  • Up to 7.6 metre suction lift
  • Handles up to 76mm spherical solids as well as stringy materials
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Greatly reduced OH&S issues
  • Easy access for monitoring or service
  • Advanced safety features to protect operators
  • Improved maintenance features to greatly reduce maintenance time and costs, with removable rotating assembly
  • A variety of materials of construction to handle abrasive and/or corrosive fluids
  • Flows to 110 L/s and pressures upward of 95 metres
