Project Background

The Western Treatment Plant is a vast sewage treatment plant on the Western side of metropolitan Melbourne, treating approximately half of all the sewage in Melbourne.

Programmed is the Maintenance and Minor Capital contractor for the plant, and they reached out to Hydro Innovations to solve an issue with some self-priming pumps feeding a sampling station. The existing pumps were operating too far left of their curve and were struggling to prime a long suction line.

‘Since installation, Programmed have been very happy with the pumps’

Why did Greater Western Water select Gorman-Rupp Pumps for this project

Hydro Innovations, after some site visits, selected the Gorman Rupp T2C60SC-B, which is the smallest pump within Gorman-Rupp’s “Super T Series” range of wastewater pumps.

The Results

Since installation, Programmed have been very happy with the pumps. They have proven to be reliable and as designed, will automatically re-prime when they are needed. With the operation of the sampling station, the suction line is flushed after each cycle. This in turn means the pumps must re-prime a dry suction line each and every time, something the Gorman Rupp Super T Series pumps can be relied upon to do. These pumps only operate every hour and piping slowly drains between run times.

The Pumps

This series of pump is available in six sizes, from 2” through to 10”, with flows to 200 litres per second. Pressures up to 95 metres can also be achieved by Gorman-Rupp’s range of wastewater pumps. Gorman-Rupp wastewater pumps have all the features to make them reliable and easy to maintain. They can handle spherical solids to 76mm, have a removable cover-plate to allow access to pump internals without needing to remove the pump from the pipe system, and operators can adjust internal clearances in five minutes without having to open the pump.

The Gorman-Rupp Super T Series self-priming dewatering pump has been the world benchmark for this technology since 1963 (>55 years). These engine driven pumps are direct coupled to diesel engines through flexible flywheel couplings to ensure perfect alignment between pump and engine. These are mounted onto our “engitank” platform. This platform includes an extra heavy duty fuel tank base with a 450 litre capacity, lifting points on 4 corners, fork lift pockets, and a central lifting frame. A sheet-metal roof is provided to help protect the engine from the elements.

Advantages include:

  • Simple priming system. Just fill casing with water.
  • No complicated “add-on” priming systems.
  • Pump solid particles up to 76mm dia
  • Pump stringy materials [rags, bags and wipes] with Eradicator technology
  • 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 externally adjustable clearances.
  • A variety of materials of construction to handle abrasive and/or corrosive fluids
  • Any engine brand required by the customer.
  • Choice of skid or trailer mounted configuration

Super T Series pumps now have several variants that either improve solids handling or efficiency.The Gorman-Rupp Super T Series self-priming centrifugal wastewater/sewage pump has been the world benchmark for this technology since 1963 (>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.

Advantages include:

  • Self-Priming pump has the ability to mount high and dry above the wet well (not in it)
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Greatly reduced OH&S issues – no more working over water/heights/cranes/heavy swinging weights
  • Surface-mounted pumps with easy access for monitoring or service
  • Advanced safety features including pressure relief valve 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

The Gorman-Rupp Super T Series pump 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 Super T Series wastewater and sewage pumps have been used for pumping of WAS and RAS and for digester recirculation 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]
  • 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
