Project Background

Hydro Innovations is proud to have been selected to provide Gorman Rupp pumps and other specialised pump equipment to the new 30,255 square-metre Snack Brands’ manufacturing and logistics facility being built at Erskine Park, Western Sydney.

Snack Brands will use this facility for its manufacturing and distribution needs, consolidating several existing Sydney facilities into this new high-tech hub.

Snack Brands Australia, known for chip brands such as Kettle, Thins, Samboy, and Cheezels, produces over 200 million packets of these snacks annually.

Hydro Innovations has been supplying water and waste water pump equipment, service and technical support to Snackbrands Blacktown & Smithfield facilities for many years

About The Pumps

Mark Harrison (Snack Brands’ Project Manager) insisted on again employing Hydro Innovations & Gorman Rupp pumps for the new facility because of the pump’s reliability, safety features, longevity, ease of servicing and maintaining the product.

The Results

On this project, Gorman Rupp T4A71S-B (HDI- Hard Iron Fitted) pumps were chosen to handle the often-challenging waste water being pumped.

Gorman-Rupp Super T Series pumps do not have to be removed from the pipe system or need cranes or hoists to receive maintenance. They are easy and safe to access, making them popular with both operators and asset owners.

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. Super T Series pumps now have several variants that either improve solids handling or efficiency.

Advantages include:

  • Self-Priming pump has the ability to mount high and dry above the wet well (not in it)
  • Up to 7.6 metre suction lift
  • Handle spherical solids to 76mm in diameter
  • 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
  • “Eradicator” technology for handling rags, wet wipes, rope etc
  • “Eradicator Plus” technology for extreme-duty stringy materials applications

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]
  • Self-priming to 7.6 metres
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Greatly reduced OH&S issues
  • No cranes or hoists for access
  • Easy access for monitoring or service
  • Advanced safety features to protect operators [such as the lightweight inspection cover-plate]
  • 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 fluid.
  • Sizes 2” to 10”, with flows to 200 L/s and heads to 40 metres.

Gorman-Rupp T Series and Super T Series self-priming centrifugal pumps have been successfully pumping municipal and industrial wastewater for over 5 decades. Over the past few years, with the introduction of wet-wipes and higher safety standards, the need for “choke-free” pumping has led to the development of pumps able to handle wipes, rags, rope, undigested hay and other stringy materials better.
Introducing the Eradicator Plus, for those extreme-duty applications where debris like trash bags, wipes, mop heads, rags, hair, industrial by-products, and agricultural wastes are present. Specifically engineered for cutting and tearing organic solids that enter the pump, the Eradicator Plus is Gorman-Rupp’s most aggressive solids-handling pump.
The Eradicator Plus is equipped with a continuous vane impeller in hardened iron, and an extra-thick G-R Hard Iron wearplate which is equipped with an oversized lacerating tooth that is designed to cut and shred organic solids before they enter the interior of the pump.

Advantages include:

  • Ability to mount high and dry above the wet well [not in it]
  • Self-priming to 7.6 metres
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Greatly reduced OH&S issues
  • Cut and shed solids that would block other pumps
  • Easy access for monitoring or service
  • Lightweight cover-plate for safe and easy access to pump internals
  • 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
