Project Background

An Australian food manufacturer was looking for a reliable wastewater pump to replace a lobe pump at their manufacturing plant. The lobe pump they were using was unable to consistently handle solids, was unreliable and expensive to repair.

To solve this issue, the Sydney based Food Company contacted Hydro Innovations to enquire about a suitable wastewater pump.

The company has several Gorman-Rupp pumps at their manufacturing plant.

The Solution

A Gorman-Rupp pump model 11½ A20-B was chosen for the job.

This pump was chosen for its reliability and ease of maintenance. Also, Gorman-Rupp has an excellent reputation for quality and durability.

The company has several Gorman-Rupp pumps at their manufacturing plant in their wastewater treatment systems.

Many food manufacturers rely on Gorman-Rupp pumps to treat their wastewater. Gorman-Rupp wastewater pumps are designed to handle heavily loaded wastewater and are built to last.

Gorman-Rupp pumps are also used in many other industries including water, wastewater, paper, packaging, chemical and meat processing.

The Pumps

The Gorman-Rupp 10 Series grey water pump range of self-priming centrifugal pumps and effluent pumps have been delivering excellent service to industry since 1946. With large inspection cover to access pump internals for service or blockage removal and a very thick vaned solids handling impeller, 10 Series pumps are the choice for many an abattoir, concrete batch plant or chemical plant.

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
