O Series

The Gorman-Rupp O Series range of self priming centrifugal pumps and fuel pumps are heavy duty, quick priming pumps designed for non-stop workloads. With multi-vane impellers and a “straight-in” suction design, the O Series delivers high efficiencies and quick positive self priming when handling water, petroleum products, solvents and similar liquids. Advantages include:

  • Ability to mount high and dry above the wet well [not in it]
  • Capital cost savings over wet well/ dry well constructions
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Easy access for monitoring or service
  • Vapour handling ability reduces chances of vapour-lock when handling fuel

O Series Fuel Pump – Performance

  • Flows: 5 l/s – 80 l/s
  • Heads: 5m – 130m
  • Solids: None
  • Size: 2″, 3″, 4″, 6″+ 8″
  • Priming: Self-priming. Not re primer
  • Application: Clean Water + Fuel

Self Priming

Gorman-Rupp 0 Series pumps are self priming, requiring no add-on priming systems. After being filled with liquid, the 0 Series pumps are guaranteed to prime on suction lifts up to 7.6metres above the liquid level.

0 Series pumps are ideal for continuous, automatic operation in industrial clean water or fuel type liquids pumping duties.

High and Dry

Gorman-Rupp self priming centrifugal pumps can be mounted “high and dry” above the sump liquid level. No need for (submersible) pumps to be in the liquid being pumped (wearing and corroding from the inside and the outside). This means there are no guide rails to maintain, no [leaking?] discharge bend to maintain/replace, and no need to open wet well lids and expose operators to falls.

Self priming pumps also virtually eliminate confined spaces issues and eliminate the need for lifting devices such as cranes or hoists, because pumps are at the surface [ground level], so are easy to access for monitoring and maintenance.

Easy Access

Because Gorman-Rupp self priming pumps are located at ground level, high and dry above the liquid level, they are easy to access for monitoring, service and repair.

Whereas submersible pumps can only be accessed by opening wet well lids (exposing operators to “working at heights” and “working over water”) and winching or craning pumps to the surface (exposing operators to “working with swinging weights”), operators can access Gorman-Rupp self primers at ground level.

End suction pumps will often need a “dry well” which is accessed by going down stairs or a ladder. They need isolation valves on the suction. This makes them more difficult to access than Gorman-Rupp self primers.
