80 Series

The Gorman-Rupp 80 Series range of self priming centrifugal grey water pumps and effluent pumps are heavy duty 24/7, quick priming “work horses” for industry. With multi-vane impellers and a “straight-in” suction design, the 80 Series grey water pump deliver high efficiencies and quick positive self priming . Advantages include:

80 Series Grey Water Pump – Special Features

Multiple seal Options

80 Series pumps are available with Gorman-Rupp grease seal, mechanical shaft seal and packing gland seal, depending on pump application.

submersible pumps
High Efficiency Impeller

Multi-vane open impeller is designed for high efficiency. Impeller will handle up to 2-3/8″ (60 mm) solids, depending on grey water pump model.

Self Priming

Gorman-Rupp 80 Series pumps are self priming, requiring no add-on priming systems. After being filled with liquid, the 80 Series pumps are guaranteed to prime on suction lifts up to 7.6metres above the liquid level.

80 Series pumps are ideal for continuous, automatic operation in industrial effluent or clean water 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.

Reduced WH&S

Using Gorman-Rupp self priming pumps can reduce WHS issues associated with pumping applications. Because pumps are located at “ground level”, high and dry above the wet well [not in it], pumps are easily accessed by operators for monitoring, maintenance or repair. Some of the identified risks that can be reduced or eliminated include:

        • Working over water
        • Working at heights
        • Working with cranes
        • Working with heavy swinging weights

Other OH&S issues can also be eliminated with the use of self primers. Unlike submersible pumps, self priming pumps do not need guide rails and discharge base elbows that will need service and replacement over the life of the installation, requiring confined spaces entry and the associated dangers. Submersible pumps also need chains to raise them to the surface. These chains can become corroded and weakened over time, creating a potential danger to operators lifting them.

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.
