Self Cleaning Sump - Eliminate Blockages With The Easy To Install Sloping Collector Pipe

Self Cleaning Sump – Eliminate Blockages With The Easy To Install Sloping Collector Pipe

Ask Our Team

The Gorman-Rupp Self Cleaning Sump (SCS) is a revolution in wastewater pump station wet well design. The SCS is an easy to install sloping collector pipe (fabricated from heavy duty HDPE) that is directly connected to the control manhole, and used in conjunction with Gorman-Rupp self priming sewage pumps.

The Self Cleaning Sump has been designed to replace the conventional cylindrical wet well and to remove the flaws associated with this current design. The negatives of the conventional design are considered to be the amount of intervention (number of personnel per call and the number of calls) required with these stations, the risks to operators associated with accessing the wet well for blockage removal and maintenance, and the longevity and reliability of equipment.

The aim of the SCS design is to:

  • Eliminate blockages caused by the build-up of rags and stringy matter
  • Eliminate sediment build-up
  • Eliminate fat and grease build-up
  • Eliminate air entrainment
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Greatly reduce blockages in pumps
  • Greatly reduce maintenance costs
  • Reduce civil costs
  • Used in conjunction with Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series and Super T Series Grey Water Pumps

It is simpler, performs better, and is suitable for projects of all types. This is the ideal solution for wastewater treatment in both urban and industrial environments.

Current pumping systems all have a main sump. Their installation involves heavy civil engineering work and not only that, they regularly silt up, requiring frequent costly maintenance.

The concept developed by Gorman-Rupp eliminates the main sump and at the same time increases pumping efficiency.
