Super T Series – High and dry pumps for tough applications

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

Tim Webster’s update on Gorman-Rupp Wastewater pumps

Gorman-Rupp wastewater pumps are now even more capable of pumping solids laden wastewater including stringy solids, rags and wet wipes using the Eradicator unit, which can be retrofitted to existing pumps or added to new pump configurations. Watch how the Eradicator works in this demonstration video

  • easily pump solids laden wastewater
  • Safe for operators
  • easy removable inspection plate

Project Showcase: VISY

Food manufacturer looks to Hydro Innovations to solve its wastewater challenge.

Super-T-Series-best self-priming centrifugal pumpFeedback from the plant was “The Submersibles couldn’t pump against back pressure and wouldn’t allow us to change the design, but the Gorman Rupp units have allowed us to achieve that, and we now have no issues with our system”. – Mr. Paul Carter, Engineering Manager

Visy Packaging has a state-of the-art drink can manufacturing plant in Stapylton, Queensland. They employ over 50 people and produce export quality cans for local and overseas markets. They were however having chronic reliability issues with their submersible wastewater pumps. They had been trying to solve their issues for seven years when Mr Paul Carter [Engineering Manager – Beverage and Food Can] spoke to one of his contractors. This contractor suggested he look at Gorman-Rupp self-priming wastewater pumps, which had been successfully installed at the Pacific Fair shopping centre.

Special Features and Pump Benefits

One Operator, 2 Spanners, 10 minutes – Super T is Super Easy to maintain:

solids-handling-pump-impeller-gorman-rupp

Solids-Handling Impeller

The heavy-duty balanced, two-vane, semi-open ductile iron impellers provide maximum life. Pump-out vanes on the back shroud reduce foreign material build-up behind the impeller, minimising pressure on the seal and maximising bearing life.

Patented Cartridge Seal

Gorman-Rupp’s double floating, self aligning, oil-lubricated mechanical seal is specifically designed for abrasive and/or trash handling applications. The silicon carbide faces and extra large seal oil chamber provide superior dry-run capability. The patented cartridge design also allows for accurate and easy installation.
