Project Showcase: Hazeldene’s Chicken Farm

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

In line with their focus on quality, Hazeldene’s were looking for a quality solution for their wastewater pump needs. They needed a pump that was capable of handling all the solids that form part of the wastewater stream in a chicken process plant [like feathers, internals, feet etc], and that was also an extremely reliable self-primer.

Hydro Innovations recommended a V3B60-B, which is part of Gorman-Rupp’s range of Ultra V Series self-priming pumps. Adam Hazeldene, Technical Services Manager, was well aware of Gorman-Rupp’s quality reputation and was keen to see one installed in his wastewater system to solve the problems they were experiencing.

The V3B60 can be easily and safely maintained by one operator without the need for lifting apparatus. No cranes, No harnesses, No work over wet wells, No confined space, No additional staff. One person and two spanners are all that is required.

Ultra V Features

Ultra V has less chokes and blockages, and is easy to maintain:


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.


Removable Cover Plate

All Super T series pumps have a large removable cover plate for accessing pump internals for the quick removal of blockages. Check valves, impellers and wear plates can also be replaced through this cover.

Replaceable Wear Plate

Replaceable Wear Plate

A replaceable wear plate has Gorman-Rupp’s patent-pending, self-cleaning design to ensure that debris is cleared away and does not collect on the impeller vanes. This innovative design reduces life cycle costs by minimising blockages.

Anti-Rotation Ribs

Anti-Rotation Ribs

All Ultra V Series wastewater pumps come standard with anti-rotation ribs within the seal chamber area, reducing internal wear and maximising seal life

Patented External Shim-less Adjustment System

Patented External Shim-less Adjustment System

The shim-less cover plate adjustment allows for accurate maintenance of the clearance between the impeller and wear plate, without realigning belts, couplings or other drive components. Once adjustments have been made, the unique collar and adjusting screw maintains the clearance setting even if the cover plate is removed. Peak efficiency is maintained, while doubling the life of the impeller and wear plate. The life of the wear plate is maximised with the combination of the shim-less cover adjustment and the additional rotating assembly spacers.


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.


Removable Rotating Assembly

Gorman-Rupp Super T series wastewater pumps are designed with a removable rotating element. This assembly can be removed and replaced in minutes without disconnecting piping or disturbing motor alignment.

The EDUR PBU multiphase pump is a single-stage peripheral centrifugal pump with the unique capability of being able to pump a liquid/gas mixture. The centrifugal pump is constructed of stainless steel, so may be used to handle a variety of liquids. Air, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide and Ozone gases can be introduced into the suction line and transported and used to mix or disperse the gases. This makes the pump ideal for DAF plants, where the multiphase pumps provide the task of air saturation without the use of compressed air (no compressor, air saturation tank or associated controls).

Advantages include:

  • Flows to 4.0 l/s, suiting DAF inflows to 40 litres per second
  • Pressures to 9 Bar
  • Operating pressure max. 16 bar
  • Temperature -40 °C to 140 °C
