Ultra V Series with Eradicator – high pressure superior solids handling capability

Gorman-Rupp Ultra V with eradicator - high presure solids handling pump

Ultra V Series with Eradicator – high pressure superior solids handling capability

The Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series solids handling sewage and wastewater pumps with Eradicator™ Solids Management System are a series of self-priming centrifugal pumps designed specifically for handling municipal and industrial wastewater containing stringy, difficult to pump, solids in suspension (such as “wet wipes” , rags and feathers).

They have been designed for economical, trouble-free operation, with design features that deliver superior solids handling capability and a large inspection cover to access pump internals for service or blockage removal. Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series wastewater and sewage pumps have been used for pumping of WAS and RAS and for digester recirculation with great success in wastewater treatment plants around the country, as well as food process plants, paper mills and other heavy industries. The Eradicator™ system advances the solids handling capabilities of this range.

Advantages include:

  • Ability to mount high and dry above the wet well [not in it]
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Greatly reduced OH&S issues
  • Easy access for monitoring or service
  • Advanced safety features 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


Watch how Gorman-Rupp Ultra V series pumps can handle the toughest applications.

Lismore city council solve sludge choking problems with Gorman-Rupp pumps
Application: STP
Industry: Municipal
Region: NSW

Project Showcase: Lismore City Council

Municipality works with Hydro Innovations to solve its wastewater challenge.

Gorman-Rupp Eradicator kit with superior solids handling

The Lismore City Council sewage pump would choke on a daily basis during its job of turning over the digester. They were using a Gorman-Rupp T3A3S-B self-priming pump, but the sheer number of rags made it very difficult for even this excellent solids-handling sewage pump to pass all the rags, all the time.

The new Eradicator system was retrofitted to the existing Gorman-Rupp T3. The sludge pump then ran for 3 months without a single choke. In the same period, they would have expected to have between 12 and 24 chokes. Matt, Brad and their colleagues at the council were very pleased with the result.

Special Features and Pump Benefits

Ultra V with Eradicator 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.
