Gorman-Rupp’s Ultra V Saves 40% On Total Pump Station Costs 

Wastewater pump stations

Wastewater pump stations play a key role in wastewater management. By pumping waste to a higher elevation, pump stations reduce the distance that wastewater has to travel, so that gravity can transport it to the wastewater treatment facility.

When selecting a pump station, initial cost is not the only thing to take into account. The cost of the entire life cycle must be considered, which looks at various factors including: Initial cost (purchase price), Installation costs (ground and civil work), Energy Costs (running costs of pump station over lifespan), Operation/Maintenance and repair.

This is why it is imperative to select the right pump to do the job as well as keeping the total life cycle cost at minimum. Proper maintenance will ensure that emergency callouts are kept to a minimum (saving on labour costs).

Gorman-Rupp’s Ultra V Series

Gorman-Rupp has had a major impact on the industrial pumping industry since it was founded in 1933. Today, Gorman-Rupp’s self-priming pumps are perfect for handling waste from many industrial and municipal applications including, domestic sewage pump stations, steel and paper mills, mining operations, food processing plants, power plants, automotive factories, tanneries, wineries and more.

The Gorman-Rupp Ultra V series pump is a perfect example of a cost-effective way to pump wastewater in these applications.

The pump can reduce total lifecycle costs of sewerage pumping stations by up to 40%. It is one of the benefits of owning a Gorman-Rupp pump. A lower total cost of ownership (TCO) is achieved by easy, simple maintenance and high machine reliability. Spare parts are also convenient and inexpensive to replace.

Besides lower costs, the Ultra V series keeps maintenance personnel out of the sump, providing them with a safer working environment and better sanitation. This pump is installed above ground level, so no need for entering a sump.

These pumps are designed specifically to provide a long, low-maintenance service life and to deliver high performance, a high head, and high efficiency.

there are many WHS issues when servicing a submersible pump

Some features include;

– Up to three times greater pressure than standard pumps
– up to 60% higher flow rate
– Self-cleaning features
– removable external suction check valve
– handles solids efficiently
– Much more

Built upon the foundation of the Super T Series, Ultra V Series pumps push against fluid-retaining solids and debris that can clog or damage traditional trash pumps.
