Available now from Hydro Innovations , the Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series of self priming pumps combines solids handling with high head performance and high efficiency to provide customers with the very latest in self priming pump technology.
Available as a single stage (V Series) or a unique two stage version (VS Series) for high head applications, Ultra V self priming pumps have a range of special features that make them an efficient, reliable and versatile pumping solution.
These self priming pumps feature heavy duty balanced, two vane, semi-open ductile iron solids handling impellers to provide maximum life. The pump out vanes on the back shroud reduce foreign material build up behind the impeller to minimise pressure on the seal and maximise bearing life.
Also featured on the Ultra V self priming pump is Gorman-Rupp's double floating, self aligning, oil-lubricated mechanical cartridge seal, specifically designed for abrasive material and trash handling applications. The silicon carbide faces and extra large seal oil chamber provide optimal dry-run capability, while the patented cartridge seal design allows for accurate and easy installation.
The pump's replaceable wear plate features a patent pending self-cleaning design that reduces life cycle costs by ensuring debris is cleared away and does not collect on the impeller vanes.
All Ultra V Series self priming pumps come standard with anti-rotation ribs within the seal chamber area that reduce internal wear and maximise seal life.
Finally, Ultra V Series self priming pumps feature a patented external shim-less cover plate adjustment system that allows for accurate maintenance of the clearance between the impeller and wear plate, without realigning belts, couplings or other drive components.
