A leader in Self Priming Pump technology, Gorman Rupp presents the iPC Series Air Driven Driaphragm Self Priming Pumps.
Available in Australia from Hydro Innovations , these self priming pumps do not need separate controls and have a plug and pump ability that only requires the supply of good quality compressed air. The rugged construction and extra-thick pump casing of these pumps stand up to the abuses of the most demanding sludge and slurry applications.
They also have the facility to vary the stroke rate, discharge stroke time duration and both suction and discharge pressures (independently) and they are capable of operating dry, on suction lifts up to 20 feet.
Capable of overcoming the "high wear" problem commonly found in double diaphragm and progressive cavity pumps, Air Driven Diaphragm pumps have only three moving parts so maintenance and service are minimal. Replacement of pump diaphragm can be accomplished in about one hour without disconnecting piping.
Check valves can also be quickly and easily cleaned out using "twist lok" handles. No special tools required.
