The Gorman-Rupp VS3B60-B is a unique two-stage self priming
wastewater pump, and offers up to twice the pressure of most other solids
handling self priming pumps. The compact staging is accomplished by the
addition of the patented Ultra Mate¨ 2nd stage to the V3B60-B single
stage pump via an innovative transition chamber that reduces the friction
losses normally associated with staged pumping.
The VS3B60-B is also a good choice for high head industrial
wastewater applications because it is a self priming pump and can be mounted
“high and dry” above the wastewater, making it safer for operators to access
for monitoring and servicing. Blockages are also easily handled because the
pumps are mounted at surface level and easily accessed. A large removable
inspection cover-plate gives quick access to pump internals. This feature makes
them ideal for a sewage pump station. No cranes or confined spaces issues for
blockage removal or routine maintenance. If the water is corrosive and/or
abrasive, wearing parts can be supplied in Hardened Iron, 316 grade stainless
steel or duplex stainless steel [CD4MCu].
The VS3B can re-prime a suction lift of 7.6m with a
completely dry suction line and only a half casing full of water, making it
ideal for continuous, automatic, unattended operation. The VS3B has a 100mm
suction port and an 80mm discharge port and is capable of flows to 40 l/s and
heads to 65m.
