Gorman-Rupp centrifugal pumps from Hydro Innovations fitted with the
Eradicator system helped a major shopping centre on the Gold Coast resolve
serious solids management issues.
The submersible sewage pumps installed in the carpark of the shopping
centre were being overwhelmed by solids waste consisting of sanitary napkins,
clothing bits and paper towels that made their way into the sewer wet well,
leading to pump failure.
When contacted by the contractor to resolve the problem, Hydro
Innovations recommended Gorman-Rupp’s new Eradicator system fitted into their
Super T Series self priming centrifugal pumps.
Gorman-Rupp’s surface mounted T3C60SC-B pumps were selected for the
application. Capable of handling a 63mm spherical solid, the pumps are fitted
with a new style of cover plate as well as wear plate, which are all part of
the Eradicator solids management system. This system is designed to handle high
loads of stringy materials that get into wastewater systems.
Gorman-Rupp’s Super T Series pumps are capable of operating on suction
lifts up to 7.6 metres. The surface mount design allows operators to gain quick
access to the pumps for all maintenance tasks without opening wet well lids and
exposing operators to falls or confined spaces.
Since the installation, the contractor has been pleased with the performance
of the Gorman-Rupp centrifugal pumps, especially with their ability to cope
with the heavy loads of foreign materials.
