Gorman-Rupp self priming pumps from Hydro Innovations are now available
with specially engineered pump bases.
Designed by Gorman-Rupp and Hydro Innovations, the pump bases called PMB
bases have been designed using finite analysis software to provide the required
strength and stability, while reducing assembly costs and allowing flexibility
Specifically engineered for Gorman-Rupp self priming pumps, the pump
base series comes in three sizes to accommodate 1_Ó pumps right through to 10″
pumps with 75kW motors. Each base size can accommodate 2-3 pump models in the
range. The largest size, for instance, can accommodate Gorman-Rupp’s T6, T8,
T10, U6 and V6 pumps.
The pump bases are made from hot dipped galvanised material as standard
but can be supplied in 316 grade stainless steel. Pumps can be supplied as
direct drive, vee-belt ‘side-by-side’, or vee-belt over-mount, giving asset
owners a great deal of flexibility in layout footprint.
Gorman-Rupp pumps are individually tailored and
packaged onto PMB bases, and supplied complete with the valves and gauge
systems required by the customer.
