Hydro Innovations introduces the new Gorman-Rupp T2A61-B, a range of
self priming centrifugal trash pumps featuring 50mm suction and discharge ports
and capable of flows to 12 l/s and heads to 32m.
The smallest in Gorman-Rupp’s T Series range of wastewater pumps, the T2A61-B
has a cast iron construction and is equipped with a 316 stainless steel
impeller, seal plate and wear plate and a 17-4 PH stainless steel shaft for
applications involving corrosive wastewater.
The pump can operate on suction lifts to 7.6m, and is capable of
re-priming from 7.3m with a completely dry suction line and only a half casing
full of water, making it ideal for continuous, unattended automatic operation in
industrial or municipal wastewater applications.
The Gorman-Rupp T2A61-B range is also suitable for use as raw sewage
pumps because of its solids handling capacity, excellent NPSHr characteristics
and re-priming capability. The pumps are also available in various other
materials of construction, including hardened iron (approx. 400 Brinell)
internals for abrasive applications, and CD4MCu (duplex stainless steel) for
applications involving corrosive and abrasive wastewater.
Key features of the Gorman-Rupp T2A61-B self priming wastewater pumps
include excellent solids handling capacity with ability to handle spherical
solids up to 38mm in diameter; self-cleaning wear plate system allowing pump to
handle stringy materials such as rags, gloves and plastic bags; ‘high and dry’ mounting
above the wet well giving operators easy access to the pumps; and a large
removable cover plate simplifying maintenance and removal of blockages.
