A New South Wales Council recently acquired a Gorman-Rupp T3C60SC-B pump
for unloading wastewater tankers. These tankers collect wastewater from septic
tanks, which can contain stringy materials such as rags and wet wipes.
Seeking a pump that could deal with the demands of this specific
application, the Council chose Gorman-Rupp’s ‘eradicator solids management
system’ as it met their needs.
An enhanced and upgraded version of Gorman-Rupp’s dependable Super T
Series sewage and industrial wastewater pumps range, the new Gorman-Rupp
T3C60SC-B is equipped with the eradicator’s patented features to deal with
these tricky materials in wastewater.
Key design features include an aggressive self-cleaning wear plate incorporating integral
laser-cut notches and grooves combined with a revolutionary lacerating ‘tooth’ to
constantly and effectively clear the eye of the impeller; lightweight
inspection cover for faster and easier access to the impeller without affecting
internal clearances; and an obstruction-free flow path.
Gorman-Rupp’s Super T Series range extends from the T3 (80mm suction and
discharge) to the T10 (250mm suction and discharge), which can all be upgraded
with the ‘eradicator’ system. The ‘eradicator’ system is available as an
upgrade kit for all Super T Series pumps in the field. Wastewater flows from
5L/s through to 200L/s can be handled by these pumps.
The pump is expected to deliver years of wastewater pumping capability
for the Council.
