A major pet food manufacturer chose Gorman-Rupp self priming pumps for
their wastewater pumping application. The pump met the primary requirements of
the manufacturer including low lifecycle cost, easy access and operator safety.
Gorman-Rupp T3A60S-B, the smallest in the Gorman-Rupp “Super T” family
was selected on the basis of its flow – the pump delivers a maximum flow of up
to 25 litres per second and a maximum head of 33 metres, and operates on a
suction lift up to 7.6 metres. Despite being the smallest in this range, the
pump is still capable of passing a 63mm spherical solid.
Key features of the Gorman-Rupp T3A60S-B self priming pumps include a
self-cleaning wear plate system allowing easy handling of stringy materials
such as rags, gloves and wet wipes; large removable cover plate giving
operators access to pump internals without disconnecting the pump from the
piping system; and reduced maintenance cost with easy access enabled and no
need for cranes or any other lifting device.
The pet food company wanted the pump to be located outside the wastewater
pit so that operators had easy and safe access to the pump.
Genuine Gorman-Rupp self priming pumps deliver reliable and effective
wastewater pumping to water authorities, councils and businesses around Australia
looking for safe and cost-effective pumping.
Gorman-Rupp self priming pumps are available in
Australia from Hydro Innovations.
