A Queensland-based beef processing plant recently purchased a
Gorman-Rupp sewage pump to pump their wastewater. The company chose a T3A3S-B unit
to deliver the required 20 litres per second pumping performance.
Gorman-Rupp pumps have been standardised by the beef processing plant for
their wastewater applications due to the product’s reliability and service
features. Gorman-Rupp has been designing and manufacturing first class self
priming pumps in their Mansfield, Ohio, USA plant since the middle of the last
century, and their latest models continue to have the same rugged reliability
that was built into those early models.
Key safety and maintenance features in the current range of Gorman-Rupp
wastewater pumps include large removable cover-plates allowing operators to
access pump internals for inspection or maintenance; fast shim-less clearance
adjustment allowing pumps to be kept at peak operating efficiency, while minimising
blockages; and a dual lip seal and atmospheric vent protecting shaft and
bearings in the event of a seal failure.
The plant will continue to use Gorman-Rupp pumps in these tough
Gorman-Rupp wastewater pumps are available in Australia through Hydro Innovations.
