Gorman-Rupp T-Series pumps helping fight fires in Australia

The ACT Emergency Services is using the reliable Gorman-Rupp T-Series
pump to speed up the filling process for their firefighting aircraft at their
Canberra Airport facility.

href=”#CompanyLink:ID131341#”>Hydro Innovations NSW regional manager Phil Rothheudt recently had the
privilege of watching the team from ACT Emergency Services operate a
Gorman-Rupp T-Series pump to fill their firefighting planes.

The planes that were being filled were SEAT aircraft (Single Engine
Attack Tanker) with each taking about 3500 litres, which the Gorman-Rupp pump
was able to complete in less than 2_ minutes – an excellent improvement in
performance over the old pump, which took 3_ minutes. With the Gorman-Rupp
T-Series delivering a 35% reduction in filling time, ACT Emergency Services was
able to significantly reduce their turnaround time.

The Gorman-Rupp T-Series pump was again used to fill up one of the ‘Bomber’
aircrafts (LAT – Large Air Tanker), which was an RFS 737 plane with a capacity
of 16,000 litres. The aircraft was filled in just 14_ minutes, down from 23
minutes with the previous pump, thereby achieving a 37% improvement.

Three different liquids are used to fill an aircraft: Water, straight
from the hydrant at the air base using the Gorman-Rupp T-Series pump; Retardant
(phosphate) premixed on the ground and then pumped into the aircraft; and, Foam
(Blaze Tamer 380), which is in a concentrated form, and then ‘sucked in’ and
mixed with the water via a venturi on the suction hose of the pump.
