Hydro Innovations has introduced a new range of self-priming wastewater
pumps made especially for pumping corrosive and abrasive water.
Manufactured using CD4MCu, a duplex stainless steel that’s more
corrosion-resistant and up to 50% harder than 316 grade stainless steel, the
new Gorman-Rupp Super T Series self-priming centrifugal wastewater pumps can
also handle spherical solids up to 76mm in diameter with most models (100mm
discharge and larger), making this range ideal for pumping solids laden flows. The
pumps are suitable for flows from 5 l/s up to 200 l/s and for pressures up to
The self-cleaning wear plate system in the Super T Series allows the
pump to handle stringy materials such as rags and wet-wipes. Operators can also
use the pump’s large removable inspection cover-plate to quickly and safely
access bigger items that make their way into the pump such as blankets or towels.
Gorman-Rupp’s Super T series centrifugal pumps can be mounted high and
dry above wet wells (up to 7.6 metres), allowing easy access for maintenance or
repair. Operators can also safely access the self priming pumps without having
to open wet well hatches, eliminating any situation that would require them to
work at heights or work over water. Additionally, operators do not have to
employ lifting devices or cranes to retrieve the pumps.
Gorman-Rupp’s Super T series CD4MCu stainless
steel pumps are recommended for pumping brine solutions or wastewater containing
