Another meat processing plant has just taken delivery of a Gorman-Rupp packaged
self-priming wastewater pump system.
The plant sought wastewater pumps that could pass 35mm solids as well as
offer reliable priming. Self-priming pumps not only allow easy access to operators
but also assure safety as they can be mounted at ground level without needing
to open wet well covers or use cranes to access them. The pumps needed to
deliver 5 litres per second (L/s) against a 20m total head.
This duty suited the Gorman-Rupp T2A60-B sewage pump perfectly. Key features of this pump included ability to
pass 38mm solids; ability to prime and re-prime reliably on suction lifts up to
7.6 metres; removable cover-plate allowing operators to access pump internals
for inspection and/or repair; and suction flap valve that can be inspected
and/or replaced without opening the pump and without removing it from the pipe
The complete pump system consisted of two pumps, two non-return valves,
two isolation valves, two air release valves and all the inter-connecting
piping. All components were selected to suit self-priming wastewater pumps.
