A major snack manufacturer based in NSW recently installed a Gorman-Rupp
self-priming pump to service one of their wastewater pits. Gorman-Rupp’s T2
pump was chosen because the flow was under 10 L/s; additionally, it can self
prime to 7.3 metres and re-prime unattended, automatically every time.
The manufacturer also liked the reliability that came with each
Gorman-Rupp pump. Since this particular application involved the pumping of corrosive
wastewater, the pump was fitted with internal parts made from CD4MCu, a duplex
stainless steel that not only resists corrosion but is also hard enough to
resist abrasion from grit in the pumped media.
Key features of Gorman-Rupp’s T2 self priming pumps include ability to pass
a 38mm spherical solid; and large removable inspection cover allowing operators
to access pump internals for inspection and/or service.
Since the pump is located at ground level, there is no need to employ
cranes or lifting devices, or expose operators to confined spaces during
service and maintenance, ensuring their safety.
Gorman-Rupp self-priming pumps are available from Hydro Innovations.
