A New South Wales meat process plant was looking to upgrade their effluent transfer pumps as their vertically mounted end suction pumps were requiring too much maintenance, which was proving costly.

The plant was looking for a pump that could deliver the efficiencies they were used to, including being able to draw water from the below ground wet well, and deliver the required flow which was up to 75 litres per second.

Hydro Innovations suggested they try a Gorman-Rupp V6A60-B, which is one of Gorman-Rupp’s Ultra V Series range of self priming wastewater pumps.

This range is the latest in solids handling self priming pump technology from Gorman-Rupp which can deliver hydraulic efficiencies up to 70 per cent.

The pump is also easy to maintain, and the safest self priming pump on the market.

Keeping the pump at peak efficiency is also easy for operators, as clearance adjustments are done externally, without the need to open the pump or remove it from service (one operator, two spanners, and four minutes).

This minimises power costs and reduces the incidence of blockages.

The pump was coupled to a 75kW motor and supplied to site for years of trouble free pumping.
