A large pet food manufacturer has recently chosen Gorman-Rupp self-priming pumps for its wastewater pumping application due to their low lifecycle cost and safety benefits for operators to monitor and maintain.

The flow dictated the selection of a Gorman-Rupp T3A60S-B, which is the smallest in the Gorman-Rupp Super T family. The pump is capable of delivering a maximum flow up to 25 litres per second, a maximum head of 33m, and is capable of operating on a suction lift up to 7.6m.

Although the smallest in this range, the pump is still capable of passing a 63mm spherical solid and is also fitted with a self cleaning wear plate system, enabling it to handle stringy materials such as rags, gloves and wet wipes. A large removable cover plate gives operators access to pump internals without the need to disconnect the pump from the piping system.

The pet food company wanted the pump located outside of the wastewater pit so that operators had easy and safe access to it. Besides positively affecting safety, being easy to access and not requiring cranes or any other lifting device to access the pump, this also reduces maintenance cost.

Genuine Gorman-Rupp self-priming pumps deliver reliable and effective wastewater pumping to water authorities, councils and businesses around Australia looking for safe and cost effective pumping.
