Another meat processing plant has taken delivery of a Gorman-Rupp packaged self-priming wastewater pump system.

The plant wanted wastewater pumps that were capable of passing a 35mm solid and were reliable primers. It wanted self-priming pumps because of easy access for operators and the safety of having the pumps mounted at ground level without the need to open wet well covers or use cranes to access them. The pumps needed to deliver five litres per second (L/s) against a 20m total head.

This duty suited the Gorman-Rupp T2A60-B sewage pump perfectly. It is capable of passing a 38mm solid, and will prime ‒ and most importantly ‒ re-prime reliably on suction lifts up to 7.6m. The pump has a removable cover plate to allow operators to access pump internals for inspection and/or repair, and has a suction flap valve that can be inspected and/or replaced without opening the pump and without removing it from the pipe system.

The complete pump system consisted of two pumps, two non-return valves, two isolation valves, two air release valves and all the interconnecting piping. All components were selected to suit self-priming wastewater pumps.
