NEW CENTRIFUGAL PUMP RANGE BY GORMAN-RUPP

Gorman-Rupp has released a new range of centrifugal end suction pumps.

The 6500 Series, available now from Australian distributor, Hydro Innovations, contains six solids handling models and three effluent pump models.

The range has been designed to have a very low lifecycle cost and minimal service requirements, making them ideal for delivering an excellent ROI.

The “Smart Scroll” volute allows installers to position the discharge in any one of eight positions, which increases flexibility in pump installation to help reduce installation costs.

Pumps are fitted with SiC/SiC oil lubricated seals, with separate oil chambers for seal and bearing oil with separate sight glasses so that operators can tell at a glance that oil levels and clarity are right in each chamber.

The chambers are also separated by an atmospheric vent that keeps water pressure away from the bearings if a mechanical seal fails. Oversized bearings and alloy steel shafts (with options for stainless steel) add to the reliability, as does the double volutes designed into the higher head models.

Solids handling models have minimum 76mm spherical solids handling capability, flow rates from 20 litres per second (lps) through to 900 lps, and heads to 120m.

They also have a side access [clean-out] port for easy access to pump interiors for inspection and blockage removal, while pusher bolt capability assists in the removal of the suction flange.

Effluent models range in flow from 20 lps through to 350 lps, with heads to 155m.
