Santos chooses high tech Gorman-Rupp pumps


For several applications within their coal seam gas projects, Santos is using the latest in self-priming centrifugal pump technology.

The company has chosen the new Ultra V Series of self-priming Gorman-Rupp pumps distributed by Hydro Innovations.

This new series of pump delivers high heads and high efficiency while effectively pumping large solid particles.

The pumps are designed for automatic, continuous, unattended operation and can be mounted high and dry above waste water sumps for easy access and service, says Garry Grant of Hydro Innovations.

The Ultra V Series pumps are available in three sizes (3”, 4” and 6”) with flows from 10l/s through to 100l/s and with heads to 90m (using a unique second stage Ultra Mate).

They will handle 76mm spherical solids as well as stringy waste such as rags in waste water.

Mr Grant says the pumps have been effectively used by power stations, abattoirs and sewage pump stations.
