SELF-PRIMING WASTEWATER PUMP SOLVES POULTRY PROBLEM

Hazeldene’s Chicken Farm is a world-class producer of Free Range and RSPCA-accredited poultry, located near Bendigo, in Central Victoria. The company has a state-of-the-art poultry production facility and employs more than 750 people in the local Bendigo area. Its products are sold through Coles, Aldi, Woolworths, Harris farms, IGA, butcher shops, charcoal chicken stores and smaller specialty retailers.

In line with its focus on quality, Hazeldene’s was looking for a quality solution for its wastewater pumping needs. The company had previously tried several different brands of self-priming wastewater pumps, but none was able to deliver the quality of service Hazeldene’s engineers were looking for.

The requirement was for a pump capable of handling all the solids that form part of the wastewater stream in a chicken process plant (including feathers, internals, feet etc), and that was also an extremely reliable self-primer.

Hydro Innovations recommended a V3B60-B, which is part of Gorman-Rupp’s range of Ultra V Series self-priming wastewater pumps.

Adam Hazeldene, Technical Services Manager, was well aware of Gorman-Rupp’s quality reputation, and was keen to see one installed in his wastewater system, to solve the problems the company was experiencing.

The V3B60-B has a 100mm suction and 80mm discharge, and is capable of handling a 76mm spherical solid, along with stringy materials. The pump can also be placed on a suction lift up to 7.6 metres, can deliver flows to 50 litres per second, and can be relied on to prime and reprime automatically every time it is asked to pump.

For more corrosive environments, the V3B can be supplied with 316 internal components, and for abrasive applications, hardened iron materials can be fitted.

The pump was duly purchased and installed, and Adam Hazeldene has had no regrets about his purchase.
