The Gorman-Rupp Co. today introduced a new solids handling, self-priming centrifugal pump, the Ultra V, that offers performance levels never before achieved by self-priming pumps of this type.
At a press conference attended by WWD, the company said the new pump has higher pressure, higher flow, greater efficiency and time-saving maintenance features.
"The Ultra V is another example of Gorman-Rupp's leadership in the pump industry and the benefits of this pump are the result of decades of innovation and experience," Jeff Gorman, president of Gorman-Rupp said. "We listened to input from the people putting our pumps to work every day-customers, end users and distributors'to ensure we developed a pump that meets the new and unique challenges of today's waste and industrial marketplace."
The Ultra V Series of pumps, which are available in a variety of sizes, achieve up to 60% increased pressure and up to 40% increased flow over any self-priming centrifugal solids handling pump of the same size.
When system requirements exceed the Ultra V's performance range of a single stage pump, it can be configured with a second stage-the UltraMate-that increases maximum pressure up to 300%.
The UltraMate is mounted directly to the discharge of the Ultra V through a transition chamber that reduces the loss associated with conventional series connected pumps. This mount minimizes the footprint of the pump as well.
