SF Series Pumps
Gorman-Rupp SF Series® submersible solids-handling pumps are designed to provide you with the ultimate in pumping performance. All SF Series pumps use NEMA Premium Efficiency motors and pass a minimum 3″ spherical solid. Vortex pumps use the patent-pending Staggerwing® impeller technology.
SF Series submersible solids-handling pumps are available in slide rail and construction / trash versions for use in most liquid removal applications.
The SF Series comes with 3″, 4″, 6″, and 8″ flanged discharge and power ranging from 3 – 75 HP (1.5 to 56 kW). These combinations will provide flows up to 3,100 gpm (195.6 lps) and heads to 190 feet (57.9 meters).
Built to the same exacting standards you’ve come to expect from our industry-leading self-priming pumps, SF Series pumps are designed for easy maintenance and constructed for long life.
- Press-fit motor with our patent-pending finned motor housing provides superior motor cooling resulting in increased motor life
- Moisture detection in both the seal and motor chambers standard
- All pumps pass a minimum 3″ spherical solid
- NEMA Premium Efficiency motors with Class H insulation standard on all models
- Externally adjustable face clearances, on channel impeller pumps, to improve pumping efficiency without time-consuming wear ring replacement
- Terminal housing and cable connections designed for easy in-the-field cable replacements
Designed for economical, trouble-free operation, the superior solids-handling capabilities of the Super T Series pumps make them ideally suited for a variety of applications including solids-laden liquids and slurries. The large volute design allows automatic repriming in a completely open system without the need for suction or discharge check valves.
Available in discharge sizes of three, four, six, eight and ten inches, this line of self-priming pumps boasts capacities to 3400 gallons per minute (214.5 liters per second) and heads to 148 feet (45 meters). Pumps four inches and larger are engineered to allow up to three-inch diameter spherical solids to pass through any critical area, including the recirculation port.
Super T Series pumps are available in several configurations, including a B version for higher head applications, close-coupled or engine-driven models. All Gorman-Rupp Super T Series pumps are backed by a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Eradicator Solids Management System
The Eradicator system features an aggressive self-cleaning wearplate incorporating a number of notches and grooves, as well as a patent-pending lacerating tooth, that helps break up stringy materials and pass them through the pump without impacting performance or interrupting service. A special back cover includes a patented lightweight inspection cover that can easily be removed if it is necessary to inspect the impeller. The innovative design greatly reduces troublesome clogging and expensive downtime.
U- Series Pumps
Up to 75% Efficiency
Gorman-Rupp Super-U Series® pumps are among the most efficient self-priming, solids handling pumps available. Their unique hydraulic design and smooth wall volute casing minimize friction loss and drag. The multi-vane, open impeller is designed for high efficiency operation yet can still handle limited solids. The pumps not only deliver high efficiencies (up to 75%), they also perform efficiently across a broad operating range. Varying machine loads that cause pumps to operate right or left of its best efficiency point will affect operating efficiency by only a small percentage. These pumps offer the same reliability and performance as the U-Series with additional features.
Easy to Maintain
Super U Series pumps are designed with ease of service in mind. Because they are self-priming, they can be mounted above the liquid being pumped. Should service or maintenance be required, it can be easily performed using common hand tools without disconnecting piping. With no elongated shafts present, routine service can be performed in confined work spaces. All Super U Series pumps can be coupled to a standard NEMA motor, which means there’s no waiting for special motor parts.
Gorman-Rupp Super U Series® pumps are available as basic units, ready for connection to power or flex-coupled or v-belt driven by an electric motor. When space is limited, flex-coupling often solves confined area issues. V-belt driven configurations offer the advantage of flexibility in speed selection and usually provides maximum operating speed for required head and capacity without needing to trim the impeller. Various belt and sheave options are available.
