Gorman-Rupp EradicatorJosh Price
The Gorman-Rupp Eradicator Solids Management System features an aggressive self-cleaning wear plate including notches and grooves and a patent-pending lacerating tooth that helps break up stringy materials and passes them through the pump without impacting performance or interrupting service. The back cover includes a patented lightweight inspection cover that can be easily removed to inspect the impeller.
This innovative design greatly reduces troublesome clogging and expensive downtime.
Gorman-Rupp developed the Eradicator™ Solids Management System for the Super T Series® and V-Series® self-priming centrifugal sewage pumps to dramatically improve system uptime, decrease service calls to unclog pumps and increase overall performance.
Gorman-Rupp developed this pump improvement because they found that even though the T-Series and V-Series pumps have great solids passing capability, the pumps were still clogging occasionally in the severest applications with wet wipes, plastic bags, rags, etc.
The Eradicator™ includes a wear plate with notches and grooves and a tooth that continuously cleans the impeller leading edge. The notches and grooves prevent solids from getting stuck between the impeller and the wear plate. The tooth prevents rags and wipes from collecting at the eye of the impeller and allows them to pass through the pump.
Another feature Gorman-Rupp added to the Eradicator™ Solids Management System is a lightweight inspection port. This allows the operator to easily inspect the interior of the pump.
The Gorman-Rupp Eradicator is supplied with new pumps or installed in existing pumps in the field.
Envirep has installed the Eradicator™ in both the T-Series and the V-Series pumps with great success.
For existing pumps, upgrade kits are available including everything you need to make field conversions simple.
