Gorman-Rupp EradicatorMike Gillespie
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. In addition, the back cover includes a patented lightweight inspection cover that can be easily removed to inspect the impeller.
This innovative design dramatically 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 improve system uptime and decrease service calls to unclog pumps, and increase overall performance.
Gorman-Rupp developed this pump improvement to enhance the solids passing capability of the T-Series and V-Series pumps, especially in the severest applications with the proliferation of 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. In addition, 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 inspect the interior of the pump quickly.
The Gorman-Rupp Eradicator is supplied with new pumps or installed in existing pumps in the field.
Envirep has successfully installed the Eradicator™ in both the T-Series and the V-Series pumps.
For existing pumps, upgrade kits are available, including everything you need to make field conversions simple.
