Lift stations

The ReliaSource® 6x6T above-ground lift station is the newest addition to the Gorman-Rupp line of fully customizable, compact and pre-engineered packaged stations. This unit comes standard with all the existing features of the 6x6, but with an additional 3' of height that allows for more options. The new configuration accommodates more sophisticated controls like Reduced Voltage Solid State (RVSS) Starters and Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs). The added space also allows for easier access to routine maintenance items, such as check valves, plug valves, gauges and air release valves.

Self-priming pumps

Iwaki has designed a new series of self-priming chemical transfer pumps that can suction lift 13 ft. out of tankers or from bulk storage containers. The self-priming design of the SMX series requires the pump to only be primed once upon installation and never re-primed regardless of foot or check valves in the system. Contrary to air operated diaphragm pumps, the series does not require preventative maintenance and comes with a 2-year warranty.

Metering pumps

The Neptune Series 500 chemical metering pumps feature a Variable Oil By-pass™ stroke adjustment that allows for better valve performance than traditional variable-linkage designs. This allows the valve checks to have extra time to seat even in heavy liquids since they are idle during the by-pass portion of the suction and discharge strokes. Other features include the ability to be adjustable from 10% to 100% of capacity via micrometer dial and Eze-Clean™ valve cartridges that can be removed for cleaning without disturbing the piping to the pump.
