Our new product in Australian industries with tough, high-pressure pumping requirements. The robust Eradicator makes pumping stringy materials and preventing blockages easy!

The world’s leading self-priming pump manufacturer, Gorman-Rupp, has just announced the release of the “Eradicator” version of its high-performance Ultra-V Series wastewater pump.

Some applications are tougher than others. Whether you are dealing with today’s “New Sewage”, sanitary wipes, plastic bags, feathers, hair, sludge, stringy material, or any other type of debris, downtime costs you money.

The Ultra-V Eradicator is able to deliver higher pressures than any other solids handling self-priming pump, while reducing blockages in wastewater streams from the likes of rags, wet wipes, undigested hay, and feathers.

The new pumps are an extension of Gorman-Rupp’s Ultra-V series pumps that are heavily used by sewage treatment plants and meat process plants.

The “Eradicator Solids Management System” now comes as an option including rugged and robust design features that minimise the downtime associated with blockages, improving efficiency in wastewater treatment.

The new design features include an aggressive self-cleaning wear plate incorporating a number of notches and grooves as well as a patented lacerating tooth that helps break up stringy materials and scrape them off the impeller vanes, passing them through the pump discharge without impacting performance or interrupting service.

A special cover-plate is now incorporated into the pump to make it safer and easier for operators to access pump internals, without disconnecting any of the inlet or outlet piping.


Superior Performance 

  • The Ultra V Series® and VS Series solids-handling, self-priming centrifugal trash pumps offer up to three times the pressure and up to 60% more flow.
  • Available in a variety of pump station configurations or stand-alone in 3”, 4” and 6” sizes.
  • The superior solids-handling and increased pressure capabilities of the Ultra V Series pumps make them ideally suited for a variety of industrial and sewage applications.
  • Greater efficiencies
  • Self-cleaning features
  • Reduced footprint
  • Unique configuration capabilities
  • Further Improved solids-handling
  • Externally removable suction check valve

For existing Ultra V Series installations where stubborn, clog-prone materials are affecting uptime and maintenance costs, the Eradicator Solids Management System is now available as a retrofit kit, and can easily be installed on any existing Ultra V Series pump in the field.

Gorman-Rupp’s upgrade kits include everything you need to put the best self-cleaning pump technology in the industry to work for you!

Easier access to the impeller, increased uptime, improved operational efficiency, reduced maintenance costs and lower life-cycle costs are only some of the benefits of the “Eradicator” system.

The pump is available in standard cast iron or with hardened iron internals to cope with abrasive applications. Pumps are capable of flows to 100 litres per second and pressures to 90 metres.
