Gorman-Rupp”s solids-handling, self-priming centrifugal pump, the Ultra VTM, is available in a variety of sizes and offers up to 60 percent increased pressure and up to 40 percent increased flow over any self-priming centrifugal solids handling pump of the same size, according to the company. When system requirements exceed the Ultra V’s performance range of a single stage pump, it can be configured with a second stage – the UltraMate – that increases maximum pressure up to 300 percent. The UltraMate is mounted directly to the discharge of the Ultra V through a transition chamber that reduces the loss associated with conventional series connected pumps. This unique mount minimizes the footprint of the pump as well.
