Gorman-Rupp’ssolids-handling, self-priming centrifugal pump, the Ultra VTM, isavailable in a variety of sizes and offers up to 60 percent increasedpressure and up to 40 percent increased flow over any self-primingcentrifugal solids handling pump of the same size, according to thecompany. When system requirements exceed the Ultra V’s performancerange 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 Vthrough a transition chamber that reduces the loss associated withconventional series connected pumps. This unique mount minimizes thefootprint of the pump as well.
