OEM contractor, Aquabio Ltd were tasked to build a new Waste Water treatment and re-use plant at Bakkavor [Cucina Sano] in Boston. The site produces Italian ready meals for Marks & Spencer and the new plant allows them to re-use 80% of their water used for production.
Hydromarque Ltd were asked to quote for 3No. Gorman-Rupp Super T Series™ self-priming, suction lift, solids handling pump, on a duty/assist/stanby basis. This would allow for ease of maintenance of the pumps as they can be worked on locally and at the surface. This also eliminated the need for pumps to be installed underground with lifting gear requirements and the possible need for confined space entry. Aquabio had used these pumps at many sites in the past with great success.
It was agreed to install 3No. 3” Gorman-Rupp Super T Series pumps fitted with 316 SST wetted parts [Impeller, shaft, wear-plate and seal plate], which were fully commissioned by Aquabio and Hydromarque Ltd.
To date, all 3No. pumps are still in and running trouble free.
