Gorman-Rupp's priming assisted pumps are the perfect solution for sewage bypass operations, construction site dewatering and other applications where intermittent flow can be a problem. These units feature a patented positive priming system that virtually eliminates leaks, reducing environmental concerns and giving the unique capability to operate under flooded-suction staging conditions.
The Redi-Prime priming system is specifically designed with the environment in mind. By incorporating a positive sealing float box and an integrally mounted diaphragm vacuum pump into the priming assembly, environmental contamination associated with the priming system is virtually eliminated. Models are engineered with highly efficient, enclosed impellers, with some models featuring double volutes increasing performance far beyond many competitors pumps.
