Removable Rotating Assembly

Each Gorman-Rupp Ultra V Series pump is equipped with our easily removable, rotating assembly. Replacement is accomplished without disturbing the pump casing or piping, resulting in less downtime. Pusher bolt holes are provided to assist with removal. Additionally, the rotating assemblies are interchangeable between the Ultra V and UltraMate units.

Heavy-Duty Impeller

The heavy-duty, balanced, two-vane, semi-open ductile iron impeller provides maximum life. Pump out vanes on the back shroud reduce foreign material buildup behind the impeller, minimizing pressure on the seal and maximizing bearing life.

Cartridge Mechanical Seal

Gorman-Rupp’s double-floating, self-aligning, oil-lubricated mechanical seal is specifically designed for abrasive and/or trash handling applications. The silicon carbide faces and extra large seal oil chamber provide superior dry-run capability. This patented cartridge design allows for accurate and easy installation.

Removable Back Cover Plate

A large back cover plate allows for easy access to the pump interior. Pusher bolt capability assists in the removal of the back cover plate. Additionally, the back cover plates are interchangeable between the Ultra V and UltraMate units.

Self-Cleaning Replaceable Wearplate

A replaceable wearplate, matched to the cover plate, has Gorman-Rupp’s patent pending, self-cleaning design to ensure debris is cleared away and does not collect on the impeller vanes. This innovative design reduces the overall life cycle costs by minimizing blockage.

Shimless Cover Plate Adjustment

The shimless back cover plate adjustment allows for accurate maintenance of the clearance between the impeller and wearplate, without realigning belts, couplings or other drive components.

Once adjustments have been made, the unique lock collar and adjusting screw maintains the clearance setting even if the cover plate is removed.

Peak pump efficiency is maintained, while doubling the life of the impeller and wearplate.

The life of the wearplate is maximized with the combination of the shimless back cover adjustment and additional rotating assembly spacers.

Easily Removable Suction Check Valve

A positive sealing, externally removable suction check valve is standard, eliminating the need to disconnect any piping for inspection or replacement. The check valve has a blowout center that limits excessive volute pressure, protecting the pump.

Specifications are subject to change. Please contact your Gorman-Rupp Canada Distributor for more details.
