Abattoir chooses pumps for easy maintenance

Thursday, 27 June, 2019 | Supplied by: Hydro Innovations


Darling Irrigation turned to Hydro Innovations for pumps that were reliable, were easy to maintain and ensured operator safety for the new North Bourke Abattoir.

Darling Irrigation supplies solutions for irrigation, domestic water systems, mining hydraulics and stock watering, with a staff of around 50 across four locations in western NSW and one in Launceston.

The company recently undertook a contract for the design and construction of water and wastewater infrastructure for the North Bourke Abattoir. It approached Hydro Innovations for solutions using Gorman-Rupp self-priming pumps.

There were five applications for a total of nine pumps, from ‘kill floor’ hose down to pond storage transfer and effluent pumping. As some of these applications contained abrasive media in the pumped water, Hydro Innovations offered pumps with Gorman-Rupp ‘hard iron’ internals to reduce wear rates and lengthen the intervals between servicing.

As well as providing reliability and longevity in tough pumping conditions, the self-priming pumps could be mounted at ground level so that operators have easy and safe access for monitoring and maintenance, without the need for cranes.

Phil Chegwidden, Project Manager on the job for Darling Irrigation, said he was impressed by the easy installation, quick priming and smooth operation of the pumps. He said he could understand why many abattoirs have standardised on Gorman-Rupp pumps for their wastewater systems.
