The Gorman-Rupp Pump Company is proud to announce the addition of the PAH16A60C-B-C18 to our line of Prime Aire Plus pumps.
The PAH16A60C-B-C18 is a heavy duty, priming-assisted pump ideal for mining, quarries and other installations where high flow rates are a necessity. This pump boasts flows to 15,000 gallons per minute (946 lps), and total dynamic heads up to 204 feet (62 meters), and a solids handling capability of up to 4" (100 mm) diameter spherical solids.
The 18" x 16" (450 mm x 400 mm) pump model is driven by a 755 HP, Interim Tier IV, Caterpillar C18 twin turbocharged, charge air cooled diesel engine power unit. It is also furnished with an auto-start control panel and float switch assembly.
All Prime Aire Plus pumps feature Gorman-Rupp's priming system, which uses a venturi and compressor, eliminating the leaks associated with traditional vacuum-assisted pumps. An oversized, oil-lubricated mechanical seal allows the pump to run dry continuously without damage.
