The PAH16A60-C-B-C18 heavy-duty, priming-assisted pump from Gorman-Rupp Company can be used for mining, quarries, bypass pumping and other installations where high flow rates are a necessity. It has flows to 15,000 gpm, total dynamic heads up to 204 feet, and a solids handling capability of up to 4 inches. The 18- by 16-inch pump is driven by a 755 hp, Interim Tier IV, Caterpillar C18 twin turbocharged, charge air-cooled diesel engine power unit with an auto-start control panel and float switch assembly. Its priming system uses a venturi and compressor, eliminating leaks. An oversized, oil-lubricated mechanical seal allows the pump to run dry continuously without damage. 419/755-1011; www.grpumps.com.
