Gorman-Rupp Announces New SludgeKat Positive Displacement Pump


The SludgeKat, Gorman-Rupp’s new self-priming, positive displacement, hydraulic piston pump, is designed to handle the applications involving heavy sludges and slurries where other pumps fail.

The SludgeKat has 4-in. (100-mm) suction and discharge ports and is capable of flows up to 226 gpm (14.3 lps) and heads up to 390-in. tdh (118.9 m). Depending on the product being pumped, SludgeKat can pass up to 2.4-in. diameter solids without damaging or clogging the pump. Units are equipped with the latest in Kohler Tier IV diesel engine-driven technology.

The pump end frame is mounted to a 52-gal. (197-l) fuel tank base and offers a full load run time of 25.5 hours. Each SludgeKat comes standard with a DOT-approved wheel kit. The pump end frame can be detached from the unit and when connected to optional 150-ft. hoses, provides increased portability around the job site.

The SludgeKat is the ideal pump for clarifying pits, wastewater treatment, loading and unloading rail cars, oil and gas drilling, mud pump applications, environmental clean-up and a variety of other heavy-duty industrial and construction applications.
