Eradicator Solids Management System – Lift Station Pump Clogging Eliminated
A municipality in Canada had a problem with “flushables” clogging their sewage pumps and negatively impacting the up-time of their sewage treatment system. The pumps were experiencing excessive build-up of “flushable” wipes & rags, often causing damage to the impellers. These blockages resulted in extra maintenance costs for the municipality due to the need to frequently unclog the pumps. Unfortunately, this is a common issue that many municipalities face today. Flushable wipes, as well as non-flushable items such as masks & gloves, entering sewage systems and causing pump clogging and damage is an ever-increasing problem. This issue will keep getting worse without an engineered solution like Eradicator Solids Management System for solids handling within sewage treatment systems.
Application Experts at John Brooks investigated the problem and recommended the Eradicator Solids Management System from Gorman-Rupp. The Eradicator system, along with appropriate
Gorman-Rupp pumps, is designed to break up the materials and guide them through the pumps more easily – essentially eliminating the blockage. This municipality had 2 Gorman-Rupp T10 pumps
already installed and as a result, the installation of the Eradicator system onto their existing pumps was an easy and simple process. The Eradicator system helped the municipality save on service and maintenance costs and eliminate unscheduled downtime of the system. The municipality was so impressed with the results that they are in the process of upgrading all of their Gorman-Rupp Lift
Stations to Eradicator Technology. For existing Gorman-Rupp Super T Series pump installations, where clog-prone materials are affecting uptime and maintenance costs, the Eradicator Converter Kit is the recommended solution.
- Eliminated Clogging
- Improved Up-time
- Reduced Nuisance After Hours Service Calls & Associated Costs
Eradicator Solids Management System is specifically designed for today’s new sewage that contains sanitary wipes, plastic bags, latex gloves, disposable masks, feathers, hair, sludge
and other types of debris that lead to clogging and disruption to the sewage pumping system. The Eradicator helps to eliminate nuisance clogging and creates a more efficient flow path that reduces overall life cycle costs.

How It Works
- The Eradicator system features an aggressive self-cleaning wear plate incorporating a number of notches and grooves, as well as a patent-pending lacerating tooth,that helps break up stringy materials and pass them through the pump without impacting performance or interrupting service.
- A special back cover includes a patented lightweight inspection cover that can easily be removed if it is necessary to inspect the impeller.
