Gorman-Rupp Prime Aire priming-assisted pumps are a leading choice for contractors, municipalities and industrial operators throughout the world handling the toughest jobs from sewage bypass to large volume dewatering.

The positive priming of Prime Aire is perfect for applications involving long suction lines, intermittent flows or large volumes of air in the pumped liquid.

Because Prime Aire uses a venturi and compressor, leaks associated with traditional vacuum-assisted pumps are eliminated. This means our pumps are better for the environment but also allows them to operate under flooded suction conditions without leaking.

  • Air Compressor Over The Pump: Equipped with a “compressor-over-pump" arrangement option providing a self-contained, compact, flexible design and allows for ease of operation and service if necessary.
  • Impeller Selection: Utilize a variety of impeller types based on your specific application. Many models feature rugged, two-vane, ductile iron, semi-open solids handling impellers that handle up to 4" (101.6 mm) diameter solids. For clean water applications, pump models use higher-efficiency enclosed impellers.
  • Auto-Start Controls: Allow the pump to turn on and off in response to fluctuating liquid levels. A state-of-the-art microprocessor-based digital engine control monitors all engine functions including alarms. Control panel has an easy-to-read 32-character display. It is ideal for conserving fuel, avoiding engine overhauls and comes standard on priming-assisted pump models.
  • Abrasive-Handling Seal: Most priming-assisted models use oversized, oil-lubricated mechanical seals that are specifically designed for abrasive and/or solids-handling service. Additional seal configurations available.
