The Sykes range of high performance submersible hydraulic pumps comprises 100mm and 150mm models with electric start, diesel driven, hydraulic power packs which are fully protected by an automatic shutdown system.
These units are ideal for circumstances where the suction lift is too great for a conventional diesel driven pump, or if the location of the fluid to be pumped will not allow a surface mounted pump to be placed nearby, or if local power availability prevents the use of an appropriate electric submersible pump.
The hydraulic pump ends are made from aluminium which combines strength with a unit that is light enough to be easily manhandled on site. However, they also incorporate a certified lifting eye and fork lift slots for ease of positioning and movement. The units unique design mean that they are capable of high flows and low heads, or low flows and high heads so whatever situation you are faced with these units can provide you with a viable solution.
The pump ends are connected, by hydraulic lines, to a power pack which is driven by a fully silenced diesel engine meaning that these units can be used in areas where ambient noise is a consideration.
The quick release couplings ensure that the hydraulic hoses are simple to operate and leak proof, but the hydraulic system can run on synthetic, biodegradable or vegetable oil if they are being used where environmental considerations are greater.
The hydraulic system incorporate a large return filter ensuring that any contaminants are captured whilst the fuel tank has flushing panels and a drain facility as well as providing 24hr running capability. Safety features include full engine protection and hydraulic shut off through oil loss.
High specification motors and replaceable stainless steel wear plates are featured throughout the range.
The unique Sweepax range of hydraulically driven, heavy duty, slurry pumps.
In addition to our standard range of hydraulic submersibles Sykes Pumps are the only company in the UK able to offer for hire the Sweepax unit. The unique Sweepax hydraulic submersible pumps are capable of handling 50% dry solids and can be used to pump what was once thought to be unpumpable!
Portable and manoeuvrable the Sweepax offers unbeatable speed in dealing with solids and slurries and can lead to considerable time and cost savings. The Sweepax operates beyond the capabilities of existing centrifugal pumps and is ideal for sewage, wastewater, chemical and dredging industries, and also processes that create heavy residue such as oil refineries. Due to the specialist nature of these units we would always recommend that a site survey is carried out by one of our specialist pump advisors in advance, for more information please enquiry here or call us 0800 211 611.
