Sykes Pumps introduces economical super silenced unit

After many months of market research and product development following discussions with customers, it is with great delight that we introduce our latest pump innovation – the Super Wispaset 80 eco.

This pump offers clients a reliable and compact super silenced pumping solution with exceptional fuel efficiency and a small footprint.

Specifically designed for specialist applications including construction, utilities, civil engineering, marine and quarries, the Super Wispaset 80 eco provides impressive performance capacities and features an acoustic canopy guaranteeing quiet, unobtrusive operation.

Our latest unit consumes just 1.4 litres of diesel per hour and has a fully bunded built-in fuel tank enabling continuous use for up to 24 hours. This 3” model will deliver heads of up to 24 metres, flows of up to 36 litres per second and can handle solids of up to 40mm.

Other features and benefits include:

– Low noise operation – 64 dBA @ 7m
– Fuel efficient engine for hours of unattended operation
– Compact and lightweight
– Hard-wearing cast iron parts
– Easily changeable shaft seals
– Compact and manoeuvrable
– Automatic priming and re-priming

Quiet functionality and high performance are two of the most sought-after characteristics our customers look for when selecting a pump for a working site, making the Super Wispaset 80 eco an industry leader.

These features allow discreet deployment in well-populated areas whilst still accommodating the flows and solids handling capacities our customers desire.

Our new pump also encompasses Sykes’ revered Univac priming system which facilitates rapid priming and re-priming automatically from dry.

Powered by the latest Hatz engine, the Super Wispaset 80 eco is so-named because of its incredible fuel efficiency and low emissions.

Chris Graham, sales director at Sykes Pumps, said: “This pump has been billed as the small pump of choice for water treatment projects, emergency water applications and similar environments due to its remarkable output and compact design.

“In previous years, our 4”, 6” and 8” models have proven a big hit with customers and so the introduction of an easily transportable and slighter 3” super silenced pump ensures a more convenient solution in scenarios where smaller flows are required.”
