Sykes Pumps launch new Bentonite Pump range

As a company committed to expanding our hire fleet, Sykes Pumps are delighted to unveil a new range of specialist Bentonite pumps. Driven by popular customer demand, our technical team have developed two new models: the B150 and the B150E.

Manufactured specifically with the construction, utility and civil engineering sectors in mind, these bespoke innovations have been developed around our existing GP150M both in terms of specification and performance.

Available in two versions – B150 (diesel engine) and B150E (electric motor) – the Bentonite pump has been designed for projects where deep piling or excavation work is being carried out. Both models deploy a 60 cfm rotary vane vacuum which ensures automatic delivery of prime and re-prime whenever required.
