Silt Away

As part of our commitment to complying with growing environmental obligations, Sykes Pumps have developed a new Silt Away unit which can be used in conjunction with our range of 6” (150mm) pumps. The product has been specifically designed to separate suspended solids and sediment from water pumped from various ground sources, including construction sites, rivers and drains.

Pumped water passes through the Silt Away filters via a Lamella platebox, allowing solids contained in water to drop into a discharge chamber below. This compartment can be easily emptied at ground level without the unit being decommissioned, making them perfect for applications were continuous operation is essential.
