Sykes Pumps aid fire installation

At Sykes Pumps, we continually update our products and regularly add new innovations to our fleet to ensure we always have the most advanced units within the industry. Our continual investment in new pumps was once again highlighted by the launch of a new medium head pump – the 150/100 Super wispa. This was designed and manufactured with general purpose applications in mind – particularly open mines and quarries – making it ideal for awkward locations or uneven terrain.

While the new pumps were being developed in the factory, we received a call from an existing customer who sought a pump for a temporary fire installation. Their on-site pump had broken down and so an alternative was needed while repairs were carried out. In order to accommodate the customer, we conducted a vigorous testing process prior to schedule so that we could satisfy their intended programme. This also meant our unit had to be adapted to a flooded suction configuration to match the design of their current fire protection system.
