Sykes Pumps extends hydraulic submersible range with 3" Hydraset 80
Pump hire specialist, Sykes Pumps, has further enhanced its range of hydraulic submersible pumping solutions for use across a wide range of sectors, including construction, marine, quarrying and wastewater, with the launch of the 3” Hydraset 80 pump.
Adding to the 4” and 6” hydraulic submersibles already available, the Hydraset 80 offers customers increased choice and flexibility and is available from all 25 depots across the company’s UK network. The pump comprises a power pack, pump end and a set of hydraulic hoses and can be quickly installed. The 3” Hydraset is ideally suited for suction depths too great for standard surface mounted pumps to achieve.
Compact, lightweight and robust, the 3” Hydraset 80 provides an ideal option for remote sites and any location where electricity is not available. The 3” pump end enables easy access into small chambers and manholes while offering excellent performance with a maximum flow rate of 31l/s, a maximum head of 31m and a solids handling capacity of 22mm. The pumps are also economical to run and are suitable for 24/7 requirements, with an integrated fuel tank capacity of 145 litres. Fuel consumption is low at just five litres/hr at 1500rpm, enabling constant operation without refuelling for up to 29 hours.
Explains Chris Graham, sales director at Sykes Pumps: “The 3” Hydraset 80 is the ideal solution for a wide range of environments, enabling customers to work in and around confined access without compromising on performance.
“We have introduced the new pump as a direct response to customer demand for a compact hydraulic submersible that can offer a flexible, low cost and high efficiency solution for rapid deployment on site and we’re confident the 3” model will become as popular as the larger alternatives within the range.”
Fitted with a silenced diesel engine for quiet, unobtrusive operation, the Hydraset 80 pump end is driven by environmentally-friendly biodegradable oil, while the engine offers excellent fuel efficiency and lower emissions to combine cost-efficiency with eco performance. Quick release hydraulic couplings enable leak-proof operation and automatic shutdown enhances safety, prevents blockages and overloading. Finally, lightweight construction makes the new pump extremely easy to manoeuvre on all surfaces.
Chris adds: The 3” Hydraset 80 is available with a wide range of accessories and Sykes Pumps’ full technical support, making it the go-to compact hydraulic solution for any environment, no matter how challenging.
“It’s all part of our commitment to ensuring customers can rely on us to offer them flexibility, cost-effectiveness and performance for any requirement in any location.”
