What's so good about it? The self-priming pump unit is fully automatic with a simple key ignition and swi release couplings for faster installation, and is capable of pumping up to 130,000 litres per hour. as it can be transported to site and set up without any specialist equipment, training or commissioning, localised flooding can be brought under control faster than ever before. What they say: Sykes Pumps' sales director, Chris Graham: "Transport legislation has been tightened to restrict the weights that can be towed by vans and non-tachographed vehicles, which can delay transportation of larger pumps to site. With the launch of the lightweight and compact rapid response unit, Sykes Pumps is resolving that issue, ensuring that an emergency solution can be deployed within minutes, without additional transport or manpower."

The new unit contains an Isuzu 4Le2X diesel engine and has been designed to meet eu Stage IIIb emissions regulations and the ePa uS Tier 4 final regulations. The new model runs at 1800rpm and offers a 26.7% increase in total head over previous versions, with improved build quality and sound attenuation. It is suitable for a full range of water and wastewater applications.
