Sykes Pumps' new bio-diesel pump.

The Sykes Enviropump is fully bunded and also benefits from a quiet operating volume, with typical noise levels being 65 Dba at 7 m, so it can be operated day or night without any concerns about noise pollution. It has a fully filtered vacuum prime system with zero discharge, and the unit is also fitted with biodegradable oils.

The max head is 32 m, with max flow of 60 l/s and max solids of 52 mm. The fuel tank capacity is 175 litres.

Sykes says that the new environmentally-friendly pump is designed for water companies and government agencies that have strict environmental policies and are keen to keep their carbon footprints to a minimum. The Enviropump is also suitable for the construction, industrial and process sectors.
