Sykes Pumps has expanded its new range of electric submersible pumps for sewage handling applications following growing demand from the waste water sector.

The major investment follows Sykes Pumps involvement with numerous water company framework projects during AMP5 and, as the sector gears up for AMP6, reiterates the company’s position at the vanguard of the pump hire sector for waste water projects.

The additions to the fleet includes many pumps which will immediately be deployed to site for major sewage bypass pumping schemes. The company has also added new DOL, Variable kW and VFD control panels to its comprehensive range of electric submersible accessories, to support the new arrivals.

Explains Chris Graham, major accounts director at Sykes Pumps: “This investment in our waste water submersible fleet is part of our commitment to anticipate and respond to our customer’s operational and commercial needs 24/7. Our track record with the waste water sector means that we understand the business critical importance of having the right kit in place within the required time frame and, by adding to our fleet, we are increasing our capacity and ensuring response times are in line with water company and contractor requirements.”

Incorporating the latest submersible pump design technology, the new XFP pumps incorporate premium efficiency IE3 motors and provide excellent rag handling, delivering flows exceeding 450 litres/second. The pumps can be accompanied by variable frequency drives that maximise performance and deliver optimum efficiency while minimising starting current demand.

These ATEX-approved submersibles are available from Sykes Pumps in a full range of sizes from 2.2kW (80mm) to 75kW (300mm), with a compact design and versatile configuration to enable use as a direct replacement for most models of installed pump.

Chris continues: “We continue to see growing demand for waste water pumping solutions nationwide and our national network of depots means that we are well-placed to meet that demand quickly and can service pumps regularly while they are out on hire. Adding to our fleet of waste water submersibles means that our capacity can keep pace with that growing demand to meet both planned and emergency customer requirements.”
