Submersible pump deals with the dirt

SYKES Pumps has introduced a submersible drainage pump for handling dirty water from pits and ditches.

Available with 15, 20 and 25cm bore sizes, the PX30 pump is powered by a 56kW electric motor and is claimed to be capable of high outputs.

Standard specification includes an automatic low level cut out – a function designed to allow the pump to run dry for a limited period without causing overheating damage.

Other features include an automatic control function which enables the pump to be left unattended for long periods (0800-211611).
