Sykes Group will display a Himax HH220i auto-prime pump designed specifically for mining applications on Stand R122 during AIMEX 2007 – Asia Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition, to be held at Sydney’s Olympic Park from September 4 to 7, 2007.
According to the company, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, the Sykes HH220i auto-prime pump offers discharge heads to 138 m and flows of up to 282 lit/sec, with stainless steel internals as standard.
The mining pump is available in diesel or electric drive and has been designed to suit the demands of the mining industry.
As with all pumps in Sykes’ Himax range it is a true self-priming pump, so does not require manual priming of the suction line or filling of a priming tank in order to begin normal operation.
In addition the pump can run dry for extended periods, due to the oil bath mechanical seal assembly, which allows priming with long suction hoses and suction lifts of up to 9 metre.
