WITH the endless advantages automatic self-priming pumps offered the end user, the one disadvantage was water carryover into the vacuum pump lubrication oil.
Sykes Pumps has now eliminated water carryover with the introduction of the Vacuumax (VMX) auto prime priming system.
The Vacuumax priming chamber eliminates carryover due to the internal baffle deflector plates and pancake float, which make the pump ideal for wellpoint dewatering along with sump pumping applications that have short and long suction conditions.
The Vacuumax also reduces misting from the vacuum pump exhaust as the oil reservoir and two stage oil/air separator are fitted integral to the Vacuumax chamber.
With the addition of the Vacuumax priming system, along with stainless steel wear plates and impellers as standard, Sykes is leading the market in reducing the life cycle cost of all of its auto prime pump range.
