AllightSykes Water Management brand, also known as Sykes has been contributing to the global auto-prime pump market for over 40 years. With a core focus on priming pumps that deliver improved fluid handling and reduced maintenance requirements for the mining and construction industries.

Compressor Prime
This technology involves passing jets of compressed air through venturi-type nozzle to evacuate the pump casing and suction line, this ensures priming is efficient and uninterrupted even through snore conditions.

No moving parts which reduces overall maintenance
Other features and benefits include:
  • Fitted with a stainless steel 316 impeller for maximum corrosion resistance
  • Venturi prime- basic design, easy to maintain
  • Volute- spheroidal graphite cast iron ensure heavy duty strength
  • Water plates- 316 stainless steel alternative front and rear wearing plates
  • Flapper style check valve for any deck discharge
  • Water cooled compressors ensure lower running costs
  • Oil bathed mechanical seals allows for extended periods of dry running
  • 431 stainless steel aids in preventing any rust or pitting on the shaft
Vacuum Prime
Fitted with a vacuum priming chamber which helps to reduce any carry-over due to the stainless steel baffle deflector plates and pancake float.

Used for well point dewatering and long suction requirements
Other features and benefits include:

  • 60cfm vacuum prime
  • Float type head gear manufactured from anti-corrosive materials
  • Over centre positive latches 
  • Volute manufacture from spheroidal graphite cast iron for extra strength
  • Corrosion resistant stainless steel 316 impeller
  • Flapper check valve for deck, ball type or top discharge
