The team operating the Dubai AllightPrimax facility (known as Sykes Group in some world markets) are specialists in pumpset customisation. Their skills were recently called on to deliver a custom build Extra High Head Mining Pump suitable for an extremely cold mining region. AllightPrimax were able to quickly and effectively respond with a pump unit that met and exceeded customer expectations in regards to design, manufacture, price and delivery.
The clever part of the design was to fit the PRIMAX XH150 x Caterpillar C13 diesel pumpset into a modified shipping container. This pump and engine combination can reach a maximum head (pressure) of 185m (606ft) and flows up to 150L/sec (540m3/hr, 2,376USGPM).
The Primax range of pumps are heavy duty, automatic self-priming, and single stage end suction pumps. They are designed, manufactured and tested in accordance with ISO 9001 Quality System and ISO 9906 Rotodynamic Pumps Hydraulic performance acceptance test Grades 2 to meet the harshest of environments and applications.
- Primax XH150 x Caterpillar C13 pumpset is mounted inside a 20’ Standard ISO container.
- 50mm Glass wool on the inner container walls and covered by perforated GI sheet to insulate from the external sub zero conditions.
- This design can be used also as a Soundproof Container by just changing the inlet and outlet louvers at both ends.
