Our Specialist Pump Team faced technical and delivery time challenges when bidding for an open Tender opportunity from Sonoma County California (USA), in January this year. Once again they demonstrated an innovative approach in providing efficient and cost effective pumping solutions to clients on time, every time.

The Tender specification was technically detailed and called for a heavy duty automatic self-priming pumpset. Requirements included a diaphragm prime system, 3” (75mm) solids handling capability, final Tier 4 diesel engine package and the capability of delivering 3200 USgpm (201 l/sec) maximum flow and a maximum pressure of 130 feet (39.6m).

Our Sykes/Primax CP150i pumpset solution was the most competitively priced package and fully compliant, delivering excellent operational capability while exceeding the performance expectations. The standard inclusion of 316ss impeller and wearplates, providing a first rate corrosion resistance was also a key factor in our client’s decision to award AllightPrimax (the registered trade mark of Sykes Group in North America) as the preferred supplier for this project.

The Sykes/Primax pump line has the unique ability to utilize a venture/ compressor, oil lube or oil less vacuum pump, or diaphragm priming system. This versatility allows Sykes/Primax to meet every customer’s preferred priming expectation and bid on every tender without taking exception to one priming system over another.

The tender was aggressively perused by all bidders and the specifications were written around a competitor’s product. Yet, the main challenge for the AllightPrimax pump specialists was around the critical delivery time.

As with every challenge comes an opportunity, our USA production team not only provided a cost effective and 100% technically compliant solution, but worked day and night to deliver the pumpset solution on time with functional advantages and extra benefits, ensuring excellent purchase value and superior performance.

AllightPrimax/Sykes Group has been a major force in the world’s automatic self-priming pump market for over 40 years. Our pumpset array provides a solution for all dewatering needs and it ranges from 75mm (3”) to 300mm (12”) with low, medium, high and Xtra high head pressure output. They are available in diesel, electric or hydraulic powered sets, which can be open or acoustic enclosed with skid, trailer or pontoon mount options.

The Sykes/Primax pump product is ideally suited for the mining, construction, rental, industrial, municipal, agriculture, sewage and environmental applications.
