Motor-driven applications like pumping and air handling often run at constant speed even when not required. Adding variable speed drives has many benefits, however, they can cause premature motor failure if not properly groundedSponsored
Integrated Pump Rental, an official AllightSykes distributor located in South Africa, recently supplied Qty. 8 Sykes CP 150 self-priming diesel driven pumps to a coal mining operation. The Sykes CP 150 self-priming diesel driven pump, which offers a maximum head of 60 metres and a flow rate of 172 litres per second, is capable of handling solids with a particle size of up to 77 mm.
Just one of these dewatering pumps would be capable of draining the London 2012 Olympic Swimming Pool in about 4 hours! The 8 pumps were trailer-mounted to enable mine personnel to move the units wherever they are needed on the mining site.
