SYKES Group will display an auto-prime pump on Stand R122 at AIMEX 2007. The HH220i auto-prime pump offers discharge heads to 138m and flows of up to 282l/second, with stainless steel internals as standard. It is available in diesel or electric drive and has been designed to suit the rigours of the demanding mining industry. The Himax range are true self-priming pumps and do not require manual priming of the suction line, or filling of a priming tank to begin its normal operation. They are said to have a high-head pumping ability.
The pump can run dry for extended periods due to the oil bath mechanical seal assembly which allows priming with long suction hoses and suction lifts of up to 9m.
As fluid levels fluctuate, the pump will “snore” until the time liquid is available for the pump to fully reprime itself automatically.
