(PRWEB UK) 22 March 2012
Sykes Pumps, the nationwide pump hire specialist, has today unveiled its new energy efficient, 6" pump unit, suitably named the Sykes Enviropump. The Enviropump’s green acoustic cabinet, houses a Lister engine that runs on 100% bio-diesel (B100) - fuel that is made from all-natural renewable sources, such as vegetable oils. This latest development from Sykes Pumps is part of the company’s on-going commitment to developing and investing in the most environmentally friendly products available.
Low operating volumes
The Enviropump model is fully bunded and also benefits from an ultra quiet operating volume, with typical noise levels being 65 Dba at 7metres, so it can be operated day or night without any concerns about noise pollution. The fully filtered vacuum prime system ensures there is zero discharge, and the unit is also fitted with biodegradable oils.
Fitted with the latest technology engine protection systems and performance controllers, this new generation of super-efficient, environmentally friendly pumps is expected to appeal to water companies and Government agencies alike, who have robust environmental policies and are keen to be early adopters of such technology in order to keep their carbon footprints to a minimum. The green Enviropump will also appeal to the construction, industrial and process sectors that are looking to progress their own green credentials and be at the forefront of any technical innovations advantages that are available today.
