Sykes' XH250 onsite

Dewatering is a key responsibility of mine and quarry owners and operators, and keeping up with changing requirements means using the latest in dewatering technology. 

Sykes Group has announced the launch of its latest innovation: the Sykes/Primax XH250. A leading name in the realm of dewatering pump solutions and aiming to revolutionise dewatering operations, Sykes Group has developed the XH250 with the distinct requirements of the mining and quarry industries in mind.

The XH250 complements Sykes’ existing range of Extra High Head pumps and boasts a remarkable head capability of 200 l/sec at 220m or 250 l/sec at 200m.
