The Sykes Silt Away provides clients with effective separation of suspended solids and silt from water pumped through ground sources. Typically, these are used on construction sites or quarries that discharge into water courses or surface drainage systems. Water passes through the Silt Away via a Lamella plate box which splits solids contained within the fluid itself, allowing them to be dropped into the discharge chamber below. Use of these tanks allows filtered water to be discharged directly into rivers, canals and surface drains.
Sykes offer a range of settlement tanks to be used on the discharge side of any pump set. These tanks are specially designed to prevent silt and fines being discharged into the water course or drains. Each tank is provided with a series of weir plates, Bauer quick release couplings, lifting eyes and drain plugs.
Drip trays can be provided with most pumps to avoid potential environmental pollution due to fuel spillage, or oil spillage when refuelling or maintaining pumps. Even if the pump has a built in drip tray an additional full length tray can give extra protection. These are especially beneficial when working close to waterways or where there is a risk of water pollution.
The safe transportation and storage of fuel, especially in environmentally sensitive areas, is an increasing concern for all. Sykes offers a purpose built range of fully bunded fuel tanks for hire with a capacity range from 1000 to 3000 litres. Fully compliant and tested to ADR and UN requirements for IBC, all manufactured under ISO 9001: 2000 requirements.
