SP 300X

SP300XThe Sykes AmeriPumps SP 300X automatic priming centrifugal pump is the world standard for high volume pumping.

Excelling in high suction lift sewer by-pass and straight dewatering, the Sykes SP 300X maintains unmatched performance in its class. The SP 300X uses a screw type impeller to give superior head performance, suction lift, head pressure; all with the ability to handle up to four inch solids. With performances that give maximum flows of over 7000 gpm and head pressure up to 260 ft, the SP 300X sets the bar for performance of 12″ pumps.
