WP 150/200

wp150/200The Sykes AmeriPumps WP 150/200 automatic priming centrifugal pump is the world standard for well-point dewatering, straight dewatering and sewer by pass.

Excelling in well-point dewatering, as well as straight dewatering and sewer by pass, the WP 150/200 performs the work of all three. The Sykes Univac vacuum system allows the WP 150/200 to prime and re-prime automatically; to operate with the suction intake intermittently exposed to atmosphere; and to run dry for indefinite periods of time without harm to the pump. The capacities to handle solids up to 3, maximum flows of 1700 gpm, and up to 170 ft of dynamic head, makes the WP 150/200 the most versatile pump available. Sound attenuation is standard with the WP 150/200.
