Where pumping technology really matters
The essential contribution of vacuum assisted self priming pumps to flood protection will be highlighted by the activities of world-leading designer and manufacturer of centrifugal pumps and systems, SPP Pumps, at this year’s Flood Defence and Prevention Expo.
Billed as the world’s biggest flood prevention exhibition and conference, the event at ExCeL, London on 4th and 5th December, will draw together the latest cost-effective ways of preventing and managing floods.
As part of a packed programme of seminars and workshops, Duncan Jackson, Business Unit Manager for SPP’s Autoprime Division, will talk about diesel-driven, vacuum-assisted, self-priming pumps and show what they have to offer in a variety of flood situations.
In particular he will be introducing visitors to the new E-Series Autoprime pump and also giving a live demonstration of a pump in action by pumping water from, and back to, the dock water source.
Like the rest of the Autoprime range, the enhanced E-Series is versatile, portable and lightweight to allow rapid and easy deployment in any emergency. For extra versatility, this pump is also able, when needed, to handle liquids containing solids and sludge which would normally require suction lift. In addition, an optional single-vane open impeller is available to deal with raw sewage containing stringy or fibrous solids and semi-solids up to 100 mm in diameter.
The Autoprime range of pumps is designed for use by contractors, rental organisations, utility companies, municipalities, mine operators and others in a variety of applications including over-pumping, tank draining and cleaning, bypass, well pointing, dewatering and flood relief pumping.
As well as presenting on this subject, Duncan Jackson will bring the benefit of his 35 years’ experience in the pump industry to a live debate on flood response and rescue.
“We are delighted to have been given this opportunity to help customers find solutions for flooding problems and to understand what equipment and systems will work best in each set of circumstances,” says Duncan.
“As the Automprime E-Series shows, we are committed to developing and providing quality products to meet today’s growing needs. Our comprehensive range, backed by dedicated expertise and support, is there to deliver the right solution where it really matters.”
