FBP400 Features:

AllightSykes Sykes FBP400 Contractor Pump
The FBP400 has been designed for applications requiring extremely high flow rates with medium heads.

It is driven by a Caterpillar C-27 engine via a gearbox so the pump operating speed is very low.

It’s dual compressor priming system greatly reduces priming times required for larger pipes and long suction lengths.

The pumps ability to handle large solids up to 7”/ 178mm makes it ideal for use in municipal, mining and construction industries.

Term Life

Compressor Prime
Involves passing a jet of compressed air through a venturi-type nozzle to evacuate the pump casing and suction line. It makes sure priming is fast, positive and continuous - even under snore conditions. The priming system has no moving parts. This greatly reduces maintenance requirements.
Vacuum Prime
Features a vacuum priming chamber which dramatically reduces carry-over due to the stainless steel baffle deflector plates and pancake float. Ideal for wellpoint dewatering and long suction conditions.
