Clever Pumpset Customization
AllightPrimax Dubai production, specialists in pumpset customization, were recently called on to deliver a custom build Extra High Head Mining Pump suitable for an extremely cold mining region. AllightPrimax were able to quickly and effectively respond with a pump unit design that met and exceeded customer expectations in regards to design, manufacture, price and delivery.
The clever part of the design was to fit Primax XH150-560mm Pump and Caterpillar C13 engine pump unit into a modified shipping container. This pump and engine combination can reach maximum head (pressure) of 185m (606ft) and flows up to 150L/sec (540m3/hr, 2,376USGPM).
The Primax range of pumps are heavy duty automatic self-single stage end suction pumps designed, manufactured and tested in accordance with ISO 9001 Quality System and ISO 9906 Rotodynamic Pumps Hydraulic performance acceptance test Grades 2 to meet the harshest of environments.
- Primax XH150-560mm Pump with Caterpillar C13 engine mounted inside 20’ Standard ISO container.
- 50mm Glass wool on the walls and covered by perforated GI sheet to keep the heat inside during winter.
- This design can be used also as a Soundproof Container but just changing the inlet and outlet louvers at both ends.

AllightSykes-Primax emerged following the acquisition of Sykes in November 2010 by Allight Holdings Pty Ltd. The pump specialist sits comfortably alongside our other world class brands..
The Sykes brand (which is known as Primax in some world markets) has been a major force in world pump markets for over 40 years. Much of its success has stemmed from its priming systems which improve fluid handling efficiencies and greatly reduce maintenance requirements. A ‘snore’ facility built into its ground-breaking auto-priming pumps means they can run dry without damage for extended periods.
Manufacturing bases in New South Wales and Dubai have enabled Sykes to systematically add to their domestic market domination via established distribution networks across a number of key global markets including South Africa, the Middle East, Indonesia, and the Americas.
