SYKES PUMPS PROVIDES CUSTOMISED SOLUTION FOR HINCKLEY POINT C WATER MANAGEMENT REQUIREMENTS
Pump specialist, Sykes Pumps, is to install the latest pair of custom-modified pumps sold to EDF Energy’s Hinkley Point C site as part of the water management strategy.
Sykes Pumps has been involved with the Hinkley Point C site for the past four years and has already hired a range of submersible, diesel and electric pumps for various elements of the development programme, including the sale of twelve custom-built electric surface mounted pumps for Water Management Zones (WMZ) 1-6. The latest installation in the WMZ roll out is for WMZ 4 which will involve installation of two 22kW pumps to work in conjunction with a silt separation process.
DOOR CLOSER’s FIRE CREDENTIALS ENHANCED
Samuel Heath’s commitment to ensuring that its Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers provide the ultimate assurance in quality and performance has been further underlined with the successful completion of additional full-sized fire testing on both timber and steel fire doors at renowned testing laboratory, Exova Warrington Fire.
30-minute testing in accordance with BS EN 1634-1 was undertaken on a timber fire door constructed with a Halspan core to replace Powermatic’s current small-scale indicative testing for the BS 476 assessment.
The door set easily achieved the 30-minute test requirements, continuing until final failure occurred at 42 minutes. Powermatic was actually shown to hold the door in place after the hinge/timber joint failure.
