Selwood's S150M Electric skid model and the S150M in the Super Silent canopy

Selwood will be showcasing new high-performance solids handling pumps that are ideal for quarrying and construction applications at the forthcoming Hillhead 2018.

The S150M is a new medium head pump suitable for multiple uses, including long distance water transfer and dewatering for sites and quarries. Featuring Selwood’s trademark reliability and proven Selprime automatic self-priming technology, the diesel-driven model complements Selwood’s existing S range of solids handling pumps.

Selwood will be exhibiting a working rental unit at the Hillhead exhibition, which will take place in Buxton from June 26 to 28. As well as the diesel model on display, the team will also be introducing the variant version, the S150M Electric, which is now available for rental and sale.

The S150M Electric features all the high-performance features of the S150M with the added benefit of a highly-efficient, eco-friendly 30KW IE3 electric motor. Both meet a specific demand in the construction and quarrying market for a versatile medium head pump.

Selwood pump specialists will be exhibiting at Stand V16 at Hillhead, which is held in a limestone quarry in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside and brings together the world’s leading professionals across the quarrying, construction and recycling sectors. The team will also be displaying other models from their world-leading range, including high-head H pumps, high-volume drainer D pumps, and the Seldredge, all of which are renowned for their efficiency in the quarrying and mining industry.

Chris Garrett, Selwood CEO, said: “We are delighted to introduce the diesel and electric models of the S150M which come as key additions to our expanding solids handling range.

“We designed the S150M in response to demand from customers and distributors for a versatile medium head pump. We look forward to showcasing the outstanding features of our world-leading pumps at Hillhead 2018.”

The S150M is available in Selwood’s world-leading Super Silent canopies, as skid or as pump end only. The S150M Electric currently comes as skid, but will soon be available in the Super Silent canopy. As always, service support comes from the company’s extensive branch network in the UK and its strategic partners worldwide.
