Aska Sykes Keeps Hot Water Running for Midlands Hotel


When a popular midlands hotel was having issues with their hot water supply on a mid week afternoon, they called Aska Sykes to provide a suitable solution to get their hot water up and running again before their guests would be showering the next morning.

The hotels own boiler had suffered a failure meaning that there was no hot water for over 100 guest rooms and leisure facilities.

Shortly after the hotels maintenance staff made contact with Aska Sykes, our staff were able to confirm that we had a 300KW Temporary Boiler available and that we could have the unit delivered that evening. We were also able to have an engineer on site to assist the facilities staff with the installation.

The 300KW boiler was installed that evening, and the hotels hot water supply was restored in time for guests to have their morning showers.

New Sykes Silt Away

Silt away

Aska Sykes have added the new Silt Away unit to our hire fleet, which can be used in conjunction with our range of 6” (150mm) pumps. The product has been specifically designed to separate suspended solids and sediment from water pumped from various ground sources, including construction sites, rivers and drains.

Pumped water passes through the Silt Away filters via a Lamella platebox, allowing solids contained in water to drop into a discharge chamber below. This compartment can be easily emptied at ground level without the unit being decommissioned, making them perfect for applications were continuous operation is essential.
