While there is sometimes a case for buying dewatering pumps and related tools outright, renting presents so many benefits that it should all the time be given shut consideration. This is the view of Lee Vine, managing director of dewatering and dredge pump rental specialist IPR.
He says that IPR is seeing a powerful shift in direction of the rental mannequin. “We started up simply seven years in the past and, since then, we’ve had to repeatedly add pumps to our fleet to satisfy ever rising demand from a range of industries, most particularly mining and construction,” he states.
“We now have greater than 200 pumps in our rental fleet, able to deal with nearly any pumping task. Our line-up consists of submersible drainage and dewatering pumps, slurry and sludge pumps and diesel-driven pumps. We additionally offer dredging systems and hydro mining options.”

Vine believes that one of the prime benefits of renting is that it eliminates the need for upfront capital expenditure, which – depending on the kind of tools that’s required – could be appreciable. “Many companies – significantly if they are start-ups or are experiencing powerful trading conditions – simply can’t afford to make this sort of monetary dedication,” he says. “If that is the case, rental is the best answer.”

เกจวัดแรงดันเครื่องกรองน้ำ points out that buying does not make enterprise sense if the equipment required is simply used on an intermittent foundation. “If you’re going to buy pumps, for example, then you need to get the maximum utilisation out of them. If you solely have an occasional want for pumping, then I would strongly suggest renting. It is madness to purchase costly gear after which leave it standing for lengthy periods.”

Ownership also brings with it the issues of maintenance. “Pumps have to be maintained and this normally signifies that folks with the required competence have to be permanently employed to undertake this process,” he says. “When you rent from IPR, we offer this service. Our expert and skilled technicians undertake all servicing and maintenance on website on a 24/7 basis. We also, in fact, make positive that machines are in tip-top situation earlier than being despatched out to clients.”

When it comes to pumping, there is no such factor as ‘one measurement suits all’ and Vine says this is one other compelling purpose to rent quite than purchase. “IPR can draw from its extraordinarily wide range of pumps and other equipment to offer solutions which might be exactly tailor-made to the customer’s wants. By contrast, we often discover that companies that elect to buy their very own equipment find yourself utilizing pumps that are completely unsuited to the duty at hand. They are utilizing them as a result of that is all they have obtainable.”

By renting from IPR, prospects additionally get the benefit of the latest know-how. “Obviously, not each unit in our fleet will be the very latest mannequin but, typically, our stock consists of recent or relatively new machines providing – amongst other things – excellent gas effectivity,” says Vine. “Customers can relaxation assured that we will by no means provide out-of-date tools that’s now not fit for function.”

While rental is the spine of IPR’s business, the corporate also sells pumps and other equipment. It is the sole agent in southern Africa for the well-established Atlas Copco diesel-driven pump sets in addition to the Atlas Copco range of submersible pumps.
As Vine comments, “We’re certainly not saying that clients should at all times rent. Under the proper circumstances, direct possession of property such as pumps may be the most effective path to follow. We recognise this, which is why we’re geared to either lease or promote.”

IPR relies in trendy premises in Jet Park, Johannesburg, where it has a well-equipped engineering workshop which allows it to offer totally customised pumping and dredging solutions to ISO 9001 requirements.
