According to Steve du Toit, rental development manager at Integrated Pump Rental. whereas the pumps themselves or pump components are commonly available in stainless-steel, the market has not but made one thing like this available.
“Our concentrate on specific customer necessities, built to order in our trendy workshop, has led us to develop a completely chrome steel answer – from the tank and skid to the lifting body and different parts,” says du Toit. “We have seen a particular interest in the market for this build design, as clients see the value in having this corrosion resistant materials in all elements of the pump set.”
He notes that the initial curiosity has come from the mining sector, where mine water being pumped is often acidic. However, he expects further curiosity from the chemical and course of industries where corrosive liquids are pumped and stored.

“The design is based on our ‘total solution’ method, the place we think about the entire application and its challenges,” he says. “While the upfront value of chrome steel is obviously larger, the worth gained by the shopper when it comes to longevity and reliability far outweigh this.”
Among the applications is open pit dewatering where there are low pH ranges within the water, as well as coastal applications the place salt water and air cause rapid rusting of delicate steel. Integrated Pump Rental has already efficiently positioned a stainless steel unit in a coastal software, where it is performing well.
“Different grades of chrome steel are used in the design, relying on which components have essentially the most contact with the acidic medium,” he says. “A range of supplies is therefore employed to swimsuit each utility, and to realize optimum efficiency at the best cost.”
This custom engineering is made attainable by the company’s vary of technical expertise and specialist expertise that resides in its people. This in-house experience includes draughting, fabrication and pump meeting, making use of coded welders and certified boilermakers. Depending on the application, the stainless-steel construct may be supplied on a road trailer or with a site trolley.
