Integrated Pump Technology has secured a pivotal order for three Faggiolati stainless steel pumps at a major Mpumalanga coal fire power station. Key to success was the strategic material selection promising reliable performance in this harsh environment.
The footprint of Grindex submersible pumps is growing rapidly in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) following Integrated Pump Technology’s recent appointment of Congo Pump Solutions as its local distributor. There has already been enthusiastic uptake from a number of DRC mines, based on the pumps’ robust features, quick delivery times and technical backup.
Demand for the heavy-duty Grindex Mega pump in dewatering applications continues across the Southern African market, particularly in across-border countries like Zambia, and the DRC. This robust pump continues to make a mark with its high reliability and durability.
Pushing into export markets in Southern Africa has been a key focus for local Grindex distributor Integrated Pump Technology – and this is now paying off. General manager Jordan Marsh says that 2023 is turning into an exciting year, with substantial orders now being secured in mining countries like the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia.
Keeping pace with its growth across the Southern African Development Community (SADC), official Grindex pump distributor Integrated Pump Technology is ensuring that its product support remains world class. This means growing its distributor base and empowering local agents with skills and stockholding to respond quickly to customer needs.
Dewatering pumps are critical infrastructure on mines and construction sites. When they stop performing, flooding can bring operations to a costly halt. Avoiding this risk is all about selecting the right pump for the application, highlights Justin Bawden of Integrated Pump Technology.
So successful has been Integrated Pump Technology’s market penetration into Africa that its distribution area for Grindex pumps has been expanded. This follows the renewal of its distribution agreement for a further five years by leading global pump OEM, Grindex. The countries added to its jurisdiction now include Angola, Gabon, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
Pumping water, sludge and slurry from mines, quarries and construction sites is a vital part of keeping operations streamlined. In many cases, submersible pumps are the equipment of choice for this function. They are robust, mobile and can handle suspended solids and chemical abrasion. The trick, though, is to select carefully from the wide range of options to suit the specific application. Integrated Pump Technology explains how.
With the rainy season on the way in much of southern Africa, Integrated Pump Technology is urging pump users to check that their equipment is still up to the task. Mines in particular face the risk of disruption if pits or shafts are not dewatered quickly enough. The company even conducts site assessments to ensure that the right capacity is in place and is fully serviceable.
With Zambian mines among the world’s wettest, this region has always been well serviced by submersible dewatering pump specialist Integrated Pump Technology. This support has taken another leap forward with local company IES becoming its exclusive distributor earlier this year. With its experienced staff and accredited service centre, IES offers localised sales and servicing of the Grindex pump range in Zambia.
