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.
Known as the workhorse of pump dewatering, the Grindex Mega pump is ideal for pumping large quantities of dirty water and is available in two configurations – the Mega N for normal head applications and the Mega H for high head applications. Integrated Pump Technology is the official Grindex pump distributor for southern Africa.
Participation at Electra Mining Africa 2022 will serve to underpin Integrated Pump Technology’s drive to increase its footprint in Africa. According to general manager, Jordan Marsh in the less than 10 years since the company secured the Grindex pump distributorship for southern Africa it has already significantly increased the product’s installed footprint in South Africa and made good inroads in southern Africa.
Supported by its full engineering capability, Integrated Pump Technology can design and deliver the pump solution to suit every customer’s challenge. In any application, there will be a range of considerations to optimise performance, argues general manager Jordan Marsh. It is no longer sufficient just to offer ‘a pump in a box’.
Revamping its distributorship base in recent years has given submersible pump specialist Integrated Pump Technology a solid foundation to support customers around sub-Saharan Africa. A key focus has been on mining areas, and the expansion has included new distributors in a number of southern African countries.
The ideal drainage pump is one that performs reliably in the toughest of conditions, so that operators do not need to waste time checking constantly on its performance. The Grindex range from Integrated Pump Technology offers just this, and more.
Integrated Pump Technology reports an unprecedented demand for Grindex stainless steel pumps from customers on the Zambian and DRC Copperbelt. Grindex stainless steel pumps which are engineered to operate reliably in contaminated water and handle corrosive slurries with abrasive solids.
Even the best quality pumps need to be supported with a full range of aftermarket services, according to Jordan Marsh, sales manager at Integrated Pump Technology. The company’s full-service offering includes a comprehensive stock of all critical spares across the range, with a service centre and experienced staff to maintain units to OEM standards
