While there’s typically a case for buying dewatering pumps and associated equipment outright, renting offers so many benefits that it ought to 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 robust shift in the path of the rental model. “We started up just seven years ago and, since then, we’ve had to continuously add pumps to our fleet to meet ever rising demand from a spread of industries, most particularly mining and construction,” he states.
“We now have greater than 200 pumps in our rental fleet, able to deal with virtually any pumping process. Our line-up contains submersible drainage and dewatering pumps, slurry and sludge pumps and diesel-driven pumps. We also offer dredging methods and hydro mining solutions.”

Vine believes that one of the prime advantages of renting is that it eliminates the necessity for upfront capital expenditure, which – relying on the sort of equipment that’s required – can be considerable. “Many corporations – significantly if they are start-ups or are experiencing powerful trading situations – merely can not afford to make this type of financial commitment,” he says. “If that is the case, rental is the perfect answer.”

He factors out that buying doesn’t make enterprise sense if the gear required is just used on an intermittent foundation. “If you’re going to purchase pumps, for example, then you have to get the utmost utilisation out of them. If you solely have an occasional need for pumping, then I would strongly advocate renting. It is insanity to buy costly tools after which go away it standing for lengthy intervals.”

Ownership also brings with it the issues of upkeep. “Pumps need to be maintained and this usually signifies that people with the required competence need to be permanently employed to undertake this task,” he says. “When you lease from IPR, we offer this service. Our skilled and experienced technicians undertake all servicing and maintenance on web site on a 24/7 foundation. We also, in fact, ensure that machines are in tip-top condition earlier than being sent out to clients.”

When it comes to pumping, there is not a such thing as ‘one size fits all’ and Vine says that is one other compelling reason to lease rather than purchase. “IPR can draw from its extraordinarily wide selection of pumps and other tools to offer options which are exactly tailor-made to the customer’s wants. By distinction, we regularly discover that firms that elect to purchase their own equipment find yourself using pumps which would possibly be totally unsuited to the duty at hand. They are utilizing them as a end result of that’s all they’ve out there.”

By renting from IPR, clients additionally get the profit of the most recent technology. “Obviously, not every unit in our fleet would be the very newest model but, generally, our stock consists of recent or comparatively new machines providing – amongst different things – excellent fuel efficiency,” says Vine. “Customers can relaxation assured that we will never supply out-of-date equipment that’s not match for function.”

While ไดอะแฟรม is the backbone of IPR’s business, the company also sells pumps and different equipment. It is the only real agent in southern Africa for the well-established Atlas Copco diesel-driven pump units in addition to the Atlas Copco vary of submersible pumps.
As Vine comments, “We’re certainly not saying that customers should all the time lease. Under the best circumstances, direct possession of belongings similar to pumps may be one of the best path to comply with. We recognise this, which is why we’re geared to either rent or sell.”

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