Pump specialist and local Sykes distributor Integrated Pump Rental is breaking new floor for patrons in corrosive environments, providing a pump resolution that’s constructed entirely from chrome steel.
According to Steve du Toit, rental development supervisor at Integrated Pump Rental. whereas the pumps themselves or pump elements are generally available in stainless steel, the market has not but made something like this readily available.
“Our concentrate on particular customer requirements, built to order in our fashionable workshop, has led us to develop a fully chrome steel solution – from the tank and skid to the lifting frame and different parts,” says du Toit. “We have seen a particular curiosity in the market for this build design, as customers see the value in having this corrosion resistant material in all features of the pump set.”
He notes that the preliminary curiosity has come from the mining sector, the place mine water being pumped is usually acidic. However, he expects additional interest from the chemical and process industries the place corrosive liquids are pumped and saved.

“The design is based on our ‘total solution’ strategy, where we contemplate the whole application and its challenges,” he says. “While the upfront price of chrome steel is clearly larger, the value gained by the client by way of longevity and reliability far outweigh this.”
Among the purposes is open pit dewatering the place there are low pH levels within the water, in addition to coastal functions where salt water and air cause rapid rusting of delicate steel. Integrated Pump Rental has already efficiently placed a stainless steel unit in a coastal software, the place it is performing nicely.
“Different grades of stainless steel are used within the design, relying on which elements have essentially the most contact with the acidic medium,” he says. “A vary of supplies is therefore employed to go nicely with every software, and to realize optimal efficiency on the most competitive value.”
This customized engineering is made attainable by the company’s range of technical abilities and specialist experience that resides in its individuals. This in-house expertise includes draughting, fabrication and pump meeting, making use of coded welders and qualified boilermakers. Depending on the application, the chrome steel build can be supplied on a road trailer or with a site trolley.
