While there is typically a case for buying dewatering pumps and associated tools outright, renting presents so many benefits that it should always 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 strong shift towards the rental mannequin. “We began up just seven years in the past and, since then, we’ve needed to constantly add pumps to our fleet to fulfill ever growing demand from a variety of industries, most especially mining and construction,” he states.
“We now have greater than 200 pumps in our rental fleet, capable of deal with nearly any pumping activity. Our line-up contains submersible drainage and dewatering pumps, slurry and sludge pumps and diesel-driven pumps. We additionally 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 kind of equipment that’s required – may be appreciable. “Many firms – notably if they are start-ups or are experiencing robust trading circumstances – simply can not afford to make this type of monetary commitment,” he says. “If that is the case, rental is the best resolution.”
เกจวัดแรงดันคือ points out that purchasing doesn’t make enterprise sense if the equipment required is only used on an intermittent foundation. “If you’re going to purchase pumps, for instance, then you should get the maximum utilisation out of them. If you only have an occasional want for pumping, then I would strongly recommend renting. It is madness to buy expensive equipment and then leave it standing for long periods.”
Ownership additionally brings with it the problems of upkeep. “Pumps must be maintained and this normally signifies that individuals with the required competence need to be completely employed to undertake this activity,” he says. “When you lease from IPR, we provide this service. Our expert and skilled technicians undertake all servicing and upkeep on website on a 24/7 basis. We additionally, after all, make positive that machines are in tip-top situation earlier than being despatched out to prospects.”
When it involves pumping, there is no such factor as ‘one dimension fits all’ and Vine says that is another compelling cause to lease rather than buy. “IPR can draw from its extraordinarily big selection of pumps and other gear to provide options that are precisely tailored to the customer’s wants. By contrast, we often notice that corporations that elect to purchase their own tools find yourself using pumps which are completely unsuited to the duty at hand. They are using them because that is all they have out there.”
By renting from IPR, prospects also get the good factor about the latest expertise. “Obviously, not every unit in our fleet would be the very latest model however, typically, our inventory consists of recent or comparatively new machines providing – amongst different things – excellent gasoline effectivity,” says Vine. “Customers can relaxation assured that we will by no means provide out-of-date tools that’s no longer match for objective.”
While rental is the spine of IPR’s enterprise, the company additionally sells pumps and other tools. It is the only agent in southern Africa for the well-established Atlas Copco diesel-driven pump sets as nicely as the Atlas Copco vary of submersible pumps.
As Vine feedback, “We’re definitely not saying that customers ought to all the time rent. Under the proper circumstances, direct possession of assets similar to pumps can be the best route to comply with. We recognise this, which is why we are geared to either hire or sell.”
IPR is predicated in fashionable premises in Jet Park, Johannesburg, where it has a well-equipped engineering workshop which permits it to supply absolutely customised pumping and dredging solutions to ISO 9001 requirements.
