Nothing beats a fully cast stainless steel pump for resilience and reliability when faced with a corrosive environment, contaminated water and abrasive solids. “A protective coating on your standard submersible drainage and sludge pump will only protect your pump until the first scratch,” warns Integrated Pump Technology managing director Colin Adams. “After that, acidity and abrasion can destroy standard pumps in a matter of weeks or even days.” 

Increasing pressure to lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) has seen many mining operations review their water management strategies. Integrated Pump Rental reports that this has led to increased enquiries about its locally manufactured solutions that mitigate the challenges of silted process water ponds.

The food and beverage industries remain important contributors to the manufacturing and fastmoving consumer goods (FMCG) sectors, as well as the local economy.
