Lee Vine, MD of Integrated Pump Rental, says the company has fast established a reputation for identifying areas in process plants where an effective alternative solution is needed to cope with the day-to-day activities such as slurry blasting.

“It is sometimes in the most obvious places that there is a need for more reliable equipment that is capable of withstanding the rigours of daily use,” Vine says.

The Slurry Blaster is a hydro mining equipment solution which offers optimum performance coupled with reliability. Typical applications include plant floors and sumps, drainage areas, tailings dams, process water dams and other difficult to reach areas.

“Not all applications are the same and for this reason, we have made the Slurry Blaster available in three main configurations but it can be modified to suit individual customer applications, should this be necessary,” Vine says.

The Slurry Blaster can be provided on a pontoon for use on ponds and dams, it can be trailer mounted or can be a traditional manual set up.

“The decision as to which configuration to use is based on the application at hand and our technical team has the necessary competency to assess the situation and propose the appropriate option to the customer,” Vine says.

Each installation of the Slurry Blaster comes standard with a 37 kW feed pump with float, a 22 kW slurry pump for the removal of the slurry, a 200 m heavy duty layflat hose and an electric control panel.

The Slurry Blaster units are available for medium or long term rental, outright purchase and on a full turnkey project basis.

In addition to identifying solutions for problems areas in a plant or mine, Integrated Pump Rental operates an extensive pump rental fleet which includes Grindex submersible drainage and dewatering pumps, diesel driven pumps and accessories.

Value added services such as dam cleaning and pontoons, pump flotation modules and pipe floats are available. All products used by Integrated Pump Rental are ISO 9001 certified.

Vine says that full technical advice on the most suitable pump for specific applications is provided by its experienced team.

Integrated Pump Rental’s service level agreement (SLA) includes the provision of a full maintenance service. This entails regular inspections of pumps before and during contracts to ensure that uptime is emphasised. Routine testing and on-going maintenance of the pump fleet by Integrated Pump Rental’s experienced team of technicians provides customers with the reassurance that pump availability remains high.
