Submersible Dewatering Pumps

Submersible pumps are an effective, inexpensive solution for dewatering whether on an opencast mine or quarry site, in an underground mine, on a construction site or anywhere else that dewatering needs to be done. These encapsulated pumps can be completely submerged in liquid and are most frequently used to transport drainage water, excess groundwater or any other liquids with suspended solids.

At IPR, we offer leading submersible dewatering pump brands suitable for operation in a variety of tough environments and all are built to withstand the arduous operating conditions on these types of sites. The wide range of electrically driven submersible pumps available from IPR include portable mini-pumps through to large drainage pumps allowing us to cater for diverse applications including those found in industries such as manufacturing, food processing, agriculture, petrochemical, oil and gas, quarrying, construction and both surface and underground mining.

All submersible dewatering pumps available from IPR are covered by the OEM warranty.

Purchasing of a
Dewatering Pump Solutions

Purchasing dewatering pump equipment makes sense where you would like to have outright ownership of the pumps, and wish to reduce the total overall cost of the dewatering pump installation. Large capital equipment such as dewatering pumps build equity over time, especially if the equipment is well maintained. Pumping equipment with long lifespans are assets that will grow the value of your business.

Renting of a Dewatering Pump Solutions

Renting dewatering pump equipment offers several major advantages that can be beneficial. This option is particularly suited for applications with carrying dewatering needs or where only sporadic dewatering is required. The dewatering pump rental option also means that the skill and competent IPR team will hand all equipment maintenance ensuring the installation operates hassle free.
