Home Engineering Pumps, Valves, Hydraulics, Pneumatics A standout pump solution for heavy-duty dewatering

DEMAND for the heavy-duty Grindex Mega pump in dewatering applications continues across the Southern African market, particularly in across-border countries like Zambia, and the DRC. Key accounts manager at Integrated Pump Technology, Justin Bawden, says that as the official Grindex pump distributor for the region, the company has focussed on providing this quality product underpinned by a high level of support.

“The robust Grindex Mega pump is popularly known as the ‘workhorse’ of pump dewatering,” he says, “and continues to make a mark with its high reliability, durability and the ability to handle abrasive particles with unprecedented ease.”

The pump’s robust cast iron construction was engineered specifically for rigorous applications such as those found in the mining sector, and elsewhere. He points to the fact that the pump is also capable of handling corrosive liquids such as salt water, or dewater in environments where the pH level ranges between 6 and 13. With zinc anodes available for additional protection, this pump provides an unmatched combination of dependability and longevity.

Available in two distinct configurations – the Grindex Mega N for standard head applications and the Grindex Mega H for high head pumping requirements, such as deep excavations found in open pit operations and underground mines – the Grindex Mega pump is as versatile as it is robust.

“One of the Mega pump’s standout features is its high flow rate – a remarkable 150 litres per second at a maximum head of 200 metres. It represents a significant step forward in pumping large volumes of dirty water, making it the go-to solution for heavy-duty dewatering tasks,” Bawden says.

Furthermore, the Grindex Mega pump has been designed for ease of use, from installation to operation. The plug-and-play setup simplifies the process, allowing users to get it up and running without the need for extensive technical expertise.

This powerhouse dewatering pump is available through Integrated Pump Technology’s strategically positioned network of distributors, guaranteeing fast and efficient service. Dedicated to providing dependable pump solutions, the company is committed to upholding the highest standards of product quality, service and customer satisfaction.
