Pumps rental unit cleans up KZN in the wake of a catastrophe

In the wake of the flooding and landslides that occurred in KwaZulu-Natal in April and May 2022, 448 people had been left dead and more than 40 000 displaced, with injury to roads, colleges, water infrastructure and businesses.
On 18 April, President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a nationwide state of catastrophe. As repairs obtained underway, one of the first issues many flooded companies faced was to get rid of the water and debris of their factories or warehouse premises. The Werner Pumps rental unit, a combination jetting and vacuum truck, was put to good use to assist with the clean-up operations.
“We rented our unit to two corporations for a number of weeks at a time to assist them in servicing their clients’ in Durban and the encompassing areas after the horrific flooding,” says Sebastian Werner, Managing Director at Werner Pumps. “It’s the primary time that the unit has been used for disaster recovery efforts after flooding. It was good to have the power to assist ultimately by sending the mix truck from our head offices in Springs all the way down to our KwaZulu-Natal shoppers to help. It should have carried out an excellent job because one of many companies has now ordered one from us to help with their ongoing air pollution management and industrial clean-up operations.”
The rental unit is a combination truck that offers state-of-the-art hydraulically operated jetting and vacuum functionality. It’s available by way of Werner Water Recycling, the rental division (founded in 2013) of Werner Pumps, the main manufacturer of high-pressure jetting equipment in South Africa.
Known as the Impi Unit, it offers a tilting 12.500 litre, 304 stainless-steel tank, with a hydraulically-driven high-pressure pump capacity of 295L/Min at 135bar, and a vacuum pump with 1700 m3/hr suction capability. The high-pressure pump is fitted with a pneumatically operated regulating valve, making infinite pressure adjustment possible, thus rising the safety of the operator during use.
“It’ pressure gauge ไฮ ด รอ ลิ ค for every little thing from sewer and stormwater cleansing and maintenance, to sludge and slurry removal, separator cleansing, contaminated liquid restoration, recovering solids, and cleaning surfaces,” says Werner. “In the wake of a catastrophe, it can be used to scrub up standing water or to scrub smoke-damaged services. We’ve found there’s demand for the unit from municipalities and contractors to bridge a niche when they’re waiting on a unit, or for price range to become available, and for people who want it for a particular time-bound application.”
Ultimately, Werner says, the corporate want to build up its rental fleet to service the growing demand. “When something occurs and someone urgently needs a truck, as was the case with the flooding, we want to have the ability to send them one instantly,” he says. “Our purpose has at all times to be a one-stop shop, and to ensure our clients are in a position hold operating always, so we’re discovering ways to assist them do that.”
