The IPS Custom Equipment (CE) group has almost sixty years of experience in engineering and manufacturing customized solutions for aggregate and mining operations.
All CE equipment is designed and ruggedized for harsh environments.
This sled is the basis of almost all Custom Equipment solutions for control, power, and power distribution. It’s designed to transport critical infrastructure equipment to the work site, with heavy equipment dragging it through mud and over rough terrain.
We build this equipment with stainless steel, aluminum, or galvanized steel to minimize corrosion and extend service life.
Custom Equipment engineers and manufactures VFD control sleds for mission-critical control and reliability. These sleds are enclosed in environmentally isolated, climate-controlled equipment structures, and skid-mounted with isolation, bypass, and/or auxiliary equipment.
These are ruggedized, durable controllers, built to specification and engineered for a long service life. We customize for your application, developing multiple design concepts for review.
Available features include:
Custom Equipment engineers and manufactures motor/diesel-drive pump combination units for years of service in harsh aggregate and mining environments. CE customizes these pump sleds for matrix slurry and dredge-duty applications.
We also offer optional control systems ready for onboard or remote mounting.
CE pump control sleds pump or convey raw materials in mines. The pumps produce up to 15 kV and generate 5,000+ HP.
We offer a range of options, including full voltage, reduced voltage, and soft-start units.
IPS customizes power distribution sleds for specific environments and applications. We engineer and manufacture with multiple options, including:
Our operator-housed matrix slurry stations include operator-controlled hydraulic guns for use in open-pit mining. Slurry production for pumping to processing plants is a demanding application — our units typically provide controls for the entire matrix line.
We also engineer and manufacture heavy-duty steel sled-mounted pit gun cars for phosphate mining. These cars feature programmable operation, for learned mode and hands-free control, with multiple configuration and option packages.
IPS offers additional capabilities that complement our Custom Equipment division. We provide single-source capabilities for electric motors & generators, rotating equipment, and power distribution used in mining and reclamation.
We bundle customized equipment with installation and commissioning, then provide ongoing service, repair, and replacement.
