IPS has expanded its services for water and wastewater process equipment. We now offer service, reconditioning, and replacement for pumps, power distribution equipment, and electric motor and generator services.
Our acquisitions and ongoing investment in personnel, training, and tooling make us well equipped to streamline your vendor management. We provide comprehensive testing, authorized warranty repair, engineering, and in-house remanufacturing for everything from transformers to driven equipment.
IPS technicians and engineers specialize in reconditioning and remanufacturing critical spares, legacy assets, and obsolete motors and pumps — with or without drawings. Our North American network lets us combine scale with local response to support your reliability and energy efficiency objectives.
Our field service technicians do as much work as possible on-site and during planned outages to minimize downtime and repair costs. IPS provides complete equipment evaluations for water and wastewater plants, with inspections, testing, condition assessment plans, and engineering recommendations.
IPS technicians provide electrical testing for AC motors and VFDs. These tests include using borescopes and other diagnostics:
Motors in water and wastewater treatment facilities typically run beyond their nameplate data. We can resolve some of the resulting issues on-site with laser alignment, rebalancing, and replacement of seals and bearings.
We have extensive experience with extending the life of legacy motors and pumps. Our trained, certified technicians also handle motor and pump removal and installation.
Our 2022 acquisition of TAW, Inc. raised IPS pump services to a new level. We now work on a wide range of pumps used in water and wastewater plants:
IPS technicians and engineers collaborate on multi-point inspections of all pumps and connected equipment. They conduct flow testing and vibration analysis and perform field alignment and trim balancing.
We use IR analysis to isolate electrical overloading, underloading, or connection problems. IR analysis reveals problems with bearings, couplings, pump seals, and gaskets.
We also use:
IPS on-site maintenance for water and wastewater process equipment includes:
IPS contracted maintenance services establish an operating baseline and improve reliability and efficiency.
Running a mix of old and new process equipment makes improving reliability and energy efficiency more challenging. IPS can help with complete repair and reconditioning services, plus design, reverse engineering, and remanufacturing.
We use OEM quality and performance as the baseline. Our pump overhaul and reconditioning services include:
New parts manufacturing
IPS provides quotes based on nameplate data, but we also offer design, reverse engineering, and remanufacturing for pumps. Most importantly, we offer the advantage of engineering for your application.
Price points don’t constrain our engineers, so they spend more time on design and specify higher-grade materials. IPS veteran machinists hold tighter tolerances on fit and finish, to overbuild and deliver increased operating reliability with unmatched lead times.
IPS works with legacy and obsolete assets but supports new equipment. We test motors manufactured overseas that arrive with bearing issues.
Left unresolved, these issues will cause oil leaks, reduced energy efficiency, and eventual premature failure. IPS repairs and modifies new equipment and provides turnkey installation, alignment, commissioning, and warranty compliance.
Our reputation as a trusted advisor means we can address the concerns of the OEM, the EPC firm, and municipality.
National Field Services, an IPS Company, provides complete power distribution services for water utilities. These services include:
National’s NETA-certified technicians and electrical engineers work on improving the safety and reliability of substations, switchgear, and custom control panels. They also provide short circuit, device, coordination, and arc flash studies.
IPS offers professional, documented storage of pumps, motors, and power distribution equipment for water and wastewater plants. Our North American network has over 750,000 square feet of strategic warehousing, with 24/7 shipping, installation, and commissioning.
We customize asset management for individual requirements, with supporting documentation of all required testing and maintenance.
IPS has master distribution agreements with key OEMs and local, regional, and national inventories. We also have a network of used and surplus equipment suppliers to reduce unplanned downtime and maintain critical spares.
When there are no commercial options, IPS offers complete distribution services. We design, manufacture, modify, assemble, and fabricate for specific customer needs and short lead times.
IPS has the service, engineering, remanufacturing, and distribution services that water and wastewater plants need for equipment reliability and process uptime. We can provide turnkey solutions or work alongside your OEMs and other service partners.
