Equipment for Hire at Octopus Electronics

In today’s economic environment it is not always viable to make an outright purchase of high-tech equipment, however this equipment should be used to tackle all situations. 

Hiring Equipment can give start-ups or new contractors a crucial competitive advantage, support you during busy periods, offering you an increased work scope with the added advantage of being able to expand service capabilities allowing contractors to jump into new markets and bid for projects with minimal cost-of-entry.

However, with opportunities to avoid capital expenditure and receive first-rate maintenance, the benefits of short or long-term rental as part of an ongoing contingency plan, or even as a try-before-you-buy option, are clear. If you need a speedy, reliable and customer-focused partner where your equipment arrives fully operational and ready to go every time then Octopus Electronics is that partner.

Vetter Bags, Plugs & Stoppers

Octopus Electronics Vetter Hire for existing vetter clients only.

Vetter Pipe Sealing bags are the optimum solution when quick and reliable sealing of drainage is required. A big advantage of the sealing bags is their freely selectable contact pressure on the pipe wall: from 0.5 bar to 2.5 bar (7.25 psi – 36.25 psi).

The areas of operation are, among others: sealing off sewer pipelines during repair or maintenance work avoiding sewage backflow at the source location during pipe bursts, flooding, sewer inspection, sewer cleaning, repair and maintenance work.

Due to the numerous application possibilities, sealing bags are used in different branches of industry, such as road and sewer construction and civil engineering.
