Our experts have the technical knowledge and resources to quickly and accurately diagnose problems and find the cause of failures. We use powerful software and computing hardware to provide rapid answers to complex problems involving stress analysis, fluid flows, particle dynamics (discrete element modelling), heat transfer, structural and drive dynamics and control systems. In addition, we have the practical experience and customer focus to understand the individual factors that may contribute to problems or accidents during material handling.
From design to operation, our experts have specialist knowledge of all aspects of materials handling at mines and ports. This means we are ideally positioned to provide machinery operators with advice on assessment, management and reduction of risk. As experts in operating machine analysis, design adequacy assessment, machinery and structure inspection and condition monitoring we can help you measure, monitor and mitigate all the risks associated with bulk handling machinery.
Our experience in the operation, repair and maintenance of large machine and machinery systems means we can help you make maintenance more effective while also reducing total life cycle costs. From providing advice to implementing or managing comprehensive plans, we can deliver:
We can help you improve productivity and reduce downtime by accurately diagnosing potential problems and early failures in your bulk handling machinery and systems. Our expert analysis, practical experience and advanced design tools can identify ways to adapt re-engineer your current designs to address problems before they occur or correct them after the event. Across the range of bulk handling machinery, we can identify and implement the improvements that deliver what we call ‘smart productivity’.
Effective condition monitoring is vital for managing both risk reduction and maintenance. Our experience of all aspects of planning, implementing and interpreting condition monitoring programs for materials bulk handling can help you maximise both productivity and safety. We also bring our specialist knowledge of measuring, monitoring and modelling to audit the structural integrity of vital bulk handling equipment.
We can help customers extend the operational life of their bulk handling systems as an alternative to replacement. The first step is to assess if this is a safe and cost-effective option, which involves measuring and analysing all potential failure areas. We then identify the most appropriate structural or mechanical upgrade strategies and can manage any resulting modifications.
