Minetek Project Examples

Water Evaporation System

Coal-fired Power Station, USA

Coal-fired Power Station, USA

 

Challenge:

Minetek was commissioned to design and supply within weeks a complete turnkey package to be fully operating 24 hours per day, evaporating large volumes.

Solution and Results:

Minetek team successfully designed, manufactured, and installed a 316L stainless steel construction with eight (8) evaporator units and a heavy-duty pumping system that was fully automated and integrated into the power plant’s operating system. Minetek project specialists provided installation support and worked with the Power Plant personnel to successfully commission the system.

QLD Government, Australia

Details:

The Queensland Government Department of Natural Resources and Mines is responsible for the rehabilitation, care, and maintenance of the world-famous and historic Mount Morgan mine near Rockhampton in Queensland. They needed an evaporation water system for a specific volume per day from the Mount Morgan pit.

Challenge:

Minetek were engaged to design, manufacture, and install a large-scale three-unit water evaporation system at the abandoned Mt Morgan pit in an effort to manage water levels and reduce the risk of unplanned discharges into the Dee River, thus removing the potential impact on the environment.

Solution and Results:

After weather modeling and installation-location assessment, Minetek designed and supplied all aspects of the turnkey system including evaporators, transformers, pumps, pipework, electrical control centre, and cables, and commissioned and trained local maintenance teams. The Mt Morgan system forms a crucial part of the water management plan and has been efficiently operating now for over four years.

Acoustic Attenuation System

Newcastle, NSW, Australia

Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia

Given:

Caterpillar 789C large Mining Truck is engineered for performance, designed for comfort, and built to last. Developed specifically for high-production mining and hauling applications, 789C keeps material moving at high volume to lower the cost-per-ton.

Challenge:

The client had to significantly decrease the machinery noise level in order to meet environmental regulations and prevent the delays and stoppages on site that were leading to loss of production and profit. Minetek were commissioned to design and manufacture a sound attenuation package for the Caterpillar 789C Dump Truck down to the required stringent site-noise level.

Solution and Results:

Mining sites that installed the kit continued operations during noise-sensitive times and in noise-sensitive areas which balanced previous and prevented the further loss of profit.

Given:

Liebherr R 9800 is one of the largest mining excavators in the world. At 800 tonnes it is designed for large-capacity mining operations and can work on almost any surface. Developed as the optimal loading tool for large-scale mining operations, R 9800 is able to achieve the most challenging targets. Mining operations couldn’t continue during noise-sensitive times and areas close to communities and towns, nor in windy conditions.

Challenge:

Minetek were commissioned to design and manufacture the first sound attenuation package in the world for the mining excavator Liebherr R 9800 to reduce its operating noise down to the site noise-level without compromising its operating capacity, nor adding excess weight to the machine.

Solution and Results:

With the Sound Attenuation Package installed, Liebherr R 9800 operates at an amazingly low noise output. Minetek set an industry benchmark and noise suppression at the source is now best practice.

Exhaust Ventilation System

Newcastle, NSW, Australia

Newcastle, NSW, Australia

Challenge:

Minetek were commissioned to design, supply and install multiple exhaust ventilation systems into one of NSW’s largest shopping complexes on very tight installation deadlines while minimizing costs and maintaining the highest possible quality of both materials used and equipment.

Solution:

Minetek worked closely with the complex and mechanical contractors to deliver a robust turnkey ventilation system that is quiet, continuous, and reliable within the established timeframe, minimizing downtime and site delays.

Results:

With the Minetek industrial ventilation turnkey solution, the buildings became highly efficient as Minetek fans reduced energy and maintenance requirements while increasing functionality and occupant comfort and remained the sole source of ventilation for this prestigious, high-functioning, and busy shopping hub. The project’s mechanical contractor, consultant, and the mall’s management team are very pleased with how well the ventilation system performs and its ease of access for routine maintenance.

Challenge:

Minetek was commissioned to design, engineer, and manufacture a thermal protective shield that is removable/refittable with ease to protect from the potential fire a Cummins engine-powered 350-tonne excavator while also protecting maintenance personnel from hot exhaust components.

Solution and Results:

In addition to the steel protection plates that totally covered the hot exhaust elements preventing them from coming into contact with combustibles, Minetek made a removable blanket system of very high-temperature thermal insulation Silica materials to wrap the totality of the hot exhaust components, thus achieving:

  1. Extra protection from hot exhaust components and combustibles.
  2. Heat insulation and contention of exhaust manifolds and turbos.
  3. Reduced overall engine-bay temperature allowing cooling air through the chamber and redirecting out hot air.
