08/08/2011 - TWIFLEX MODULAR BRAKING SYSTEM ENSURES SAFETY AND RELIABILITY ON SAG MILL AT NEW COPPER AND GOLD MINE
When Mount Milligan Mine in British Columbia, Canada, commences production in 2013, it is anticipated that it will produce 81 million pounds of copper and 194,000 ounces of gold annually – vital at a time when demand for copper in particular is at an all time high and likely to outstrip supply for years to come. Key to the production of these important resources will be a new 22MW SAG mill, with vital braking operations performed by Twiflex 30MNm modular brakes.
 
08/08/2011 - PUMPS FOR EXTREME CONDITIONS
It could be every Production Engineer's nightmare - a transfer system that has to continually convey a foaming, corrosive medium at a pressure of over 4 bar and temperatures of 130°C. Add a process requirement for conveying varying volumes of between 300 and 2,000 litres per hour with maintenance-free operation and a legislative necessity for hermetically sealed pumps and the scale of the task becomes apparent.
 
08/08/2011 - ALPHA IS STREETS AHEAD THANKS TO VERLINDE
Five cranes in two days lifts service to new levels

Devon’s Alpha Lifting Services is now streets ahead of the competition – thanks to a little help from VERLINDE FRANCE. As an approved supplier of Verlinde lifting equipment, Alpha is a one stop shop for the finest lifting equipment, so when Brecknell Willis needed five cranes, fast, Alpha rose to the challenge and supplied the five cranes in double quick time!
 
08/08/2011 - Rotork actuates sub-sea safety valve installations at Egyptian gas field
Rotork Fluid Systems has supplied the specialised hydraulic actuator package for a second sub-sea safety isolation valve (SSIV) installation on the same offshore gas gathering project off the coast of Egypt.
 
04/08/2011 - PERKINS PUMPS UP TEST FACILITIES
A new motor, variable speed drive and control system designed, manufactured and installed by Softstart UK is providing Perkins Engines with enhanced facilities for testing and evaluating diesel engine fuel pump systems at its Global Engine Development centre in Peterborough.
 
03/08/2011 - Aberdeen Royal Infirmary estimates that Spirax Sarco EasiHeat™ systems have delivered energy savings of more than 15%
Switching its domestic hot water and heating from shell-and-tube calorifiers to EasiHeat™ systems from Spirax Sarco has delivered energy savings of at least 15% at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Replacing the hospital’s ageing calorifiers has also saved up to three weeks of maintenance work each year, since the old systems had to be stripped down for regular insurance inspections.
 
03/08/2011 - New wave and tidal turbine concept promises clean, affordable energy
Practically infinite reliability was the defining requirement when researchers wanted to run a TorqSense transducer under the sea as part of extensive trials of a green energy turbine.


 
03/08/2011 - LITRE METER SUPPLIES GEVEKE POMPEN WITH POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT METERS FOR WINGATE MEG SKID
UK flowmeter specialist Litre Meter www.litremeter.com has shipped VFF positive displacement flowmeters to Dutch oil and gas package supplier Geveke www.geveke.com. The meters will be used in a monoethylene glycol (MEG) injection skid for Wintershall’s (www.wintershall.com) new Wingate natural gas platform in the North Sea.
 
03/08/2011 - PETROBRAS P-57 SUPER PLATFORM COMES ON STREAM WITH WEG TRANSFORMERS, & LV & MV MOTORS & CONTROL PANELS
Brazilian oil major, Petrobras, has just launched P-57, a super FPSO- (floating production, storage, and offloading) type platform, Expected to commence oil production at Parque das Baleias – in the north of the Campos Basin, Brazil – in late November, P-57 will be anchored at a depth of 1260 meters, and be capable of processing up to 180,000 barrels of oil and 2 million cubic meters of gas per day.
 
01/08/2011 - WEAR PROTECTION IMPROVES LIFE PERFORMANCE OF QUARRY PLANT IMPROVING ROI VIA INCREASED THROUGHPUT & REDUCED MAINTENANCE
The arduous conditions encountered in quarrying applications cause many types of plant and equipment to degrade and fail prematurely. One of the major reasons for these failures is abrasion. During the many stages of the quarrying process - crushing, washing, screening and classifying – abrasive minerals are in direct contact with equipment. The resulting friction causes equipment to degrade at a rate dependent upon the type, size, volume and Mohs hardness of the material being processed. Establishing this rate is important because it determines the extent of investment needed to protect plant and equipment from future failures.
