Machine Fitting and Maintenance

Machine Fitting and Maintenance

Mechanical fitting of equipment and systems by minimising downtime and implementing cost effective strategies for maintenance.

Pipework and tubing including:

  • Tube bending through to major plant rebuilds.
  • Installation and maintenance of pipe and tube systems.
  • Flexible conduit installation.
  • Swagelock instrument tubing.

The team brings extensive experience and high level skills in working with pipe and tube systems in:

  • Stainless steel piping, seamless and welded pipe used in all industries where corrosion resistance is required.
  • PE piping, polyethylene (PE)¬†pipe is a cost-effective solution for drinking water, irrigation, mining, gas lines, sewerage and drainage systems.
  • PVC piping, polyvinyl chloride, PVC pressure pipes are manufactured from PVC resin compounded with stabilisers, lubricants and pigments, widely used for irrigation and water supply for domestic and commercial applications.
  • UPVC piping, unplasticised polyvinyl chloride polymer or PVC-U pipes offer a range of key benefits for use across the water industry, including strength that ensures a long service life in water applications.
  • CPVC piping, Chlorinated PolyVinyl Chloride, chemical resistant and superior in high temperature ratings.
  • ABS piping, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a thermoplastic polymer piping system suited to marine, cooling / refrigeration and many industrial applications

Recent Machine Fitting and Fabrication Projects

Water Reservoirs Roof Gutters and Stormwater

Metal Maintenance designed and constructed roof gutters and stormwater systems for 2 water reservoirs. Also included in the scope of works was flooring replacement at the adjacent water pump station.

Membrane Loading Installation/Replacement

Metal Maintenance recently used an innovative system and methodology to replaced over 3,400 2nd pass, and over 13,300 1st pass Reverse Osmosis Membranes at the Gold Coast Desalination Plant.

Installation of Fluoride Hopper Shut Off Valves

Concept design of gate valves that eliminates the requirement of manual handling associated with a manually operated valve. The fluoride powder sits in the valve slide and makes them difficult to fully close.

Refurbishment of Intake Screen at a WPS

The refurbishment of these 2 intake screens will allow the plant to continue to meet the required performance to provide a reliable and long-term system for effectively collecting debris in the raw water intake tunnels.

High Pressure Pump Overhaul at GC WTP

Metal Maintenance was required to dismantle, conduct durability inspections, reports, reassemble and then the commissioning of the high-pressure pumps at the Gold Coast Desalination Plant.

Repair Filter Outlet Assemblies at a WTP

The filter outlet pipework assembly and isolation valve spindles at a water treatment plant required replacement. There was varying levels of corrosion and some surfaces are not coated to prevent corrosion.
