Structural Engineering Audits

Engineering Audits & Inspections

Engineering audits and engineering inspections are an integral part of both new projects on site and ongoing operations.  They are an exercise in benchmarking to assess and understand what is currently in place and quantifying this through reporting.  They can identify areas where corrective actions may be required to achieve compliance, or where improvements would provide a benefit to the client.  Engineering audits and engineering inspections are tools that can also be used to determine if a project was installed in accordance with the original designs, and provide an accurate starting point for future projects.  They can also be an opportunity to have an independent set of eyes review the situation and provide an informed assessment.

Comparing MBR & SBR Technologies

Monday, October 17th, 2016

While there are similarities between MBR and SBR (both are forms of the activated sludge process), there is one fundamental difference – the method of separating the mixed liquor from the treated wastewater.  SBR technology relies on gravity settling (or phase separation), while MBR technology uses the membrane as a physical barrier for separation.  On the surface this may seem like a subtle difference, however, by using a physical barrier for separation, MBR technology provides numerous advantages.

Seismic Detector Installation – Another Innovative Design by Syngineering

Saturday, September 3rd, 2016

Another innovative design project from Syngineering that eliminates many of the manual handling issues associated with installing Seismic Detectors.  Eliminates all of the manual digging and back issues not to mention potential snake bites as they walk through long grass.  This innovative design was developed and manufactured in Queensland, Australia and comes complete with RPEQ certification.

VSEP Solves Landfill Leachate in Columbia

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

The City of Buga in Colombia has a small landfill that serves the entire city. There was only a very small space left for putting trash and the projection was that it would run out of space in about 4 months. The Presidente Landfill asked authorities to open a new area on its property for trash disposal. The regulators told them that in order to give them a permit, they must install equipment to treat the landfill leachate. In addition, the existing storage ponds for leachate were nearly at capacity. Production of more Leachate would have required construction of more storage ponds.

A gas to energy project is also planned for this site. The first phase would be gas extraction with flares to burn the gas. The next phase would be installation of electrical gas-fired   generators   to   make   electricity. Prior to getting permitting for this project, leachate treatment was also required. While the trash in the landfill needs to be moist so that   bacteria   can   convert   organics   to methane, there cannot be too much liquid (leachate) in the trash or the rate of gas extraction would be impaired.

Process Description

A full –scale VSEP system was installed at this site using three of the large 84” VSEP modules. Since the filtrate would be used for land irrigation, only a single pass with RO was required. Other VSEP installations would also include a second stage RO spiral polishing system to make water that would meet surface water discharge requirements.  But in this case, Ammonia, COD, and other contaminants were sufficiently removed with just one pass through the VSEP RO system.

Syngineering develops fertiliser crusher

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Syngineering have worked closely with a local Queensland manufacturer to design and develop a crusher capable of breaking and then crushing a 5 tonne block of fertiliser into dust ready for use.

The team of experienced engineers, draftsman and tradesman worked closely with the customer and their tradesman to develop the a cost effective and robust design.

The Syngineering team not only developed manufacturing  drawings but 3D models, rendered models, exploded views and RPEQ certification for the project.

Oxygen Lance Reverse Engineering

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Syngineering have recently been working on a project for a major Queensland power station.  Furnace lance

The original request was to reverse engineer a set of components and produce manufacturing drawings for the oxygen lance.

Sounds simple, except for the fact that many of the components had been burnt away in the furnace.

The team of experienced engineers, draftsman and tradesman at Syngineering worked closely to produce not only manufacturing drawings but exploded views for manuals, sectional views and rendered models to help.
