Plasmasters and Hi Tech Tooling doing their best

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Every comment regarding “MANUFACTURING IN AUSTRALIA” suggests that manufacturing is dead in Australia, despite the fact that there are many companies like Syngineering, Hi Tech Tooling and Plasmasters working overtime to keep manufacturing alive and well in Australia.  I thought that you would be interested in this excellent case study as it is a major win for Australia in terms of using China to keep manufacturing in this country.

A decision made to outsource tooling requirements

In the late 2000s, Plasmasters opted to close their in-house tool shop in favour of outsourcing their tooling requirements and they count Hi-tech Tooling as one of their key suppliers.

“We encourage our clients to take a holistic view of the lifetime cost of the product, rather than focus on initial capital cost”, Richard said. “While the cost maybe a little higher, we know that by investing in tooling of the quality provided by Hi-tech, the unit cost of the product will be lower over its lifetime.”

Among the many products that Plasmasters manufacture they recently developed two new products – a solar light and a bus timetable case.

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.

Effluent Treatment by Syngineering

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Syngineering Water, Australian distributors of VSEP water treatment systems have been applying the VSEP to many different ways to improve waste water treatment. This application is treating effluent from an abattoir and producing water that complies to the Australian Drinking water guidelines

I know this is not the best topic and people do not want to talk about effluent, but unless innovative practical engineers and scientists like the team at Syngineering continue to develop ways to treat effluent, waste water and leachate then we will destroy ourselves.

Syngineering have been developing new and innovative methods of treating effluent and waste water by combining VSEP and reverse osmosis.

Containerised Water Treatment Unit

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Published on Sep 4, 2016

Syngineering have been developing a new range of containerised VSEP units that fit inside a 40 foot shipping container. The systems also include a reverse osmosis option that when combined with the VSEP system, will produce water that complies with the Australian and New Zealand drinking water standards.  These containerised systems are ideal for a wide range of applications including landfill leachate, effluent treatment, coal seam gas, drilling mud treatment and many more.

Syngineering Secures Project to Recommission Power Station

Sunday, January 10th, 2016

Congratulations to the Syngineering team for securing another new project. This project involves recommissioning a 3.2MW gas fired power station running Caterpillar 3600 gas fired engines.

This is another huge step forward for Syngineering and provides a platform for further growth and expansion.

Excellent job by everyone.

ROPS & FOPS Related Standards

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Under Coomonwealth law Roll Over Protective Structures (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective Structures (FOPS) are legally required for earthmoving equipment with a mass of 1.5 tons.  Additionally tractors with a mass between 560kg and 15,000kg are required to be fitted with ROPS.

Specifically WHS Regulation 2011, s216 and  s217 imposes fines of $6,000 for individuals and $30,000 for corporations who fail in their responsibility to fit  compliant protective structures. Continue reading “ROPS & FOPS Related Standards” »

Electrical Drafters

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Many design jobs require electrical drafters with CAD skills in various software packages such as CATIA, Revit, AutoCAD or some other 2D drawing/3D CAD software.

The experienced drafters at Syngineering work with these CAD softwares on a daily basis. Our draftsmen come with tradesman experience, so they have worked on the tools and have the practical know-how when it comes to understanding what the client wants and doing the job properly.

VSEP Case Study – Virginia, USA

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

A landfill in Virginia has implemented VSEP systems to prevent high surcharge costs for discharging leachate water in sewer systems.  The leachate water contained higher levels of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) than acceptable and so incurred the surcharges.  Before installing the VSEP system the landfill tried unsuccessfully to use a dissolved air filtration (DAF) unit to pre-treat the leachate and was unsuccessful.

VSEP Case Study – El Inga, Ecuador

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

El Inga Landfill serves Quito in Ecuador.  Here they have had a problem with leachate treatment for several years and concerns that the groundwater is contaminated.  They implemented a MBR/digester system, but it was not able to provide the required discharge and so the leachate has had to remain in the ponds and evaporate naturally.

VSEP Case Study – Cerro Patacon, Panama

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Cerro Patacon is the only official solid waste landfill for Panama City’s garbage.  The site was storing the leachate in three large ponds, but this solution is not permanent, with an increasing population and pollution laws becoming stricter.

VSEP Case Study – Santo Domingo, Ecuador

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

The Santo Domingo Landfill caters to the third most populous city in Ecuador and therefore needs to hold a lot of waste.  The climate is humid and rains frequently, which leads to high volumes of leachate.  The current method for containing the leachate is using four large mesh-covered ponds, but is not an effective long term solution as the population increases and rainwater persistently fills up the ponds.

VSEP Landfill leachate

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Landfills are used to contain and manage waste products and prevent them from harming the environment.  Modern day landfills are used as storage sites where the waste products are dumped and sealed to stop the spread of pollutants and harmful pathogens. Continue reading “VSEP Landfill leachate” »

VSEP Case Study – El Presidente, Colombia

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

The city of Buga in Columbia was quickly outgrowing the area used for landfill.  In fact the projection estimated it would reach its capacity within four months.  The regulators told the Buga Landfill that prior to opening another site they needed to be able to provide a method of dealing with the leachate produced from the waste.

How VSEP Works

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

In the crudest sense Vibratory Shear Enhanced Processing (VSEP) takes the untreated feed water and separates it into clean water (also called permeate or filtrate) and dirty water (also called reject or concentrate), all without any chemical additives or pretreatment.

VSEP Case Study – El Bordo Poniente, Mexico City

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

Landfill Mexico CityOnce Mexico City’s only solid waste landfill, it is now closed to allow landfills to be opened further away from the residents of the city.  However, the landfill was used to support a 9 million person population and so is still producing leachate wastewater and will continue to do so for some time.
