Case Studies

Keeping chemical loads safe on the roads.

The Brief

IXOM NZ, a market leader in water treatment and chemical distribution in Australia and New Zealand, needed to design and build B-train tanker units for transportation of various chemicals.

The Issues

Some of the chemicals to be transported are extremely corrosive, so careful thought was required around materials and design.

The Solution

Inconel 825 material was selected to withstand the corrosive chemicals. Together with our specialist welding procedures and 35 years of experience in manufacturing vessels for the chemical industry, this meant we could ensure that all chemicals could be transported safely.

Concentrating on performance and safety.

The Brief

Tīra Energy was engaged to manufacture six brine concentrators for Australia’s Queensland Gas Company project in Chinchilla.

The Issues

These were large evaporators – each was 5.0 m in diameter, almost 30m in length, and weighed in at a hefty 110 tonnes – so transporting them was going to be no mean feat.

The Solution

We manufactured the evaporators from a mix of SAF2205 and 2507 materials, with each containing 1500 tubes measuring, on average, 63.5m x 18.0m. They were safely transported to Chinchilla and installed ready for use.
