How a new solution from Daywalk now means that a large miner can safely transport small components. Newmont, the world’s largest gold mining company, at the Tanami Mine in the Northern Territory.
The client wanted to determine the best preservation method for its components – to reduce corrosion during storage and transport.
Originally employing Reactive Copper Technology, the company compared this option with Daywalk’s Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor (eVCI) solution, to see whether the eVCI technology represented an effective alternative to protect its components.
Existing control valve timber shipping frames were unsafe and not compliant. Global flow control solutions company Samson had challenges with control valves being sent from site for repair on old, unrated timber frames. These timber frames were deemed unsafe for transport back to sites, due to a fear of noncompliance to Chain of Responsibility legislation. Samson needed a durable, compliant transport system that could safely transport serviced valves back to site, and be safely reused multiple times.
Managing and implementing CoR compliant transport practices. Industry leading mining and cement equipment supplier, FLSmidth, had a challenge around training their operators in CoR compliant transport methods for equipment being dispatched from their facilities. The company did not have a documented benchmark system as to what was acceptable and unacceptable for transport of their heavy equipment. With heavy penalties for breach of CoR laws, management was concerned about how to best approach and manage CoR obligations.
Complex & risky drive-assembly transportation process. The logistics division of world-renowned industrial-drive equipment manufacturer and distributor David Brown Santasalo, had a complex logistics challenge for drive assemblies. This required a sophisticated, yet universal system that would be able to restrain drive-assemblies with multiple base sizes and complexities.
