We undertake the engineering required to take preliminary concepts through to detailed design prior to commencing the construction phase. By integrating our engineering capability with project delivery customers get a seamless and transparent delivery from concept to completion. Some of our recent engineering projects are listed below.

Design, Manufacture and Install Three Belt Conveyors

Engineering

  • Client:

    Iluka Resources Ltd
  • Project:

    Design, manufacture and install three belt conveyors for North Capel Sep Mill
  • Location:

    Capel, WA
  • Date:

    2018

What We Did:

As part of Iluka’s Separation Mill expansion LGM designed, manufactured, assembled and commissioned a series of three belt conveyors and one weigh feeder in accordance with client requirements.

The conveyor system design was compliant to relevant Australian Standards, client specifications, operational constraints and achieved the prescribed benchmarks for throughput and serviceability. LGM’s design incorporated all required instrumentation, controls, interlocks and sensors required for the safe and efficient operation of the plant.

Submerged Drag Chain Conveyor Replacement

Engineering

  • Client:

    TW Power Services Pty Ltd
  • Project:

    Design, fabricate and install new submerged drag chain conveyor
  • Location:

    Collie, WA
  • Date:

    2019

What We Did:

LGM was engaged to redesign, fabricate and install a new submerged drag chain conveyor to improve the operation and reliability of the system previously installed in 2011. LGM was able to respond to the complexity and tight schedule of this project, successfully implementing a solution to withstand the extremely harsh operating environment.

The updated design adopted an encased girder philosophy (rather than the stick construction of the outgoing unit) which was able to withstand the effects of ongoing hot clinker impact (clinkers falling from 20 m with a mass of over 1 tonne) from the furnace above and the resulting rapid release of steam. Additionally, the acidic nature of the ash hopper contents led to a high corrosion rate – mitigated through the use of exotic materials.
