Site Construction, Hot & Dusty
Our team at DIALOG Fitzroy Australia in Brisbane received a phone call from a major South Australian potato farmer asking if we could fabricate and install a new waste water clarifier for them, using free issued materials. This turned out to be an interesting and “hot potato” project where we had to apply some “outside the box” thinking to complete it as required.
The clarifier was designed in China and materials supplied from there. What we didn’t know was that the free issue materials had been supplied in a raw state, the plate was only 1.5m wide and none of the plate was cut to shape or rolled. This meant that there was over 150m of weld to make up the full development, once that was done the development was cut into 10 pieces of pie and then pressed to the required radius. All the cone segments where then shop assembled with flat bars on each joint so we could bolt up onsite and commence welding.
