Heavy Duty Diesel Fire Pump System

Case Study

Customer: Sedgman Limited - Red Mountain Operation

Location: Millennium Coal Mine - 160km SW of Mackay

Specifications & Features:

Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment have successfully designed, manufactured and commissioned a diesel fire pump system for Sedgman Limited operating the Red Mountain Operation - Millennium Coal Mine.

Traditionally fire pumps are only required to either sit idle in the basement of high rise buildings until the event of a fire where they are run until they self-destruct, or used on mine sites more frequently and for long hours during power outages and for onsite pressure boosting.

Here at Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment we pride ourselves on supplying our customers with systems designed for longevity and continued onsite use. Often this means more money is outlaid on the build initially but this investment is quickly and easily recouped via lower ongoing maintenance and repair costs.

This particular diesel fire pump system utilised a large diesel driven industrial standard pump capable of operating at slower speeds meeting a duty of 45L / sec @ 80m head.

Project's Supply Scope:

  • The pump and diesel engine were upsized compared to the existing system, ensuring long term problem free operation
  • All fabrication, assembly and performance testing conducted by Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment in Mackay guaranteeing product quality
  • The controller used is a digital Welling & Crossley Controller which has been successfully used by Dowdens in other fire pump projects

Oil and Diesel Fuel Pump Set

Case Study

Customer: FK Gardner & Sons Group

Location: Rockhampton, QLD

Specifications & Features:

Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment have successfully installed and commissioned a specialised oil and diesel fuel pump set for Hastings Deering (Rockhampton) on behalf of the FK Gardner & Sons Group.

Project Requirements: The objective of the project was to transfer large quantities of oil and diesel fuel as quickly and efficiently as possible from an onsite fuel store to the 'Engine Dyno' rooms.

Plant's Critical Requirements:
  • Supply of oil had to be delivered at a minimum of 20L/min per hose reel
  • Diesel fuel was to be transferred from bulk onsite storage tanks to smaller 1000L 'day tanks' - then transferred directly to the 'Engine Dyno' rooms

Details:

Key Plant Features:
  • Fuel transfer is triggered via ultra sonic level sensors which tell the pumps to start once a minimum level is reached, once the maximum level is reached pumps automatically switch off
  • Wilden Air Pumps were used to transfer both the oil and diesel fuel to the 'Engine Dyno' rooms
  • 63mm Dura Pipe PLX was used for the diesel lines - this particular poly pipe utilises a durable internal lining to handle diesel fuel
  • The process used for the joining the Dura Pipe PLX was 'Electrofusion'
  • Existing onsite pipes were 63mm Calair Oil Pro Pipe which is used to transport oil to supply the oil reels in the 'Engine Dyno' rooms
  • The process used for the joining of the Calair Oil Pro Pipe was 'Socket Fusion'
