Mackay Renal Unit UV Sterilisation System
Customer: Queensland Health
Completion Date: 11/02/2014
Location: Mackay, QLD
Specifications & Features:
Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment have successfully designed, installed and commissioned a specialised Ultraviolet filtration system for the Queensland Health Mackay Renal Unit.
Project Requirements: The original system operated by pumping town water to individual filtering stations where the water would pass through a 5 micron, 1 micron and carbon filter on its way to the dialysis machine (which has an internal reverse osmosis filter).
The issue Dowdens faced was the original system filters were only lasting between 5 - 15 hours, and by this stage they were black and needed to be replaced!
After reviewing water test results, Dowdens designed a compact, reliable system where the existing pump was upgraded, a water softening unit was added to remove iron, calcium and manganese, large cartridge filters were installed to prefilter the water before it then entered a dedicated UV steriliser.
Using the above system the Mackay Renal Unit now only needs to replace the systems filters every 7 to 10 days - saving thousands of dollars in system maintenance costs!
Key Plant Features:
Due to limited space the system design had to be compact and robust
Complex pipework was needed to reticulate above and around existing equipment
All water treatment system components needed the ability to be isolated to enable easy service and system part replacements
The huge showroom (see below) has increased our stock warehousing capabilities dramatically, meaning even greater savings on a myriad of water treatment and pumping equipment for the home, farm and mine site.
Our in-house workshop capabilities are continually growing much like our team of expert dedicated pumping & water treatment staff!

Specifications & Features:
Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment are proud to be promoting the very latest innovations and energy savings available via professionally engineered solar pumping systems for the farm or homestead.
In line with this campaign Dowdens have designed, built, installed and commissioned a solar pumping system for a cattle station located in Coppabella, QLD.
The crew installed 16 solar panels fixed to 2 solar arrays, each capable of producing 200W via the 8 photovoltaic solar panels on each array.
The pump draws the onsite water from a 66m deep, 125mm bore which is then transferred via poly pipe to the station homestead and cattle yards over 2km away.
