Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment Rockhampton will be @ BEEF 2015
Wednesday, 1 April 2015
Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment's Rockhampton branch will be in attendance and exhibiting at the triennial Beef Australia 2015 exhibition in Rockhampton, QLD - a celebration of all facets of the Australian beef and rural agriculture industries.
Beef Australia 2015 will feature more than 4500 cattle from over 30 breeds; a trade fair promoting more than 500 businesses; a conference, seminars and property tours to deliver new research information to producers; plus restaurants and celebrity chefs delivering cooking demonstrations for visitors to appreciate the quality and flavour of Australian beef.
With power becoming more expensive each year throughout rural and remote areas the need to reduce overall running costs on the farm is a must. Using this as a catalyst for further business specialisation Dowdens Rockhampton are providing affordable and efficient solar pumping solutions to help combat ever increasing electricity prices. Ranging from stock watering systems through to large scale broad acre irrigation our dedicated sales, installation and service crews will have all your solar pumping needs covered.
Come visit Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment in the Walter Pearce Pavilion @ Beef Australia 2015 on stands P27 & P54 to view the latest technological innovations in solar pumping, water treatment, small and large scale irrigation and speak to our experienced team to learn more about our efficient fluid handling solutions. There will also be Dowdens 'showbag goodies given away!
Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment are Queensland's leading provider of world-class engineering solutions for any type of fluid management project. Our capabilities cover the entire fluid management spectrum, from concept and design to scheduled servicing that sustains and enhances new and existing operations.
Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment are proud to be promoting the very latest innovations and energy savings available via our professionally engineered solar pumping systems for the farm or homestead.
Appleton Pastoral Company (a Queensland Beef Cattle Enterprise with several properties across Central Queensland) purchased a solar pumping system to manage their onsite stock water reserves.
The system was required to pump from Appleton Pastoral Company's new dam to a turkeys nest holding dam (geographically located at the top of a major elevated ridge in Alpha).
The system pumps on average 100,000L / day @ 20m total head. From the turkeys nest the stock water then gravity feeds several kilometres down the elevated ridge to troughs and other water tanks located throughout the property.
Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment's Rockhampton branch will be in attendance and exhibiting at the triennial Beef Australia 2015 exhibition May 4th - 9th in Rockhampton, QLD - come visit us in the Walter Pearce Pavilion @ Beef Australia 2015 on stands P27 & P54 to view the latest technological innovations in solar pumping, water treatment, small and large scale irrigation and speak to our experienced team to learn more about our efficient fluid handling solutions.
Key Project Features:
Appleton Pastoral Company chose a Dowdens professionally engineered Solar Pumping System to manage their stock water as it is simply the most cost effective, reliable and low maintenance option available
The 1500W solar array used is mounted on a 2 post gas tracking array (allowing the photovoltaic panels to track the sun from East to West each day) - this style of post gas tracking array uses the weight transfer of liquid in two cylinders to track the sun unlike other electric powered tracking arrays
The Grundfos SQflex range of pumps come with 240v back-up if required, a built in dry run protection and a helical rotor option for higher heads (used for bore applications)
Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment are not limited to the Grundfos solar pumps - we offer a wide range of all the leading solar pumping brands basing their application on clients preference, price and of course suitability to specific site pumping requirements.
Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment secure rights to MIRACELL Sewage Treatment Systems
Monday, 1 December 2014
Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment are proud to announce securing Australia-wide exclusivity of the MIRACELL Rotating Biological Contactors (RBCs) Sewage Treatment Systems. MIRACELL RBCs are the systems are most preferred globally by customers who clearly understand the economic value in purchasing an expertly designed and professionally built Sewage Treatment System!
MIRACELL RBC Sewage Treatment Systems are fully automatic, modular designed Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) treatment systems specifically designed for sewage treatment applications in capacities ranging from 50 to 20,000 equivalent people (treatment of between 10m3 up to 4000m3 / day). Representing the ultimate in Sewage Treatment Systems, a MIRACELL RBC consumes as little as one fifth of the electricity and requires as little as one third of the space of its competitors based on the activated sludge technology.
Having exclusive rights to MIRACELL RBCs has increased Dowdens capacity to design, supply, install and service large scale Sewage Treatment Systems suitable for use by municipalities, caravan parks, mining camps and a wide range of other commercial / industrial sites where onsite sewage treatment is needed.
Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment employs an experienced team of WTP and STP Project Specialists comprising of Mechanical and Process Engineers, Project Managers, Draftsmen with 3D Autocad skills and qualified installation and service crews, together with our in-house workshop facilities for the fabrication of steel and stainless steel skids and bases, Dowdens has little to nil reliance on outside contractors when delivering complex Water and Sewage Treatment systems - in essence we are a 'one-stop pumping, water and sewage treatment shop'.
Examples of Dowdens Water and Sewage Treatment projects:
Portable Solar Powered Shower and Eye Wash Station
Customer: Downer EDI Mining Blasting Services
Location: Jellinbah, QLD
Specifications & Features:
Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment have successfully manufactured, commissioned and supplied a self-contained Solar Eye Wash and Safety Shower station.
The safety station incorporates safety shower and eye wash facilities, which are supplied from a water tank via the solar powered Grundfos pump.
These were designed and manufactured to comply with Australian Standards AS4775-2007.
Dowdens supplied the portable Solar Eye Wash and Safety Shower station to Downer EDI Mining Blasting Services for use at the Jellinbah Group's Jellinbah Mine (located 30km North-East of Blackwater, QLD).
Project's Supply Scope:
Water Tank is insulated with drain valves and fill points
2x 95W Solar Panels
Heavy duty battery pack
Voltage regulator and power inverter control panel
Grundfos pressure water pump
Stainless steel base frame with 'grab rails'
Eye wash basin and lever action shower head
The station uses the suns energy to charge 6V batteries via 2x 95W solar panels
This energy is then stored and converted to 240V power which in-turn drives the electric Grundfos pump
The Power Inverter Control Panel contains the solar charger module and the power inverter module
The self-contained Solar Eye Wash and Safety Shower station was designed and manufactured to comply with Australian Standards AS4775-2007
