Cummins C700D5 power box

Power up REF: MMPR 564

Benefits to the industry: The Cummins C700D5 power box offers greater fuel efficiency and lower maintenance costs, thanks to its advanced masterless load demand (MLD) technology, which enables smartly adapting power to match varying load demand.

MLD capable generators allow sharing of information among paralleled generator sets. The Cummins C700D5 synchronised unit has a 16 000ℓ external bulk fuel tank, with complete fuel line piping system.


Sustainable fuel assurance REF: MMPR 556

Benefits to the industry: The Patented DUO-Aquatrap, as its name may indicate, offers the best of both worlds in filtration. It proves to be the best in addressing both free and suspended water and article contamination in in one effective pre-filter.

Primer and topcoat in one REF: MMPR 559

Benefits to the industry: Kansai Plason’s Aquaduo is an innovative primer and topcoat in one that can be applied directly to prepared mild and galvanised steel. This saves both time and effort, and produces a finish that withstands exposure from harsh environmental conditions, while maintaining a protective sheen finish. Rust inhibitors are built into the coating, thereby negating the need for primer.

Solar charged REF: MMPR 563

Benefits to the industry: Magnet’s extensive portfolio of components for solar power systems includes Schneider Conext SW inverter/charger systems, which offer reliable solutions for community electrification, residential back-up power and off-grid solar power applications.

This pure sine wave solar hybrid inverter/charger system has been designed for optimum flexibility, with switchable 50/60 Hz frequencies available for 120/240 VAC and 230 VAC models. These robust units feature split-phase input and output, without the need for an external transformer. Stacking two Conext SW modules doubles the system’s total output power and solar charge controllers allow for the integration of solar capacity as required.

New DC/DC converters for the energy sector

Benefits to the industry: The new Quint Power DC/DC converters from Phoenix Contact are particularly suited to applications in the energy sector.

With its wide-range input, the DC nominal input voltages from 60-72V and 96-110V is converted into electrically isolated, adjustable 24V DC output voltage. In customer or works networks, an island manufacturing capability is typically made available by means of voltage levels of 60, 110 or 220V DC as battery-buffered, redundant supply voltages. The wide-range devices cover input voltages of 42-96V and 67-154V DC without any problems and are used in one-sided grounded networks with mid-point grounding. Thanks to the electrical isolation between the input and output voltage, independent supply systems can be established and monitored in a preventative manner.

Heavy duty process pumps REF: MMPR 562

Benefits to the industry: Rapid Allweiler Pumps provide heavy duty pumps with a number of special features. The single stage end suction centrifugal pump’s semi-open impeller allows it to handle solids up to 25mm.

The back pull-out feature allows for the removal of the entire rotating assembly without disturbing the suction and discharge pipe work, provided a spacer coupling is fitted. The volute casing has horizontal suction and vertical discharge flanges. 

The impeller is semi-open with partial shrouds for maximum vane support without the high thrust that is inherent in full shroud designs. It is matched to casing for high efficiency and enables excellent passage for solids.
Maintenance: Wear adjustment within the bearing assembly design allows for hydraulic performance to be maintained by an external impeller adjustment, thus giving extended maintenance intervals on the pump.

An effective alternative REF: MMPR 555

Benefits to the industry: Custom built E-Houses, manufactured by Shaw Controls, a division of Zest WEG Manufacturing, offer a rapid and far more cost effective alternative to the building of brick and mortar substations, and this is especially true in an underground application. 

Containerised electrical control installations in underground applications are not new. The concept was first used during the sinking of many of South Africa’s gold mining vertical shafts when ISO marine containers were equipped with mimic panels and other ancillary equipment. However, the evolution and development of pre-manufactured electrical substations or E-Houses has opened up numerous possibilities including the ability to completely customise the unit according to process and plant requirements.

Powered by the sun

Benefits to the industry: The P&C Mining Services Solar Powered Lighting Plant was designed with ease-of-maintenance, ease of use and cost savings in mind. 

The self-cleaning solar panels provide charge to 80 maintenance-free Lithium-Iron Phosphate cells. The cells supply power to 2 x 150W 24DC LED lights which provide 29,580 Lumens of brightness and are installed on an actuated pan and tilt base with an operation capability of 360° to the horizontal and 90° to the vertical axis. The self-deploying mast reaches 8m at full extension.
The trailer is fitted with outriggers which ensure stability on uneven surfaces and during rough winds. Assembled onto a trailer, the plant can be hitched and towed by an LDV allowing for easier manoeuvrability across a range of terrains. Support includes operation, training and maintenance manuals, on-site support and a 12 month warranty.
