Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU) are the fourth largest water distributor-retailer in Australia, supplying drinking water, recycled water and sewerage services to a population of more than 1.4 million in South East Queensland. Luggage Point Waste Water Treatment Plant is located near the Brisbane Airport and roughly 15kms from the CBD and supports the metropolitan area.
The Luggage point Treatment plant required the upgrade Slug Draw Off actuation and the actuation controlling the Rectangular Desludger Traveling Bridge. The criteria was for the equipment to be suitable to the continuous exposure to H2S and be capable of equipment reliability with precise communicating to the control system.
Acrodyne’s solution was the supply an Limitorque MX10 coupled to a ACROGEARS multi-turn gearbox for the Rectangular Desludger Traveling Bridge. For the Slug draw off valves Acrodyne provided direct mounted Limitorque MX10 and MX 20 actuators. The packages were optioned with a harsh environment marine grade coating. Base coat comprised off Durebuild high build epoxy coating and then finish with Weathermax 2 part Polyurethane coating. high performance coating that exhibits excellent gloss and colour retention during extended service periods in severe industrial and marine environments.
Predominantly a competitor’s site, apart from the products on offer it was Acrodyne’s commitment to service, support and a strong relationship with the engineering group at the plant that won Acrodyne right to supply and fit their product to the project. Since the installation Acrodyne has supplied another smaller solution within the plant.
