Snapper Concentrator Mechanical Fitting
Meridian Engineering supplied a mechanical crew to assist with the fitting of the concentrator pipe-work and associated equipment during construction. Near the completion of the project Meridian Engineering were contracted to implement repairs and modifications to the construction project.
After the completion of the Snapper concentrator, Meridian Engineering was successful in their bid for the contract to assemble the dredge for Snapper mine. This project was completed on time and within the proposed budget. Since the completion of this project Meridian Engineering has been contracted to fabricate and fit numerous modifications.
Design, Fabricate and Fit Hydraulic Line Covers. The hydraulic control lines for the Snapper dredge bucket wheel were found to be vulnerable to the elements and would require extra protection. Meridian Engineering designed cover doors that would provide the necessary protection and be able to be opened for hydraulic line servicing, without having to dock the dredge.
Council Bike Hub
Fabricate and erect a bike hub for the Mildura Rural City Council.
Refurbish Ginkgo Mine Dredge Bucket Wheel
Develop a scope of works to repair and upgrade the bucket wheel to ensure 12 months reliable service. Design and fabricate a bucket wheel stand to enable the wheel to be rotated through its axis for accurate alignment of adaptors and teeth
Change Over Bucket Wheels
Meridian Engineering has now changed over the bucket wheel annually since the opening of Ginkgo mine, removed the wheel for seal failures and re-tensioned the super nuts after each change over.
Repair and Modify Amanda II Suction Mouth
The suction mouth required major re-building and plating to prevent the previous fast deterioration of the suction tube. We also fitted a clay finger modification that has proven to be highly successful.
Erosion Repairs to Dredge Gearbox
The spare bucket wheel gearbox for Amanda II was badly eroded and had a limited wear package. SKF Adelaide, requested Meridian Engineering to repair all parent metal erosion, design a wear package and fit said package.
Repair Broken Spud Pile
After the spud failure on Amanda II, the broken sections were retrieved from the Ginkgo pond and transported to Meridian Engineering. These sections were repaired and re-joined utilising five, twenty tonne rotators and idlers and submerged arc equipment.
Fabricate Excavator Attachment
Fabricate and fit excavator attachment to grader blade for specialist type application.
Truck Loading Ramps
Design and fabricate hydraulically operated ramps to suit loading of 20 tonne excavator on drop deck trailer. These ramps were required to be removable so as to maximise trailer usage.
Bucket Repairs And Modifications
Crack testing and repairs to all types of loader and excavator buckets, modifications and repairs to high lift loader buckets.
