Pipe Infrastructure Capabilities
This project is to upgrade the existing infrastructure at the end users data centre for compliance with AS1940, reduce fuel filtration costs and introduce autonomous monitoring of the diesel fuel that supplies the standby system. In addition, the project also encompassed a generator upgrade from a 900kVA to a 1500kVA. Allmach supplied approx. 200m of SurePress 316L stainless steel pressfit pipe and hundreds of fittings and valves to support the project.
Challenges and Solutions
Key challenges for the project included the infrastructure being in the basement of a building and therefore strategic logistical planning was required to ensure that the project could be carried out in a safe and professional manner. Nevmat utilised SurePress SS316L pressfit piping system. Pressfit advantages including making on site modifications and reducing installation time and cost: SurePress is 30% more cost-effective and 10% faster than traditional welding methods. In addition, the press fit system makes QA quick and easy with a visual press check sleeve and the system also requires no special tooling, welding, hot works permits or post treatment.
Nevmat also cited Covid19 challenges with labour and material shortages. Jason Whaley, General Manager Nevmat Australia said “Allmach have always gone above and beyond with….(product supply)…. when we need parts urgently, Allmach always provide. Whether its same day dispatch and delivery… (or by)… our Allmach representative hand delivering the parts and products that we need.
