Oversized Protection Screen

South Walker Creek Mine
BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA)

SWC Mine approached Wave International to Engineer and Design a protection system to prevent oversized material from entering a dilute sump.

Working closely with the customer, Wave was responsible for development of a conceptual design, design reviews and approvals and ultimately providing detailed engineering drawings for fabrication and installation of the design.

The design included a flood box for even distribution of flow across the new protection screen, additional steelwork in the tank to accommodate the new protection screen, a chute to relay the collected oversized material to a collection bin and additional walkways around the tank to allow for maintenance and clean out.

Wave’s expertise in Mechanical and Structural and Process Engineering design and Drafting provided a stable and functional design to capture oversize and protect process equipment.
