One of the world's largest oil monitoring systems has been installed in the Hunter Valley.
Alemlube has just installed one of the world's largest oil and lubrication monitoring systems in the coalfields of the Hunter Valley.
Recently, Alemlube completed the commissioning of one of its largest workshop fitouts at the new WesTrac CAT facility in Tomago near Newcastle, NSW.
This new WesTrac facility is the largest CAT dealer workshop in the Southern Hemisphere and has five separate workshop buildings spread over a 23 hectare site, and was designed to support growth in the Hunter Valley.
The storage, pumping, reticulation, filtration, dispensing and monitoring system that was designed and installed by Alemlube dispenses ten different oils plus coolant and diesel through 170 hose reels hung from 30 gantries situated across the five workshops.
Every oil dispensing point is monitored and fully integrated with the WesTrac Management system using the Oilwatch system from Permex.
This oil monitoring system in use at the WesTrac site is one of the biggest monitoring systems currently in use globally.
The oil is stored in tanks ranging from 1000L to 12 000L, all with tank monitoring systems integrated into the Oilwatch system.
After being filtered to stringent CAT 5 star specifications, the oil is pumped by high capacity Alemite pumps through 9 km of stainless steel pipework to the dispensing points.
Waste oil is extracted from every building and pumped back to a central waste. The total cost of the oil system installation was worth more than $2.5M and took six months to complete.
