Bandag Australia provides road transport companies with a dependable and comparatively inexpensive tyre solution. Bandag was switching over to higher viscosity processing oils and contacted Practical Engineering to provide a technical solution for this changeover.
The project involved Practical Engineering performing a complete redesign of Bandag Australia’s oil reticulation and dosing systems. It also saw Practical Engineering design a heat traced and lagged main ring system to allow for recirculation of heated process oils, as well as the design and fabrication of the blow pots.
Throughout the entire project, Practical Engineering demonstrated strategic and systematic planning. By prioritising the client’s satisfaction and approaching the project in a methodical manner, Practical Engineering was able to ensure the changeover to higher viscosity processing oils was a smooth and cost effective experience for Bandag Australia.
