|Safe and effective control of a processing plant
|In order to control the processing equipment and therefore the product quality at North Park Quarry, flows of water through the Hydrosizers require regular adjustment using an in line teeter water control valve.
Concerns were raised that a ladder had to be used to access the valves.
To eliminate the working at height hazard, a geared valve system was installed. As a result operators now control the teeter water valve from the same floor level as the Hydrosizers sand density monitors.
This solution has eliminated the working at height hazard and stopped the repetitive actions required to control the processing equipment.
