Project: Australian Gold Reagents, Sodium Cyanide Isotainer Supply

Client: CSBP Wesfarmers, Kwinana

Completed: October, 2015

Project Highlights:

  • Manufacture and Supply of 6 Sodium Cyanide Isotainers
  • Ownership of pressure vessels to CSBP reducing cost on existing lease fleet
  • Vessels internally lined with special anti-corrosive Corrocoat Polyglass coating for superior durability which will significantly increase the life and reduce maintenance requirements
  • Manufactured at our facilities in Baroda, India in accordance with ISO1161 for transport on standard rail carriage
  • Registered design approved by Worksafe Australia
  • Manufacturing to AS1210 and AS1554.5

Project Description:

Wesfarmers CSBP and Australian Gold Reagents (AGR) operate a large fleet of rail and truck transported Sodium Cyanide Containers for the gold resource industry.

The existing fleet has seen significant use and was due for repair and maintenance. CSBP engaged Access Petrotec to manufacture and supply 6 Sodium Cyanide Isotainers to replace part of the fleet. Significant cost savings were achieved through transfer from leasing transport vessels to ownership by Wesfarmers.

Project Deliverables

Access Petrotec was responsible for manufacture and supply of the ISO containers under a strict testing regime incorporating 100% radiogarpahy testing, liquid penetrant testing, ultrasonic testing and magnetic particle inspection.

In addition to testing requirements the vessels were manufactured in accordance with AS1210 and were designed with corner castings to endure high fatigue stress during rail transport as per AS1554.5 which was identified as a critical area by CSBP.

All vessels underwent post-weld heat treatment and were under strict inspection and supervision throughout the project by Access Petrotec and third party inspection agency Bureau Veritas.
