The specialised mechanism in AWMA’s NEW DLF utilises positive drive cables to mitigate risks associated with component wear in high frequency, modulating applications.
AWMA were engaged by Haslin Constructions to develop penstocks with a specialised decant mechanism for Clarence Valley Council’s Yamba STP Augmentation Works.
Prior to the project design commencing, council staff and AWMA discussed council’s “lessons learned” from previous decant mechanism installations.
The AWMA decant gate at Yamba STP has been designed to address issues identified through council’s, and AWMA’s, experiences to date.
It is expected that incorporating the knowledge and experiences of both parties in the gate design will minimise the overall operation and maintenance costs.
Four 7m wide DLF Penstocks and four TLF Penstocks were custom designed, manufactured and installed by AWMA. The DLF design utilises positive drive cables rather than spindles to minimise the high risk of mechanical failure common in equipment with high frequency duty cycles.
