Case Study: Midal Cables International - Manufacturer of Alloy Rod & Conductor


Midal Cables International_Backup power Generator installation by CAPS Australia
Midal Cables International (MCI) is Australia’s newest and most innovative manufacturer of alloy rod and conductor.

OBJECTIVES

Edwards & Vickerman were retained by MCI to provide mechanical services to their new
$60M plant at Tomago NSW, producing 50,000 tons of aluminium bar and cable for domestic
consumption and export. The specification called for an on-site nitrogen generation system, including:

  • Variable speed 2-stage rotary screw, oil flooded, enclosed type air compressors.
  • All dryers, pre/final filters, 3 receivers (3600 high) – one for each compressor.
  • Nitrogen generator capacity: 21.8 Nm3/hr / 99.95% N2 (500 ppm-02 / 10 barg / -50C
    pressure dew point).
  • Desiccant dryer and 3 buffer tanks.

SOLUTION

EVC recommended 3 x CAPS supplied Ingersoll Rand Nirvana R160NE compressors and a German-made Inmantec nitrogen generator, on the basis of an in-depth financial analysis over 10 years covering:

  • Running cost comparison.
  • Maintenance cost.
  • Potential compressor re-build costs.

BENEFITS

  • The tangible technical benefits of the nitrogen generation system include:
  • Two-stage airend and tri-rotor HPM variable speed motor.
  • Smaller space requirements and reduced operating costs compared to a liquid bulk nitrogen system.
  • No nitrogen evaporation/wastage.
  • Efficiencies generally assessed as 13% higher than the competition.

Midal Cables were very satisfied with the Ingersoll Rand plant and Transair pipe installation, which continues to perform well and met all pre-sales performance and energy usage projections.
