Ballance Fertco Machine Safety System

Ballance Fertco Machine Safety System

One Electrical recently completed a Machine Safety System upgrade to the Balance Fertco plant at Morrinsville in conjunction with PFS Engineering.

The existing Roller Crusher at site was replaced with a Hammer Mill Crusher due to poor output from the Roller machine. Our scope of the project was predominantly based on designing, supplying and installing a certified safety system for the Hammer Mill, including all machines in the crusher and drying plant.

The nature of this project required us to utilise certified, double redundancy hardware, which operates on proprietary software. This project required an extremely methodical approach to the design and commissioning procedures.

We engaged a Safety Systems Engineer for the system calculations and safety certification to Level PLd. One Electrical undertook the programming of the safety software as well as completed the as built drawings. Our team installed the system to site, tested and commissioned the safety system to the appropriate standards.

One Electrical regards health and safety of our team as non-negotiable. We are committed to providing and maintaining a workplace that complies with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. We enjoyed both the challenge, and the opportunity that this project provided, in assisting other companies and industries to keep their employees safe.
