Case Study – Specialised Pipe Racks – Lubricant Plant Expansion




YEAR: 2017



TFG Group proudly completed the Greenfield mechanical installation expansion for Fuchs Lubricants in Beresfield, New South Wales. The 12-month installation project included nine kilometres of 304 stainless steel sanitary grade tube, one kilometre of stainless steel pipe, multiple tanks and the specialised fabrication of a blending platform and pipe racks to move specialised oils around the 25,000 metered squared factory.


Austline Fabrication’s engineering team completed 3D drawings, then designed, fabricated and installed the 35 tonne specialised blending platform and pipe racks for the Lubricant Plant. The racks were designed for 40 percent extra capacity with future expansion. The platform is over 40 meters long and three tiers high and was flat packed, transported, assembled and installed by the Foodline Projects team on site in Beresfield. 40 tonnes of steel were used in the fabrication of the pipe racks and platform.

Austline also fabricated in their Perth Workshop a 6m x 4.5m blending platform complete with a stair access platform. It also included two extensive flow boards incorporating 46 ports and swing boards, combined with the fabrication and welding of additive hoppers. These were transported to site in Beresfield and installed by the Foodline team. Both platform and flow boards include full drip tray protection for cleanliness and safety of operators.


TFG Group reached another project milestone in quality and safety with 12 months or 26,000 hours MTI and LTI free. This is a testament to the dedicated project team on completing the specialised installation of pipework, tanks and all equipment within budget and on time.

Stainless Steel Launder Fabrication

Rio Tinto’s $2.6 billion Amrun project in Queensland is nearly one third complete, with bauxite shipments on track to begin during the first quarter of 2019. Civmec was awarded $160 million of contracts to construct a processing facility including bauxite beneficiation plant and associated capabilities/water, electrical and lighting systems. Civmec’s CEO, Patrick Tallon said the contracts had created jobs and provided a boost to Australia’s economy.

Austline Fabrications is proud to be awarded the stainless steel launder fabrication for this project and are committed to quality assurance by adhering to ISO 9001 coupled with providing ASSDA accredited fabricators.
