Hydraulic solutions for all sectors throughout Africa

BMG’s Regional Service Centres (RSC) which are situated in the major city centres and commercial nodes throughout the country, play a critical role by providing engineering solutions – including hydraulics, lubrication, greasing and pneumatics services – designed to optimise productivity for every customer.

“Through the consolidation of BMG’s regional workshop facilities and field services into centralised hubs, dedicated RSCs are able to assist customers who are faced with a lack of engineering expertise, costly machinery repairs and unnecessary downtime periods,” explains Daniel Feiteira, BMG’s Business Unit Manager – Fluid Technology High Pressure division.

“An important focus of RSCs is on fluid technology services that integrate quality branded components, full turnkey engineering and contamination control, as well as test and repair services, to ensure optimum performance and extended service life of all Fluid Technology hydraulic and lubrication systems.

BMG is able to assist with design, manufacture and assembly of all hydraulic, lubrication and pneumatic systems, whether it is for a workshop, process upgrade or of a hydraulic system for an entire new plant.”

BMG follows stringent ISO accredited procedures to ensure the integrity of every hydraulic system. Each repaired component is assessed by the company’s testing facility and certificates are issued as assurance that equipment has passed the strictest performance standards.

A critical element in any hydraulic system is contamination control. BMG’s systemic approach to fluid analysis emphasises the benefits of a system that is maintained through the use of high-quality filtration equipment, coupled with a regular sampling and testing programme. An efficient fluid analysis service ensures improved performance, extended life of components and reduced maintenance costs.

The company’s service to the hydraulics sector also includes a mobile workshop that is fitted with tools, equipment and quality branded spares, to be able to efficiently perform functions like troubleshooting, on-site repairs, installations, commissioning and system flushing. This service also incorporates on-site fluid analysis and hose and pipe assembly.

A recent success for BMG was the design and manufacture of a radial door Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) urgently required to operate an ore pass radial door at a process operation in Zambia.

This large-scale project required a system that would open and close one cylinder with a stroke of just under 1,5m via 15m hoses, ensuring high performance, precision and control. BMG’s solution, which included 56 unique components listed on the general assembly drawing, was an HPU system mounted on a large 630 litre tank and supporting frame, with two 525V high-efficiency motor pump sets, three 55 litre accumulators and two electrical control panels.

The BMG Hydraulics engineering team has recently designed an HPU that will be used on a newly built furnace in Poland.

With 10 pages of specifications and requirements presented by the customer, the challenging design process needed the BMG team to closely consider the unique hydraulic system design, components and system operational parameters.

This HPU, which was designed by BMG for this prestigious project, conforms with stringent CE certification for operation in Europe. CE certification and conformity were carried out in conjunction with a third-party assessor, in order to meet precise customer requirements.
