Thermamax Insulation Enclosure for Giant Excavator.

Extraordinary projects demand extraordinary expertize. That especially excites us. This time it was Design and Manufacture of an Insulation Enclosure for the engine compartment of a 65 tonne capacity giant excavator.

We developed and manufactured the Insulation Enclosure for the turbocharger and exhaust elbows of the high capacity machine. The particular customer request was for the insulation to be retrofittable for machines already manufactured, as not all markets have a requirement for insulation.

One year later the insulation was ready for installation. A 2.5m long insulation weighing 150kg consisting of 60 individual pieces was developed after close cooperation between customer, Sales and Design personnel. Special features of the insulation include a guaranteed flow of oil in the event of a leakage, and stiffened walk-plates to allow personnel access to the engine. Product validation on a hot engine was carried out using the latest measuring equipment.

Critical for the success of this and other similar development projects, are the capabilities we possess and the smooth cooperation between the departments involved in the company, in particular Sales, Design, and R & D. With the commitment from the customer, this allows us to develop robust, tailor-made design solutions.
