Self Filling Tankers – Video

brain industries self filling tanker (non-hydraulic)You can take control of getting rid of heavy sludges and solids that other equipment won’t pick up with Brain’s mobile self filling tankers.

They’re ideal for vacuum recovery in situ. These versatile units are powered by mine supplied air. Because there are no moving parts or contact with the materials you get maximum pumping efficiency and need to spend less time and money on maintaining the tankers..

Perfect for underground mines, hard rock or tunnelling projects and in civil construction. Hire or buy!

Stone duster overhauls and pressure vessel inspections

Underground coal mining companies know of Brain Industries’ expertise in manufacturing stone dusters (rock dusters) but did you know Brain also inspects, services and repairs stone dusters of any size?

This month alone, Brain’s expert team has completed stone duster overhauls and pressure vessel inspections for four different coal mines in NSW.

Overhauling a stone duster is a cost effective way to extend the service life of an expensive asset. Given the OHS and regulatory importance of effective stone dusting, experts recommend annual stone duster overhauls. Australian states have differing regulatory requirements for the inspection and testing of stone duster pressure vessels.

Pumps for flood clean up

Hiring a Brain Mudskipper Pump is a cost effective way to pump sludges and slurries

Brain Airloader pumps and Vac Packs help you quickly and easily clean up flooded mines, tunnels and other areas. Particularly if the floodwater is sludge or sand laden. Our smallest yet powerful Mudskipper pump can easily vacuum and discharge sludges, slurries, and mud with solids up to 60mm. It is great for hard to get to and confined spaces.

Hiring rather than buying can be a cost effective measure, particularly if you only need the pump  for a one off project. Read more about Brain equipment hire.


Brain the (boat) Builder

Look out Bob, Brain is now the builder – of boats that is.

Brain has acquired Queensland based Moda Custom Boats. Moda has a reputation for being the Rolls Royce of the Sea. Moda’s focus has been on recreational and small commercial boats.

But Brain will also use its team’s extensive knowledge of and experience in ship building from previous careers to expand into Defence, emergency services and other commercial marine build contracts..

With Moda’s equipment arriving at Brain’s Newcastle facility mid January, Brain is set to refloat the Hunter Region’s once proud history of ship and boat building.

Need a fishing or leisure boat, catamaran, mono hull or commercial boat? Watch the Moda video here.
