Re-engineered, the best form of recycling..

One of the most rewarding things when it comes to working at TEAM, is when a client comes to us with a "do you think we could do this ....." question. Our engineers love it, our fabricators love it and our delivery teams love it. It is these little opportunities for us to put the creative hat on, prove that it can be engineered and built and it will work the way our client envisages it.

Recently, we got the opportunity to do this with one of our long term clients to increase the capacity and serviceability of a hose reeler. Our client required a practical and professionally certified design and fabricated solution for handling long bundled “groups of “hydraulic hoses, approx. 300m in length. The object was to transport the solution to site and pump grout products underground.


The Challenge:

The bundled hose were traditionally transported on back of truck to mine site, manually laid across the yard and then feed into a bore hole 300m deep. The bundled hose supplied essential grout to seal and stabilise underground strata. The bundled hoses were later retrieved by the truck towing out the hoses 300m from the borehole.


Our Role

Our client had a several light duty surplus dewatering hose reelers which were made redundant few years ago. We were approached TEAM to re-engineer and certify the dewatering reelers into heavy duty 2T line pull hose reelers. We engaged our engineering, drafting and fabrication teams to:
