Celebrating Australian Manufacturing for Australia Day

28 Jan 2020 / Written by / Published in ATE Tankers News

In case you missed it, the Australian Made Campaign spotlighted ATE within both The Age and Sydney Morning Herald newspapers on Australia Day in recognition of ATE engineering and manufacturing the only tankers in the world accredited with the famous 'Australian Made' symbol.

A great reminder that supporting Australian products and industry benefits our society and economy nationwide.

ATE are back and a Happy New Year to all. We have a big & exciting 2020 planned in which we have many diverse projects that will push innovation & capabilities for Australian road tankers forward. For now, here's a taste of what to expect with our recent build which will catch the eye whilst on the road.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2020 from ATE

Merry Christmas to all from ATE. As we close off another busy year, we have rolled out a Pocket Road Train setup with Conventional Dual Product Dispensing System. The latest ATE unit has been designed and built for West Australian roads along the coast with a huge capacity of 85,000 litres for maximum delivery efficiency.

At ATE, we enable manufacturing flexibility and provide choice to our clients. This variation is managed across three adjacent production lines, with advanced IT systems that synchronise orders and schedule for the right on-time delivery. For example, our six new ATE tankers were all completed within tight time frames in close succession.

We all compete for the work, yet when there's an important cause to raise awareness for prostate cancer through It's a Bloke Thing campaign the industry can come together. ATE are proud for our A-Double to be featured within IOR Petroleum's recent feature for a fantastic initiative.

A new way of transportation, a new way of thinking

The new ATE Tri-Axle Vacuum Tanker range have been ingeniously designed with the end user in mind, focusing on efficiency, useability and longevity. As per ATE’s bespoke approach, all aspects are customisable according to client’s complex requirements.

Built to general purpose, EPA and DG dress, the vacuum system can be driven by either a stand-alone auxiliary diesel engine, where power output and operating revs are matched to required vacuum performance, or power generated via PTO from the prime mover. We offer a range of high vacuum, liquid ring pumps or blowers across a range of CFM air movement.

Aluminium, 350 Grade, AS Pressure Plate and 304/316 stainless steel are all available for vessel construction (application dependant). If a single tri axle isn’t big enough, we also offer these vacuum tankers in 25m B-Double combinations, which can be fitted with a super heavy-duty full-length chassis (available for Tipper and none-Tipper) or a heavy-duty running gear (none-Tipper). 5 stage tipping and full opening rear doors available across the range.

From an environmental point of view, we consider the tankers holistically. We source as much local content as possible, to support the local community and have the smallest possible carbon footprint. We then engineer each design to maximise performance and longevity without adding unnecessary weight, this reduces the amount of fuel required to pull our tankers. Our production processes utilise state of the art software to maximise weld torch efficiency, which in turn reduces electricity consumption. When we hydrostatically test our vessels, the water is filtered and recycled, so we don’t waste a critical natural resource.

The vessels themselves have integrated wear plates at known vacuum tanker wear locations; these plates are replaceable and greatly extend the life of the asset. This thinking has been applied to our internal surge baffles, which have been designed to be none structural and easy to replace in service. Regardless of application, our tankers use the dangerous goods design code. This means that the integrity of the tank minimises spills to ground, which benefits the environment.
