7 Project Engineering and Consulting Bizmuth Engineering is focused on delivering turnkey solutions and projects with skill and knowledge that the engineers possess. With one of the most accomplished projects department within the hydraulic field supporting the engineers at Bizmuth Engineering. The projects department at BMG Hydraulics has assembled an impressive portfolio of success stories over the years involving some revolutionary projects.The process begins with the scope of the project being accurately defined through extensive on site consultation with the client. Thereafter, the appropriate solution is devised by drawing on the collective expertise of the engineering team. Each solution is unique, and developed to exacting specifications using our sophisticated CAD technology. 3D "Solid modelling" allows us to present a virtual image of the design in our drawing office prior to manufacture, keeping the client informed of our progress and the design that shall be implemented, and providing added piece of mind.Many people still associate hydraulics with a cylinder going up and down, but there is a lot more to hydraulics in this day and age. Technology and techniques have moved past the simple pump and cylinder stage and we are now seeing systems, integrated through the use of smart technologies, which are stretching the boundaries of traditional hydraulic design. Key to our success is the broad range of competencies manifested within the team. Bizmuth Engineering engineers, due to their vast experience and varied backgrounds, have the ability to integrate different technologies, from Hydraulics and Pneumatics, to Electronics and Information Technology.Mobile Service WorkshopWe identify that unscheduled shutdowns as a result of system failure are a massive point of concern for any production- orientated business. Therefore the concept of the mobile service workshop was devised, to perform as a hydraulic- ambulance. Travelling to you at a moments notice to get your system up and running again in the shortest time possible. The mobile service workshop is fitted with all the tools, spares and equipment necessary to perform the following functions:TroubleshootingTechnical assistanceOn-site repairsInstallations and commissioningSystem flushingOn-site fluid analysis (Draw down particle isolation and particle count)Hose and pipe assembly
8 Cylinder Design and Manufacture A key to specialized hydraulic service is the addition of manufacturing hydraulic cylinders according to the application, very few Hydraulic companies will manufacture cylinders to your application, they would rather you change your application to suit the design of a standard cylinder. Bizmuth Engineering together with BMG Hydraulics follows the approach of designing a system to the customer’s needs and will supply hydraulic cylinders according to the application of the client. BMG Hydraulics has built this reputation cylinder by cylinder for decades, creating hydraulic masterpieces upon which the industry is built. All cylinders are designed and produced from start to finish by Bizmuth Engineering engineers and BMG Hydraulics ISO accredited Cylinder Design and Manufacture Department. Starting with computer assisted design and advanced 3D modeling, and progressing right up to fabrication, where experienced and highly qualified artisans make use of the highest quality imported honed barrels and chromed bars.Unlike the majority of South African manufacturers, the engineered cylinders do not use peeled steel bars that are finished, flash chromed and polished. All our bars are ground and plated with micro cracked chrome. The roundness, straightness and corrosion resistance of these bars is infinitely superior to any locally produced bars. Bizmuth Engineering cylinder tubes are cold drawn steel DIN ST 52 BK+S (stress relieved) manufactured in accordance with DIN 2391-C (seamless). The tubes are straight within 0,5 : 1000 mm with an I.D. tolerance of H8.Bizmuth Engineering has access to a full machining facility at BMG Hydraulics, the manufacturing capabilities comes from the use of high-speed CNC lathes, which facilitates high speed, repeatability and accuracy. As well as high-spec facilities, which enable us to produce customized cylinders of any size.Fluid Analysis ServiceAn often over-looked, but critical element in any hydraulic or lubrication system is contamination control. The benefits of a system maintained through the use of high quality filtration equipment coupled with a regular sampling and testing program can be measured in terms of increased performance and longevity of components. Ultimately these improvements reflect in lower maintenance costs.Bizmuth’s systemic approach to contamination control consists of three key steps that allow you to obtain and maintain the appropriate cleanliness level for your hydraulic or lubrication system.Determine the Target Cleanliness Level for the systemTake Action to achieve the Target Cleanliness LevelMonitor & Maintain Fluid ConditionAscertaining the current state of your system fluid, as well as monitoring and maintaining fluid condition once corrective measures have been taken is made easy through Bizmuth Engineering and BMG Hydraulics comprehensive Fluid Analysis Service.The laboratory is fully equipped to perform an exhaustive range of test procedures, specifically designed for the analysis of hydraulic and lubrication system fluid. The equipment in the lab is at the technological apex and is routinely calibrated to ensure that accuracy is verifiable.Solid particulate contaminants are arguably the most common cause of failure in hydraulic components. Ensuring that particulate contamination is not a factor in the failure (catastrophic, intermittent, or degradation) of any component in your system, is the first step in creating a risk management envelope for the system. This test determines the level of particulate contamination in your system fluid through the use of an automatic particle counter. The automatic particle counter uses a high intensity laser light source coupled with a photo sensor. This actively counts the number and size of particles contained in a fluid sample. The quantitative results of the count are reported in a detailed particle size distribution table, sorted by size and quantity.This quantitative data is then translated to produce an ISO 4406 cleanliness code for the sample (e.g. 18/16/14). The cleanliness code for the sample can then be compared against the cleanliness level recommended for the system.
9 Cylinder Repair and Testing Bizmuth Engineering are also engaged in the refurbishment of cylinders, which are subsequently tested by our test facility to ensure quality and reliability. The BMG Hydraulic cylinder department boasts a staff compliment with decades of experience in cylinder repair and design evaluation. Chronic cylinder problems are normally the result of inadequate initial design and/or incorrect prior repair.Our engineers will quickly identify the root cause of chronic cylinder leaks and other plant failures. If your plant or equipment requires regular overhaul, please contact one of our engineers for assistance. The types of cylinders that Bizmuth Engineering can supply are listed below, but remember that this is a guide, Bizmuth Engineering can custom build a cylinder according to a customer’s application.High-pressure cylinders with operating pressures up to 70 MpaMulti stage telescopic rams, both single and double actingConstant velocity telescopic ramsHeavy duty mill type cylindersLow friction - high speed cylindersBelleville spring actuated hydraulic release clamp cylindersStandard CylindersBizmuth Engineering offers standard cylinders that have an extremely quick turnaround time; a full catalogue is available listing all the series of standard cylinders. The range has been designed for use in industrial and mobile applications with operating pressures to 25 Mpa. Standard cylinders are useful when designing new systems, a large range of literature is available on the standard cylinders and many options are available for the specific design application.
10 Manifold Design and Manufacture Bizmuth Engineering offers design and manufacture of hydraulic systems and manifolds with the backup of BMG Hydraulics experience of more than half a century. Manifold design and manufacture department at BMG Hydraulics is one of the most technically advanced facilities to be found in the continent. Complete end-to-end service from initial design to the finished product all takes place in-house using Computer Assisted Design and Manufacture (CAD & CAM).Our sophisticated 3D "solid" modeling technique means that both interior and exterior dimensions of the manifold can be viewed in a virtual environment prior to fabrication. The advantage being that any potential flaws in the design can be identified and amended to the client’s specifications prior to manufacture.Milling and machining takes place in the highly advanced CNC machining centres. In addition to the high quality finishes produced by this machinery, accuracy and repeatability in high volume runs is also ensured by the CAM process.Bizmuth’s manifolds are fabricated with quality assured Durabar steel plate imported from the USA, and because all fabrication takes place on BMG Hydraulics’ premises, complete control over quality is exercised through a ISO accredited works procedures. This degree of control over quality is to our knowledge unparalleled in Southern Africa
