Firing up the dairy industry in the South Island

Long-time Christchurch customer Lyttelton Engineering are in the process of building a new 15 megawatt coal-fired boiler for a Southland based dairy company. The boiler is a key part of the milk powder production process and is designed to turn raw liquid milk into milk powder - operating 24/7 after it was commissioned in August this year.

Easysteel supplied the A516 grade boiler plate, which was manufactured in Asia and rolled in Sydney, before being delivered to New Zealand for use by Lyttelton Engineering. Easysteel also supplied the 50.8 x 3.2mm boiler tube (approximately 4000 metres) from Bentalar- Germany.

It is pleasing to see local engineering companies with the expertise to continue being able to offer New Zealand industries this type of boiler despite strong competition from Asian manufacturers.
