Detail Design & Documentation

Technically sound, logical, practical and skilled engineers, born from an industrial background. We meet our clients needs through a very broad set of skills learned from years working in industrial facilities.

Covering all design phases of a project, from initial scoping and definition to detail design, and documentation of installation, commissioning and project management. Our experienced engineers offer technical expertise and specific advice from jobs as small as crane certification, through to larger work such as bulk materials handling and conveying projects.

With more than 200 years’ combined experience covering all facets of mechanical and machine design in Australia and internationally, pitt&sherry’s mechanical engineers have demonstrated capability in:

  • Design and engineering analysis of mechanical component by theoretical and FEM (Finite Element Analysis)
  • Third party proof design engineering verification and certification
  • Plant / equipment up gradation – proposal, design, engineering, implementation and testing
  • Act as owner representative for project management from concept to completion
  • Design of bulk materials handling for mining and minerals processing, wood products manufacturing and food and beverage industries, including conveyors, bins, chutes, hoppers, crushing plant, drag chain conveyors and bucket elevators, and pneumatic conveying systems
  • Development of specifications for drive systems, shafts, brakes, couplings and reduction gearboxes
  • Development of specifications for hydraulic and pneumatic systems
  • Preparation of installation and commissioning procedures, and operation and maintenance manuals
  • Specialist lifting equipment, monorail cranes and hoists, lifting hooks and strong-backs
  • Dust control and industrial ventilation systems
  • Design of all mechanical structures from machinery beds to steelwork structures, bins, chutes and hoppers, including stress analysis, strain gauging and fatigue analysis
  • Tank and silo design, including explosion-venting and pressure relief
  • Hazard and operability studies (HAZOP) and safety risk assessments
  • 3D modelling (inventor)
  • Design registration and third party inspection and certification
  • Pressure piping and pressure vessel design and certification
  • Steam, boiler, reticulation, condensate, trapping, systems, full design, 3D isometrics
  • Process and instrumentation diagrams (PID) development for all piping processes.
