Banlaw has a dedicated Research and Development team that are committed to continuous improvement of our products and services in order to maintain our industry leading position.
Our team can also work on specific projects to solve your particular refuelling or hydrocarbon management issues. For example, we have worked with Pacific National – a large freight loco operator in Australia – to develop our unique in-line refuelling coupling to overcome concerns they had regarding their fluid couplings used within In Line Refuelling systems, commonly used on longer haul journeys.
Banlaw worked in partnership with BHP Billiton Iron Ore to find an innovative solution to deliver faster service times. The solution was the Banlaw Evacuation Coupling (BEC) and a new range of male couplings (receivers) which are compatible with the BEC. These new products allow the BEC to safely, cleanly and efficiently evacuate waste fluids from the entire range of new receivers (sizes 1 to 11) with no need to change receivers. BHP Billiton will be introducing the range throughout their fleet so that any vehicle requiring service will have compatible receivers for a fast service.
