We have a wealth of knowledge in industrial settings. We understand when you need an electrician you need one fast.  We know you want someone who knows how electrical systems function in industrial plants.  We know you want people who get in, work hard and get the job done. And we know that skipping on preventative maintenance can be costly.  We know that is why more industrial customers are using the services offered at Astrotec.

Our technicians possess a wide range of skills gained from exposure in Tasmania and interstate within industries such as mining, quarries, concrete plants, aquaculture, water treatment facilities and natural gas generation plants. 

In addition to all of your installation and maintenance requirements, Astrotec will help industrial customers in Tasmania to implement a structured preventative maintenance program tailored to suit your business that will result in a reduction of costly breakdowns. Prevention is definitely your best option to avoid large costs associated with faults not being fixed until they create a large issue.  However, should a breakdown occur, we understand the importance of a fast response time.  We prioritise our industrial customers when it comes to emergency breakdowns to get you back into production as quickly as possible.

 If your industrial plant requires expansion, we have the capabilities and skills to design and construct your electrical requirements.

We can supply and install backup diesel generators with an ATS (Auto Transfer Switch) built into your main switchboard to monitor the mains supply and start up the generator in the event of a power failure.  Other useful equipment, such as auto diallers can be installed to call a mobile phone if certain equipment fails.  We can maintain and repair all sorts of industrial machines and equipment.

Another advantageous service we can provide is data monitoring of your electrical systems.  We have state of the art equipment to log power usage, voltage fluctuations and current draw, overloaded phases, harmonics, power factor and a multitude of other useful information to help us diagnose energy usage and electrical faults.

Thermography


Thermography


Thermography

Astrotec have the latest in FLIR thermal imaging cameras (TIC).  We can take digital thermal pictures of your switchboards, motors, pipes and a multitude of other areas to help identify problem areas.  TIC’s give you the power to see problems in a way no other technology can.  TIC’s allow you to inspect equipment quickly and take accurate temperature measurements from a safe distance. FLIR TIC’s help you find impending trouble before it hurts someone, shuts things down or wastes energy.

TIC’s can be used in many different areas of your business, which can accelerate your return on investment. Most electrical and mechanical devices get hot before they fail. Finding these problems early allows you to do repairs on a more convenient schedule rather than in an emergency. But there are plenty of other areas where we can help you to save money, including; flat roof water damage detection, process control, building diagnostics, plumbing and HVAC problems and energy loss.

A “whole building” approach is needed to maximise energy efficiency whether it’s for home or business. Indoor comfort and air quality can be compromised by poor insulation, failing windows, leaky doorways, loose ductwork, plumbing leaks, or mechanical issues relating to HVAC systems. The skilled team at Astrotec can incorporate thermography into your preventative maintenance program.

Underground-Location


Underground-Location


Underground Location Services in Southern Tasmania

Did you know that Telstra has released a ‘Duty of care’ policy that emphasises their expectations that anyone undertaking excavation activities use Accredited Underground Location Services to locate Telstra lines prior to excavation?

Astrotec is a locally owned underground service location business. We offer highly skilled and trained locating professionals to solve all of your underground locating needs. 

In today’s fast paced world there are many more services being placed underground.  This increases the chances of someone accidentally digging up services which is potentially a very costly problem.

It is not uncommon for services owned by large utilities to pass through private property.  It is highly recommended to undertake a ‘Dial Before You Dig’ search of the proposed excavation site before excavation works commence.

Our Astrotec team can quickly locate services such as telecommunication, power, gas, storm water, sewer and metal water pipes.

We are accredited Telstra Plant Locators and often undertake locations on behalf of Telstra. Astrotec are also members of NULCA (National Utility Locating Contractors Association).  Our team are committed to ensuring we know and understand the most recent updates, information and developments relating to industry news and new technologies.

Astrotec also have a team of highly skilled and experienced electrical technicians. We can offer easy solutions for customers looking for both underground location and electrical services.

The types of industries that can benefit from Astrotec’s services include; civil contracting, excavation contractors,surveyors, drilling contractors, fencing contractors and in fact, anyone who needs to break the surface of the ground.

Service strikes are a very common problem and this preventable occurrence not only cost customers a lot of money, it has the potential to cause serious harm and significant disruptions to asset owners.

Let Astrotec find the services for you at a fraction of the cost of damaging equipment.  Some of the services found underground, for instance gas and power, are obviously dangerous, also; digging up these services have the potential for fatal consequences.  Ensure the safety of your employees by having the professionals locate them before you dig.
