What Our Clients Say
"Martin Donnelly Pty Ltd, electrical services, has been involved in the commercial construction sector in the ACT for 15 years. After years of oxy / Acetylene welding cable to cable connections, with the associated inefficiency and waste, we were keen to find a better way. The ERICO CADWELD provided the solution we were looking for. Its moulds provide and quick and efficient way to make horizontal X-style and lapped connections on either concentric stranded or solid cable. We have seen a marked improvement in efficiency – the CADWELD connection allows the connections to be made in half the time – and reduction in waste cable. The CADWELD ONE SHOT, a single use ceramic mould, has lived up to its promise and made easy the production of a permanent exothermic connection to a ground rod. The cost of training our personnel was rapidly recovered with significant savings in terms of time and reductions in waste cable. We would have no hesitation in recommending the ERICO CADWELD system."

Facilities can be added to the chargers at minimal cost such as a discharge test, monitoring of the centre point of the batteries to early detect battery failure. Other facilities such as earth fault detection and the like can also be added. If there is something special you require just ask.

Quick Earth Continuity and Earth Leakage Relays Solution: As a Rio-Tinto’s subcontractor for Dewatering Projects UON had encountered major issues with an existing model of Earth Continuity Relay and Earth Leakage Relay proposed by the client Rio Tinto on the latter’s Western Turner Site. UON had tried everything possible to remedy the problem but in vain and sought help from Perth Colterlec through Gary Allen. The response in obtaining suitable Bramco branded replacements was prompt and precise. Perth Colterlec did exactly what was expected and more. UON was able to provide a very quick solution to Rio Tinto. The units are functioning with no issues at Western Turner.
