The Halley & Mellowes Group of Companies (HMA Group) manufactures, services, and sells a wide range of capital plant equipment to a diverse range of industries. This includes mining, processing, oil and gas refineries, material handling, rail and power generation. The HMA Group have office and service facilities strategically located throughout Australia (QLD,NSW,VIC,WA), New Zealand, Indonesia and South Africa.
HMA Wear Solutions (HMA WS) is a division of the HMA Group, specialising in wear resistant materials predominately ceramic lined pipe, chutes and cyclones.
HMA Wear Solutions specialise in providing a complete engineering design service, combined with the manufacture and supply of wear resistant lined piping systems and equipment. HMA WS are the largest manufacturer of ceramic lined piping systems and equipment in Australia. The first ceramic pipe was supplied by HMA WS in 1978 giving us over four decades of experience in the supply of lined pipe and wear resistant equipment. This experience has enabled us to overcome typical design and manufacturing constraints associated with ceramic lined pipe and wear resistant equipment. We are leaders in innovation, quality of design and manufacturing.
HMA WS developed and introduced what is now recognised as the Australian standards for the ceramic pipe specification. The manufacture of ceramic lined pipe and wear resistant equipment is not a simple process and there are several crucial techniques that must not be compromised to ensure correct and consistent high-quality products are produced. The outcome of this process is the maximised operating life and performance of the lining system.
HMA WS has developed a unique in-house manufacturing and quality control system to ensure this is achieved. The most common wear lining materials applied include Polyurethane, Rubber, Basalt, WearTech, Alumina, and Siliconised Silicone Carbide (SiSiC). In conjunction with our global supply chain we have access to all commercially available wear lining materials.
Our achievement is the reduction in plant operating cost through improved design, optimal lining material selection and unique manufacturing processes.
