Perrott Engineering’s services cover virtually all areas of hydraulics, as well as oil and grease lubrication systems. Our diverse range of modern workshop machinery allows us to also offer precision machining as a secondary service to our primary business of hydraulics.

Our services can be divided into four separate fields:

Hydraulic System Design and Drafting Service

Full systems or individual components can be designed to comply with all relevant standards:

  • Specialist hydraulic cylinders
  • Winches for any application
  • Hydraulic power packs from1Kw to 1000Kw
  • Hydraulic manifolds in steel, aluminium and stainless steel
  • Special hydraulic fittings and adaptors in all material types
  • Gearbox offline lubrication, cooling and filtration systems
  • Grinding Mill lubrication system upgrades.

Our sales team comprises tradesmen with years of hands-on experience.

Hydraulic Components
We can source and supply any pumps, motors, valves and other hydraulic items. We are the Far North Queensland authorised distributors and service centre for industry leaders including Bosch Rexroth, Hydac, Sauer Sundstrand and Danfoss, and have full access to all other manufacturers.

Hose and Fittings
A comprehensive range of Alfagomma and Ryco hose and fittings is held in stock. We offer a mobile 24-hour,7-day a week service for onsite and breakdown situations.

Tube and Piping
We stock an extensive range of metric and imperial hydraulic line tube in stainless steel and plated steel, plus the fittings to suit.

Audit and Advisory Service
Our comprehensive Site Audit Reporting and Advisory Service for hydraulic or lube system problems can uncover the cause of recurring and consistent problems or plant failure. Audits can cover one specific section or the entire range of hydraulic and lubrication systems.

Clean Room
Our clean room is pressurised with filtered air, and fitted with filtered re-circulating solvent wash down benches for the assembly of all critical components.

Cylinder Rebuilding
Cylinder pull down benches to 12 metres long and 10-tonne capacity with powered hydraulic spanner for rod nut removal and re-torqueing.

Diagnostic Testing
Our workshop and service vehicles are fitted with analogue and digital portable hydraulic testing equipment for flow, pressure, temperature and speed testing.

General Hydraulics
Our specialised team performs all general hydraulic service and repair work on the full spectrum of equipment.

Hose Testing
Custom-made, 700Bar portable hose test rig with NATA traceable certified gauge.

Horizontal honing up to 7 metres in length, 45mm to 450mm diameter.

24-inch diameter plate lapping machine.

Oil Condition Monitoring
Portable particle counting units test and monitor the cleanliness of hydraulic and lube oil systems. These can carry out live contamination particle counting in all oils, providing results in minutes.

On Site Servicing
We offer extensive experience in marine, mining and industrial site work including complete ship’s crane and hydraulic re-fits; programmed maintenance of mine and industrial hydraulic systems; mine mill lube systems; liner handlers and general shutdown hydraulic work; equipment re-hosing; breakdown attendance; and new installations.

System Flushing & Filtering
Portable system flushing and filtering units with variable output flows give fully controlled flushing and filtration of any circuit. Used with the portable particle counters, these can flush and continuously monitor any system.

Service Vehicles
We operate a fleet of service vehicles including two 4WDs equipped for remote locations.

Test Facilities
Our test room is fitted with two test benches to fully test and document the performance of virtually all hydraulic components. One test unit is diesel powered with a capacity to test to 350kW, and the second is variable speed electric of 75kW capacity.

Precision Machining and Manufacturing
Our trained personnel can design and manufacture special cylinders, winches, manifolds, valve blocks, lubrication systems, and power packs.  Major plant in our modern machine shop includes:

  • Mill/turn CNC Lathe for intricate profile and repetition turning
  • Centre Lathes to 1080 mm diameter swing by 5000 mm between centres
  • Horizontal and vertical milling
  • Surface Grinding
  • Vertical Slotting Machine with 300mm Stroke
  • Hand tooling for all general engineering work including broaches for key cutting
  • Welding Mig, Tig, AC and DC electrode machines to 500 AMP; full range of hand-held and machine gas cutting equipment, Carbon Arc gougingand Thermal Lancing.

Mazak VTC800 30SR Vertical Machining Centre
VTC-800/30 SR provides multiple-face milling and 5-axis simultaneous machining thanks to the 110 degree swinging 18000 rpm spindle and optional NC table. The traveling column design with stationary table is extremely effective for large, long workpieces.  See this machine in action here.
