Bore Head Works

Bore Head Works

UON’s dedicated fabrication division creates the headworks required to support the location specific bore pumping configuration.

  • Freestanding skid-mounted or loose assembly fabricated steel is manufactured to AS4100 Structural and pressure pipework AS4041 Class 3.
  • Potable water stainless steel (AS/NZS1554 Part6) or standard dewatering steel with galvanised surface treatment to AS/NZS4680. In-house hydro testing confirmation.

Pressure rating is to the client’s request.

Standard assembled instrumentation is utilised to provide measurements of flow/volume and pressure (either 4-20mA or Modbus output), as well a mechanical operation valves for isolation / flow modulation and anti-back flow check valving.

Options to typical configurations include sample ports with Maric flow reduction, scour valves,m along with water quality analysis (pH/EC sensing).


UON designed, engineered and certified Bore Head plates for heavy duty use are fabricated to AS4041 Class 3. Supporting suspended loads up to 8 tonnes and flows rates up to 75L/s, the plates feature NDT inspected lugs for single or 2 point lifting.

The plates include access for bore pump power cables up to 150mm² and dip tubes for level sensing or manual dipping.
