2.3 Water Supply Industry

Supply of Billabong Hydraulic Rams to end users. The Rams have been manufactured by Misal Technologies Pty. Ltd. since 1986. The Billabong Hydraulic
Ram is used widely in Australia and overseas. The original technology for the Billabong Hydraulic Ram was developed by Messrs. John Danks in 1855.

2.4 New Technologies for Timber Processing

Over the last 13 years Misal has undertaken R&D activities into new timber processing technologies. This project is now completed and ready for
commercialisation. The technology is based on the Microwave Irradiation of timber resulting in capabilities that utilise a very low quality timber and convert it
into a high value product. The new high-value added products produced by this technology, have significantly higher property parameters than comparable
products currently on the market. This technology has a global application and includes the following main components listed below:

• Microwave Generators
• Wave Guides, Tuners & Associated Components
• Microwave Kilns for Drying Timber
• Processing Equipment
• Control Software


3.1 MV & HV Electrical Equipment (Major)

• Medium & High Voltage Switchgear
• Mines Switchgear
• Portable Prefabricated Substations - MV to LV & HV to MV
• Power Transformers - up to 240MVA: 500kV
• Cast Resin Transformers - up to 2.5MVA: 35kV
• RMU’s & Connectors
• Ducted Bus Ways - up to 6,300A

3.2 Electrical Components (Small)

• Switching Components - LBS’s, VCB’s, Disconnectors, Earthing Switches, MCCB’s, Earth Leakage CB’s, AC Contactors, Relays
• Static Components - CT’s, VT’s, Cut Out Fuses, Capacitors, Surge Arresters, Reactors
• Meter Test Equipment (Power, Current, Frequency)
• Cable Terminations & Kits
