Leading vibrating screen and feeder original-equipment manufacturer Kwatani will be showcasing customised products big and small at this year’s Electra Mining Africa exhibition, with live demonstrations showing the value of its laboratory test screen.

With a replica of the nose of its widest screen at its exhibition stand, visitors will sense the scale of these large ‘beasts’ currently at work in the mining industry. They deliver solid performance not unlike rugby star Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira, whose image will grace the stand. These large screens measure 4.3 m wide and 11 m long and are operating in the most arduous screening conditions.

“The design and construction of these screens is a clear indication of Kwatani’s technical capability, with quality ensured by our ISO 9001:2015 certification,” says Kwatani CEO Kim Schoepflin. “Not only must they be robust and fit-for-purpose, but they must also achieve continuous tonnage at the lowest cost of ownership.”

In addition to desktop simulation in the design of customised screening equipment, Schoepflin also emphasises the importance of physical testing to ensure that the equipment delivers the results expected. A versatile test screen will be on show – a metallurgist’s dream – to give visitors an appreciation of how material can be tested as part of designing the optimal solution for the most challenging screening applications.

The test screen allows all the key screening parameters – such as the speed, deck angle, drive angle, amplitude and screening media – to be changed as part of the research process.

On the other end of the size scale on the stand will be a 30-inch round separator, demonstrating the gentle, effective spiral screening motion that reduces breakages in products of high value. At Electra Mining Africa, however, visitors will be able to sample the separated products: sweets.

This unit is part of Kwatani’s range of smaller screens and separators for industrial and food-related applications, now processing almost 50 different materials and products from sugar and rice to gold slurry and bunker sand.

Schoepflin highlights the importance of suppliers aligning with the Mining Charter: “We are proud to be the first – and still the only – manufacturer of vibrating equipment to be black-owned, allowing us to make a valuable contribution to our mining customers’ transformation efforts.”
