Weba Chute Systems is world-renowned for ensuring that its custom-engineered chutes add immediate and significant value to customers’ profitability, uptime and on-site health and safety. The company’s scientific approach to the dynamics of bulk materials handling at transfer points has been fine-tuned over decades of experience, with its success demonstrated in almost 5,000 chutes installed globally.
A key principle at the heart of Weba designs is controlled flow, ensuring longer wear life of chutes and components, more uptime, less dust and less noise. Chute solutions are configured to control the direction, flow and velocity of the required volume and type of material. With this customised approach, technical teams analyse the specifics of application including throughput requirements, the material’s size and shape, and the belt’s width and speed.
In-house engineers use the latest software to convert these considerations into detailed designs, and to virtually model the flow of material to prove the optimal configuration. These designs are then transformed into robust solutions through quality manufacturing practices at the company’s ISO 9001:2015 accredited facility in Wadeville. Its quality focus allows Weba Chute Systems to provide customers with performance guarantees, set in accordance with operational and applications parameters, to give reliable results and peace of mind.
Not only does the performance of Weba Chute Systems streamline mining and industrial operations for a healthier bottom line – it also supports environmental and social sustainability by enhancing health and safety in the workplace and adjacent communities. Weba chutes improve dust control and mitigated noise, helping customers meet minimum compliance standards while improving worker health. With sustainability in mind, Weba Chute Systems has installed a 160 kW solar plant at its facilities, meeting its peak demand with renewable energy and thereby reducing its carbon footprint.
