Visitors to this year’s Electra Mining Africa exhibition will be in for a feast of technology at the Weir Minerals Africa stand; particularly hard to miss will be the seven-metre-high crushing station featuring a high-performance Trio cone crusher.

“We are reminding visitors and customers that Weir Minerals Africa – well known for our pump technology – has transformed into an integrated solutions provider in mineral processing,” says Weir Minerals Africa process manager Hoosen Essack.

“With our extensive footprint across Africa, we are adding even more value through this growing range of offerings. Underpinning our service levels is our process expertise that equips us to partner closely with customers in finding answers to their daily challenges.”

Among the other items on display will be a large Cavex hydrocyclone with a substantial 1 500 mm diameter and weighing 5 t.

With the company’s leading position in pumping equipment, the stand will also display the impressive Warman 450MCR pump, measuring 2.5 m in diameter.

Essack highlights the strategic importance of the company’s process department, which is staffed with experts who work closely with customers on efficiency and other issues, whether on a particular item of equipment or an entire comminution circuit.

“This capacity allows us to provide enhanced support to customers on their plants, taking our role well beyond just supplying product,” he says. “This centralised team of experts is available to all our branches, so customers can always be assured of skilled input on challenging problems and equipment choices.”

Essack emphasises the value of specialised tools employed by Weir Minerals, such as the JKSimMet software to simulate comminution and classification circuits, in helping customers select the appropriate solutions for their mineral processing plants.

“To consolidate our continuous improvement efforts and stay at the leading edge of technology development, research and development is a strong focus for Weir Minerals,” he says. “Weir Minerals as a leading global player also has centres of excellence around the world to focus on each particular field. While South Africa focuses on screen performance, for instance, the US focuses on comminution equipment and centrifugal pumps.”
