As Africa’s leading engineered vibratory equipment original equipment manufacturer (OEM) with a proud South African legacy stretching back to 1976, Kwatani is recognised globally for its world-class engineering and ISO 9001:2015 certified large-scale manufacturing capability. The company has an extensive vibrating screen and feeder population of over 17 000 units across commodities in more than 50 countries.
Kwatani is a Level 2 B-BBEE accredited South African company, and part of the multi-national Sandvik Group. Significantly, the company’s 17 000 m2 world class production facility has become Sandvik’s global engineering and manufacturing base for vibrating screens and feeders. Sandvik, through its global technology resources, provides access to monitoring and automation processes and R&D facilities.
Kwatani’s core differentiator is custom engineering vibrating equipment to meet unique application needs and fit any given plant footprint. The OEM’s leading-edge designs guarantee equipment structural integrity and durability ensuring minimal stockholding requirements limited to wear items only as customers do not require stock of steel sections and cross members. This results in continuous production tonnage at the lowest cost of ownership.
All vibrating equipment undergoes rigorous tests at the company’s in-house test facility. This enables customers to achieve a continuous supply of production tonnage while protecting assets and reducing total cost of ownership.
Kwatani’s vibrating equipment can weigh up to 54 t offering material throughput of up to 7 000 t/h. The largest screens are 4.3 m wide or 13 m long. A range of linear, elliptical, gyratory, circular and resonance motion screens tailored to each application is available. Vibrating screens are available in horizontal, inclined/decline and multi-slope configurations. Feeders include linear and elliptical VGF grizzly feeders, brute force feeders up to 4.8 m wide and magnetic feeders for batch feeding.
Kwatani’s premium heavy-duty exciter gearboxes are engineered and manufactured in-house to stringent quality standards as well as unbalanced motors in partnership with the oldest OEM of vibrator motors in Europe.
