Weir Minerals Africa, well known as an original equipment supplier in the field of slurry pumps, is investing into its process solution division in order to bolster its capacity to optimise plants. The company’s services and products span a range of mine processes, from run-of-mine tips to tailings dams, including equipment such as crushers, pumps, cyclones, linings, hoses, conveyors and valves.

Weir Minerals Africa invests in process solution divisionAccording to Gavin Dyer, Regional Managing Director of Weir Minerals Africa, this positions Weir Minerals Africa increasingly as a total solutions partner rather than a mechanical engineering company focused on pumps. “There are still areas where Weir is known largely as an original equipment supplier in the field of slurry pumps. Our new structure and capacity will help alert customers to the many opportunities available from Weir Minerals Africa to improve plant efficiencies and performance,” he says.

The process division is growing its capacity to provide a complete process solution, adds JD Singleton, who heads the department. The company has engaged more process engineers, using these skills to optimise mine operations from pit dewatering and jaw crushing, to screening, process functions within the mill, and tailings disposal.

William Cumming, Sales Director for South Africa and SADC, adds that the company is building on Weir Minerals Africa’s extensive footprint in Africa and the Middle East, and the strategic placement of more engineers now gives customers the opportunity to have site evaluations and plant audits more readily. By providing services like condition monitoring and better inventory strategies, unplanned breakdowns can be avoided and downtime reduced, he says.

“The work of this team will raise the profile of the wider product range and ensure that customers are achieving the best possible returns from this technology. Our growing branch and service centre network provides the necessary springboard for the process engineers to get access to customer sites quicker and more often,” says Dyer.

As part of the company’s modernisation efforts, Weir Minerals Africa launched an online store a year ago. The store, weirafricastore.com, allows customers to browse, search and order Warman, Cavex, Linatex and Trio product spares.
