Weir entrenches Trio® comminution range in Africa

Swift progress in rolling out and supporting the Trio range of crushing and screening equipment has been an important part of Weir Minerals Africa’s solutions-driven focus in the quarrying sector, according to process director JD Singleton.

Having acquired the product line in mid-2015, the company established its own direct route to market in South Africa for its Trio range by mid-2015. It has put in place local teams to deal with aftermarket and product support, developing a local Trio-specific stockholding of what is today worth close to R100-million to underpin quick and efficient response times.

ON THE COVER

ModernQuarrying OctNov 2017Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology recently supplied, installed and commissioned a CS440 secondary stage crusher at Afrimat’s Lyttelton Dolomite operation in Centurion. Selected for its size, the unit is pushing out product at an impressive rate. Formerly known as the S4800 cone crusher, the new unit is characterised by its large intake capability and high throughput in relation to size. Weighing in at 19,3 t with a maximum power of 220 kW, it is a large machine and it is not often that a quarry takes a crusher of this size.

MQ visits the Vredendal operation to find that its mineral deposit is among the best quality of its kind in South Africa.
