MINExpo Preview: Weir Minerals


TP900Weir Minerals will exhibit its world-class mining solutions at MINExpo 2016 at booth #5002. The company will use the opportunity of the show to show its Trio Top Performance cone crusher range to the mining and construction aggregates market. At the show the company will showcase the Trio TP900 cone crusher and will offer a pre-release preview of its much-anticipated remote monitoring technology.

Combining aggressive crushing action, high crushing force and high power, Weir’s new generation of top-performing cone crushers takes the user to the next level of cone crushing.

“Throughout Weir Minerals, we strive to provide customers with the best possible equipment to meet their crushing needs, which is why we developed the Trio TP cone crusher range,” said Kurt O’Bryan, global product manager for crushing and screening at Weir Minerals. “The new TP cone crushers operate at a higher speed than their predecessors which provides higher reduction with better shaped material.”

The TP900 cone crusher is part of the Trio TP series of crushers launched globally earlier this year. The Trio TP900 cone crusher operates at a higher pivot point and thrower than its predecessor, providing higher reduction with better-shaped material.

“The Trio TP900 cone crusher is a clear demonstration of our advancement in cone crusher design,” said O’Bryan. “The Trio TP series cone crushers are all high capacity machines with advanced performance features in hydraulics, automation and head motion. The goal of these new machines is to apply a robust and reliable design to a versatile range of applications.”

In addition to this new product launch, Weir Minerals will introduce new technology featured in the imminent Trio TP1400 cone crusher. This advanced technology will be presented to visitors through a futuristic hologram, providing visitors with a virtual, 360-degree preview of this innovative technology. “This exciting technology provides a glimpse into the future of large, high-capacity cone crushers,” said O’Bryan.

Visitors at the Weir Minerals booth will also see a pre-release preview of its latest technology in remote-monitoring systems. This new technology will enable users to obtain operational data in real time, ensuring optimum performance and efficiency of their mill circuit.

Weir Minerals engineering experts will showcase the capabilities of Warman slurry pumps, the market leader in slurry pumping technology. The booth will feature a variety of Warman slurry pumps including, mill circuit pumps, submersible pumps, and the latest pumping technology.

“The strength of our Warman slurry pump range lies in the superiority of our advanced hydraulic designs and our high performing wear and corrosion resistant materials,” said John Otten, global product manager for pumps at Weir Minerals. The booth will host the Warman MC650 mill circuit duty slurry pump, incorporating the latest in hard alloy and elastomer technology, proven to extend wear life in highly abrasive and corrosive slurries.

Weir Minerals will also feature other key products widely used in the mining industry during this three-day event. These include Enduron high-pressure grinding rolls, GEHO pumps, Delta Industrial knife gate valves, Cavex hydrocyclones, Linatex premium rubber and many more.

Ricardo Garib, divisional managing director of Weir Minerals, stated, “Over the last four years, we have invested heavily in product development and expansion, providing customers with a more complete solution across the mill circuit. We are very excited about showcasing our latest products at MINExpo and sharing our technological advancements with visitors. We look forward to welcoming you all at booth 5002.”
