Weir Minerals’ virtual reality-supported launch at Conexpo-Con/Agg 2017
Weir Minerals is globally launching its Ultra Fines Recovery (UFR) plant for sand production and fines recovery at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 in Las Vegas, USA – with visitors being able to use virtual reality glasses to bring the model’s workings to life.
“The Weir Minerals UFR plant is specifically engineered to provide an immediate, positive impact to operations utilising settling or tailings ponds,” says Kurt O’Bryan, global product manager for Crushing and Screening at Weir Minerals. “The potential to drastically reduce pond cleaning costs and turn a once considered waste material into a marketable, profitable product are just a few advantages of the Weir Minerals UFR plant. The product demonstrates engineering expertise and our commitment to maximising customer operations.”
Weir Minerals will also feature at the Las Vegas exhibition the Trio TP260 cone crusher, part of the Trio TP cone crusher series launched globally last year. These compact, robust crushers are built with advanced cone crusher automation technology to offer continuous high performance and application versatility. All Trio TP cone crushers feature a steep crushing chamber angle, a large crushing stroke and optimum speed to deliver fine product through high inter-particle comminution.
Weir Minerals engineering experts will also showcase a wider variety of Trio equipment including other Trio crushers, alongside Trio screens, washers, and conveyors.
The Weir Minerals team has extensive experience in the construction aggregates market and are able to counsel, design and supply customised solutions from single Trio machines to stationary or portable plants, including turnkey projects, to best suit customers’ requirements. Multiple animations featuring project solutions and the scope of design from Trio equipment will be on display on the Weir Minerals stand.
A daily highlight at the stand will be educational workshops hosted by Weir Minerals experts. The workshops will focus on recommendations to maximise the performance of crushing, screening, washing equipment and wear protection. Attendees of these workshops can enter in a draw to win two Dale Earnhardt Terrace tickets to the NASCAR race on Sunday 12 March at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Weir Minerals will also feature other key products widely used in the aggregate industry during the five-day CONEXPO-CON/AGG event. These include Cavex hydrocyclone, able to classify and produce highly saleable manufactured sand; Enduron dewatering screens; Linatex rubber wear linings; Linatex hose; Delta Industrial knife gate valves; Isogate valves; and Warman slurry pumps.
Randy Tietz, regional managing director of Weir Minerals North America, states: “Over the last few years, we have invested heavily in product development and expansion to become a competitive player in the construction aggregates market and provide our customers with a more complete solution. We are very excited about showcasing our latest products at CONEXPO-CON/AGG.”
