Increasing Uptime with our Process Expertise
Weir Minerals’ process expertise and new technology increase up-time and production by 35%
Oranje Mynbou en Vervoer (OMV), a mining operation in South Africa, was looking to upgrade its sand wash plant.

Weir Minerals introduced new comminution technology and a number of products into the plant’s processes to increase capacity and optimise the entire process for the customer. The plant immediately experienced better up-time as a result of the longer component wear life.
