Weba Chute systems has invested thousands into understanding the dynamics of bulk materials handling transfer points.
Employing sophisticated 3D computer software for our system designs, we follow this up with quality manufacture in our ISO 9001:2015 accredited facility,” he continues. “However, this capacity is only as valuable as the data that we get from our customers, so a close working relationship is a vital cornerstone for a successful outcome.”
As such, Mark emphasises that each project begins with a hands-on approach adopted by the engineering team who, together, are able to leverage many years of field experience. During a site visit at the start of the process, the team identifies transfer issues and collaborates closely with the customer to develop a tailor-made solution.
“Cost factors are front-of-mind for all stakeholders in the mining sector, so we have to ensure a solution that will increase the return on investment within as short a period as possible,” he says.
It is also insufficient to view the design of transfer chutes in isolation from the broader working environment. Taking a systems approach to bulk solids handling design is essential to ensure operational characteristics are matched throughout the plant. This is a prerequisite to ensuring smooth materials flow through the entire plant.
“Optimising chute performance is a process of defining the geometry of the chute to reliably convey material from one point to another,” explains Mark. “The complexity of chute performance means that chute design should be carried out at the plant design stage, and not added as a conveyance to transfer material from one point to another at a later stage.”
To ensure customer confidence and assurance that the product will meet its stated objectives, Weba Chute Systems provides process and performance guarantees, backed up by its substantial support network. These guarantees, set in accordance with operational and application parameters, are underpinned by quality manufacturing, a non-negotiable element of all products emanating from the company’s manufacturing facility.
“The results of our research, engineering and quality focus is reduced maintenance requirements in the final product, as well as improved transfer conditions, longer conveyor belt life and higher throughput,” Mark concludes.
