Newest edition to world famous range gets global launch in Europe.

Weir Minerals is to launch the latest edition in its range of Warman Centrifugal Pumps – the WGR Slurry Pump – in Europe this summer.

The WGR designs, incorporating Weir Minerals’ market leading Linatex rubber, have been specifically designed for wear resistance to abrasive slurry-pumping.

The pump is optimised for sand and aggregates production processes and also has applications across many areas of industrial minerals and lighter mineral processing applications.

The WGR Pump includes several new innovative features which reduce internal turbulence and minimise power draw.

The pump is designed with large-diameter impellers to optimise performance, promote efficiency and prolong lifetime.

The casing design of the WGR provides easy access to internal parts for servicing to ensure repairs can be made quickly and downtime minimised.

The WGR is available in nine different sizes, from the WGR 35 mm to the WGR 250 mm, with the largest pump capable of delivering a flow rate of more than 1,200 m3/h.

Weir Minerals has been testing the WGR’s performance in operation at selected sites across Europe over the past two years and feedback from clients has been positive across the board.

The WGR will be available in other Weir Minerals locations around the world later in the year.

Harvinder Bhabra, senior product manager at Weir Minerals Europe, said: “Slurry Pumps are at the heart of modern extraction processes, so their reliability is crucial to entire site operations. But these demanding requirements must be balanced with a financially sustainable cost model.

“We have used the latest, innovative technology within the WGR design to support the challenges of our clients while it has been built to outperform and outlast its rivals.

“The WGR sets out to deliver exceptional performance and minimal downtime at the lowest cost of operation, making it a worthy addition to the 40-year old Warman family.”

Other features of the new WGR design include:

· A unique, innovative remote-adjusting D gland assembly, as well as the traditional packed gland, and centrifugal expeller options

· Removable suction front door on larger sizes, allowing ease of removal of the impeller and gland seal

· Removable discharge adaptor to allow removal of the suction casing without disturbing the discharge pipework

· Impeller-release collar
