The acquisition allows Weir to provide increased classification and a greater processing range. Key products include the Aspir coarse and fine centrifuges combining high-quality components with one of the industry’s most advanced drive mechanisms to maximize service life. These include wedge wire screens, flat panels, dense medium cyclones, sieve bends, underpans and ceramic repair compounds.

Weir Minerals also has service centers close to coalfields in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Indonesia while offering aftermarket expertise with the acquisition of the Aspir business.

“We are now able to respond to our customers’ needs much faster,” said Trench. “We’ve had situations since the acquisition where I’ve been able to have a technician on a mine site within 30 minutes of a customer call, which could never have happened before.”
