The new Haver & Boecker Niagara brand combines its three mineral processing companies: Haver Niagara, Haver & Boecker Canada, and Haver & Boecker Latinoamericana
Haver & Boecker has established a new global brand - Haver & Boecker Niagara - to combine the engineering capabilities and product portfolios of its three mineral processing locations in Brazil, Canada and Germany.
The three locations previously acted individually for their respective regions and territories. Haver & Boecker says that customers around the world will benefit from shared innovative technology, more in-depth consultations, greater parts availability and better delivery times.
The company adds that the Niagara brand will combine its expertise in four main areas.
Firstly in heavy duty scalping (which was originally based in Germany), including screening technologies such as Niagara eccentric.
The full circle consultation operation, established in Canada, incorporates Haver & Boecker Niagara’s PROcheck that invites the customer on a complete tour of their own screening process. It starts with a review of the process design, including the application of the correct vibrating screen, such as the F-Class. It then covers high-performance screen media deck set-ups using Tyler engineered media.
The wide body screening operation, set up in Brazil, provides the XL-Class high-capacity vibrating screen. This machine is driven by the in-house-designed-and-built exciter units targeted at improving overall screening efficiency. The XL-Class has a total capacity of up to 15,000 tonnes per hour.
The fourth main area to feature under the Niagara brand is washing & pelletising, including the Hydro-Clean washing system and the Scarabaeus pelletising disc. Both technologies are designed to minimise the waste of resources by transforming materials which were previously dumped into new products and allowing them to be sold at attractive prices.
“Niagara now stands for a new, global drive in processing technology,” said Adrian Gamburgo, director of corporate business development at Haver & Boecker. “These three Niagara locations will join forces and together focus on developing innovations in screening, washing and pelletising technology, as well as increasing their regional service reach.”
The word Niagara means 'thundering water', which H&B says echoes the sound made by the famous water falls on the border between the US and Canada. Due to the similarities between the water running over the edge of the falls and the mined product coming off of the deck of a vibrating screen, the company says the Niagara name was chosen as the brand name for Haver & Boecker’s and W.S. Tyler’s vibrating screens almost 85 years ago.
Haver & Boecker Niagara falls under the machinery division of Haver & Boecker, headquartered in Oelde, Germany.
