OEM expands global mineral processing presence with new brand

Haver & Boecker, formerly WS Tyler and a provider of materials handling and processing systems in the extractive sector, has established a new global brand – Haver & Boecker Niagara – to combine the engineering expertise and product portfolios of its three mineral processing locations in Brazil, Canada and Germany.

In the past, the three locations acted individually for their respective regions and territories. Customers around the world will now benefit from shared innovative technology, more in-depth consultations, greater parts availability and better delivery times.

Haver & Boecker announced the formation of Haver & Boecker Niagara at bauma 2019, in Munich, Germany.

“Niagara now stands for a new, global drive in processing technology,” said Haver & Boecker OHG’s director of corporate business development Adrian Gamburgo. “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”, echoing the sound of the famous waterfalls on the border between the USA and Canada.

Due to the similarities between water running over the edge of the falls and the mined product coming off the deck of a vibrating screen, Niagara was chosen as the brand name for Haver & Boecker and WS Tyler’s vibrating screens almost 85 years ago.

“Finding the name for this entity was easy – we went back to our roots,” Gamburgo said. “The name Niagara carries so much heritage, but at the same time holds so much promise for the future.”

Haver & Boecker OHG’s managing partner Florian Festge said: “All companies that share the Haver & Boecker name are dedicated to providing premium solutions and first-class service to every industry we serve.

“Combining the best of three worlds into one processing powerhouse means only good things for our customers, allowing for improvements in terms of unique process design, state of the art engineering services, increased product quality and improved service.”

Haver & Boecker Niagara combines talents and skills in four major areas:

  • Heavy-duty scalping. Originally conceived in Germany, heavy-duty screening technologies, such as the Niagara eccentric, offer some of the lowest costs per tonne in scalping. Using this key technology, Haver & Boecker Niagara designs complete scalping plants, customised to meet every aspect of a quarrying operation’s product requirements, as well as preferences.
  • Full-circle consultation. Created in Canada, Haver & Boecker Niagara’s PROcheck invites the producer on a complete tour of its 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. PROcheck provides service tools and strategies to any customer’s plant, which include uptime warranties.
  • Wide-body screening. Innovated in Brazil, Haver & Boecker Niagara’s XL-class high capacity vibrating screen is driven by in-house designed and built exciter units targeted at improving overall screening efficiency. With a total capacity of up to 15,000 tph, the XL-class is the largest vibrating screen in the world.
  • Washing and pelletising. Haver Niagara has also introduced new approaches to washing and pelletising using the award-winning Hydro-Clean washing system and the unique Scarabaeus pelletising disc. Both technologies are designed to minimise the waste of resources by transforming materials that were previously dumped into new products for sale at attractive prices.

Sharing innovation, expertise

{{image2-a:r-w:300}}Haver & Boecker OHG managing director Peter Grotjohann was enthusiastic about the new opportunities of a worldwide portfolio for Haver & Boecker’s multinational customers.

“By sharing technology, knowledge and processes, Haver & Boecker Niagara allows our customers access to industry-leading innovations while at the same time increasing local insight and service they can only come to expect from Haver & Boecker,” he said.

Haver & Boecker Latinoamericana’s managing director Ronaldo Camargo de Souza said: “Haver & Boecker Niagara has earned the trust and respect of customers in Brazil and across Latin America with our robust, high capacity machines, tailor-made solutions and dedicated service.

“With this unity, we are looking forward to sharing our XL-class vibrating screen technology, as well as our entire portfolio of solutions, products and services with the rest of the world.”

Haver & Boecker Canada’s president Karen Thompson predicted it would be easier to share each company’s expertise and minimise redundancies in many areas of the business.

“Each location has different yet complementary strengths,” she said. “The union allows us to combine these strengths for better results for our customers and the industries we serve.”

Festge said: “Our goal is to continue to find ways to improve our customers’ businesses and daily lives, whatever industry they work in. Tapping into and combining our global network of experience gives us the ability to solve even the most unique of problems. The only question our customers and we should ask ourselves is, why did we not do this a lot earlier?”

Haver & Boecker Niagara’s first mission was exhibited at bauma in Munich.

Driven by the motto “perfect flow for our planet blue”, Haver & Boecker Niagara seeks to provide “memorable” customer experiences to its guests and visitors by taking them on virtual tours around the globe that highlight various plants and locations that have successfully minimised their impact on the environment by reducing waste and conserving resources.

Haver & Boecker Niagara falls under Haver & Boecker’s machinery division, headquartered in Oelde, Germany. Beyond the processing equipment offered by Haver & Boecker Niagara, the machinery division specialises in materials-handling technology for the cement, building materials, and mining industries. The company’s wire weaving division produces thousands of various types of wire mesh for screening, filtration, automotive applications and laboratory technology.

Haver & Boecker’s screening, washing and pelletising solutions are available through its Australian subsidiary, headquartered in Perth.
