The company stated that the brand combines the engineering expertise and product portfolios of its three mineral processing locations in Brazil, Canada and Germany.
Haver & Boecker Niagara features innovations developed in South America to help improve efficiency and reduce resource consumption. According to the company, customers around the world will benefit from shared technology, more in-depth consultations, greater parts availability and better delivery times as a result of the new entity.
Haver & Boecker Niagara combines talents and skills in four major areas: heavy duty scalping, wide body screening, washing and pelletising, all complemented by the company's PROcheck service to help operations maximise profit, productivity and proficiency.
Haver & Boecker introduced the brand Haver & Boecker Niagara to South America during Exposibram 2019 in September.
Clayton Carvalho, managing director of the Brazil location, said: "Haver & Boecker Niagara has earned the trust and respect of customers in Brazil and across South America with our robust, high-capacity machines, tailor-made solutions and dedicated service. With this unity, we will help our customers reduce resource consumption while maintaining profitability."
South America-developed technology plays a key part in Haver & Boecker Niagara's success. One of those products is the eccentric vibrating screen, a version of the company's F-Class technology, dedicated for natural moisture applications. The equipment uses a dry, vibratory classification system instead of wet screening to remove fines in high natural moisture situations, eliminating tailing dams in those instances. This reduces tailing dams and water use while increasing production capacity. The F-Class accomplishes this via an advanced eccentric shaft design, supported by four high-performance spherical roller bearings that allow for a constant amplitude and high specific acceleration; something concentric, two-bearing vibrating screens cannot accomplish.
Haver & Boecker Niagara's new Ty-Deck Ultra is another product that can help to reduce or eliminate water use. The polyurethane screen media features an H-shaped opening design that increases vibration on the screen deck, improving stratification and reducing the need for a rinse screen.
The XL-Class is another key Haver & Boecker Niagara technology in South America. The vibrating screen combines advanced exciter drive technology with a wide rectangular or banana-shaped body to offer better screening action and more throughput. Larger than any other vibrating screen from Haver & Boecker Niagara, the XL-Class is intended for high tonnage production rates, yet designed for low maintenance, easy operation and excellent reliability. Traditionally developed for copper and iron ore, the XL-Class is suitable for almost any application requiring above average production rates and/or above standard process reliability.
Haver & Boecker Niagara incorporates its Haver Exciters into the XL-Class. The technology has a large number of weight configurations contribute to improved screening performance, including one of the largest static moment ranges on the market, minimal maintenance and long service life due to the exciters' strength and advanced sealing system.
