MINERAL PROCESSING: Haver & Boecker launches Niagara brand

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. – Haver and Boecker has established its global brand Haver and Boecker Niagara to combine the engineering expertise and product portfolios of its three mineral processing locations in Brazil, Canada and Germany. Customers around the world will benefit from shared innovative technology, more in-depth consultations, greater parts availability and better delivery times.

“Niagara now stands for a new, global drive in processing technology,” said Adrian Gamburgo, director of corporate business development at Haver and Boecker OHG. “These three Niagara locations will join forces and together focus on developing innovations in screening, washing and pelletizing technology, as well as increasing their regional service reach.”

The word Niagara means “thundering water,” echoing the sound made by the famous waterfalls on the border between the United States 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 Niagara name was chosen as the brand name for Haver and Boecker’s and W.S. Tyler’s vibrating screens almost 85 years ago.

“All companies that share the Haver and Boecker name are dedicated to providing premium solutions and first class service to every industry we serve,” says Florian Festge, Haver and Boecker OHG managing partner. “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 and Boecker Niagara combines talents and skills in four major areas:

  • Heavy Duty Scalping — Originally born in Germany, the heavy duty screening technologies, such as Niagara eccentric, break barriers when it comes to the lowest cost per tonne in scalping. Using this key technology, Haver and Boecker Niagara designs complete scalping plants, customized to meet every aspect of the customer’s product requirements as well as personal preference.
  • Full Circle Consultation — Created in Canada, Haver and Boecker Niagara’s signature PROcheck 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 revolutionary F class. It then covers high performance screen media deck set-ups using Tyler engineered media. PROcheck adds a wealth of service tools and strategies to any customer’s plant, which even include uptime warranties.
  • Wide Body Screening — Innovated in Brazil, Haver and Boecker Niagara made a mark on the industry with its signature XL class high capacity vibrating screen. This powerful machine is driven by the in-house designed and built exciter units targeted at improving overall screening efficiency. With a total capacity of up to 15,000 t/h, the XL class is the biggest vibrating screen in the world.
  • Washing and Pelletizing — Haver and Boecker Niagara has also introduced new approaches to washing and pelletizing using the award winning Hydro-Clean washing system and the one-of-a-kind Scarabaeus pelletizing disc. Both technologies are designed to minimize the waste of resources by transforming materials which were previously dumped into new products and allowing them to be sold at attractive prices.

Karen Thompson, president of the Canadian operation, emphasized how going forward it will be easier to share each company’s expertise and minimize redundancies in many areas of the business. “Each location has different yet complementary strengths. The union allows us to combine these strengths for better results for our customers and the industries we serve,” Thompson said.

Haver and Boecker Niagara’s first mission was to exhibit at this year’s bauma trade fair in Munich. Driven by its motto “Perfect Flow for Our Planet Blue,” Haver and Boecker Niagara introduced real customer experiences to its guests and visitors by taking them on a virtual tour around the globe by telling them about various plants and locations, all of which decided to minimize their impact on our beautiful plant by reducing the waste of resources.
