Quiet but powerful REF: MMPR 561

Benefits to the industry: Rulmeca Motorised Pulleys available through Melco are safe, powerful, compact, quiet and energy efficient.

Sustainability: The rugged design and exceptional build quality allow for power efficiencies of up to 97%.

Maintenance: The pulley requires only the recommended oil and oil seal changes and service intervals may be extended by using only uncontaminated synthetic oil.

Address the mess REF: MMPR 560

Benefits to the industry: The iCerMax unit offers the complete solution to addressing bulk tank contamination (both particle and water).

Maintenance: It does so cost-effectively with long maintenance intervals, low running costs and easy installation.

Sustainability: You achieve 100% sustainable filtration and condition monitoring due to the inherent characteristics of the Wonderstone ceramic depth filtration medium.


Fully compliant REF: MMPR 557

Benefits to the industry: APE Pumps offers API 610 DSHF double suction pumps. These horizontal, double suction, between bearing pumps are designed for use in critical services. DSHF pumps are fully compliant with API 610 8th edition.

Features include between bearing design to minimise deflection at mechanical seals, double suction impeller for axial balance, oil mist or oil purge bearing lubrication, circular bearing housing mounting for maximum bearing support as well as finned bearing housings to maximise heat dissipation.

Pump power REF: MMPR 554

Benefits to the industry: Viking universal seal pumps are heavy-duty foot-mounted pumps with an enlarged bearing housing. This allows the user to replace seals or change seal technologies without removing the pump. Available in 12 sizes, with stainless steel, steel, ductile iron or cast iron construction, other features include thrust-bearing adjustment set, pressure relief valve standard and multiple port locations.

The power of air REF: MMPR 553

Benefits to the industry: Sulzer Hydromining is the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of the pneumatic drill. With set requirements and the understanding and knowledge of water hydraulics, the Sulzer ADD rock drill has been designed to operate with air and uses only water for lubrication. No oil fogging is present during drilling, therefore no harmful oil vapours are inhaled. Noise levels are at the acceptable requirements.

Sustainability: The ADD has a water shut-off valve that saves water by restricting the flushing water when the machine is not in operation.

Real recovery REF: MMPR 552

Benefits to the industry: Weir Minerals is gaining acceptance in the global sand and aggregates sector following the expansion of its comminution offering with the inclusion of the Trio product range. An example of this is that Weir Minerals recently supplied all of the equipment for a large scale, dewatering sand plant to the Middle East’s leading quarry operator Stevin Rock LLC.

The new minerals plant will assist Stevin Rock to increase the recovery of water, one of the country’s most valuable resources. It will further enable the water recovered to be reused, thus saving costs. In addition to this, the plant will upgrade the fine aggregate product to internationally accepted standards, which will increase the value of the product and their revenue stream.
