Our transfer chute product line consists of
two main systems:
Providing great financial savings to the end user, the Cascade Chute System is designed to carefully control material flow, velocity, and direction. This system solves nearly all problems associated with transfer points.
Typically recommended where materials have a high clay coefficient ratio, the Superflow Liner System incorporates all the design principles of the Cascade Chute System but uses liners rather than a dead box system.
The reason why the Weba Chute has become so efficient and preferred in the mining industry lies with the Cascade Chute System. With no need for a liner to protect the chute, the key to the success of this chute lies in the ingenious design. While other chutes simply allow materials to tumble down the chute, this method can cause serious damage thus resulting in more maintenance and a shorter lifespan.
Weba Chute Systems should not be compared to conventional chute systems as these locally manufactured systems adopt a completely different approach to the control and handling of bulk materials. Mark Baller, managing director of Weba Chute Systems, says these are transfer points are an improved alternative to traditional chute systems.
The Weba Chute System is based on the lined ‘super tube’ or cascade system, whereby much of the material runs on material at all times. The bottom layer of particles in the product stream moves in a tumbling motion and subsequently does not slide down the chute. This not only reduces the wear significantly, but in many cases the lip remains completely covered by material and never needs replacement.
Weba Chute Systems takes this means of controlling material movement a step further by designing the internal angle of the transfer chute to match the product discharge velocity with the belt speed, which eliminates or greatly reduces spillage. Extensive experience and technical expertise, coupled with applications knowledge, has positioned Weba Chute Systems as the leader in its field, Baller notes.
Each Weba Chute System is custom designed for a specific application, considering factors such as belt width, belt speed, material size and shape, as well as throughput. Other benefits include reduced production losses due to less blockages, significantly reduced spillage and vastly improved safety levels. Inspection and maintenance are facilitated by easy access, while the Weba Chute System does not require ongoing supervision, which translates into reduced labour and related.
The WEBA Chute withstands a tremendous amount of weight with the impact of every load of mining material in need of transporting. The chute liner, while made of from the most appropriate materials to get the job done properly, but they generally don’t last a lifetime. This means that when the time comes for the chute liner to be replaced, you need to make sure that you replace it with the very best the industry has to offer.
Our chute liners are exceptionally cost-effective and they are made to fit the Superflow Liner System.
The whole purpose of the liners is to protect the chute by cushioning the materials which are being transported. They are also capable of stopping materials from falling off of the chute and causing damage to the conveyor belt and the various loading areas. Weba designs, manufactures and installs liners while we can also assist with maintenance such as replacing.
All manufacturing processes are observed, verified, and documented. This information and documentation form an integral part of our Quality Assurance process and the specific chute history, ensuring you get a customized, reliable product for improved material transfer.
Weba also uses fabrication contractors in Chile, Turkey, North America, and Australia. All our contractors abide by our strict QC procedures.
Our experience providing complete chute solutions for every type of transfer job around the world makes us the global leader
