Weir’s Cavex Cylone Brand Reaches 20-year Milestone
The streamlined feed chamber is still in use. When Weir Group acquired Warman International in 1999, it came with a myriad of improvements and modifications that Weir said were designed to ensure Cavex hydrocyclones continued to provide excellent wear life and maximum productivity.
In 2010, Weir Group acquired Linatex, which brought with it a range of highly specialized dewatering hydrocyclones and rubber products for lining. This was significant for Cavex hydrocyclones because it enhanced the portfolio and improved hydrocyclone wear rates.
Last year, Weir Minerals introduced the Cavex 700CVX hydrocyclone, which it said is designed to achieve up to 50% higher throughput capacity than other competitor cyclones in the 26-in.-diameter range due to its larger inlet and vortex finder configuration.
Weir Minerals said it also is set to redefine hydrocyclone efficiency again with the development of the new Synertrex monitoring system, which allows users to obtain operational data in real time to ensure optimum performance and efficiency of their mill circuit.
According to Weir, today there are more than 26,000 Cavex hydrocyclones operating throughout the globe, making up more than a quarter of the global market share.
