:: Weir Group and KHD Humboldt Wedag International Announce Agreement to Market KHD High Pressure Grinding Rolls
The Weir Group PLC (‘Weir’) and KHD Humboldt Wedag International AG. (“KHD”) announce that Weir Minerals has been appointed as KHD’s exclusive worldwide agent and recommended service provider for high pressure grinding rolls (“HPGRs”) for minerals processing applications.
High pressure grinding rolls, also called roller presses, have been used in mineral processing plants for many years, in the treatment of iron ore, copper, gold, diamond and various other ore types. High pressure grinding is achieved by an advanced type of grinding roll, compressing the raw ore to release the valuable particles. KHD is an originator of this technology and has been successfully marketing HPGRs in the cement and limestone markets since 1984 and in the mining markets since 1986. Using HPGRs has been shown to improve throughput while also decreasing operational costs and power consumption especially when compared with a traditional mill.
Keith Cochrane, Chief Executive of The Weir Group PLC said: “This agreement provides an excellent extension to our already substantial product offering across the mining mill circuit."
Jouni Salo, Chief Executive of KHD Humboldt Wedag International AG said: “We are excited by the potential that this agreement brings to both companies and most of all this significantly improves our offering to our customers."

With annual sales of £1.4bn Weir employs 9000 people and operates in over 42 countries with manufacturing facilities in North and South America, the UK, mainland Europe, Australia, South Africa, India and China.
