Weir Minerals has launched the 2nd generation Warman WGR pump for the sand and aggregate market.

The replaceable impeller and liners are manufactured using Linatex premium rubber, appropriate for wet sand applications. The streamlined slurry flow path reduces recirculation and energy consumption making this product suitable for sand and aggregate sites.

Linatex is made in a liquid phase manufacturing method. The manufacturer says that this provides it with exceptional wear properties allowing it to last longer in service, lower operators total ownership costs, and simplify change-outs.  

Sand and aggregate applications

Weir Minerals has made enhancements to the original Warman WGR pump and has designed and engineered it for sand and aggregate applications. Compared to its predecessor, the 2nd generation pump offers several new features including improved hydraulic design, enhanced gland options, simplified wet-end and added features for improved safety and reduced maintenance.

The large diameter expeller seal design prevents slurry leakage and protects against high inlet pressures, reducing maintenance and adjustment frequency. Additional gland seal options are also available including a remote adjusting patented D-Gland seal, which provides parallel adjustment of the sealing faces.

The pump was initially launched for the European market in October last year but is now available globally.
