Weir Minerals releases the 6th edition of the Warman® Slurry Pumping Handbook.

Metals are key to global growth and critical to a sustainable future. Lithium, copper and nickel are three examples of vital resources regarding the role they play in electrifying modern living, with metals such as aluminium and iron key to building construction and maintenance. 

Therefore, it is the all-important duty of the mining sector to uncover and acquire these raw resources to fuel societal growth – this is where The Weir Group PLC (Weir) comes in.  

Founded in 1871, Weir is a premium mining technology business whose purpose is to make customers’ operations more sustainable and efficient, and today has approximately 13,000 employees in over 60 countries. The group is ideally positioned to benefit from structural trends that support long-term demand for its technology including the need for more essential metals to support economic development and carbon transition. Weir’s highly engineered technology enables these critical resources to be produced using less energy, water and waste, reducing customers’ total cost of ownership.  

Weir’s technologies operate at the centre of the mining sector across the globe, backed by the drive to maximise sustainability and efficiency in helping provide such resources for our ever-growing society.
