Weir Minerals has launched three products from its global BDK range of industrial valves across its European region, which includes North Africa and Kazakhstan. The move sees knife gate, diaphragm and resilient-seat butterfly valves made available in response to demand from customers.
Following the roll-out, Weir Minerals expects the products to be used in several countries in a diverse range of applications. BDK valves are already used to handle slurries in the mining and minerals industries around the world.
The BDK valve range will be supported by Weir Minerals’ established service network. Weir Minerals has more than 20 service centres across Europe, North Africa and Kazakhstan, with three openings in 2014 strengthening the on-the-ground expertise available to customers.
“BDK valves have a loyal following among customers elsewhere in the world and we feel it is a natural step to respond to demand and make them available in Europe too,” said Tony Locke, managing director of Weir Minerals Europe. “They are suitable for a wide range of duties, but are also compact and, because they offer low maintenance costs, the range is an ideal choice in its field. The valves are used in a diverse range of sectors, from our core mining and minerals industries to paper, chemicals, water treatment, sugar, steel and fertiliser production.
