Linatex Corporation of America has been servicing both the South American and North American mining and mineral processing markets for over 30 years. With a history of providing superior natural and synthetic, abrasion resistant rubber for mining and mineral processing applications, Linatex is looking to its past to innovate for its future.
‘Just having an understanding of the mining and industrial markets isn’t enough in this everchanging environment,’ Greg Caddle, President of Linatex Corporation of America said. ‘You need to be able to draw on your experiences and develop innovative products that provide optimum solutions to customers’ requirements, with minimal operational risk. This is how we’ve developed our process equipment range and this is where Linatex stands apart.’
‘The launch of our Minerals Processing equipment range is building on something we have done successfully in the past. We’re using our global knowledge and local experience to help us to design and build what will be one of the most successful equipment ranges of its time,’ continued Caddle. ‘We’ve focussed on the efficiency and the design of our product range, to ensure it competes in global markets. Our testing has been in the harshest environments we can find, and we will launch a range of products locally through 2008.’
At CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas, Nevada in March 2008, Linatex will unveil a number of new, state of the art processing equipment products. Coupled with the recent acquisition of Durex Products Inc., the new, expanded company will be able to provide a comprehensive range of wear products and process equipment to both North and South America.
‘The development of the Linatex process equipment line is closely related to our leadership in the field of our flagship product, Linatex Premium Rubber,’ Caddle said. ’The process equipment line makes extensive use of our Linatex rubber to provide superior operational efficiency and wear life in severe, abrasive applications. We intend to offer a package of innovative equipment that extends from the recently released hydrocylone range, to a totally new pump range with higher efficiencies and serviceability. We also have developments underway in our dewatering screen range and shortly, a revamped and upgraded pinch valve product. We have utilized our global expertise to ensure we have balanced low cost manufacturing and sourcing, with local support and value adding, ensuring we can deliver competitive products with optimum speed to market.’
Linatex, with its new partner Durex Products, will be at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, 11th-15th March 2008, to discuss the new product range.
