Weba Chute Systems asserts that the use of generic transfer chutes often results in suboptimal performance and unreliable operation, whereas the company’s focus on design, engineering and manufacturing ensures reliable solutions for its customers.

“At Weba Chute Systems every transfer point solution is custom-engineered to address specific material and operating conditions on-site. We leverage our extensive design capabilities and field experience in the process and our skilled draughtsmen employ the latest specialised software to model material flow accurately,” says Weba Chute Systems technical manager Dewald Tintinger. “This meticulous approach ensures the optimisation of material trajectory, minimising impacts and disruptions during transfer.”

The company also offers technical backup and support to ensure that its chutes deliver consistent performance. “Our specially trained technicians undertake regular inspections ensuring that proactive maintenance can be done, and where necessary customers can be forewarned regarding any issues. This approach enables informed decisions to be made and eliminates costly downtime due to premature chute failure.”

Tintinger emphasises the importance of involving transfer point specialists in the early stages of plant planning and design. “Our team’s experience and detailed knowledge of how transfer points and chutes work allow them to offer valuable guidance on positioning equipment for optimal material flow. By strategically placing chutes and other equipment, plants can significantly improve efficiency, resulting in enhanced production outcomes and cost savings.”

“While transfer chutes may be perceived to be relatively low-cost items within the overall process equipment flowsheet, these can become sources of significant and expensive operational problems when not properly engineered or maintained,” he continues. “We offer a solution to this issue by ensuring that our chutes are designed and installed to minimise disruptions and prevent costly downtime.”
