More and more mines seek solutions that not only enhance operational effectiveness but also ensure environmental compliance and safety.

Weba Chute Systems highlights its scientifically validated, custom-engineered chute systems that feature measurable performance enhancements, enabling customers to directly observe reductions in total cost of ownership, while also prioritising environmental compliance and safety.

The company says it is committed to delivering scientific accuracy and tangible results. According to, Weba Chute Systems systems manager Izak Potgieter, the company undertakes comprehensive product measurements to ascertain and validate the performance of its solutions: "We meticulously evaluate everything from dust levels to the wear and tear on essential components, ensuring we deliver comprehensive value.”

Weba Chute Systems notes that one of the key areas of focus is dust management, which is seen as a critical concern in mining operations. The company employs a detailed dust analysis programme that benchmarks its custom-engineered products against conventional chutes, offering end-users a clear picture of the improvements in terms of occupational health and safety standards. It says that the meticulous measurement of dust particles, particularly those below 0.3 microns, underscores Weba's ability to enhance workplace safety and environmental care.

The company has also invested in research and development to devise reliable calculation methods for maintenance planning. "Our model enables us to predict the lifespan of components with remarkable accuracy," Potgieter notes. "This not only provides our customers with factual proof of our products' durability but also empowers them with the knowledge they need to plan proactive maintenance, ensuring uninterrupted productivity."

This scientific approach to both the performance measurement and maintenance planning of chute systems helps to assure customers of a product’s operational efficiency and its contribution to maximising uptime.

“By reducing the total cost of ownership and guaranteeing the longevity and efficiency of transfer points, we are not just a supplier but a strategic partner in the mining industry's quest for sustainable productivity,” Potgieter concludes.
