The ANDRITZ AG announces the acquisition of the Delkor Capital Equipment Company. Originally formed in 1975 as Delkor Technik (pty) Ltd., the company was sold to the IST Group 2003 before it was bought by GKD Buismet in December 2005 and renamed GKD-Delkor. Delkor Capital Equipment has built up an excellent reputation as one of the leading suppliers to the mining, metallurgical, sewage, wastewater, paper and pulp, food and chemical industries globally. Delkor Capital Equipment has its head office in Gauteng/South Africa.
The Environment Separation (ES) group of Andritz AG has already been offering a wide range of solid/liquid separation equipment namely centrifuges, belt presses, screens and sieves, conventional drum filters as well as YU drum filters, disk filters especially hyperbaric disk filters, filter presses and filtration thickeners. Now, with Delkor Capital Equipment Company the Andritz portfolio is expanded toward:
• Horizontal vacuum belt filters (HVB)
• Conventional and high-rate thickeners
• Flocculant make-up and dosing plants
• Delkor linear screens
This acquisition opens up new opportunities for ANDRITZ ES in offering solid/liquid separation equipment especially to the metallurgical industry. In turn Delkor Capital Equipment benefits from the worldwide ANDRITZ ES presence in terms of capital sales offices and service locations. This has already materialized by a successful joint sales of a horizontal vacuum belt filter (Fig.) to M/S Jindal South West in India for iron ore slurry.
