HAVER subsidiary HAVER ENGINEERING (HEM), not only develops machines and processes for mineral processing technology for the HAVER & BOECKER Group with focus on agglomeration and washing processes, but is highly interested in research and development projects for other companies (Fig.). In January 2011 HEM was awarded a development contract from Siemens VAI. This customer in Austria has contracted HEM to conduct a wide variety of studies on the pelletisation of iron oxides. The contracted studies are a real challenge because up to now no processes existed that allowed Siemens to manufacture the pellets that one needs. The trials at HEM provide the basis and thus the foundation for designing a new process that Siemens VAI would like to put into practice together with leading international steel producers. The time frame for implementing the project is very tight – the results must be available already by the end of March 2011. This contract shows that HEM has truly developed into a recognised centre of expertise through focus and effective expansion of knowledge over the last three years.
