GN has decided to spinoff its separation and conveying divisions into a new group, GN Separation and Conveying Equipment.
The new business, set up at the beginning of 2019, will mainly focus on industries outside of the oil & gas, and recycling and waste management sectors.
GN Separation and Conveying’s product line includes decanter centrifuges; transfer pumps; screw, bucket and belt conveyors; and other separation equipment such as clarifiers and a screen scroll centrifuge.
Mining and construction is one of the company’s target markets. Decanter centrifuges (pictured), with up to 30 in (76.2 cm) bowl diameters, are already working in coal operations to dewater slurry, while GN U-Type screw conveyors have potential applications in mining operations for moving wet or dry materials either horizontally, on an incline or vertically.
