Queen Elizabeth Meets the WARMAN® Centrifugal Slurry Pump

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth was shown a scale model of the world famous Warman® slurry pump on a visit to the Weir Advanced Research Centre (WARC) at the University of Strathclyde’s Technology and Innovation Centre in Glasgow, Scotland.


Her Majesty The Queen examines Weir products at the Weir Advanced Research Centre, University of Strathclyde.

Warman® slurry pumps have been manufactured around the world since 1938. The Minerals Division of The Weir Group is now the global market leader in slurry pumps used for minerals processing: the method by which valuable minerals are extracted from ore bodies.

The collaboration with the University of Strathclyde is part of Weir’s commitment to continuous innovation of its products, a commitment which includes engineers working with academics from some of the world’s leading technological institutions. Weir already has similar research relationships with Imperial College London, the University of Sydney, the University of Queensland, and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

The Queen was also shown a scale model of a minerals processing plant, and learned of Weir’s global operations empire, which stretches over more than seventy countries and includes more than 200 manufacturing and service centers, the most recent addition being the recently acquired range of Trio® comminution products for crushing, screening and grinding.

Commenting on the visit, Dean Jenkins, Divisional Managing Director of Weir Minerals said: “It is a great honor to be able to share Weir and Warman’s story with Her Majesty, and for her to take such an interest in our firm’s long-standing commitment to developing innovative solutions, aimed at making our customers more productive and maintaining our market leadership.”
