Following the launch of the TLT-Turbo Africa, in Q2 2018, German based ventilation firm, TLT-Turbo (GmbH), has concluded the consolidation of several South African based operations to become the continent’s first and only complete, turn-key mining, energy and industrial ventilation solutions provider.
Cement fans, being part of complex and customised ventilation systems, require permanent R&D activities concerning all aspects of design. Wear is one of the essential challenges in this technically demanding environment. Accordingly, different solutions of surface anti-wear protection coating systems have been investigated and developed by TLT-Turbo
TLT MechCaL and TLT ACTOM will now be known as a single entity; TLT-Turbo Africa. The new brand is line with the global identity of the German parent company to both firms, TLT-Turbo. “The re-branding of these separate entities will allow us to strengthen our offering across Africa,” says Managing Director, Luther Erasmus.
