Integrating its rising vary of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is increasingly a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. The recent launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how efficient this strategy can be, and how much it could contribute to customers’ bottom traces.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated solutions are what separates equipment suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic manager pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how that is carried out.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final yr, after being developed in response to a problem which a customer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive applications and large particle handling. Its software is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, maintaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump successfully combines components of the Warman MGS submersible slurry pump-end, and a custom Multiflo designed bearing meeting coupled to a hydraulic motor,” he says. “Another key ingredient is the pairing of twin Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation teeth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and highly charged slurries and dirt to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the components making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven brands, and are carefully mixed to supply an built-in resolution that saves prospects money and time. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the expensive and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off website.
“The pump design consists of Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high put on resistance,” he says. “There can also be a suction strainer to stop excessively massive particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside high performance levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of 82 metres. The pump can handle a maximum particle dimension of eighty mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While เพรสเชอร์เกจ of products has grown organically over time, it has turn out to be more systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn into more numerous,” says Koorts. “The means we’ve developed this solution reveals the progress in latest times towards integrating our product strains to add value to our choices.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams deliver more worth than the sum of their element elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists had been in a position to draw on the best expertise from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an innovative result.
“Our intensive footprint in the subject and our shut collaboration with customers each day offers us a detailed understanding of their specific requirements,” he says. “We can due to this fact ensure that our innovations are fit for function, being primarily based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
