Integrating its rising vary of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is more and more a way of life at Weir Minerals. The latest launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how effective this strategy could be, and the way a lot it could contribute to customers’ backside lines.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated options are what separates tools suppliers from solution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common supervisor pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how that is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched last year, after being developed in response to a problem which a buyer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy duty hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and large particle handling. Its application is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump efficiently 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 enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and extremely charged slurries and dirt to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven manufacturers, and are carefully combined to provide an built-in answer that saves clients time and money. It also reduces environmental influence, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off web site.
“The pump design consists of Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for prime put on resistance,” he says. “There can be a suction strainer to stop excessively giant particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside high efficiency ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as a lot as a head of 82 metres. The pump can handle a maximum particle dimension of 80 mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over time, it has turn into more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and become more diverse,” says Koorts. “The way we now have developed this answer reveals the progress lately towards integrating our product lines to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups deliver more worth than the sum of their element components. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists were ready to attract on the best technology from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an innovative outcome.
“Our intensive footprint within the subject and our shut collaboration with customers each day offers us a detailed understanding of their particular requirements,” he says. “We can therefore ensure that our innovations are fit for objective, being based mostly on our considerable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
