Integrating its growing 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 reveals how efficient this approach can be, and the way a lot it may possibly contribute to customers’ backside strains.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated solutions are what separates tools suppliers from answer providers, argues Marnus Koorts, general manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how this is carried out.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched last yr, after being developed in response to a problem which a customer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy duty hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and large particle handling. Its utility is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, maintaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump efficiently combines parts 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 dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation tooth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and extremely charged slurries and mud to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the elements making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed manufacturers, and are rigorously combined to provide an built-in answer that saves customers time and money. It also reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off website.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear resistance,” he says. “There can be pressure gauge to prevent excessively large particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside excessive efficiency ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between 150 m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of eighty two metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle measurement of 80 mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over the years, it has turn into extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and become more diverse,” says Koorts. “The means we now have developed this answer shows the progress in recent times towards integrating our product strains to add worth to our offerings.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups deliver extra value than the sum of their component elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering consultants have been in a position to draw on one of the best know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an revolutionary outcome.
“Our extensive footprint in the subject and our shut collaboration with prospects each day gives us a detailed understanding of their specific requirements,” he says. “We can due to this fact make certain that our improvements are fit for objective, being based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
