Integrating its rising range of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions is more and more a way of life at Weir Minerals. The latest launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how efficient this method could be, and how much it could contribute to customers’ bottom strains.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated options are what separates gear suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, general supervisor pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how this is carried out.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final year, after being developed in response to a problem which a buyer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive purposes and large particle dealing with. Its utility 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 dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and highly charged slurries and dust to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the components making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven brands, and are rigorously combined to produce an integrated solution that saves prospects money and time. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the fabric off site.
“The pump design consists of Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for top put on resistance,” he says. “There is also a suction strainer to stop excessively giant particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside excessive performance ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between a hundred and fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as much as a head of 82 metres. The pump can handle a maximum particle measurement of eighty mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over the years, it has become extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and become extra numerous,” says Koorts. “The method we now have developed this resolution shows the progress lately towards integrating our product traces to add value to our offerings.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams deliver extra worth than the sum of their element parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists were in a position to draw on the most effective technology from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an progressive result.
“ เกจวัดแรงดันเชื้อเพลิง in the subject and our shut collaboration with customers on a day by day basis gives us a detailed understanding of their specific necessities,” he says. “We can therefore make certain that our innovations are match for purpose, being based mostly on our considerable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
