Integrating its rising vary of merchandise into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions is increasingly a way of life at Weir Minerals. The recent launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how effective this strategy can be, and the way much it can contribute to customers’ bottom strains.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated options are what separates gear suppliers from answer providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common supervisor pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how this is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final yr, after being developed in response to a challenge which a customer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and huge 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 elements 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 mud to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the elements making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven brands, and are rigorously mixed to supply an integrated resolution that saves prospects money and time. It additionally reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off website.
“The pump design includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear resistance,” he says. “There can also be a suction strainer to stop excessively large particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside high efficiency ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between a hundred and fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of 82 metres. The pump can handle a most particle dimension 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 turn into extra diverse,” says Koorts. “The means we now have developed this solution exhibits the progress lately towards integrating our product lines to add value to our choices.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams ship more worth than the sum of their element components. In this case, the company’s dewatering consultants had been able to attract on the most effective know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an revolutionary result.
“Our in depth footprint in the field and our shut collaboration with clients on a every day basis offers us an in depth understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can due to this fact ensure that our innovations are fit for objective, being based mostly on our appreciable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
