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

Integrated options are what separates equipment suppliers from solution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, general manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how this is done.
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 obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and large particle handling. Its application is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, maintaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump successfully combines parts of the Warman MGS submersible slurry pump-end, and a customized 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, permitting 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 combined to produce an integrated resolution that saves prospects money and time. ไดอะแฟรม ซีล reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the fabric off site.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for top wear resistance,” he says. “There is also a suction strainer to forestall 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, up to a head of 82 metres. The pump can deal with a most particle measurement of eighty mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over time, it has become extra systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn out to be extra various,” says Koorts. “The method we have developed this solution shows the progress lately towards integrating our product lines to add value to our offerings.”

He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams deliver more value than the sum of their component parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts have been ready 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 extensive footprint within the subject and our shut collaboration with customers on a every day basis gives us a detailed understanding of their particular requirements,” he says. “We can subsequently make positive that our improvements are match for function, being primarily based on our appreciable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
