Integrating its rising vary 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 reveals how effective this method can be, and how much it could contribute to customers’ bottom traces.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated solutions are what separates tools suppliers from solution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common supervisor pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how that is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched last year, after being developed in response to a challenge which a customer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive purposes and enormous particle dealing with. Its software is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining 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 assembly coupled to a hydraulic motor,” he says. “ ส่วนประกอบpressuregauge is the pairing of dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and highly charged slurries and dirt to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed brands, and are carefully mixed to supply an built-in resolution that saves prospects money and time. It also reduces environmental impact, 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 can be a suction strainer to stop excessively giant particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside high performance levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between 150 m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as a lot as a head of eighty two 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 out to be extra systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and become extra diverse,” says Koorts. “The way we have developed this resolution reveals the progress in current years towards integrating our product strains to add worth to our offerings.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups ship extra worth than the sum of their component components. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists have been ready to attract on the most effective technology from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an progressive outcome.
“Our in depth footprint within the field and our close collaboration with prospects each day provides us a detailed understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can therefore make positive that our innovations are fit for purpose, being primarily based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
