Integrating its growing range of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions is increasingly a way of life at Weir Minerals. The latest launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how effective this method can 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 providers, argues Marnus Koorts, general supervisor pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how that is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final yr, 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 applications and large particle dealing with. Its application is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“ เกจไนโตรเจนsumo combines components 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 dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and highly charged slurries and mud to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed manufacturers, and are rigorously mixed to produce an integrated solution that saves customers money and time. It also reduces environmental influence, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off web site.
“ pressure gauge digital ราคา includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high 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 optimal uptime alongside high efficiency levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between one hundred 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 most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over time, it has turn into extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn into extra various,” says Koorts. “The way we now have developed this solution reveals the progress in latest years toward integrating our product strains to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams ship more value than the sum of their component parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering consultants have been ready to draw on the best know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an innovative result.
“Our extensive footprint in the area and our close collaboration with clients every day provides us an in depth understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can therefore be positive that our improvements are match for objective, being based on our appreciable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
