Integrating its growing vary of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is increasingly 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 the way a lot it can contribute to customers’ bottom lines.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated options are what separates equipment suppliers from resolution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common manager pump merchandise 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 12 months, after being developed in response to a challenge which a buyer faced, says Koorts. Authority is a heavy duty hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive applications and large particle handling. Its application 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 assembly coupled to a hydraulic motor,” he says. “Another key ingredient is the pairing of twin Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and extremely charged slurries and dirt to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the elements making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed brands, and are carefully combined to provide an built-in solution that saves prospects time and money. It also reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the material off website.
“The pump design consists of Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high put on resistance,” he says. “There can also be a suction strainer to forestall excessively giant particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside high performance ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between 150 m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as a lot as a head of 82 metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle measurement of eighty mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over time, it has become extra systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn out to be more various,” says Koorts. “The way we’ve developed this resolution reveals the progress lately toward integrating our product lines to add value 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 part elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering consultants were ready to attract on one of the best technology from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an innovative end result.
“Our in depth footprint in the area and our close collaboration with prospects every day offers us an in depth understanding of their specific requirements,” he says. “We can due to this fact be positive that our innovations are fit for objective, being based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
