Integrating its growing range of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions is more and more a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. The latest launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how efficient this approach could be, and how much it could contribute to customers’ bottom traces.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated solutions are what separates gear suppliers from answer providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common supervisor pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how that is carried out.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final 12 months, after being developed in response to a problem which a customer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive applications and enormous particle dealing with. Its utility is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump successfully combines components of the Warman MGS submersible slurry pump-end, and a customized Multiflo designed bearing assembly 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 extremely charged slurries and dust to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the elements making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven manufacturers, and are rigorously combined to produce an integrated resolution that saves clients money and time. Skyrocket reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the expensive and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off site.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear resistance,” he says. “There is also a suction strainer to forestall excessively giant particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside excessive performance ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of eighty two metres. The pump can handle a maximum particle size of eighty mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically through the years, it has turn into extra systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn out to be more numerous,” says Koorts. “The means we’ve developed this answer exhibits the progress in current years towards integrating our product lines to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams deliver extra worth than the sum of their element components. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists had been ready to draw on one of the best technology from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an innovative outcome.
“Our extensive footprint within the area and our shut collaboration with customers each day offers us a detailed understanding of their particular requirements,” he says. “We can due to this fact ensure that our improvements are fit for function, being based on our appreciable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
