Integrating its rising vary of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions 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 traces.

Integrated options are what separates gear suppliers from solution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how this is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final 12 months, after being developed in response to a problem which a buyer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive applications and huge 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 customized 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.”

digital pressure gauge agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and extremely charged slurries and mud to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the components making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven manufacturers, and are rigorously mixed to produce an integrated answer that saves prospects time and money. It additionally reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the expensive and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off site.
“The pump design consists of Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for prime wear resistance,” he says. “There can also be a suction strainer to stop excessively large particles clogging the pump.”

This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside high efficiency ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between 150 m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of eighty two metres. The pump can handle a maximum 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 various,” says Koorts. “The means we’ve developed this answer exhibits the progress in current years toward integrating our product strains to add value to our offerings.”

He notes that the method of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups deliver extra worth than the sum of their part components. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists have been able 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 outcome.
diaphragm seal in the subject and our shut collaboration with clients each day provides us an in depth understanding of their particular requirements,” he says. “We can therefore ensure that our improvements are fit for objective, being based mostly on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
