Integrating its rising range of merchandise into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is increasingly a way of life at Weir Minerals. The current launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how efficient this strategy may be, and the way much it could contribute to customers’ backside traces.

Integrated solutions are what separates equipment suppliers from answer providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how this is carried out.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final year, after being developed in response to a challenge which a buyer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive applications and huge 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 parts 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 tooth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and highly charged slurries and dirt to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven manufacturers, and are carefully mixed to produce an integrated resolution that saves prospects time and money. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off site.
เกจวัดแรงดันลม 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 large particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside excessive 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 82 metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle size of eighty mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over time, it has turn out to be more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn into more diverse,” says Koorts. “The method we have developed this answer exhibits the progress lately towards integrating our product traces to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams deliver more value than the sum of their component components. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts were ready to attract on the best expertise from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an revolutionary outcome.
“Our extensive footprint in the subject and our close collaboration with customers on a day by day basis gives us an in depth understanding of their particular requirements,” he says. “We can therefore ensure that our improvements are match for purpose, being based on our appreciable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
