Integrating its growing vary of merchandise into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is increasingly a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. The recent launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how effective this strategy could be, and the way much it may possibly contribute to customers’ bottom lines.

Integrated solutions are what separates equipment suppliers from answer providers, argues Marnus Koorts, general manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how this is accomplished.
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 duty hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive purposes and huge particle handling. เครื่องมือที่ใช้ในการวัดความดัน is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump successfully combines elements 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 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 confirmed brands, and are carefully combined to supply an built-in answer that saves clients 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 contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for top wear resistance,” he says. “There can be a suction strainer to prevent excessively massive particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside high efficiency ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as much as a head of 82 metres. The pump can deal with a most particle dimension of 80 mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically through the years, it has turn into more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and become more numerous,” says Koorts. “The method we now have developed this solution shows the progress in current years toward integrating our product traces to add worth to our offerings.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups deliver more worth than the sum of their part parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists have been ready to attract on the most effective technology from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an innovative end result.
“Our extensive footprint within the area and our shut collaboration with customers each day offers us a detailed understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can therefore ensure that our improvements are fit for objective, being based mostly on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
