Integrating its growing range of merchandise into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is more and more a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. The latest launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how effective this strategy could be, and the way a lot it could contribute to customers’ backside strains.

Integrated options are what separates tools suppliers from solution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently 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 challenge which a buyer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and large particle dealing with. Its software 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 twin Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation teeth.”

The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and extremely charged slurries and mud to be efficiently pumped. diaphragm seal emphasises that the elements making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven brands, and are carefully combined to supply an built-in solution that saves prospects money and time. It additionally reduces environmental influence, by avoiding the expensive and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off web site.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for top put on resistance,” he says. “There can additionally be a suction strainer to prevent excessively large particles clogging the pump.”

This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside excessive performance levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of 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 size of 80 mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over time, it has turn into more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn into more numerous,” says Koorts. “The way we’ve developed this answer exhibits the progress lately towards 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 teams ship extra worth than the sum of their component elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts have been ready to draw on the most effective know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an revolutionary result.
“Our extensive footprint within the field and our shut collaboration with clients every day gives us a detailed understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can therefore ensure that our improvements are match for objective, being based on our considerable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
