Integrating its rising vary of merchandise into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions is more and more a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. The recent launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how effective this strategy can be, and how a lot it could contribute to customers’ backside traces.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP

Integrated options are what separates equipment suppliers from solution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, general supervisor pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how that is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final year, after being developed in response to a problem which a customer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and enormous particle handling. Its software is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, maintaining 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 twin Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation tooth.”

The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and extremely charged slurries and dust to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the elements making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven brands, and are rigorously mixed to provide an built-in answer that saves clients money and time. It additionally reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the material off site.
“The pump design includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear resistance,” he says. “There is also a suction strainer to forestall excessively large particles clogging the pump.”

This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside high efficiency ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between 150 m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as a lot as 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 merchandise has grown organically over time, it has turn out to be extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn into extra diverse,” says Koorts. “ diaphragm seal have developed this resolution shows the progress lately toward integrating our product strains to add value to our choices.”

He notes that the method of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups deliver more value than the sum of their element parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists had been in a position to attract on the most effective expertise from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an progressive result.
“Our intensive footprint within the field and our close collaboration with clients each day gives us an in depth understanding of their specific necessities,” he says. “We can therefore make sure that our innovations are match for objective, being based on our considerable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
