Integrating its growing vary of merchandise into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is more and more a way of life at Weir Minerals. The recent launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how efficient this approach can be, and how a lot it could contribute to customers’ backside lines.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP

Integrated solutions are what separates equipment suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic manager pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how this is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final year, after being developed in response to a problem which a buyer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and huge particle dealing with. Its application is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining 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 enamel.”

The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and highly charged slurries and dust to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed brands, and are fastidiously combined to produce an integrated answer that saves prospects time and money. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the expensive and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the fabric off site.
“The pump design consists of Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for top put on resistance,” he says. “There can be a suction strainer to prevent excessively giant 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 82 metres. The pump can handle a maximum particle measurement of eighty mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over time, it has become more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn out to be more numerous,” says Koorts. “The method we’ve developed this answer exhibits the progress in latest times towards integrating our product strains to add value to our choices.”

He notes that the method of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams ship more value than the sum of their element elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts had 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 progressive result.
pressure gauge 10 bar in the field and our shut collaboration with customers each day gives us an in depth understanding of their specific necessities,” he says. “We can therefore ensure that our improvements are fit for function, being primarily based on our considerable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
