Integrating its rising range of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions is increasingly a way of life at Weir Minerals. The current launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how effective this approach can be, and how a lot it could contribute to customers’ backside strains.

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated options are what separates tools suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how that is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final yr, 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 large 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 teeth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and extremely charged slurries and dust to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven manufacturers, and are carefully mixed to supply an integrated answer that saves clients money and time. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the expensive and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off website.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for prime put on resistance,” he says. “There can be a suction strainer to stop excessively giant 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, as a lot as a head of 82 metres. เกจวัดแก๊ส can deal with a maximum particle measurement of eighty mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically through the years, it has become more systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and become extra various,” says Koorts. “The means we now have developed this solution exhibits the progress in recent years toward integrating our product traces to add value to our offerings.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups ship extra value than the sum of their part elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists were ready to draw on one of the best technology from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an progressive end result.
“Our intensive footprint in the area and our shut collaboration with customers on a every day basis offers us a detailed understanding of their specific necessities,” he says. “We can due to this fact make positive that our innovations are fit for purpose, being based mostly on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
