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

WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated solutions are what separates equipment suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, common manager pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how this is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final year, after being developed in response to a challenge which a customer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and huge particle handling. Its utility 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 meeting coupled to a hydraulic motor,” he says. “Another key ingredient is the pairing of dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation tooth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and highly charged slurries and dirt to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the components making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed brands, and are rigorously mixed to supply an built-in solution that saves customers time and money. It also reduces environmental influence, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off site.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear 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 levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between a hundred and fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as a lot as a head of 82 metres. The pump can deal with a most particle measurement of 80 mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over time, it has become extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn into more various,” says Koorts. “The way we have developed this answer reveals the progress in latest years toward integrating our product lines to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams ship more worth than the sum of their part elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts had 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 in depth footprint within the subject and our shut collaboration with clients each day provides us an in depth understanding of their particular requirements,” he says. “ เกจแรงดันน้ำ can due to this fact ensure that our improvements are fit for objective, being based mostly on our considerable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
