Integrating its rising vary of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is increasingly a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. เพรสเชอร์เกจคือ of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how efficient this approach may be, and how a lot it could contribute to customers’ bottom traces.

Integrated solutions are what separates equipment suppliers from solution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic manager pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how that is carried out.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final 12 months, after being developed in response to a problem which a customer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive applications 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 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 dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and extremely charged slurries and dust to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed brands, and are carefully combined to produce an integrated answer that saves customers money and time. It also reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the fabric off website.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for prime wear 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 high efficiency ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of eighty two metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle measurement of 80 mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over time, it has become extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and become more diverse,” says Koorts. “The method we’ve developed this solution shows the progress in recent years toward integrating our product traces to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups deliver more value than the sum of their element parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts have been in a position to draw on 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 within the area and our shut collaboration with clients on a every day basis gives us an in depth understanding of their specific requirements,” he says. “We can due to this fact be positive that our improvements are match for purpose, being based mostly on our considerable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
