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

Integrated options are what separates equipment suppliers from answer suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic supervisor pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how that is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched last 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 enormous particle handling. Its software is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump efficiently combines components of the Warman MGS submersible slurry pump-end, and a custom 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, permitting abrasive and extremely charged slurries and mud to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed brands, and are rigorously mixed to supply an integrated answer that saves customers time and money. It also reduces environmental influence, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off website.
“The pump design consists of Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear resistance,” he says. “There can additionally be a suction strainer to stop excessively large particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside excessive efficiency ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between a hundred and fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as much as a head of eighty two metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle size of 80 mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over the years, it has become extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn into extra various,” says Koorts. “The means we have developed this resolution shows the progress in latest times towards integrating our product lines to add worth to our offerings.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams deliver extra value than the sum of their element parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts have been in a position to attract on one of the best expertise from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an revolutionary outcome.
“Our in depth footprint in the area and our shut collaboration with customers every day gives us a detailed understanding of their specific necessities,” he says. “We can due to this fact ensure that our improvements are fit for objective, being primarily based on our considerable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
