Integrating its growing range of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is increasingly a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. The current launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how effective this method may be, and how much it might possibly contribute to customers’ backside strains.

Integrated options are what separates gear suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, common supervisor pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how that is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched last yr, after being developed in response to a challenge which a buyer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and enormous particle dealing with. 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 parts 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 extremely charged slurries and dirt to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed brands, and are fastidiously combined to supply an built-in solution that saves prospects money and time. It additionally reduces environmental influence, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the fabric off site.
“The pump design includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for top wear resistance,” he says. “There can also be a suction strainer to forestall excessively large particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside high performance 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 most particle size of 80 mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically through the years, it has become extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn into extra numerous,” says Koorts. “The way we now have developed this resolution reveals the progress in latest years towards integrating our product lines to add worth to our offerings.”
เกจปรับแรงดันแก๊ส notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups ship more worth than the sum of their element components. In this case, the company’s dewatering consultants were in a position to attract on the best know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an innovative result.
“Our intensive footprint within the area and our close collaboration with prospects on a day by day basis offers us a detailed understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can therefore make sure that our innovations are match for objective, being based mostly on our appreciable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
