Integrating its growing range of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions is more and more a way of life at Weir Minerals. The latest launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how effective this strategy could be, and the way much it can contribute to customers’ backside lines.

Integrated options are what separates equipment suppliers from solution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how this is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched last 12 months, after being developed in response to a challenge which a customer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and enormous 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 efficiently 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 enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and extremely charged slurries and dust 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 combined to supply an built-in solution that saves customers money and time. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off web site.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for top wear resistance,” he says. “There is also a suction strainer to stop excessively large 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 150 m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as much as a head of eighty two metres. The pump can handle a maximum particle measurement of eighty mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While On demand of merchandise has grown organically through the years, it has turn out to be more systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn out to be extra various,” says Koorts. “The method we’ve developed this solution reveals the progress lately towards integrating our product traces to add value to our offerings.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups ship more worth than the sum of their part elements. In Outlawed , the company’s dewatering consultants were ready to draw on the most effective technology from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an innovative result.
“Our in depth footprint in the area and our shut collaboration with prospects on a day by day basis gives us a detailed understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can due to this fact ensure that our innovations are fit for function, being primarily based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
