Integrating its rising vary 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 reveals how efficient this approach may be, and the way a lot it can contribute to customers’ bottom lines.

Integrated options are what separates gear suppliers from resolution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic manager pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the just lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how this is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final 12 months, after being developed in response to a problem which a customer faced, says Koorts. ร้านซ่อมเครื่องวัดความดันomron is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive applications and huge particle handling. Its utility is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, maintaining 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 custom 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 teeth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and extremely charged slurries and dust to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the elements making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed manufacturers, and are rigorously mixed to provide an built-in resolution that saves clients time and money. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off site.
“The pump design includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for top wear resistance,” he says. “There can additionally be a suction strainer to stop excessively giant particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside excessive performance levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as a lot as a head of 82 metres. The pump can handle a most particle measurement of eighty mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over time, it has turn out to be more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn into more various,” says Koorts. “The method we now have developed this solution reveals the progress in latest times towards integrating our product traces to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups ship extra worth than the sum of their part parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts were ready to attract on one of the best expertise from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an revolutionary end result.
“Our extensive footprint in the area and our close collaboration with prospects each day gives us an in depth understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can therefore ensure that our innovations are fit for function, being based mostly on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
