Integrating its growing vary of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is more and more a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. เครื่องมือที่ใช้วัดความดัน of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how effective this approach can be, and the way much it could contribute to customers’ bottom lines.

Integrated solutions are what separates tools suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, general manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how this is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final year, after being developed in response to a challenge which a buyer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy duty hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and huge particle handling. 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 elements 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 teeth.”
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 proven brands, and are fastidiously combined to produce an built-in answer that saves prospects money and time. It additionally reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off website.
“The pump design includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for prime wear resistance,” he says. “There is also a suction strainer to forestall excessively large particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside excessive performance ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between a hundred and fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of eighty two metres. The pump can handle a maximum particle dimension of eighty mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over time, it has turn out to be more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn out to be more numerous,” says Koorts. “The means we now have developed this resolution shows the progress in latest times toward 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 extra worth than the sum of their part parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering consultants have been able 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 innovative outcome.
“Our intensive footprint in the area and our shut collaboration with customers each day offers us a detailed understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can subsequently ensure that our innovations are match for function, being based on our considerable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
