Integrating its rising vary of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) options is more and more a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. The current launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how effective this method could be, and how a lot it might possibly contribute to customers’ backside lines.

Integrated options are what separates gear suppliers from answer suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, common manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how that is accomplished.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final yr, after being developed in response to a problem which a buyer confronted, says Koorts. เครื่องมือวัดความดัน is a heavy duty hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and large 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 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 dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation tooth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and highly charged slurries and dirt to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the parts making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven manufacturers, and are fastidiously mixed to provide an integrated answer that saves prospects time and money. It additionally reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the fabric off web site.
“The pump design includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high put on resistance,” he says. “There can additionally be a suction strainer to prevent excessively giant particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside excessive efficiency levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of 82 metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle measurement of 80 mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over the years, it has turn into extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and become more various,” says Koorts. “The way we have developed this answer reveals the progress in recent years toward integrating our product traces to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams ship more value than the sum of their component parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists were able to attract on the best know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an progressive end result.
“Our intensive footprint within the area and our close collaboration with customers on a every day basis offers us a detailed understanding of their specific requirements,” he says. “We can due to this fact be certain that our improvements are match for function, being based on our considerable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
