Integrating its growing vary of products into engineered-to-order (ETO) solutions is more and more a lifestyle at Weir Minerals. The recent launch of its dredge-mounted Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how efficient this strategy can be, and the way a lot it could contribute to customers’ bottom lines.

Integrated solutions are what separates tools suppliers from resolution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic supervisor pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits 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 faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive purposes and large particle handling. Its application is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump successfully combines components 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 twin Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing 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 brands, and are carefully combined to provide an built-in solution that saves prospects time and money. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the fabric off website.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear resistance,” he says. “There can be a suction strainer to forestall excessively giant particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside excessive performance ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between one hundred 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 80 mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over time, it has become more systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn into extra numerous,” says Koorts. “The means we have developed this solution reveals the progress lately towards integrating our product lines to add value to our offerings.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups deliver more value than the sum of their element parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists have been able to attract on the most effective expertise from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an revolutionary end result.
“Our extensive footprint within the field and our close collaboration with customers every day provides us a detailed understanding of their specific requirements,” he says. “We can therefore be sure that our improvements are fit for function, being primarily based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
