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

Integrated solutions are what separates equipment suppliers from resolution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic manager pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how this is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched last yr, after being developed in response to a problem which a buyer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and enormous 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 efficiently combines elements of the Warman MGS submersible slurry pump-end, and a custom 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 teeth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and highly charged slurries and mud to be effectively 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 clients money and time. It additionally reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive course of 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 stop excessively massive 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, as a lot as a head of 82 metres. Child’s play can handle a maximum particle size of eighty mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of products has grown organically over time, it has become extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and become more numerous,” says Koorts. “The method we’ve developed this answer reveals the progress lately toward integrating our product traces to add worth to our offerings.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups ship extra worth than the sum of their component parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts had been ready to attract on the best know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an revolutionary outcome.
“Our extensive footprint within the field and our close collaboration with customers each day offers us a detailed understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can therefore make certain that our improvements are fit for purpose, being based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
