WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated options are what separates equipment suppliers from solution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, general manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the lately launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how that 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. It is a heavy responsibility hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive purposes and enormous particle dealing with. 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 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 dust to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the components making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed manufacturers, and are fastidiously combined to supply an integrated resolution that saves clients money and time.

This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside high efficiency levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as much as a head of eighty two metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle dimension of eighty mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over the years, it has turn out to be extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and turn into more numerous,” says Koorts. “The method we’ve developed this solution reveals the progress in latest years towards integrating our product strains to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the method of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams deliver extra worth than the sum of their component parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists have been in a position to attract on one of the best know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an progressive outcome.
“Our in depth footprint in the area and our shut collaboration with prospects on a every day basis gives us a detailed understanding of their specific necessities,” he says. “We can subsequently ensure that our improvements are fit for objective, being primarily based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
