WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated solutions are what separates tools suppliers from answer providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common manager pump products at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how that is carried out.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final 12 months, after being developed in response to a problem which a buyer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy responsibility 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 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 twin Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation tooth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and extremely charged slurries and dirt to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the elements making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals confirmed manufacturers, and are carefully combined to produce an built-in solution that saves customers time and money. It also reduces environmental impression, by avoiding the expensive and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the material off site.
“The pump design contains Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high put on resistance,” he says. “There can additionally be Well respected to stop excessively massive particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside high performance ranges: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between 150 m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of eighty two metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle size of eighty mm, and a maximum liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically through the years, it has turn out to be extra systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and become more various,” says Koorts. “The method we’ve 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 teams ship extra value than the sum of their component elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering consultants have been able to draw on one of the best know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an revolutionary end result.
“Our intensive footprint in the area and our shut collaboration with prospects on a daily basis gives us a detailed understanding of their specific requirements,” he says. “We can subsequently be certain that our innovations are fit for objective, being based mostly on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
