Integrated solutions are what separates tools suppliers from answer suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, basic manager pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump reveals how that is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final 12 months, after being developed in response to a challenge which a customer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy duty hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions 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 successfully combines components of the Warman MGS submersible slurry pump-end, and a customized Multiflo designed bearing meeting coupled to a hydraulic motor,” he says. “Another key ingredient is the pairing of dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation enamel.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, allowing abrasive and highly charged slurries and mud 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 mixed to produce an built-in answer that saves customers time and money. It also reduces environmental impact, by avoiding the expensive and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off site.
“The pump design includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear resistance,” he says. “There can be a suction strainer to forestall 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 one hundred fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, as a lot as a head of eighty two metres. The pump can handle a maximum particle dimension of eighty mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically through the years, it has turn into extra systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and become extra numerous,” says Koorts. “The way we now have developed this answer shows the progress lately towards integrating our product lines to add worth to our choices.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups ship more worth than the sum of their part elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering specialists had been able to attract on the best expertise from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an innovative result.
“Our in depth footprint within the subject and our close collaboration with prospects on a day by day basis gives us an in depth understanding of their particular requirements,” he says. “We can due to this fact ensure that our improvements are fit for function, being based on our appreciable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
