WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated options are what separates gear suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, general manager pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump shows how that is done.
This dredge/excavator-mounted, mud-pumping innovation was launched final yr, after being developed in response to a challenge which a customer faced, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive purposes and huge particle dealing with. Unexplored is primarily in reprocessing and relocating tailings ponds, sustaining water retention dams and managing slimes and sludge ponds.
“The Multiflo Mudflo pump efficiently combines parts 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 twin Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation teeth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and highly charged slurries and dust to be effectively pumped. He emphasises that the components making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven brands, and are fastidiously mixed to produce an built-in resolution that saves prospects money and time.

This ensures that the unit delivers optimal uptime alongside excessive performance ranges: 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 handle a most particle measurement of 80 mm, and a most liquid temperature of 35°C.
“While our integration of merchandise has grown organically over the years, it has turn out to be more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn out to be more numerous,” says Koorts. “The way we have developed this resolution reveals the progress in latest years towards integrating our product strains to add worth to our offerings.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that solutions developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams deliver more value than the sum of their element elements. 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® brands – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an progressive result.
“Our in depth footprint in the field and our shut collaboration with clients every day gives us an in depth understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can therefore ensure that our improvements are match for function, being based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
