WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated solutions are what separates equipment suppliers from resolution suppliers, argues Marnus Koorts, general supervisor pump merchandise at Weir Minerals Africa – and the recently launched Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump exhibits how this 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 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 assembly coupled to a hydraulic motor,” he says. “Another key ingredient is the pairing of dual Multiflo CB33 hydraulic cutters with Weir ESCO excavation tooth.”
The cutters mechanically agitate the settled solids, permitting abrasive and highly charged slurries and dust to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the components making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven brands, and are fastidiously combined to produce an integrated answer that saves customers money and time. It additionally reduces environmental influence, by avoiding the pricey and energy-intensive course of excavating and trucking the material off site.
เกจวัดco2 consists of Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for high wear resistance,” he says. “There is also a suction strainer to prevent excessively large particles clogging the pump.”
This ensures that the unit delivers optimum uptime alongside excessive performance levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is able to pumping between a hundred and fifty m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of 82 metres. The pump can deal with a most 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 become extra systematic and deliberate as our product vary has grown and become extra numerous,” says Koorts. “The means we now have developed this answer reveals the progress in current times towards integrating our product strains to add value to our choices.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering groups deliver extra worth than the sum of their part elements. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts were ready to draw on the best know-how from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® brands – combining them with superior hydraulics to create an innovative outcome.
“Our intensive footprint within the area and our shut collaboration with prospects on a every day basis offers us a detailed understanding of their specific necessities,” he says. “We can due to this fact be certain that our improvements are fit for function, being based on our appreciable ETO capability and technical excellence.”
