WEIR MINERALS INTEGRATES KEY BRANDS IN MUDFLOW™ PUMP
Integrated solutions are what separates gear suppliers from resolution providers, argues Marnus Koorts, common 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 last year, after being developed in response to a challenge which a customer confronted, says Koorts. It is a heavy obligation hydraulic submersible slurry pump designed for abrasive functions and enormous 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 efficiently combines components of the Warman MGS submersible slurry pump-end, and a custom 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, allowing abrasive and extremely charged slurries and mud to be efficiently pumped. He emphasises that the components making up the Multiflo® Mudflo™ pump are drawn from Weir Minerals proven brands, and are carefully combined to produce an integrated answer that saves clients money and time. It additionally reduces environmental influence, by avoiding the costly and energy-intensive process excavating and trucking the material off site.
“The pump design includes Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy casting for prime 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 excessive performance levels: the Mudflo™ 200 pump is capable of pumping between 150 m3/h and 1,200 m3/h, up to a head of 82 metres. The pump can deal with a maximum particle measurement 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 into more systematic and deliberate as our product range has grown and turn out to be extra diverse,” says Koorts. “The way we’ve developed this solution shows the progress lately towards integrating our product strains to add worth to our offerings.”
He notes that the process of ETO ensures that options developed by Weir Minerals’ engineering teams ship more worth than the sum of their part parts. In this case, the company’s dewatering experts have been in a position to draw on the most effective expertise from Weir Minerals’ Multiflo®, Warman® and Weir ESCO® manufacturers – combining them with advanced hydraulics to create an progressive outcome.
เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำมันเบนซิน within the area and our close collaboration with customers on a day by day basis provides us an in depth understanding of their particular necessities,” he says. “We can due to this fact be sure that our innovations are fit for purpose, being based on our appreciable ETO functionality and technical excellence.”
