Weir Minerals launches latest Warman centrifugal slurry pump at Hillhead

The new pump, which features more than 20 individual design improvements on its predecessor, boasts one of the broadest efficiency curves in its class, claims its manufacturer Weir Minerals.

A single-piece frame design looks to provide truer alignment of bearings, seals and impeller with the front liner while also lowering the total number of parts.

The WBH’s new ‘one point’ front liner adjustment system allows operators to both rotate and axially adjust the liner relative to the impeller, even during use.The new design has an ability to continuously minimise the gap between the liner and impeller to reduce wear, increase the pump’s lifespan and reduce downtime.

Specific new safety features to prevent catastrophic failure include standard leak detection, optional vibration, temperature and wear monitoring and the ability to add pressure relief and thermal cut out devices.
