Weir Minerals has launched the new Multiflo Mudflo hydraulic submersible slurry pump, designed for abrasive applications and large particle handling, which features a hydraulically driven wet end to safely reprocess and relocate tailings ponds, maintain water retention dams and manage slimes and sludge ponds.
The MultifloMudflo pump is capable of pumping between 150–1,200m3/h, up to 82m head and combines the Warman MGS pump end, Multiflo CB32 hydraulic cutters and ESCO excavation teeth for highly charged and abrasive slurries. Weir Minerals'Ultrachrone A05 chrome alloy impeller ensures high wear resistance, and the suction strainer prevents large solids and debris from entering the pump.
The Multiflo CB32 hydraulic cutters feature the ESCO Ultraloktooth system to prevent premature breakage, avoid tooth loss and protect the integral locking system to ensure the continuous operation of the pump.
The pump can be assembled on land, eliminating the safety risks associated with assembling pumps over water. In addition, the new hydraulic hose management system reduces trip hazards while providing a reliable hose bend radius to ensure smooth oil flow.
