Weir Minerals recently launched the new Multiflo Mudflo hydraulic submersible slurry pump. Engineered for abrasive applications and large particle handling, the pump features a hydraulically driven wet-end specifically designed to efficiently and safely reprocess and relocate tailings ponds, maintain water retention dams, and manage slimes and sludge ponds.

The innovative solution combines the Warman MGS pump-end, Multiflo CB32 hydraulic cutters, and ESCO excavation teeth to provide efficient pumping of highly charged and abrasive slurries.

Weir Minerals’ Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy impeller ensures high wear resistance and the specially engineered suction strainer minimizes the risk of clogging by preventing large solids and debris from entering the pump. The Mudflo pump is capable of pumping between 150 and 1,200 m3/h, up to 82-m head.

The CB32 hydraulic cutters feature ESCO Ultralok tooth system to prevent premature breakage, avoid tooth loss and protect the integral locking system to ensure the continuous operation of the pump. The new hydraulic hose management system reduces the risk of hose entanglement and trip hazards, all the while providing a reliable hose bend radius to ensure smooth oil flow.
