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

The pump 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 reported.

The unique Ultrachrome A05 chrome alloy impeller ensures high wear resistance, and the suction strainer minimizes the risk of clogging. The ESCO Ultralok tooth system prevents premature breakage and loss, and protects the integral locking system to ensure continuous operation, Weir reported.

The solution can pump between 150 and 1,200m3/h, with an up to 82-m head.
