With more than 40 years of dewatering experience, and over
140 years of engineering and materials development, Weir Minerals
leads the way in premium dewatering solutions.

The Multiflo® MF range can be fully


customised to suit mine specific applications:
• A range of corrosion and wear resistant
materials are available to suit aggressive
mine water.

Reliable, long lasting equipment • A wide combination of engines and


wet-ends can be provided to optimise
Our flagship, self-primed, diesel-driven
pumping performance.
Multiflo® MF pump units are custom-built to
deliver reliable performance under the most Customised options are available including

units were designed and manufactured to
provide a purpose-built solution to reliably
and efficiently pump-out open cut mining
pits. The vacuum primed MF range of pump
units are capable of pumping not only water
against high head situations, but also large
quantities of solids and slurries from the
open pits.

Vactronic™ priming system

The Vactronic™ vacuum priming system


automatically takes control of priming the pump.

When the Multiflo® MF pump unit is Waterloss shutdown


started, the Vactronic™ priming system will Waterloss shutdown is another feature of
quickly and efficiently lift the water up into the Vactronic™ priming system. If there is
the priming tank and the pump will then be no more water to be pumped, the level in
primed. Once the water in the priming tank the priming tank will fall below the lower

vacuum pump will disengage. If at any time shut down the pump unit.
the level in the priming tank drops below
the upper probe, the drive will re-engage
and lift the water up again to the probe
level. This system is designed to prolong
the life of the vacuum pump as the pump is
only operating when required.

Mounting options

No matter what conditions your Multiflo® pump is operating


under, we can deliver a heavy duty, mobile mounting solution.

Our mounting options are engineered


to deliver reliability in the harshest
mining environments. We offer several
mounting options:
• Heavy duty skid bases
• Mine trailers
• Steel pontoons
Heavy duty skid bases
(pictured below)
The heavy duty skids are fitted with a dozer
push-bar, tow chains and Bisalloy** wear
plate. The Multiflo® MF pump unit base is
easily removed from the heavy duty skid
allowing easy replacement of wear plates
when required.

Mine trailers We deliver the complete pontoon and
Mine trailers are available for our smaller pumpset. This means you will not need
pump units. These heavy duty trailers to deal with separate suppliers, helping
are designed to survive the harshest of to reduce lead times and ensure easy
mining environments. assembly and installation.

Our pontoons are sized to suit the specific

hulls are designed with multiple air tight
flotation cells. The pontoons are able to be
pushed or towed around a mine-site, just
like the heavy duty skids.
