GIW Industries, Inc. 2009November 2009
Front and Center in the Slurry Pump Industry
Over the last century, GIW Industries, Inc., has made its way to the forefront of the slurry pump industry. The company, located in Grovetown, Georgia (USA), has successfully solved its customers’ pumping problems by acquiring an unparalleled understanding of slurry pumps and systems, and advancing slurry technology—one problem at a time. This translates into pumps that last longer, reduce operating costs, and improve production.
Pumps Built on True Application Testing
Crowds gathered at the GIW booth at MinExpo, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, last September to see the replica of a pipeline slurry loop in action. Designed by the GIW engineering team, the loop helps customers understand the dynamics of slurry pumping systems. The booth demonstration simulated a typical mill cyclone feed application and was driven with an impressive clear casing pump. GIW sales managers narrated the show while the pumping flows of water and colored particles kept the attendees’ rapt attention.
GIW knows that wear life is the most critical factor in the design of a slurry pump. With over 40 technical papers and over 30 years of research, GIW leads the world in wear modeling technology.
Recently, GIW introduced its new Mill Duty Xtra Heavy (MDX) slurry pump. The MDX is GIW’s newest strategically developed product to satisfy customer demand in the hard rock industry. Developed to increase productivity and decrease costs, all MDX pumps are designed to match the life cycle of mill circuit operations. GIW uses system modeling tools to identify the duty conditions and to select the best solution for each pumping application.
As a part of KSB’s worldwide pump and valve group, GIW offers single-source solutions for both water and slurry pump problems for customers from the Ukraine to Chile to China. Together, both companies have over 150 years of experience in pumps and hydraulics. For complicated slurry transport applications, there’s no substitute for that kind of rock-solid experience.
