GIW Industries Inc. developed the diverter-style WBC matrix hydrotransport pump to improve wear life of the suction liner and impeller. The WBC pump increases efficiency, promotes safety, and provides more effective service. With superior suction performance and large sphere passage, WBC pumps are an excellent solution for long-distance pumping.
Customer case: Major update saves money
One long-term GIW customer recently upgraded pumps originally installed in the 1960s to GIW's new diverter-style WBC pumps.
GIW's WBC pumps provided this customer with improved power efficiencies and increased pumping distance between the pumps in series. In addition, the newer pump designs reduce wear and tear — which means the customer's 40 pumps in the field will last longer. And according to GIW North America Business Development Manager Erkki Kohtanen, the customer is now saving about $550,000 per year.
Customer needs are the driving force
GIW routinely provides value added services such as extensive testing and engineering work. GIW takes individual applications into consideration to ensure the most stable and effective solution for customers, with optimized total cost of ownership (TCO) on slurry pumps. As Mr. Kohtanen said, "GIW's job is to help our customers increase revenue."
