Operators at a Chilean copper mine got to experience this firsthand. They turned to GIW after years of dealing with poor performing mill pumps. These pumps required a costly mill outage every 800 hours. Leaders of the mine began looking for an alternate supplier that could help them achieve a reliable shutdown schedule, minimize expenses, and meet a high safety standard.

GIW responded by custom-designing an improved suction liner and impeller to be installed inside the existing competitor pump, providing improved hydraulics and wear life.

The mine operators were so impressed with the performance they decided to replace the entire competitor pump with a complete GIW MDX-750, the world’s largest mill pump. This provided them with 2,000 hours of reliable wear life and reduced plant outages to just four per year.

Since that time, technicians at GIW have successfully installed seven total MDX-750 pumps in the mine’s concentrator plant. Once the lines were upgraded to GIW technology, the customer set yet another new target for success: To extend the operational cycle and reduce plant outages from four to two annually.

To accomplish this goal, they would need cyclone feed pumps that could run 4,000 hours between shutdowns with no operational interruptions.

To accomplish this, GIW engineers relied on their proprietary material called Endurasite. Endurasite is capable of resisting the effects of abrasion for extended periods. When applied to the MDX-750 high wear wet-end parts, this ultra-wear-resistant white-iron alloy vastly improves pump wear life and, in turn, extends time between shutdowns.

GIW experts not only achieved the customer’s goal of 4,000 hours of continuous operation, they also managed to exceed it! Annual shutdowns were cut in half, drastically improving the total cost of ownership with an estimated savings of $6 million USD per mill line.

GIW’s continual development mindset has taken the Chilean copper mine’s pumps from 800 to 4,000+ hours of continuous operation. It’s an achievement — and long-term responsibility — that GIW doesn’t take lightly.
