Pumps are designed for severe, mill-duty applications.
June 30, 2008 -
Used in hard rock mining, MDX series has low specific speed that provides stable operations by harnessing variable flow conditions confronted in modern mills. Stable flow in combination with optimum head/quantity and efficiency curve ensures efficient mill operation. Also, optimal BEP ensures stable sump level over large flow variations, operational efficiency, and equipment life. Pumps also incorporates slurry diverter technology matched with adjustable suction liner design.

"Rock Solid" Mill Duty Solutions
Pumps for severe mill duty applications
Every mill circuit operator knows that maximum plant efficiency depends upon matching equipment to scheduled operating cycles. GIW continues to offer non-stop solutions with the introduction of the new MDX pump line for hard rock mining.
The MDX pump, the heart of the mill circuit, tackles the most extreme duty conditions. The low specific speed of the MDX pump provides stable operations by harnessessing the variable flow conditions confronted in modern mill circuits. Stable flow in combination with an optimum head/quantity and efficiency curve ensures efficient mill operation. In addition, a large BEP "sweet spot" ensures stable sump levels over large flow variations, high efficiency operations, and longer equipment wear life. Longer wear life extends operating cycle times to match scheduled mill outages. Fewer unscheduled outages and more up time translates into greater production and profits.
All MDX pumps are outfitted with GIW's patent pending slurry "diverter" technology. The diverter dramatically increases suction liner life by reducing particle recirculation between the impeller and the suction liners. The MDX pump matches this patented diverter with our adjustable suction liner design to further extend suction liner wear life and meet predetermined maintenance intervals. The optional application of metal, rubber, or ceramic materials further expands the service alternatives for optimal wear life configurations.
Nicknamed the "Big Iron" by the GIW selling team, the successful completion of 2 years of field testing have generated increasing excitement in hard rock mining and has dominated the competition in all side by side trials.
