GIW Introduces Patented Hydrocyclone
GIW Industries puts an exciting new spin on mineral processing.
GROVETOWN, Ga. (September 14, 2012) - GIW Industries, the leader in the design, manufacture, and application of heavy duty, centrifugal slurry pumps, has announced a groundbreaking new hydrocyclone design that reduces rebuild time by as much as 75 percent.
The GIW Hydrocyclone, covered by more than 20 U.S. and global patents, has significantly longer wear life and shorter maintenance times than traditional hydrocyclones. As a result, customers enjoy less downtime, less expense, and less frustration than ever before.
Fresh, innovative design reduces downtime by up to six hours. Most hydrocyclone manufacturers are basically producing the same designs that they have been using for the past 50 years. In contrast, the GIW Hydrocyclone is the result of a fresh, original look at mining-processing needs and modern technology.
GIW's straightforward tie-bolt and clamp design is a breeze to install and maintain. Seven fasteners are all that is needed for a complete rebuild. A twist-to-lock option simplifies apex removal and service, and drop-in, glue-free liners reduce build time. By adding weep holes for early wear detection, customers can virtually eliminate unplanned outages.
"We offer a lot of features that no one else can," says Mark Davis, GIW Mill Products Manager. "An unplanned outage can cost anywhere from $50,000 to $150,000 per hour in terms of lost production, labor, and other overhead. We offer a longer wear life, and our cyclone takes a quarter of the time to rebuild, when compared with competitors' cyclones."
That equals a typical rebuild time of just two hours - a time savings of up to six hours and a potential financial savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
