Industry leading research and development
Research is the foundational block of KSB products and services. Our research has led to the development of innovative product features and solutions that help our customers succeed.
A recent innovation is the GIW® RAMSL (Remotely Adjusted Mechanical Suction Liner) technology that allows you to make suction liner adjustments during operation. The RAMSL technology reduces downtime and facilitates safe and reliable maintenance while minimizing overhead costs.
In 2022, KSB launched GIW® SLYsight, which is the industry’s latest in wear monitoring technology. While competitor’s systems estimate wear, GIW® SLYsight utilizes custom, strategically placed sensors to measure the actual wear rate of a pump’s parts, while the pump is running.
Superior hydraulic and material technology
KSB’s R&D provides invaluable insights that improve your slurry transport systems and increase operational efficiencies.
The state-of-the-art Hydraulic Lab located in Grovetown, Georgia USA performs pipeline tests on a wide variety of pumps and slurries. GIW is able to test every centrifugal slurry pump it manufactures, with impeller diameters up to 2800 mm (110 inch) in pipelines up to 1200 mm (48 inch). The Lab also has the capability to test slurries in a range of pipe sizes, measuring pump and pipeline solids effect, slurry rheology, solids bed formation, wear, and other important system design parameters.
KSB conducts a broad range of materials testing in our Grovetown Metallurgical Lab. From cutting-edge development on new materials, to the evaluation of parts returned from the field, our materials engineers explore all aspects of materials science related to slurry applications.
Our most recent development is Enduraclad™ bonded parts. This new material coating can extend the life of your parts by 50%, requiring fewer replacements, reducing maintenance costs, and limiting downtime revenue loss.
Our extensive R&D capabilities means that not only can KSB help you select the right pump for your application, but we can provide you with continuous product improvements.
Proven field results
GIW® Slurry Pumps operate all over the globe transporting a wide variety of materials. Wherever mining, dredging and industrial companies have challenging slurry transport needs, we can help.
GIW® MDX - Superior hydraulics and wear-resistant materials make the MDX the most reliable mill duty pump on the market. The MDX 750 pump was installed in a copper grinding circuit transporting class 4 slurry. The pumps run over 4,000 continuous hours, reducing maintenance shutdowns, and saving the customer 6 million USD per line.
GIW® TBC - No other pump can match the TBC‘s production capacity. It is the market leader in the Canadian Oil Sands for high-pressure hydrotransport applications. The TBC-92 was developed in response to a customer’s need to increase efficiencies in their production. The TBC-92 easily achieved the target of 6,000 continuous hours of operation. Longer run times, fewer outages, and increased production in severe duty applications translates to the lowest TCO in the market.
GIW® DWD - When designing pumps for dredging, it is necessary to design the pumps to accommodate a wide range of slurries and operating conditions. The DWD was developed to operate on the Spartacus Cutter Suction Dredge (CSD). The Spartacus was tasked with cutting harder soils and rocks from the seabed at speeds previously not achievable. The DWD features the robust design, efficient hydraulics, wear-resistant materials, and free large passage of rocks needed to get the job done.
