Count on GIW for Reliable Performance
The most important benefit in mineral processing is to maximize production time and minimize maintenance. GIW understands that uptime is everything! That is why in this time of uncertainty and change we are more committed than ever to providing our partners with an uninterrupted supply of pumps and parts.
GIW Industries, Inc., announced a $42.2 million expansion at their Grovetown, Georgia manufacturing complex. Scheduled to begin in Q3 2019, the expansion will de-bottleneck overloaded areas and add capacity for future growth. The additional 70,000 sq. ft. facility will have cleaning, shot blasting, heat treatment, machining, assembly, and painting areas.
GIW had some notable successes in 2018, including the launch of the new RAMSL automated pump maintenance technology, production of the three biggest slurry pumps in the oil sands, and delivery of the largest double-walled dredge pumps in the world.
According to Jonathan Samuel, VP of Sales & Marketing, “GIW experienced tremendous growth in existing and new business in 2018. Several things have served to build customer confidence and allowed GIW to grow: the performance of our pumps in some of the most difficult and aggressive duty conditions, our ability to innovate and develop new products, and the top-notch service provided by our teams and partner companies. We are proud to serve as a reliable partner for our customers and contribute to their successes.”

Solutions Designed With You In Mind
GIW engineers are always looking for ways to help you lower your total cost of ownership and reduce downtime. Check out our most recent developments.
MDX RAMSL (Remotely Adjusted Mechanical Suction Liner) – commissioned in 2018 this technological innovation allows you to mechanically control suction liner adjustment during operations. This upgrade allows maintenance personnel to adjust their pump suction liners in less time than ever before. What once took a crew an average of 32 weekly work hours now takes a single worker one minute with the simple push of a button. RAMSL has delivered on its promise to reduce downtime and facilitate safe and reliable maintenance while reducing overhead costs.
TBC-92 – the latest in a long line of high-pressure pumps, the TBC-92 provides operators with longer run times, fewer outages, increased production, and a lower cost of ownership. The pump’s sturdy, slow-turning impeller and heavy components contribute to a long wear life that reaches up to 6,000 hours of operation before requiring a wet-end component change.
Predictive Wear Tools – when it comes to part wear, the goal is to achieve the maximum lifespan from wear components and minimize the risk of unexpected outages. Our technicians have developed a device to facilitate measurement and eliminate the guesswork from the process, making measurement easier, quicker, and more accurate. This wear template device reduces downtime by providing operators with reliable and valid measurements of the material loss and remaining thickness to determine when the next pump repair or inspection should occur.
Ven-Bin Workflow Efficiency – inefficient workflow contributes to production losses. Maintenance teams often spend valuable time tracking down small but critical parts such as gaskets, bolts, and packing rings. To solve this problem, GIW has developed an intuitive hardware cart (Ven-Bin) inspired by the Japanese “5-S” organization method to keep every tool and part in one place. The modular design standardizes how millwrights do their work. The Ven-Bin is proof that even small modifications can help to minimize downtime, and boost efficiency during maintenance without sacrificing safety.
From the development of new product lines to optimizing current working methods, GIW is by your side. When you choose GIW, you gain a partner that is dedicated to your success. You can count on us to support you through your simple and most complex challenges.
GIW's TBC-92 is the largest slurry pump currently operating in the mineral mining industry worldwide. It is also by far, the heaviest pump GIW has ever designed for the oil sands.
