GROVETON, Georgia – GIW Industries is introducing its new high volume froth (HVF) pump, capable of pumping froth without air locking. The HVF provides continuous operation without shutdown or operator intervention. The new hydraulic design removes air from the impeller eye while the pump is running, and that keeps the process moving and improves efficiency. Fewer pumps are required for less capital expense, requiring less water and power usage.

GIW’s HVF pump has been fully tested on froth and viscous liquids. The pump exceeded expectations at a large phosphate company in Finland. The company’s existing pumps were not able to provide the required flow and were air locking at only one-third of their process design capacity. After installing GIW’s HVF pump, the company achieved a flow of 415 m3/hr. The result? A very satisfied customer.

Designed for air-entrained slurries, the pump can be used in phosphate mining, hard rock mining and oil sands. GIW will be offering a live presentation detailing the operation of the HVF pump at the upcoming CIM Conference & Exhibition in Montreal. Or go to www.GIWIndustries.com to learn more.
