GROVETOWN, Georgia – The design of a new hydrocyclone available exclusively from GIW Industries reduces rebuild time by as much as 75%. It also boasts a significantly longer wear life and shorter maintenance times than traditional hydrocyclones.

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, according to the manufacturer.

Manufactured in the United States, GIW hydrocyclones are made for high wear environments. Tongue-and-groove mating surfaces foster precision alignment. Long lasting urethane and ceramic cones and powder coated steel construction resist corrosion and damage from abrasion, acid, oil, hydrocarbon, phosphate, potash, and high temperatures, increasing the life of the product.

These hydrocyclones have superior resistance to tramp and oversize materials, thanks to its reaction bonded silicon carbide (RBSiC) and polyurethane construction. The patented design makes the GIW hydrocyclone perfect for use in primary ball mill, aggregate, tailings, regrind, coal-preparation, dewatering, and phosphate/potash processes.

The GIW Hydrocyclone is available in eight sizes, ranging from 63.5 mm to 840.0 mm. Repairs and rebuilds can be performed in place or on a build stand.
