KSB announces important growth of the GIW MDX product line

KSB has introduced what it says is a major enlargement of the GIW MDX product line, with the the MDX-850.
KSB’ pressure gauge octa of GIW slurry pumps is designed to make sure optimum wear efficiency in harsh situations. The GIW Mill Duty Extra Heavy (MDX) product line is specifically engineered to deal with the extreme conditions found in hard-rock mining applications, the corporate stated.
“Mining operators are seeing an increased demand for minerals and ores,” KSB defined. “Operators must now think about the prices of pump upkeep and replacement as nicely as the cost benefit of utilising fewer bigger pumps versus several smaller pumps to perform the identical work.”

The bigger MDX-850 is the answer for operators who want to reach greater production ranges while sustaining a decrease total value of possession, according to the company.
It added: “The MDX is widely considered the most effective cyclone feed pump obtainable for the mining industry, so extending the MDX product line was a pure alternative.”

The MDX-850 is a major step up in dimension, with an 850 mm (34 in) discharge and a pair of,600 mm (102 in) impeller compared with 750 mm (30 in)/2,350 mm (92 in) of the MDX-750, previously the biggest MDX pump. Design options of the MDX-850 also embody a wide range of enhancements utilized to the MDX vary in latest years, such as an elevated pump width to allow for improved diverter design, and a thickness increase in important areas of the impeller to enhance operation and wear life. Thickened impeller vanes, solid in proprietary GasiteTM 28G and EndurasiteTM, improve put on life, so the lifecycles of wet-end elements match scheduled downtime, KSB stated.
The MDX-850 options an improved interface between the suction liner and the suction plate, which allows for the utilization of a wear ring and hydraulic options at the pump inlet. As with all GIW MDX pump assemblies, the MDX-850 has an adjustable suction liner. The MDX-850 is compatible with the GIW RAMSL (Remotely Adjusted Mechanical Suction Liner). RAMSL know-how makes for faster and more correct nose hole changes, KSB explained.
The MDX-850 is designed with excessive efficiency in mind.
Amy Lewis, KSB’s MDX-850 Product Manager, stated: “A significant period of time and a spotlight was dedicated to the impeller hydraulics to make sure it would provide the most effective efficiency. The MDX continues to be the best choice in mill circuit pumps and the 850 promises to shatter the obstacles stopping customers from achieving most efficiency.”
