4 Tips for Selecting a Pump Supplier

Posted By
GIW Industries



For 150 years, KSB has been creating, installing, repairing, and maintaining pumps and valves. We’ve been at the forefront of the mining industry in some of the toughest conditions, and we apply that toughness to our service standards. Here are four reasons why you should choose KSB as your pump supplier.

#1: A history of service

The pump supplier field is and always will be about customer service. The KSB Group is renown in the marketplace. KSB has 150 years of experience in water pumps, valves, and service; GIW Industries (a KSB company) has 130 years of experience in slurry pumps and slurry transport. There are a lot of new players in the market. Invest in a name you can trust.

KSB is service-driven. Our high-performance, low-maintenance pump solutions are coupled with the best in customer care. All of our products deliver long wear life and easy maintenance.

#2: Select the right pump for your application

Choosing the right pumps for specific slurries can help pump owners avoid unnecessary maintenance, repairs, and related downtime. In addition, proper pump applications make for safer work environments, offering those working on or around pumps peace of mind. Perhaps best of all, purpose-chosen slurry pumps also have longer wear lives, boosting owners’ bottom lines.

Those with unique slurry pumping requirements need not fear. Based on data from over 3,000 centrifugal slurry pumps, our proprietary pump selection program called GIW® SLYSEL and KSB Select can help prospective pump owners get what they need down to their exact specifications. Plus, SLYSEL can help pump operators ensure they’re operating pumps correctly — from properly calculating performance curves and pipe friction loss to evaluating other operational factors and pumps themselves — reducing room for error and maintaining pump longevity. Under KSB Mining, we offer a full package of pumps that include process and slurry products.


#3: Check availability and cost of spare parts

Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts are critical. Don’t trust part replicators or pirated parts. Trust a company that has a handle on its supply chain and can help you forecast the parts available.

We know there is pressure to minimize operational costs. This makes non-OEM spare parts tempting as a shortcut with a positive bottom-line impact. But the upfront cost-savings will be mitigated by parts that cause more harm to the pump than benefit.

It’s not just the initial cost of the pump or the spare parts, either; you need to consider installation, energy costs over time, and maintenance.
