High-performance, wear-resistant slurry pumps such as the GIW® TBC and the GIW® MDX can handle the most aggressive slurries. Pump designs feature enhanced hydraulic systems and advanced materials, including proprietary solutions for critical wear parts.

GIW Canada Service Center

A Reliable Oil Sands Partner

KSB has worked with Canada to remove and process oil sands bitumen for over 30 years. The GIW® TBC pump is the most operated severe duty slurry pump in the Canadian Oil Sands history.

KSB is well-known for their line of reliable and long-lasting GIW® slurry pumps such as the TBC. However, KSB is more than just a pump manufacturer; we are a solution provider and lend total customer support.

Fort McMurray Service Centre has expanded in order to meet the future needs of the Oil Sands market. We now provide a larger and more efficient area for inventory and repair, maintenance inspection, system efficiency services, technical consultancy, training, and retrofit services. Our repair and rebuild capabilities also include service technicians who assemble to OEM specifications and standards.

KSB strives to be an innovative partner that provides you with the best and longest wearing slurry solutions and service. We are your partner, today and in the future.
