Slurry Training

We offer a comprehensive choice of training courses which teach proven methods to maximize performance and efficiency using GIW® slurry pumping products. Both the Pump Maintenance and Slurry Transport course are hands-on and offered at our world renowned Hydraulic Laboratory in Grovetown, Georgia. With special arrangements, a shortened version of our courses can be provided off-site.


In addition, a web course presented in conjunction with the Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute provides useful guidelines and tools for increasing pumping efficiency.

slurry pump training

We offer training options from slurry theory to pump maintenance techniques through our theoretical, practical and hands-on mix of courses. Whether attending the Slurry Transport Using Centrifugal Pumps Course or the Maintenance Course, participants leave with a deeper understanding of the design, operation and maintenance of centrifugal pumps.

Slurry Transport Using Centrifugal Pumps Course

Slurry Transport Using Centrifugal Pumps Course

The five-day course is designed for university educated engineers. It covers essential practical and economic considerations for slurry pumping with centrifugal pumps along with considerable attention to engineering theory.

In addition, participants learn the latest findings on very coarse particle pumping and pipeline transport at high solids concentrations.

Other features include:

  • Case studies
  • Hands-on group working sessions
  • Slurry testing in our renown Hydraulic Testing Laboratory
  • Lectures on pipeline friction, pump performance
  • Renowned lecturers from Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Sweden and the U.S.

The course features the revised and expanded 3rd edition of the textbook, "Slurry Transport Using Centrifugal Pumps." The book was written by Dr. Kenneth C. Wilson, Graeme R. Addie, Dr. Anders Sellgren and Dr. Roland Clift.
