GIW Industries is co-sponsoring a new web-based course on slurry pumping with the USF Polytechnic Florida Industry and Phosphate Research Institute, the Canadian Mining Journal reports. It consists of six modules covering Slurry Pumping Basics, Testing and Evaluation of Slurry, Cavitation, Modeling, Field Work and Maintenance.

The course will cover major findings of the FIPR Institute's slurry pumping research projects and builds on GIW's training and industrial experience with pump systems. Topics covered in the course are applicable to mine managers, engineers, pump designers, operators and maintenance technicians, enabling them to sharpen their skills and improve their technical competence.
