Industrial Mechanical Evaporators


Ash Pond Dewatering Solutions


As the world shifts away from coal-fired power stations to focus on alternative energy solutions, the need for ash pond dewatering and pond water storage infrastructure is growing.

Led by new guidelines from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), power utility owners are now aiming to remediate basins with ash pond water and stabilisation of wet ash the priority.

MINETEK has developed cost-effective land and floating/pontoon-based water evaporation systems, capable of efficient coal ash drainage, pond water management and the removal of Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) in the process.

With increasing requirements to sustainably manage excess water discharge and meet strict environmental guidelines and regulatory compliance on ash pond management, our MINETEK Water Team is expertly placed to partner with power generation clients to design, manufacture and implement a solution to meet your specific needs.

The ability to deliver equipment on time has been a feature of our dealing and we haven't had a situation where a variation has been requested. The quality of their workmanship has been good and the capability of hardware has been as expected or better than quoted”

I have used these evaporators very successfully at mine sites where I have worked in the past. They are an extremely reliable unit and worked above expectations in the environment where we had them set up. As for spray drift/mist this can be controlled by the weather monitoring systems that are available with the units. Additionally, how you set them up and the amount of fall you can achieve allows for more moisture to be stripped from the droplets]will greatly benefit your overall evaporation rates.
