WATER EVAPORATOR Emergency Response

EMERGENCY WATER MANAGEMENT

In extreme weather events, it is essential to have an emergency water management plan in place to protect the safety of workers and the community. While some risks, such as flooding, can be difficult to prevent, others, such as dam collapse, can be mitigated by having a quick response plan in place.

Flooding is one of the most common natural disasters in the world, accounting for 39% of all such disasters since 2000. It affects more than 94 million people each year, causing them to be displaced from their homes, exposing them to unsafe drinking water, and putting them at risk of injury or death. The increasing population density in flood-prone areas makes the accurate forecasting of floods essential to disaster management and preparation. Flood forecasts provide vital information that can be used to evacuate people to safety, protect property and critical infrastructure, and save lives. Early warning systems that make use of technology such as satellite imagery and weather radar can give communities advance notice of an impending flood, giving them time to take action to minimize the damage.

The water evaporator emergency response to and recovery from unplanned water management incidents is vital in the industry to maintaining operational, economic and environmental efficiency. Extreme weather events including excessive rainfall or rapidly changing climatic conditions can negatively impact operations, reducing a mine's ability to operate in the short term or even worse, permanently.

Similarly, water evaporator emergency response operational oversights including overflowing pit lakes or catastrophic infrastructure failures including dam bursts create significant risks to mining site operators around the world.

To reduce these risks, MINETEK has developed rapid-response capabilities with the potential to react to water emergencies anywhere around the world with an experienced, dedicated team on standby 24/7.

Our water evaporators and pit dewatering systems provide a cost-effective, short-term solution to manage pit flooding and overflowing containments, enabling mines to quickly return to operation and reduce costly downtime.

It was completed with no incidents or injuries, with no delays, and ahead of schedule. The plan was for 10 shifts, and it was completed in 7 shifts.

After investigating a raft of different methods from sprinkler systems through to desalination systems (too costly for little benefit) we decided on the MINETEK WATER units. The evaporators were easy to install and once activated ran trouble free. We were very happy with the service from MINETEK and the reliability of the system.

MINETEK initially provided products for heavy mobile equipment noise abatement at the New Acland Mine. These installations have been very successful and prompted the contracting of MINETEK to conduct a full mobile fleet and fixed plant noise monitoring assessment at the Acland mine site.

The relatively small fans allowed us to utilise our existing bulkhead, where we were severely limited by space, which allowed us to use our existing infrastructure and dramatically reduce downtime in the mine during the change out. The installation was completed safely... and allows us to scale our ventilation flow with their pressure on demand system to suit our production profile.

Saracen Thunderbox Underground Manager

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.
