Process Water disposal
ON SITE, COST-EFFECTIVE MINE WATER MANAGEMENT
A by-product of all mining is process water and the need to store, transfer, treat or remove it to ensure regulatory compliance is universal.
Due to the nature of mine processing, water can become highly contaminated. The mining industry uses large amounts of water for mine processes including washing ore and mine tailings impoundment. As such, mine process wastewater is often polluted with heavy metals and metalloids that necessitate expensive treatment before it is released into the environment or used for any other purpose.
With the capability to evaporate water with high levels of Total Dissolvable Solids (TDS) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) and pH range as low as 1.8 and as high as 14, Minetek's water evaporation solutions offer versatility and a cost-effective solution to managing mine affected and process water without the need for pre-treatment.
Good product with great service leads to a great outcome. My dealings with MINETEK WATER and their supply and service of evaporator fans was one of high quality. I installed 10 evaporator fans on climate control to maximise efficiency and the results were incredible. From the first meeting through to commissioning nothing was a problem for the MINETEK WATER team. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with water disposal issues.
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.
We have utilised MINETEK for a number of sound attenuation projects in the Hunter Valley and have formed an excellent relationship with Glencore over many years. MINETEK understand our industry and always provide a solid and professional commitment to meeting our goals and objectives."
Our evaporators are still performing flawlessly and working absolutely great. They have been running 24/7 without a single hiccup. Thanks again!”
