Water Evaporation System
MINETEK was commissioned to design and supply within weeks a complete turnkey package to be fully operating 24 hours per day, evaporating large volumes.Solution and Results:
MINETEK team successfully designed, manufactured, and installed a 316L stainless steel construction with eight (8) evaporator units and a heavy-duty pumping system that was fully automated and integrated into the power plant’s operating system. MINETEK project specialists provided installation support and worked with the Power Plant personnel to successfully commission the system.
The Queensland Government Department of Natural Resources and Mines is responsible for the rehabilitation, care, and maintenance of the world-famous and historic Mount Morgan mine near Rockhampton in Queensland. They needed an evaporation water system for a specific volume per day from the Mount Morgan pit.Challenge:
MINETEK were engaged to design, manufacture, and install a large-scale three-unit water evaporation system at the abandoned Mt Morgan pit in an effort to manage water levels and reduce the risk of unplanned discharges into the Dee River, thus removing the potential impact on the environment.Solution and Results:
After weather modeling and installation-location assessment, MINETEK designed and supplied all aspects of the turnkey system including evaporators, transformers, pumps, pipework, electrical control centre, and cables, and commissioned and trained local maintenance teams. The Mt Morgan system forms a crucial part of the water management plan and has been efficiently operating now for over four years.

In Our Client's Words..
“We found the MINETEK WATER team listened and supported our situation with helpful guidance and advice to layout the evaporator pipework maximising their efficiency. I would highly recommend the units to others needing a cost effective solution to excess water.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
Kipoi have successfully utilized MINETEK WATER evaporators on our process water pond to remove mine water and has contributed to help with our water balance. We are currently in the process of moving these units to where the catchment area is larger giving us better utilization of the evaporators.
“I can honestly say I have found MINTEK WATER a very professional organisation in all the dealings that I have had with them. They have always been proactive and looked for and suggested alternatives to assist me in the delivery of my projects whilst still working on the original concept.”
“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”
“Our evaporators are still performing flawlessly and working absolutely great. They have been running 24/7 without a single hiccup. Thanks again!”
