SALINE WATER SOLUTIONS
SALINE WATER SOLUTIONS: MANAGING POTENTIALLY HARMFUL SALTY AND SALINE WATER
Brine is formed in the mining process when brackish groundwater comes into contact with either surface water or sea water. The result is a highly saline by-product which cannot be released back into the environment due to high levels of contaminants and Total Dissolvable Solids (TDS).
Often present in Oil & Gas, Mining, Power Generation and as a specific by-product of the Reverse Osmosis process, brine water presents a significant and costly challenge to industrial operators. With an extremely high salt content, brine water has the potential harmfully impact surrounding environments and must be processed to evaporate contaminants.
With the capacity to achieve Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) Minetek's water evaporators can process 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 saline water evaporation solutions offer versatility and a cost-effective solution to achieving brine water disposal without the need for pre-treatment.
MINETEK will continue to be a favoured technical resource and supplier to the New Hope Group and are recommended as a professional, respected and competent supplier of technical services, equipment and products for noise abatement and other industrial products.
We have placed some difficult demands upon MINETEK. These demands are never an issue, and are met with the enthusiasm and professionalism we have grown to expect from the MINETEK team.
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 have been instrumental in the design of products used on our mining equipment. Our engagement with them is a true business partnership.
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.
