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.
