Brine water disposal

Wastewater Evaporation System

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 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 water evaporation solutions offer versatility and a cost-effective solution to achieving brine water disposal without the need for pre-treatment.

MINETEK's 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.

Our evaporators are still performing flawlessly and working absolutely great. They have been running 24/7 without a single hiccup. Thanks again!”

MINETEK have been instrumental in the design of products used on our mining equipment. Our engagement with them is a true business partnership.

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.

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.
