Brine water disposal
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.
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.
MINETEK understand our business, and our requirements, and always display a solid commitment to meeting our goals. We enjoy an open and honest business relationship, and we consider ours to be a lifelong partnership.
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.”
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.
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.
