Mining Evaporation Pond Water Management

Water Quality analysis & Materials selection

Water Testing


MINETEK performs rigorous in-house water quality analysis and data review to ensure the selection of the most suitable materials for each project.

Understanding the site-specific contents of the water to be evaporated is critical in designing a long-term, cost-effective solution. The makeup of water, including levels of acidity and other included elements can have a marked impact on the overall effectiveness of evaporation, as well as reducing the longevity of equipment used in the process.

MINETEK's evaporator is uniquely designed to be able to process a vast range of varying water qualities. We currently have units operating around the world that are evaporating water ranging from pH 2.2 to pH 12, acid water, caustic water, high TDS and TSS.

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.

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

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.

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.
