Water Quality analysis & Materials selection
DELIVERING LONG-TERM SOLUTIONS THROUGH ANALYSIS
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.
We have utilised MINETEK for a number of sound attenuation projects in the Hunter Valley and have formed an excellent relationship with Glencore over many years. MINETEK understand our industry and always provide a solid and professional commitment to meeting our goals and objectives."
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.
Kipoi have successfully utilized MINETEK WATER evaporators on our process water pond to remove mine water and has contributed to help with our water balance. We are currently in the process of moving these units to where the catchment area is larger giving us better utilization of the evaporators.
Our evaporators are still performing flawlessly and working absolutely great. They have been running 24/7 without a single hiccup. Thanks again!”
