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.

MINETEK initially provided products for heavy mobile equipment noise abatement at the New Acland Mine. These 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.

After investigating a raft of different methods from sprinkler systems through to desalination systems (too costly for little benefit) we decided on the MINETEK WATER units. The evaporators were easy to install and once activated ran trouble free. We were very happy with the service from MINETEK and the reliability of the system.
