Accelerated Evaporation Solutions


With Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) having been around since the late 1960's, the focus on mining operations achieving regulatory and environmental compliance has never been more acute. As stakeholder and community expectations grow in regard to environmental sustainability, so have restrictions around the release of contaminated waters into mine surrounds. Explore Minetek's capabilities in assisting mine sites to achieve ZLD.

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.

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.

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.
