As with most industrial production processes, there is the
definite need to treat process, service and on-site drinking water to ensure it
is clean and reliable.
Mine water treatment is somewhat unique, as the water can be strongly acidic or
near neutral in pH, or in the case of cooling water, quite alkaline.
This water generally has a high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) content and can
contain metals and contaminants. Not maintaining the correct water balance and
conditions can lead to severe algae and slime build-up, a major concern for
mine management. Having algae-free, slime-free water in systems means lowering
the risk of restricted water flows due to blockages; helps to mitigate loss in
efficiencies; and potentially reduces the impact to the bottom-line that can be
caused by maintenance and downtime costs.
The water associated with mining operations can be managed and effectively
treated by using biocides and other complementary products.
Lonza’s product range has been defined to treat:
- Spray towers and ponds
- Ice and fridge plants
- Ericson dams and reservoirs
- Service water – treated at a quality
that is of drinking water standards
- Mine drinking water
product range includes products suitable for manual dosing and/or can be used
with our range of Lonza Water Treatment Equipment.
