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
This water generally has a high Total Dissolved Solids 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.
