Rio Tinto (Hope Downs) – Ecosoft Water Conditioner Trial

In February 2014 the Mobile Equipment Maintenance (MEM) department at Rio Tinto (Hope Downs) instigated a trial of an Ecosoft Water Conditioner on one of their Caterpillar MD6240 drill rigs.

Problems associated with the build up of scale included:

  • Reduced system pressure and flow
  • Premature system failure
  • Increased maintenance
  • Over heating
