Mining Applications

Mining applications present their own unique challenges. Ground water, by default, typically has a very high mineral count as measured by the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) count in the water.

Mines are often located in extremely remote regions with little or no access to to fresh surface water. As a result, mining operations are often limited to using ground water for everything from potable water for accommodation camps, through to flushing and down hole water systems used in drilling applications.

This highly mineralised water causes ongoing problems for asset owners across the mines processes and infrastructure.

Typical applications where Ecosoft Water Conditioners can reduce system maintenance and increase equipment life cycle include:

Blast Hole Drill Rigs, Jumbos, Diamond Drilling, Cooling Towers, Heat Exchangers, Evaporative Coolers, Hot Water Systems, Accommodation, De-Watering etc

Commercial & Industrial Applications

Hot or cold water, from boilers to cooling towers, if you are in a hard water area, we can help you to save time and money.

Hard Water is any ground (aquifer) water with a Total Hardness count above 120 ppm see the table below.
