For mining applications, wastewater treatment is the process of removing contaminants from water discharged from mining operations and mineral processing as well as from premises and surface run-off. Wastewater treatment typically utilises mechanical, biological, and chemical processes to remove these contaminants.
Grundfos can supply a whole range of components for the transport, handling and cleaning of stored wastewater and sludge, and for mechanical, biological, and chemical wastewater processes. In addition, complete monitoring, control, and remote management solutions are available if required.
The process of wastewater treatment varies from simple tanks, relying solely on sedimentation, to the refined treatment processes with biological treatment that we know today. Treating process water to re-enter leaching processes, for example, is also a very important activity, reducing substantially the need for raw water supply.
The Grundfos ranges of powerful wastewater pumps are designed for handling drainage, effluent and sewage from mining operations and mineral processing, as well as from the mining town. With efficient single-channel or SuperVortex impellers, Grundfos SE pumps ranges in corrosion resistant materials ensure free passage of large solids, reducing greatly the risk of clogging.
Grundfos mixers and flowmakers offer an optimum, energy-efficient solution for mixing in tanks of any size, creating a bulk-flow with an almost uniform flow-velocity and limited risk of dead zones. These products offer robust design with corrosion resistant materials, easy service and maintenance, and trouble-free operation in difficult environments.
Our complete range of dosing pumps systems are for large or small volumes and based on different technologies, and Grundfos can also supply electronic and electrochemical accessories for complete control as well as PLC-controlled, fully automatic systems for dry material preparation and reliable dosing.
Correct material selection is the most important method of corrosion prevention, prolonging the life span of pumps systems. Grundfos can supply the specialist expertise to help meet your performance objectives, from the initial identification of needs, to the selection, installation, operation, and maintenance of the pumping solution. Furthermore, Grundfos tailors commissioning agreements and service agreements to your requirements, and spare parts kits and on-site recommended spare parts can also be arranged.
