Nirosoft designs, manufactures, and supplies advanced multistage plants for the treatment of mining effluents. Treating mining effluents presents major challenges including remote sites, extreme environmental conditions, significant fluctuations in water quality, and a variety of contaminants.
Each mine requires a tailored wastewater treatment system to ensure the treated effluents meet site-specific conditions and the required quality to allow reuse of the water within the mine, for irrigation and/or discharge to the environment.
A typical industrial or mining wastewater treatment plant could include any combination of the following treatment stages —
- Gravity clarification for the settling of large solids
- Dissolved air flotation for the removal of oils and grease, coagulated solids, and organics
- Multimedia filtration for the removal of residual TSS and turbidity
These stages are usually followed by a high quality pretreatment such as ultrafiltration membranes which optimizes the performance of reverse osmosis (RO) desalination.
