Production of Irrigation Water From Chrome to Mine Effluent
Samancor Western Chrome Mines needed to ensure access to valuable resources and prevent spillage into the environment. The requirement was to treat the contaminated underground mine water to irrigation standard.
PROXA installed a water treatment plant for the production of irrigation water from underground mine water. The units were modular and were installed on site on short notice.
Contaminated ground water, with very high levels of suspended solids
- Feed flow rate 1500 kl/day
- Conductivity 200 microS/cm
- Availability 90%
- Reverse osmosis
