Case Study: Barrick Gold
What Cleanawater did
Calling on decades of expertise in mining wastewater treatment, Cleanwater identified a hydrocyclone oil water separator as the ideal solution.
So we installed our DEOIL10 hydrocyclone system with a treatment rate of 10,000L per hour. This would ensure waste water was properly treated prior to being discharged into an evaporation pond.
The new system enabled the removal of gantries installed to support the previous oil water separator. That meant pumping-out and maintenance would now be less costly and less time consuming – giving Barrick a significant ongoing saving.
Retrofitting the system to the existing wash bay meant a quick install – saving on costly downtime. The result was a low-maintenance, low-cost water treatment solution that fit the brief perfectly.
- Reduced maintenance and service costs
- Consistent discharge rate in line with environmental guidelines
- Low cost retrofit
- No infrastructure upgrades required
