DE-MINERALISED WATER FOR ONSHORE GAS PLANT

A MAK Water treatment system allows you to utilise local water sources such as groundwater, surface water or sea water, to produce water suitable for industrial uses or for potable/drinking water supply.

A MAK Water wastewater treatment system allows you to treat a wastewater source, such as industrial effluent or contaminated storm water, to a level suitable for compliant discharge, or for reuse.

A MAK Water sewage treatment plant allows you to treat sewage to a level suitable for compliant discharge, or for reuse.

Water treatment for Sugar Manufacturer

PRODUCT

Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO)

INDUSTRY

Manufacturing

LOCATION

Queensland

BACKGROUND

A large sugar manufacturing company undertook a $75 million expansion project including a green energy power plant at its Tableland Mill. The new power plant utilises 100 per cent renewable sugarcane fibre known as bagasse, to create heat which is used to generate power via a steam generator set. Once commissioned, it will produce 24 megawatts of electricity – enough to power 26,280 homes – which not by coincidence, is the entire population of the Tableland region. The power plant required ultra-pure demineralised water for the plants high pressure steam boiler. The company charged with delivering the power plant engaged…

UV Disinfection (UVD)

INDUSTRY

Municipal

LOCATION

South Australia

BACKGROUND

As part of a major upgrade to the Christies Beach WWTP in 2011-12, an in-channel Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system was installed to disinfect the secondary treated effluent from the C-Plant submerged membrane bioreactors. Treated water exiting the UV disinfection plant is discharged to an off-site reuse scheme or discharged to a marine environment, and reticulated for onsite reuse. The C3500™D UV system supplied by Calgon Carbon UV Technologies, was selected for the project.

SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT UPGRADE

PRODUCT

Internal Fed Drum Screen (IFDS)

INDUSTRY

Mining

LOCATION

Pilbara, Western Australia

BACKGROUND

A large mining company approached MAK Water as their mine site was plagued with ongoing issues surrounding unscreened wastewater entering their sewage treatment plant. Increased maintenance requirements and premature failure of downstream equipment motivated the mining company to reach out to MAK Water – The Smart Water People with a documented history of providing effective wastewater solutions. MAK Water proposed a solution to screen the wastewater and effectively treat the source water by removing all solids less than 2mm eradicating equipment failure downstream and meeting the client’s key requirements of affordable, low maintenance and turnkey solution.

PH ADJUSTMENT BATCH

PRODUCT

pH Adjustment Batch (PAB)

INDUSTRY

Manufacturing

LOCATION

New South Wales

BACKGROUND

In late 2018 MAK Water was approached by a large family owned business in Sydney to provide a suitable solution to their increasing volumes of trade wastewater from their manufacturing process. The business was producing approximately 7-8 thousand litres a week of mildly acidic wastewater that they were paying to be disposed of by a liquid waste company as the pH was too low to be suitable for disposal into Sydney Water’s sewer system. The volumes being removed were relatively small compared to other companies so having a system that could meet the discharge specification and be cost effective was…

Sodium Hypochlorite Disinfection Recirculated (SHDR)

INDUSTRY

Infrastructure

LOCATION

Geraldton, Western Australia

BACKGROUND

A corrective service centre located near Geraldton in WA approached MAK Water to review the operations of their Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP). The current treatment process was not achieving the required standards set by the Department of Environment for its treated effluent, and therefore MAK Water’s objective was to provide a long term solution that would not only improve water quality but reduce ongoing operation costs and promote operator safety. MAK Water was able to diagnose two main reasons the current system was failing, firstly inadequate contact time for the disinfectant to affectively work and the monitoring ability of…

Mining

LOCATION

Goldfields-Esperance, Western Australia

BACKGROUND

The owner of a lithium mine undergoing expansion near Kalgoorlie in Western Australia required assistance with upgrade of the existing water infrastructure to provide a reliable supply of water for the new processing plant. With limited availability of fresh water the focus was to provide a water treatment to re-use existing process water.  MAK Water worked closely with the owner to design the best possible solution, which allowed for multiple feed sources of varying quality.  The whole process consisted of four new water treatment plants and upgrade of an existing plant to achieve the required outcome. A UF plant was…

Oil Water Separator (OWS)

INDUSTRY

Mining

LOCATION

Queensland

BACKGROUND

When discovered in October 2013, Gruyere was one of the largest undeveloped gold deposits in Australia. In 2017, MAK Water supplied several water and sewerage treatment plants for the project’s mine site and accommodation camp. In 2018 an Oil Water Separator was needed to treat oily wastewater from the site’s workshop, diesel storage area and the LV wash-down facility; the treated water is then pumped to tailings. MAK Water’s Clearmake brand of vertical tube coalescing separator was selected to meet the site environmental license. In addition to supply of the Oil Water Separator, MAK Water also provided the process and…
