Copper Mine Hire

Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO)




One of the copper mines in far north QLD was replacing the Bulk Air Cooling (BAC) systems onsite and had a temporary requirement to treat the surface water to below <50 mg/L TDS to feed the BAC’s. This is to reduce scale and corrosion issues and minimise the downtime and maintenance requirements during operation. The surface water feeding the Reverse Osmosis (RO) system fluctuates in quality and total suspended solids (TSS) becomes quite high during rain events so this had to be taken into account for the hire solution.

  • Containerised system provided for plug and play installation
  • Fast six week lead time for plant supply
  • ClearAccess™ Remote access
