High pressure dewatering system with a 400 gallon Mudwizard®, including two pumping stations composed of Technojet MH50-80 / 5 cascade stage pumps installed at two different levels. The system allows clarification of water from mining operations before being pumped by Technojet stations. All components in contact with water are made of stainless steel and plastic to withstand the high sodium chloride content found in this mine. These Mudwizard® systems will treat the drilling water for recirculation.
This system includes:
- 4x Technojet MH50-80 / 5SS 150HP
- 4x water tank made of HDPE
- All stainless steel piping for saltwater application
- A complete Mudwizard® system in PVC and Stainless Steel to treat up to 60GPM.
With a capacity of over 10,000 gallons per minute, this Mudwizard® system has clarified the water of an open-pit diamond mine. This system is composed of five polymer dissolvers assembled in parallel with a capacity of 2000 gallons per minute each. This system has reduced the MES (suspended solids) while now respecting the environmental standard.
Design and fabrication of a pumping station operated with 2 Technojet MH40-65 / 7 stages supported by a Mudwizard system of 400 gallons per minute. The pumps operate in automatic mode using a level probe. Pump # 1 is turned on when the tank is full and pump # 2 is acting as a backup when the outflow is less than the inflow. The pumps are assembled with a 125HP 3600RPM engine.
Design and supply of a dewatering system for a mine in the Northwest Territories. The main goal of this concept was to optimize the dewatering system of the mine, using a Mudwizard. The ingenuity of this system has reduced the need for the operation of the 400HP pumps, reducing diesel consumption by more than $ 700,000 per year on the site.
The challenge was to manage the project according to the temperature (the quantity of water to be treated during snowmelt is voluminous), and this in a significant time issue. Globally, 45 to 60 days was enough to deliver a project of 105 crates of equipment and 6 Mudwizard cones on 25 trucks.
3,800 hours of manufacturing, assembly, welding and preparation for final delivery were required, in addition to 700 hours completed by our engineering team.
