Design and creation of a water treatment system to be installed in a tunnel under construction. With a capacity of 450 GPM, this system eliminates sedimentation in the dewatering piping, eliminates the discharge line cleaning process, and facilitates water treatment at the final treatment plant.
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.
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.
Technosub has developed a product line that solve the problems of transporting underground sludge and dirty water.
Pump capacity: 350gpm @ 1180ft
Water up to 20% solid
Very low rotation speed (400 RPM)
Ideal for dewatering of high pressure mine as well as for the development of ramps
