Dependable Engineered Dewatering Solutions – A Necessity in Mining Operations
Water is crucial in all industries, not the least of which are the projects in mining sectors where operations such as dust suppression, slurry transport, and mineral processing are vital. Without water, or too much of it, operations can grind to a halt.
No two mine sites are the same in terms of water challenges. Agile dewatering planning and equipment is essential to ensuring there is stable supply of process water throughout any mine site. Conversely, the removal of excess water from working areas to allow excavation to continue is one of the major undertakings in mining operations. The processes for this to take place while safeguarding operators and maintaining productivity, means partnering with equipment providers that can deliver reliable and safe outcomes.
Challenges with equipment throughout dewatering operations, if not identified, can prove disastrous and expensive. Factors like the volume and quality of water, such as corrosiveness; the total distance to be pumped; variation in elevation from the pump suction to the discharge point and piping configurations, are crucial in arriving at the right dewatering solutions.
Nothing can be taken for granted when the stakes are high. Thus, all the elements must be reviewed if dewatering operations are to be feasible and safe. Accordingly, all equipment involved in the dewatering process must be durable, reliable, and built to spec, so your project stays the course on time and within budget.
Coerco manufactures a diverse range of Engineered Project solutions including Pontoons and Hose, Pipe, and Cable Floats to support your dewatering operations. From product design to construction, Coerco has the experience and expertise to satisfy your exact requirements and ensure your project is a success.
Take control of your water.
Engineered Pontoons Solutions
One weakness in traditional dewatering systems where pumping equipment is mainly land-based is a potential drop in the pumping pressure, which may be significant enough to put your operations at risk of equipment failure and downtimes.
Dewatering pumps mounted to custom built pontoons offer customer flexibility in mine water applications. Engineered versatile pontoon and access walkway systems minimise suction lift, NPSH and cavitation issues. Coerco dewatering floatation solutions are ideal for multiple configurations and applications, from mining dam pontoons and maintenance barges to floating access walkways.
Advantages of pump pontoons:
- Versatility: Can be designed to handle multiple pumps and different configurations. If the job entails constant relocation, then pump pontoon systems are the perfect solution.
- Inherent safety: Safety in design is an integral part of the Coerco process and access to pumps for maintenance usually involves less risks than alternative options.
- Low Maintenance: Coerco pontoons systems are low maintenance due to a predominately polyethylene construction. High quality marine finishes on any steel components eliminate risk of corrosion.
- Cost-efficient: Polyethylene based floatation systems are very economical based on raw material costs and the fact that they are lightweight and much easier to install. They generally also avoid the requirement of concrete pads or abutments.
