In a process unique to the mining industry, mineral ore must be extracted and conveyed to a means of transportation in a challenging environment. This involves the use of high-power fixed and mobile equipment with complex kinematics. The entire process is carried out in cyclic and variable operating conditions with significant safety and accessibility constraints. Mining operations are also a source of noise and vibration pollution both for site workers and people in the surrounding area.
Complete line of wet scrubbers for all metals mining applications. Scrubbers for removal of acid gases, particulate and mists from acidulation, reaction tanks and dryers. Sulfuric acid, sulfur dioxide, ammonia and hydrogen cyanide removal. Control of micron and submicron size particulate metal fumes from rotary furnaces.
Since mankind`s early beginnings, mining, metallurgy and the subsequent processing of natural resources have evolved into one of the most significant industries. Known as `heavy-industry`, this branch plays an important economic role in most countries. The scope of applications for CTP systems ranges from the mining of natural resources (e.g. bauxite and gold-ore mining), through the production of acetylene gas from coal and calcium carbonate, to the aluminium and steel industry and their foundries.
Dürr MEGTEC provides custom-designed atomizing technologies and air pollution control solutions for the non-ferrous metallurgical industry, including aluminum, copper, nickel, zinc, and precious metals producers. Our evaporative gas cooling and conditioning system controls high-temperature furnace and converter off-gases, lowering them to temperatures below other spray technologies without wetting problems.
Removal of acid gases and particulate from cement, brick and other product kilns. Mineral product dryers including coal. Hot mix asphalt plant particulate control. Sulfur dioxide and hydrochloric acid gas removal.
Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) is a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) released by coal or mineral mining operations, it is also commonly known as Coal Mine Methane (CMM). The air pollutants from this process have a global warming potential 21 times greater than carbon dioxide, which is another well known GHG. As alternative energy technologies have developed, methane is increasingly used to generate electricity and heat. Landfills and mines represent two of the most abundant sources, however reports indicate that more than...
Conventional wastewater treatment systems are focused on efficient removal of polluting components. This is commonly done through aeration and separation of formed biomass from the cleaned water. After treatment the water would be discharged onto surface waters or subsoil irrigation. Introduction of polishing steps after these treatment systems opened up the possibilities to reuse water for either irrigation or even potable water. DMT Environmental Technology also implements these solutions with its MemBioRex...
