Mining & minerals solutions for acid mine drainage industry - Mining
Acid mine drainage (AMD) is typically characterized by low pH and high dissolved iron. The acid mine drainage may also contain high amounts of CO2 which forms carbonic acid and further depresses the pH.
Industrial solutions for heavy metals removal - Metal
Heavy Metals Wastewater Treatment System (Chrome Removal): Chromium is present in the wastewaters of a number of industries, including: stainless steel manufacturing, protective coatings on metal, magnetic tapes, chrome plating, tanneries, textile dyes production, pigments and paint production, production of cement, paper, rubber, etc. Chromium is typically precipitated in two steps: reduction and precipitation.
Liquid/solid separation equipment for oil sands - Oil, Gas & Refineries
Oil sands or, more technically, bituminous sands, are a type of unconventional petroleum deposit. Oil sands represent a vast wealth of energy reserves for the world rivaling traditional sources in quality, availability and the ability to meet the world`s needs for many years into the future. The technologies for extraction of this resource are increasingly efficient, and WesTech has worked with several companies on the leading edge of these efforts and is a ready partner for new projects and plant upgrades.
Liquid/solid separation equipment for remediation pollution treatment - Water and Wastewater
Landfills are categorized by regulations in three types: industrial, municipal, and hazardous. Individual landfills may be further differentiated by the types of waste which they accept. All landfills are required to be capped, usually occurring at the end of each day. The cap is typically 6-8” of soil. The cap reduces odor and loss due to wind. At the closing of the landfill, a permanent cap consisting of a membrane and more soil is added. Before the landfilling operation begins, an ...
Liquid/solid separation equipment for steel and manufacturing - Metal - Steel
Coke Wastewater Treatment: Heating coal over 1100 Co in the absence of oxygen produces metallurgical coke. This process provides both heat and carbon (coke) required for iron production. During this process the volatile materials contained in the coal are driven off, leaving coke as the product. Gas produced by coking is withdrawn by means of blowers to recover energy-rich byproducts, including methane. Ammonia stills are the principal means of recovery. Recycled scrubber water is used as a coolant. Scrubber waste ...
Liquid/solid separation equipment for coal mining and preparation - Mining - Coal Mining
Coal Preparation Circuit: Three quarters of American coal is mined east of the Mississippi River. Half of this is “prepared” coal. Coal preparation offers a number of commercial and environmental benefits. These include increased quality and commercial value of saleable coal by achieving 75-80% ash reduction and 15-80% trace element reduction. Cleaned coal reduces transportation costs as well as reduced quantities of combustion ash requiring disposal. Coal preparation can also make marginal coal ...
Liquid/solid separation equipment for mineral processing - Mining - Minerals
Through the application of cutting-edge technologies, WesTech helps to assure that the byproducts of minerals extraction processes are made inert, reliably contained, and kept from causing environmental damage. Implementation of WesTech tailings processing technology assures that groundwater, surface waters, wildlife, and communities will be protected from tailings dam leaks and levy failures.
Liquid/solid separation equipment for paste thickening and backfill - Water and Wastewater
Mine backfill is defined as the material used to fill the cavities (i.e., stopes) created by underground mining. Backfilling can be a means to dispose of sludge and/or tailings which may contain hazardous materials and to reduce surface environmental impacts by storing tailings underground. Alternately, backfilling with nonhazardous materials can allow for mining productivity improvements. To these materials are added a variety of fillers such as fly ash, course sand, or gravels along with a binder, such as ...
Liquid/solid separation equipment for tailings - Mining - Minerals
The advantages of paste thickeners in tailings circuits have been well-established for most minerals. The type of paste thickener underflow generally used for surface stacking of tailings is called “thickened tailings.” Thickened tailings are a suspension of solids which are relatively non-settling and non-segregating and which have a higher concentration and viscosity than that of conventional tailings. Common applications include a thickener with underflow pumps that are typically centrifugal and ...
