Here at 911Water we focus on maximizing water use and water resuse in commercial and mining operations. Water is a precious resource and identifying how to better pre-treat it will optimize plant operations and reduce maintenance downtime and cost.

Water use in mining operations include:

  • transport of ore and waste in slurring and suspension
  • separation of minerals through chemical processes
  • physical separation of material such as in centrifugal separation
  • cooling systems around power generation
  • suppression of dust, both during mineral processing and around conveyors and roads
  • washing equipment
  • dewatering of mines.
  • Water use in manufacturing:
  • Food and Beverage
  • Rubber and Plastics
  • Wood and Paper
  • Primary Metals
  • Transportation
  • Minerals
  • Petroleum (oil and gas)
  • Chemicals

Proper water pre-treatment allows for up to 82% recovery in industrial and and mining operations. We focus in treating well water, surface water and municipal treated water for commercial and industrial applications.
