Completed Projects

AQUATHANE is a South African based company, providing services and products to the mining, agricultural and industrial industries throughout the African continent and globally.

Water Treatment & Optimisation Projects – Our commitment towards the environment lead us to offer a service whereby we focus at optimising potable water usage. We offer a strategy, which includes procedural steps from;

  • Information gathering and identification of suitable alternative sources
  • Analysis by independent ISO 14000 Accredited Laboratory
  • Monitoring and evaluations of current procedures
  • Information verification
  • Investigation and trial work on suitable technologies
  • Capital feasibility Studies
  • Final implementation

Thickener Optmisation – We conduct on-site reagent screening tests to ensure you have the optimal product. More importantly, we train your employees to effectively apply and control the application to ensure stable overflow clarities and consistent underflow densities.

AquaTanks combined with world-class Filtration Systems

We are proud to be a storage provider to the South African and African continent – to date, we have delivered a significant amount of AquaTanks since our entry into this market in 2009 and more and more clients and irrigation specialist choose our AquaTank as a cost-effective solution.  We do offer extremely good value for money and are proud to be a local manufacturer of a product that preserves our number one resource: WATER.  Our AquaTanks are extremely durable and present a high resistance to corrosion, due to the AluZink material used in our manufacturing process.

Steel tanks are widespread throughout the world for potable water storage or for irrigation purposes.  Farmers have also used our galvanised AquaTank option, as this is more cost-effective than the standard AluZink tanks. Both farmers and industry can benefit from rain water harvesting and the re-use of grey water.  AQUATHANE can offer comprehensive packaged solutions to recover, treat and re-use these sources, which ultimately boils down to approx. 30% reduction in municipal/potable/borehole water usage.

These AquaTanks are ideal for mining applications, and can be used for process water tanks, clarified water tanks and potable water tanks. AQUATHANE have recently supplied a fire tank as well as a complete containerised “fire pump station” to provide the correct volume and pressure should this unfortunate event present itself.

Since only 3% of the world’s water is considered potable, we’ve decided to extend our product offering to include state-of-the-art Water Treatment Systems, which fits alongside our AquaTanks to treat source water to a SABS approved drinking quality.  We have our own range of Lomanzi Pumps to ensure that we offer an optimised overall price on the turnkey package.

100m3 Process water for underground Coal mine


 

Customer requirements -
New Process water storage tank for newly developed incline shaft.
Scope of work -
Drilling and blasting operations could not start with out water
Solution -
Due to the modular design of AquaTank it was possible to dispatch and install the tank in n short period and the mine could start operations.
Duration -
From manufacturing to commissioning, 1 week.
Result -
Process water now stored and available



Storage of underground water and purification

 

Customer requirements -
Storage of U/G Water for purification and re-use via RO system (500kl) and storage of purified water
Solution -
AQUATHANE design and installation of 3 AquaTanks with a combined capacity of 1500kl.
Result -

Storage of water for uninterrupted supply

 

Application -     
Mining
Scope of work -
Client needed a cost-effective storage solution to ensure uninterrupted water supply to critical operations
Solution -
We installed a IML Reservoir
Result -
Uninterrupted supply now possible


Bottling Plant

 

Application -     
Bottling Plant
Scope of work -
Client needed a cost-effective solution to store raw and semi-treated water
Solution -
Design and manufacture of a storage system that's:

1 - Powder coated
2 - Pre-designed and assembled on all inlet/outlet/scows/overflow
3 - Unique walkway and ventilators
4 - Custom design vortex's on all outlets

Result -
Client can now store and bottle water and soft drinks


Pipeline Systems

Application -     
Chrome Mine
Scope of work -  
Client needed additional drinking water and wanted it distributed across an area of 12,000m2, to various points of use.
Solution -   
A turnkey project was presented to ensure all stations are interlinked. The project included the design and construction of an abstraction point to extract water from a flowing river. Raw water was stored and filtered, after which it was distributed to the various points. AQUATHANE installed 8km of a uniquely designed pipeline to speed up the process.
This cable-lock pipe system, rated at 25bar pressure, allowed us to quickly lay the distance. The entire system operates as a holistic system, with telemetry and radio signals conveying the levels of the various points to a centralised PLC, which also controls the ultrafiltration plant.
Result -
Customer satisfied with project and now uses less borehole water.



Pumping System and Pipeline Installation

 

Application -     
Chrome Tailing Pipeline
Scope of work -   
Mine needed new 5km HDPE slurry line with G/S pumps and slurry pump installation
Solution -   
AQUATHANE handled installation
Result -
Slurry can now be transferred to an alternative
discharge point.


Ultra-filtration Plant


 

Customer requirements -
Customer required clear water for the production of his foundry sand product
Solution -
AQUATHANE custom built a 50kl/hr Ultra filtration plant, which was contrainerised for easy transport and quick mobilization.
Duration:
6-8 weeks
Result -
Customer now uses TSS-free water to wash the final product.


Ultra-filtration Plant

 

4 Mega-litre per day Ultra-filtration Plant. This system treats underground mine water to a potable quality, safe for human consumption. Ranked Top Ten internationally, complete with full system integration and verified integrity determination. The system conducts automatic integrity tests, which protects the user in the event of fibre failure and or potential contamination of treated water. It controls and verifies the disinfection process for ultimate safety and continuous data logging reduced liability. The system is PLC controlled and interfaced with SCADA operating stations.
Result -
The entire mine now has potable, safe drinking water.
