Water treatment equipment and supplies

Mining industry | Equipment and supplies for treating used water


In mining, potable water is used in different processes.

  • Mineral extraction: Water is used in the leach mixture to assist in separating valuable minerals from unwanted materials.
  • Mineral washing and processing: Potable water is used to rinse and clean the minerals after extraction.
  • Equipment cooling systems: Potable water is used to cool drilling rigs and other heavy equipment used in mining.
  • Dust control: Potable water is used to control dust and reduce the emission of airborne particles.

It is important to emphasize that the responsible and sustainable use of potable water in mining is crucial to minimize its environmental impact and protect water resources.

Gold recovery with coconut shell activated carbon.

Activated carbon is used in gold recovery in mining through an adsorption process. Activated carbon is an organic material with an internal structure of high porosity, which gives it a large surface area. This process is carried out after cyanidation.

The activated carbon is loaded with the cyanidation solution to adsorb the gold, which is the first step in gold recovery. In addition, microporous activated carbon is effective for gold adsorption, especially if it is made from coconut shell.

We offer an activated carbon “Carboro” that is specifically designed for the recovery of gold and silver cyanides in mining.

Equipment and supplies to treat water used in the mining industry.


The mining industry is one of the most important in the world, with a global value of US$8 trillion. It contributes significantly to the gross domestic product (GDP) of many countries, as well as providing employment for millions of people around the world. Mining operations require water for cooling, fire suppression, dust suppression and accident cleanup; however, these activities also produce large quantities of wastewater that must be treated before it can be discharged back into natural water bodies such as streams or rivers.

Activated carbon is a good adsorbent that finds application in the separation of gases and liquids.

Activated carbon is a good adsorbent that finds application in the separation of gases and liquids. Adsorption is a process in which molecules are adsorbed on the surface of the adsorbent. The surface area of the activated carbon available for adsorption is large, so it can remove impurities from water very effectively.

Activated carbon purification is used in industrial processes such as temperature and humidity controlled environment systems, cooling towers, boilers and gas scrubbers, where it removes odors or toxic gases such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx).

In addition, activated carbon is used in therecovery of gold from a cyanide leach solution.

Adsorption for water treatment is a technology for the removal of impurities from water.

The adsorption process is used in water treatment to remove impurities. Adsorption is a method by which contaminants are captured by a solid substance and retained in it until they can be removed. This can be done by simple filtration or by using activated carbon, which is an example of an adsorbent material commonly used in mainly industrial environments.

Mining processes require adequate drinking water.

Although it may not seem like it, mining requires a lot of water. In fact, it is one of the largest expenses of any farm. Mining processes require an adequate amount of potable water to allow optimal operation of the facilities and minimize their impact on the environment.

Potable water is used to cool drilling rigs and other heavy equipment; potable water is used to clean the minerals after mining. There are many ways for miners to provide drinking water without ruining themselves or damaging local ecosystems.

Activated carbon and water treatment systems are a good ally to meet quality parameters and supply water for the needs.
