Mining solutions provider FlowCentric Mining Technologies have attained huge success by providing Rhino mechanical evaporators and other tailor-made solutions to local and international markets since 2015.
The Rhino mechanical evaporators are specifically designed to assist with the dewatering of mine wastewater. Enhancing evaporation of this water with the Rhino evaporators proves to be about 10 times faster than an evaporation pond, and about 15 times more cost effective than any other attempted treatment thereof.
Another benefit is that, with the company’s mechanical evaporation technology, the need for additional wastewater ponds is not necessary. This results in huge cost savings to build new plastic-lined dams, as well as avoiding additional environmental threats.
With more than 130 units having been sold to date, locally and internationally, FlowCentric Mining has 4 models available to ensure ultimate customer satisfaction.
The available models, and their flow delivery, include 11 kW – 29 m3/h; 22 kW – 45 m3/h; 45 kW – 90 m3/h and 75 kW – 144 m3/h units.
Each project is designed to ensure the most cost effective and environment-friendly benefits to FlowCentric Mining’s clients. One of the variables of such a design would be to first take into consideration the water quality, to determine the correct equipment specifications needed for such a project.
The company is fully capable of dealing with severely aggressive water with pH factors that vary from 2 (acidic) to 11 (alkaline)
FlowCentric Mining Technologies is proud of scientifically developing a formula to determine the exact evaporation factor with its Rhino Evaporators. Evaporation differs from province to province, and therefore the company established a need to formulate a calculation methodology that considers all external factors such as temperature, wind speed, humidity and others, each of which has an influence on a droplet during evaporation.
This calculation is extremely important, as the company’s expert engineering and sales team make use of this formula to determine the correct capital expenditure (capex) and operational expenditure of a project. FlowCentric Mining’s esteemed customers are hugely appreciative of such accurate predictions made in advance, as it allows them to ensure that their budget forecasts can be reached.
FlowCentric Mining Technologies is equipped to design and install state-of-the-art atomised electrical equipment, which, in turn, provides the client with the luxury of a remote operation that can be screened and monitored on a dashboard.
As operators and manufacturers of the locally produced Rhino evaporators, FlowCentric Mining offers a maintenance option for each installation and employs a specialised team of technicians to be on site daily. Part of their job execution is to remove the buildup of sulphates on the equipment that could cause severe corrosive and misbalancing side effects of the equipment.
As the leaders in the market of mechanical evaporation in South Africa, FlowCentric Mining is on a constant journey of research and development to improve the design, material and technology of its innovative models to keep delivering the most cost effective, safe and productive units locally and internationally.
