It is believed by many people that large quantities of water are used in mining operations. But that would be an enormous understatement.
The mining industry is now heavily restricted by governments, environmental organizations, and social pressure. Therefore, many mining companies begin to adopt complex water management.
The method of treating mine water is intricate. Water from rivers, lakes, bores, or pipelines is frequently used by the mining sector for the transportation and processing of ores.
On mine sites, water quality is very essential because different processing circuits frequently require variable water quality to achieve the desired performance and because environmental agencies have severe quality criteria for discharge/disposal.
Water security for mines frequently involves increasing water supply through better water recovery or more water recycling. Brother Filtration has expertise with clients in achieving a variety of goals for the treatment of mine water.
By utilizing the filtration solution offered by Brother Filtration, mining companies can treat groundwater (including hypersaline water) for use on-site, treat raffinate/tailings to recover valuable metals, select removal/recovery of many contaminants, and treat acid mine drainage, tailings water, and process water for process reuse or compliant disposal to the environment.
The content of suspended matter in mine water is much higher than that of surface water, which contains a small volume of suspended matter, light specific gravity, slow settling, and poor coagulation effect. This kind of water needs to be treated and make possible for reuse in mining.
Possibly the biggest problem with mining is waste. Each product from mining for metals and salts typically generates tons of waste, much of which is made up of acidic compounds that can have an adverse effect on the environment or permanently lower a natural water source to dangerous levels.
The quantity of waste generated in large-scale mining operations may be significantly reduced, and it can even be avoided from ever being exposed to the environment, thanks to membrane systems from Brother Filtration that can be specifically built to satisfy any water purification need.
A large portion of this cleansed water can also be used again in the same mining operation, reducing the strain on nearby water supplies. Additionally, it offers a reliable source of water for domestic purposes at the location (showers, sinks, restrooms, etc.).
There is a special type of waste created during the mining of metals called tailings, and on average, one mining disaster occurs worldwide every year.
Tailings are a type of slurry made up of waste substances dissolved in water in high concentrations, creating a kind of sludge that is not only bad for the environment but also unsightly and challenging to get rid of.
It frequently stays in large ponds for decades as heavy substances seep to the bottom and the water evaporates. Arsenic (used in gold mining), cyanide, sulfuric acid, and a variety of other known carcinogens are some of the dangerous substances found in tailings.
The condensing of tailings into big blocks that can be stacked to reduce footprint and no longer pose the risk of seepage into natural water sources is made possible by a ground-breaking method utilizing high-pressure membrane systems

Every chemical plant is inseparable from industrial water filtration systems. Whether it is the purification and filtration of raw materials and final products or the treatment of industrial wastewater and unwanted chemicals generated during the production process, industrial filtration is a top priority.
Most petrochemical industry products are stored in large containers, such as diesel, gasoline, and fuel oil. This type of storage is highly likely to lead to impurities in the products and affect the product quality. Our mission is to offer efficient and reliable filtration systems for the petrochemical industry so that purification is not a big challenge.
The extremely rapid growth of the pharmaceutical industry has created a greater demand for industrial filtration. Whether it’s upstream cell fermentation, purification, or filtration, we can provide the solution. In addition, We are committed to filtration and separation, protecting the reliability and safety of production equipment.
The food and beverage industry is closely related to the daily life and health of each of us. Therefore, we must meet higher standards to filter these products. As your experts, we help you improve product quality, reduce production costs, and safeguard everyone’s health.
Nature itself has the ability to treat wastewater. But with the huge increase in human production and living activities, it can no longer handle such large amounts of wastewater. We, as industrial treatment producers, help nature to share the burden of wastewater treatment.
Industrial wastewater from mining activities contains high volumes of heavy metals, particulates, and residual chemicals. Wastewater must be purified and filtered in order not to pollute our water resources. We help your plant meet wastewater discharge standards.
In order to extract oil more efficiently and conveniently, large amounts of water must be injected underground to ensure water pressure. And since precious water resources are limited, our technology allows wastewater to be purified so that it can be reused.
When it comes to marine filtration, the first scene that appears in people’s is usually the sea or seawater. But marine filtration is more than seawater. A crucial resource on this planet is seawater. Large amounts of seawater are needed to generate fresh water for drinking and irrigation in locations with a lack of fresh water, just as ships sailing on the ocean need a lot of it for ballast water to keep the ship balanced. Marine filtration is not only about the seawater, but also the transported seawater. The ballast water is a kind of transportation of water. The cargo ships load the seawater from one place and discharge it at another port. The seawater traveled with the cargo ship in ballast tanks. This is the point many people will be indifferent about, the filtration before the discharge of the ballast water. People are familiar that we can not drink seawater directly, because it contains large quantities of salt and contaminants. But why do we need filtration for ballast water? it is just the seawater discharge into seawater. With the development of the environmental protection concept and the perfection of the law, we are constrained to filter the ballast…
