FILTRATION SOLUTIONS IN MINING


Prevent spray nozzle blockages, costly maintenance time and equipment damages with strainers and filtration packages customised by the experts at Spraying Systems Co. 

Airborne dust is one of the main issues reported in mine sites across North America. Spray nozzles use water to suppress and control dust from mine to port operations but without proper filtration, the nozzles can breakdown and put your operation at risk or create unnecessary costs.

The water used is pumped from underground water tables or recycled process water which is delivered via metal pipes. The water is high in calcium, dirt contaminants and pieces of corrosion from internal piping which can partially or completely block the spray nozzles, making them ineffective and causing several issues during mining operations.

Filtration packages from Spraying Systems Co. are designed to prevent internal nozzle blockages through the use of selected strainers. Strainers are available in different capacities with varying inlet and outlet sizes to allow water to flow through them at the same rate as it passes through the pipe. There are two types of strainers available; Y-style and T-style. Both work as efficient each other in filtering contaminates in the water. Depending on the requirements of your site, our engineers will let you know which type of strainer is most suited to your operations and are able to customise a filtration package to suit the needs of your mine site.  

Benefits: 

  • Prevents debris from entering the nozzle orifice or vane
  • T-style strainers are able to trap large debris
  • Protect other items in the liquid line, such as pumps
