Washing Haul Trucks Mining Industry

Mining equipment washing applications are challenging for several reasons. Aside from the fact that they are very large, mining trucks are difficult to clean. So, for generations, people just used fire hoses to clean the trucks. This meant pumping hundreds of gallons of water per minute to knock off as much dirt and rocks as possible.

But we are changing that with new highly efficient systems that use less water. This is very important since most mine locations are often remote with no sewer connections and are ALSO adjacent to environmentally sensitive areas.

MINING TRUCK WASHING SOLUTIONS:

With our systems, washing is done with a limited amount of water. Typically, we recommend three separate systems: a cold water monitor, a cold water demucker and a heated electric pressure washer.

Water Cannons / Monitors – Cold water monitors placed on rails or stands on the mezzanines initially wash the side and top of the trucks. The monitors will have 360° horizontal rotation and 135° vertical rotation, -45° to +90°. The monitors have variable flow nozzles that typically provide 100 GPM of water @ 100 PSI (378.5 LPM @ 689kPa). Typically, only one monitor is used at a time.

Demuckers – Demucking station reels are placed on the wash bay floor on either side of the wash bay. The hand-held demuckers can provide 20 GPM of water @ 1000 PSI (75.7 LPM @ 6895 kPa). By moving around the truck, operators can remove any dirt and solids missed by the monitors. Typically, one or two demuckers are used at a time.

Both the monitors and demuckers have remote start/stop control panels to permit an operator to control the pump operation. These NEMA-4X control panels include a momentary start switch and emergency stop switch; the start switch initiates a timer in the main control panel to run the pump for a pre-set time period to prevent unintended continuous operation.

Heated Pressure Washers – A heated pressure washer is used for a final wash, degreasing wash or de-icing. Pressure washer reels are be placed on the wash bay floor on either side of the wash bay. Typically, the pressure washer provide 5.4 GPM of water @3000 PSI (20.4 LPM @ 20684 kPa) with 72KW of heat. These systems use a trigger gun activated start/stop with time-delayed shut down.

MINING TRUCK WATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS

The first step in water treatment is solids handling so we help design the best solids settling basin for your particular facility. Water treatment is typically done with a CT-Series wash water reclaim system with closed loop recycling system, capable of processing about 100 GPM (378.5 LPM). The system includes a clarifier oil water separator, fully automated solids filtration, activated carbon (GAC) filtration, an ozone generator, and a polishing filter to treat the water and prevent odors.

The system is designed to be completely closed-loop with no external discharge. It constantly re-circulates water from the raw water tank through the media filter, ozone injector and to the clean water tank. The process generally flows as follows:

  • The water from the wash pad floor initially flows into a two compartment solids collection sump which will be cleaned out periodically. From the sump, a positive displacement pump will pump the water to a clarifier oil water separator which removes suspended solids, oils and greases.
  • From the clarifier separator, water is pumped to a tank and then pumped to the recycle section of the CT filtration system where the water is filtered through a sand media filter, ozonated to reduce odor, and then directed to a second tank. Water is constantly circulated from Tank 1 through the CT Filtration system, and then to Tank 2. The cold water monitor system and demuckers are fed from Tank 2.
  • In the secondary filtration section of the CT system, the fluid is then routed through tertiary filtration that includes a carbon bed to remove emulsified oils and soaps and a final filter to remove solids down to 20 microns. When the pressure washer requires water, the pump will provide cleansed, treated water for usage.
  • An automatic backwash in the CT system occurs daily to prevent the sand and carbon filters from plugging with fines.

All equipment can be installed in a complete 40’ long transportable equipment room (TER-40HC). This will save on building and installation costs, provide protection from the weather and allow you to move the equipment to a different facility if the need arises.

Monitoring System to find oil in water

Do you need an economical way to continuously monitor how much oil is in your water to ensure acceptable discharge levels?

Our Oil Content Analyzer with electro-optical sensing can detect even trace amounts of oil in water flowing through a pipe – and send an alarm if the amount exceeds a certain level.

Applications include:

  • Aircraft and truck washdown facilities
  • Storm water runoff
  • Ground water reclamation
  • Oil Water Separator Effluent monitoring
  • Power plant effluent
  • Industrial process water discharge
  • Fuel transfer station rain water runoff
  • Bilge water discharge monitoring

The design is very straight forward. The monitor is attached directly to the pipe carrying the oil water mixture. Every 8 seconds, a small sample is taken through the pipe wall. A light source shines through the sample and the system measures how much light has been absorbed and translates that into oil concentration. After the measurement, the sample is put back into the water stream.

This oil content value can be adjusted to any level between 2 and 500 ppm (or higher, if needed). When the measured oil concentration is higher than the pre-set value, visual and audio alarms will activate. The alarm relay output can also be used to control valves, pumps and/or an external alarm circuit. Many other options can be added including 4-20ma outputs.

Features

  • Self-Cleaning: Optical surface is cleaned each time it samples and expels water. Reduces maintenance and eliminates errors from fouled surfaces.
  • Completely Automatic Operation: Requires no attention from operators
  • Easily Installed: Just install through piping, no troublesome tubing
  • Reliable Sampling: Provides real-time results every 8 seconds without distortion

Automobile Leak Testing System

For clients who have to leak test vehicles to ensure that there has been no water intrusion after manufacturing or modifications, we have developed a complete leak testing system. Custom engineered to fit your facility and testing protocols, our water intrusion / leak testing systems consist of containment pads, test arches, a water supply system and a fully automated filtration system designed to remove contaminants from the test water so that it can be re-used for a period of time prior to disposal or discharge to the sewer. Designed for commercial and industrial applications, all features of the system are manufactured to insure superior performance and minimal operating requirements.

The containment system consists of a water containment pad constructed of steel or heavy-duty PVC.

Sized to fit your facility and test vehicle, these pads feature entrance and exit ramps and drive over and/or pedestrian grating, if desired. Custom-sized water-proof canvas canopies, PVC curtains or Fiberglass walls are installed on the pad to minimize overspray.

The leak test system is built to fit into the containment system so there is no overflow. Depending on the client’s needs, the leak test system will include multiple side and overhead spray arches, vertical spray posts, and undercarriage spray bars, positioned to provide optimal coverage.  The spray test will last for a client-specified period of time and can be easily controlled by a driver with a remote start/stop key fob.

During the water intrusion / leak test, water is automatically pumped from the containment pad through an initial filter to remove any minor solids and contamination. From there, water is pumped into manifolded water management tanks.  The tanks provide enough water storage to permit proper water balancing during the testing period and the water recovery time. The tank system is equipped with level switches to protect the pumps and to automatically provide for fresh water make-up due to evaporation or drive-off losses. From these tanks, water is pumped back to the test arches, when needed.

In most leak test applications, the contaminants are minimal so this pumping and filtration cycle can last a considerable amount of time. When the water becomes too contaminated to re-use, however, the water can be pumped out or processed through additional filtration and discharged to the sewer.

Containment Pad with Canopy/Walls –

  • Either fiberglass covered steel or HD PVC containment basins

5 Stages Of Oil Water Separation Diagram

5 Stages of Oil Water Separation Diagram

  1. The free oil (150 micron in size or greater) is separated in the inlet quiescent zone.
  2. The settleable solids will flow downward into the hopper section for removal.
  3. The suspended solids and dispersed oil will flow upward through the inclined plates
    section, where most of the suspended solids will slide down the plates into the hopper.
  4. The remaining suspended solids and dispersed oil will flow into the separation
    compartment where the coalescing plates will separate the oil 30 micron or greater to
    the surface for removal .
  5. The flow of water will go over the overflow weir plate into the clean water compartment
    and then discharge to the sewer.
