CASE STUDY

Student Housing Estate

Problem to be solved:

The client wanted to supply off the grid water to a student housing facility and had access to a borehole. The borehole water was good quality and required very minor treatment to produce potable water.

CASE STUDY

Mining Company

Problem to be solved:

The source water had high TDS and nitrate contamination, making the water unsuitable for drinking.

CASE STUDY

Spirits manufacturer

Problem to be solved:

The client needed to replace and outdated ion exchange system with extreme water wastage. The municipal water source had to be treated to produce electrical conductivity less than 15 mS/cm.

CASE STUDY

Rural community

Problem to be solved:

The client needed to discharge ground water contaminated with manganese into a drinking water supply dam. The client required the project to be complete within 4 weeks.

CASE STUDY

Plastic packaging manufacturer

Problem to be solved:

Cooling towers require chemical dosing to prevent scale, corrosion and the development of biofilm. Additionally, a low conductivity top up system was required to maintain water levels through the system.

CASE STUDY

Mining Company

Problem to be solved:

The only water source in the area was borehole water, which was contaminated with iron. This posed an operation risk to infrastructure as the water was being used for both potable and process purposes.

CASE STUDY

Mining Company

Problem to be solved:

The only water source in the area was borehole water, which was contaminated with arsenic and not suitable for human consumption.

CASE STUDY

Housing estate

Problem to be solved:

A housing estate located outside of the municipal grid supply system was required to provide potable water to the estate homeowners. Borehole water was the only water source, but was high in suspended solids, hardness, dissolved solids and was corrosive.

CASE STUDY

Private Home

Problem to be solved:

The homeowner wanted to get off the water grid and installed a borehole on his property. The borehole water was contaminated with suspended solids, hardness, iron, manganese and organic carbon.

CASE STUDY

Cooling tower side stream

Problem to be solved:

Over time, cooling towers can accumulate suspended solids which cause operational challenges in the system.

CASE STUDY

Water retailer

Problem to be solved:

Problem to be solved: The client wanted to utilise his on-site borehole for his personal use as well as to provide safe drinking water to communities in need. The borehole water was extremely hard and had a high salinity, rendering it unfit for human consumption.

CASE STUDY

Bakery boiler

Problem to be solved:

The industrial bakery makes use of a boiler for processing purposes. The feed water to the boiler is hard, which will cause scaling, and ultimately production losses.
