In November 2016, CC HydroTM was used to line a gravity thickener tank floor at Exxaro’s Grootegeluk mine in Lephalale, South Africa.
The gravity thickeners at Exxaro’s Grootegeluk mine in Lephalale play a pivotal role in the recycling of water used for settlement of fines generated through fragmentation (blasting from mining) and degradation (handling processes in pit and plant; loading of trucks, bunkers, silos, chutes, transfer points). As part of Exxaro’s maintenance programme it was deemed necessary to remediate each of these tanks so as to extend their operational life and ensure efficient functioning.
The installation had just 7 days to complete the works. Find out if they were successful, and read the case study in full here.
