Amazing Cost Savings
The EcoMister offers a significant cost advantage for your mine water disposal. By enhancing the natural evaporation process, the EcoMister allows you to evaporate waste water in multiple industries such as Solid waste, Mining, oil and gas , textiles, chemical processing, food and beverage processing and power generation. On average, our customers spend $0.0010 per US Gallon on disposal with no additional trucking costs.
EVAPORATION EXAMPLE - MINING :
Single S30LP operation for 7 months in Nevada in the area around Beowawe U of N ranch :
With an average pan evaporation rate of 46%
- Daily disposal rate for period was 46,041 US gallons
- Average monthly disposal for this period was 1,431,419 US gallons
- Total volume disposed in the 7 month period was 10,019,934 US gallons
Disposal cost based on power consumed
- Total power consumed during operation was 32 KW/hour
- Power Cost of 6 cents per Kilowatt
- Our cost of disposing 10,019,934 US gallons of water over a period of 7 months was 0.0010 cents per gallon
PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
A Natural Solution
Through extensive research and testing, we've developed a standardized process that allows you to safely and consistently separate waste solids without the use of chemicals, filter media or the burning of petroleum products. Our system uses natural evaporation to eliminate trucking costs, improve compaction, increase root growth and dust control, significantly reducing your carbon footprint while reducing cost.
Engineering at its Best
Harnessing the natural process of evaporation is the future of waste water disposal. Engine powered or electrical, the EcoMister Evaporator series from Slimline uses their patented Turbine technology to loft waste water high into the air, creating sustained ‘hang time,’ and allowing nature to evaporate the water, while the solids are returned to the pond. The solids can be captured, while waste water vaporizes. This process removes the need and associated costs of trucking and fuel, while reducing dust and enhancing root growth at the site. The environmental benefits are meaningful, as are the cost savings. The following diagram illustrates the EcoMister enhanced evaporation process, whereby nature becomes in effect free labor, replacing the need for trucks, drivers and fuel.
