Mechanically enhanced evaporation solutions
Ecomister’s Turbo-mister enhanced evaporation systems are the alternative to expensive wastewater treatments.
These systems reduce or eradicate the necessity for large tailings pond footprints, while the simple operational design lowers power consumption costs.
The Turbo-mister is easily installed and requires minimal maintenance and / or field servicing. It is scalable, transportable and requires a short lead time for start-ups. Furthermore, the Turbo-mister evaporator line is the most cost-effective and environmentally responsible method of treating wastewater.
Turnkey solutions using mechanical vaporising systems
The Turbo-mister, ‘nature’s environmental solution’, has been embraced by the power technology, oil and gas, mining, construction and agriculture sectors, as well as the food and beverage processing, power generation and solid waste and water processing industries.
The Turbo-mister is the only mechanical evaporator specifically designed and engineered for continuous use, and will reduce the tailing pond water level naturally and economically.
Features and benefits of the Turbo-mister include:
- Lower initial and whole-life cost
- Lower power consumption cost
- Easy installation
- Acceptable environmental impact
- Short-term and reduced liability
- Limited maintenance and no field service
- High volume capabilities
- Remote monitoring and control
- Increased reliability and runtime
- Simplistic design
- Continuous runtime
- Little to no repair downtime
- Low repair cost, if required
- Virtually no environmental leakage
- High likelihood of system expansion
- Customised design
- Flexible design for additional features
Pre-packaged evaporation units
Turbo-mister units, including land, wheeled or float models, are delivered to the job site pre-assembled. A generic installation and manual guide is supplied for the basic step-by-step pumping system setup and operational start up.
Single land units usually take one to two hours to setup, but multiple evaporator installations depend on the site location.
The evaporation units are suitable for extended run-life applications and a containment pond is required. Units are powered either by three-phase, mechanical or power generation systems.
Ecomister’s Turbo-mister requires very little site preparation and has optional angled bases for uneven ground or flat bases for well-prepared surfaces.
Evaporation units for harsh environments
The Turbo-mister has been built with the highest quality components and materials. Its resilient coatings will tolerate the harshest industrial condition.
It has been tried and tested against process tailings effluents that are generated in a mine processing plant. The self-cleaning filter system, specialised nozzle configuration and openings tolerate extremely high TDS water, with more than 200,000ppm.
The Turbo-mister requires limited maintenance and is engineered and developed to run continuously 24/7, 365 days a year.
Cost-effective wastewater treatments
Compared to alternative solutions, the initial capital and whole life costs associated with the Turbo-mister are more affordable.
Units can be operated either manually or remotely and are easy to install and operate. The average cost of eliminating wastewater using Ecomister’s system is two-tenths of $0.01/gal. This includes maintenance, operations and amortisation of the capital cost.
Any desired volume can be managed by using multiple numbers of units. The existing site climatic conditions or pan evaporation rates are used to calculate the efficiency of each unit required to reach zero discharge.
Customised motors and evaporation units
Turbo-mister systems are available in all worldwide voltages and amperages, while Ecomister’s high-efficiency motors are customised to meet industrial motor specifications. These motors thrive in wet, hostile and / or corrosive environments.
The company’s evaporation units are designed to handle a PH range of two to 11 without any special upgrades.
A quick detached cam-lock system allows the user to replace the stainless steel nozzle ring assembly swiftly and conveniently, if scaling growth is present.
The user can release two cams and detach the scaled ring in order to replace it with a spare descaled nozzle ring. The units can cope with extremely high TDS and high-salinity solutions.
Turbo-mister sizes and model specifications
Ecomister’s Turbo-mister is available in three sizes: 19in, 24in and 30in models. These deliver a specific spray pattern of water volume and pressure.
The model number indicates the size, the base option (land, wheeled or float) and whether it is scotch coated and / or the pumping system is included.
The Tri-Pac includes one pumping system and three evaporation units.
Evaporation design and customised product options
Ecomister Evaporator provides evaporation design expertise and customised product fabrication options, and is an accomplished solutions provider.
Pending wastewater volume and containment area limitation, consultation is a necessity in selecting the appropriate product to minimise spray drift and / or maximise water removal.
Computerised remote-control automation systems, weather stations and drift control equipment are available upon request.
Prior to shipping, Ecomister’s complete package is pre-assembled and third-party tested.
Wastewater treatment company Slimline Manufacturing is to attend WasteExpo 2015 in Las Vegas, US.
Slimline Manufacturing Ltd will be exhibiting at this year's Global Petroleum Show.
