Achieve environmental compliance and control costs with automated water treatment systems fitted to your mining operation

Kontek's technology consistently produce compliant water because our engineers have the knowledge and experience to build systems that fit your environment and application.  This applications are used to treat waste streams with high content of  heavy metals from  mining processes and tailing ponds, as well to purify water for boilers,  cooling water, chemical make up for labs and portable water.


Lower treatment costs and maximize production capacity with Kontek's leachate treatment

Avoid tailing pond overflow and meet environmental discharge limits 24/7. We have the expertise needed to design, build and commission an automated treatment process that will consistently work for your unique leachate challenges . Our membrane technology is superior for keeping the performance of the process up, at the required flow rates to avoid  the ponds from overflowing.

Want to manage your leachate?

We drive  down costs by using the most cost-effective and crudest technologies available, including cyclone separators and settling clarifies. This step  removes most of the easy bulk and silt from your tailing pond.

At this stage, the contaminants are smaller and require a more refined filtration process, such as MemKon microfiltration. This step removes all remaining suspended solids.

We use RoKon reverse osmosis membranes to eliminare dissolved salts in the water.

This step allows you to consistently meet extremely low environmental discharge limits of toxic adjunct elements such as: cinnabar and mercury, at the same time treat residuos including cyanide  and selenium. We target and remove specifics contaminants with a ReKon ion exchange treatment.

In certain nuclear leachate applications, we use zeolites, electrically charged aluminum silica cellular structures.
