Containerized Carbon Filtration System 520 GPM - USA

Product Description

Application: Gold Mine

This is model ACF48-A from our MF-1000 Series.

The system works by forcing water through a media (this can be sand, gravel, carbon shavings, or even specialty media like anthracite or calcite), the particle contaminants become attracted to the media and literally stick to it, leaving purified water free to flow out of the system. Activated carbon specifically designed for removing unwanted color, taste, or odor from water. It is also good at removing chlorine from disinfected water, making it very popular in drinking water applications. After the media has accumulated enough contaminants, the tank must go through a backwash cycle, where water is pushed backwards through the media, loosening it up and enabling it to continue operating normally and efficiently. Eventually, backwash will no longer be effective and the media will need to be replaced.


Water Challenges: Gold mines are generally faced with issues of water pollution with mostly groundwater and surface water sources contaminated, reducing the supply of drinking water. Mining operations quickens this depletion, and increases the severity of extracting groundwater from the local habitat near mine sites. Scaling of the minerals will hamper construction and maintenance efforts, reducing equipment performance. Without the incorporation of control and prevention measures, water pollution will further exacerbate with minerals and sediments from the ground eventually infiltrating rivers, streams, and lakes. To avoid this occurrence, gold mining sites are utilizing water treatment solutions such as carbon filtration systems that will filtering out unwanted minerals, particles, and sediments from the feed water. Activated carbon will also aid in the conservation of water within mine sites by reducing the amount of water waste.



Applied Solution:A containerized carbon filtration system was designed for a mine in the northern United States. The system was designed with five industrial carbon filtration tanks inside a heated storage container. The unit was designed to produce 520 GPM of high-quality purified product. The tanks were selected from our MF-1000 series. From its initial start-up, the machine has been functioning properly with minimal trouble-shooting.
