With a 60° conical spray pattern offering double washing action this unit is designed to operate with recycled water.
At a time when the Zero-Water Usage principle is becoming more and more prominent, consider the innovative new Power Nozzle – the locally manufactured washing nozzle, which allows for the use of recycled or grey water.
Mines are especially focused on recycling their water, aiming for the point where production doesn’t require any potable water – and only recycled (rain, sewerage, run-off and excess underground) water is used. According to Craig Sheridan, Associate Professor at the School of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand, “Waterless mining is where water is consistently recycled and reused in a closed circuit – (this) is the end goal of being water efficient,”. (Closing the Loop by Toni Miur; Mining Decisions issue #2 – February 2018.) Recycled water usage, however means that the water is likely to contain sometimes large particles of solids. Enter the solution: the Power Nozzle, which works in such a way that water can be circulated and reused, even if it contains solid debris.
Traditional spade nozzles block easily and in almost all cases a shutdown of the immediate process area is needed to clean these. This means that the use of recycled water on the plant will result in many hours of downtime and reduced productivity. The Power Nozzle however, is completely self-flushing, ensuring a constant spray of wash water on the product. And because the Power Nozzle can be remotely cleaned, use of this innovative equipment eliminates the hours of downtime for cleaning, thereby optimizing productivity and benefiting the bottom line of any mine or plant.
