The Mining Industry

Any obstruction in a pipeline effects flow... this is a problem!

The mining industry has continuous problems with the removal of tailings from the mine base. The vehicle for removing the tailings is usually liquid, water. Getting water for potable use or otherwise is via pipelines, or it must be transported. Most mine sites are remote, and water not always conveniently accessible and must be pumped, via pipelines. When the flow in these pipelines slows it is usually crucial to operations! A risk to business!

If the internal bore is reduced in size, either by heavy solids or slurry and slime that have started to adhere to the internal bore, then they must be removed. Restricted flow: slows efficiency, slows production, slows pumps!  If efficiency is compromised, it increases maintenance and it increases costs. The pipelines must be cleaned.

Clearflow uses specifically designed high-tech pigs, along with precise methodology procedures, to remove these inefficiencies.

Clearflow will successfully clean these pipelines, restore flow rates, improve pump cycles, reduce operational and business risks and help meet relating schedules.
