Reduce downtime of plant equipment and improve efficiency on site.
Hard water and drilling machines are never a good mix especially when the goal is to remove the largest amount of rock in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of wear and tear on the drilling rig.
Some underground drilling companies use ground water to reduce friction on the drill surface, if you are using ground water then you will experience hard water problems leading to costly downtime of plant and equipment – guaranteed.
Most engineers just get on with the job by factoring in the necessary more frequent changes and repairs due to limescale and iron issues resulting in water box seal changes, flushing head seal changes and corrosion of the machinery’s pipe fittings.
But the most effective solution is dealing with the cause of the problem, hardness in water. This is much easier than it sounds, simply install IGS Water Conditioner directly in the water line, treating hard water problems before it reaches the equipment.
The IGS Water Conditioners have proven to solve hard water problems experienced by mining equipment in underground mines using hyper saline ground water, it is easy to fit and install, maintenance free, reduces down time, increases productivity, increases the life of components, reduces maintenance, spare parts and operating costs, and protects your investment in capital equipment.
