Water Optimization

How Mega can Help you Optimize your
Water Applications

Over-watering of haul roads has been the subject of increased study by mine planning and safety personnel. Many mines have improved their efficiency, lowered resource and equipment maintenance costs, and improved the safety of their working conditions by employing water conservation practices.
Safety: Excessive watering of roadways decreases effective tire traction, increases braking distances, destabilizes fill slopes, and accelerates erosion.  This places haulage truck operators at a higher risk of accidents. 


Water Waste: Water conservation is extremely important, particularly in drier climates where water is already a scarce and precious resource. Many governments have implemented strict regulations concerning water usage, and require mines to develop and adhere to a water conservation plan. 


Labor and Resources: Over-watered, eroding haul roads must be serviced and repaired more frequently. When using too much water, trucks are required to return to water fill stations more often. This wastes both fuel and man-hours as well as subjecting the over-watered roads to heavier traffic.


Tire Wear: Well-maintained haul roads will have a compacted top layer of fine-cushioning particles protecting tires from the larger coarse, sharp rocks below. Over-watering erodes this protective top layer, subjecting tires to severe wear by the exposed coarse rocks. This is costly in terms of tire replacement, lower production rates and higher labor hours.
