The goal with any tailings management plan should be to reclaim as much water as possible for reuse and to get the solid fractions into a state that can be safely and easily stored and handled. McLanahan provides a wide range of tailings management solutions to help producers achieve these goals, as well as meet environmental regulations. The company’s tailings management solutions can offer producers a way to separate the solids from the liquids, resulting in a dry, drip-free, easy-to-handle solid product that can be sold, as well as clean process water that can be reintroduced into the production process. By implementing one or more of McLanahan’s tailings management solutions, producers can significantly reduce or potentially eliminate their settling ponds and the hazards and maintenance associated with them.
Thickeners allow producers to recover and immediately reuse their process water. They are beneficial to producers in a variety of industries, as well as for sites where a lack or cost of water is a concern. Thickeners can drastically reduce the size of settling ponds, or when paired with a dewatering device, eliminate them all together.
Filter Presses can be used in many industries to dewater slurry, producing a drip-free, dry cake and immediately reusable process water. These machines are ideal for producers who want to completely eliminate their settling ponds.
McLanahan also provides several additional tailings management solutions to help separate solids from liquids, allowing producers to recover both fines and process water to potentially increase their profits and meet environmental regulations.
