Water under pressure has two faces in the mining industry; the purposeful use of pressurised water and the inherent dangers to a water management system that excessive water pressure can present.
High-pressure water in mining is often used to mine, move and separate materials or to suppress dust or for washing purposes. In these uses, the cost of interpreted supply or inadequate pressure can be significant. Efficient and reliable pressurised water systems are mission critical.
Conversely, excessive water pressure can lead to water main breaks and cause leaks in civil and mining water systems.
Management of water pressure levels in the supply system ensures more consistent pressure levels which can mitigate the risks of water main breaks as well as improving the reliability of the water supply system and help conserve water.
