How Hydrosmart Contributes to Miner Health and Safety
Water quality and water system function has a direct link to health and safety. Within the mining industry, workers are faced with substantial health and safety risks every day, and some of the most neglected causes can be from un-treated hard water. Harmful substances can travel through water systems on mining sites, and workers need to avoid contact with contaminants such as ores, acid mine drainage and descalants. As one of the largest industries contributing to the Australian economy, it is vital that water conditioning technology is installed to meet the demand and functionality of mineral harvesting and the safety of the workers.
The Dangers of Current Water Treatment Methods
Whether a large industrial mining complex or a smaller scale mining site, mining is a dangerous activity, and water systems can spread potentially severe health risks. Poor water quality is what leads to pipework and storage tanks to become corroded and blocked. Without proper hard water treatment, infrastructure must be replaced regularly, exposing miners to contaminants. A build-up of harmful toxins like acids, heavy metals, hydroxides, and sulphates is often removed by chlorine, a solution proven to be very unsafe for workers. Although mining provides resources essential for human civilisation and technological advancements, it undoubtedly causes substantial health problems in workers and potentially even surrounding inhabitants in the long term. Hydrosmart resonance frequency technology removes the need for harsh chemical utilisation when removing contaminants from water ways. Reducing exposure is imperative to protecting both miners and the ongoing functionality of mining sites. To this end, Hydrosmart provides unique and modern solutions.
How Hydrosmart Can Protect Your Workers
With proper mining water conditioning technology, workers are exposed to drastically reduced health risks. By replacing harsh chemicals for water treatment and scale removal, with Hydrosmart’s resonance frequencies, minerals interact with the water differently, aiding in the faster dissolving of build-up and preventing the progression of corrosion. Hydrosmart scale removal and hard water treatment removes the need for other solutions that continue to add to the harm of Australian miners.
