Mine Tailings

Mine Tailings & Soil Gas Venting

Mine tailings are the waste products of a mining operation. Often toxic, the mining industry is compelled to meet certain regulatory conditions to avoid tailings contamination of groundwater.

Industrial Wastewater And Your Outdoor Venting System

How Hydravent Works

The Hydravent Venting System has a demonstrated track record of being more effective than conventional venting solutions. It all starts with our innovative design that allows water to travel across 70% of the internal surface.

The outer surface is covered with thermally-bonded, needle-punctured fabric that is designed to let ground gasses in, while keeping silt and other clogging particles out. All of this culminates in a system that has a zero-percent failure rate when properly installed. You read that correctly—a Hydravent system has never failed when properly installed.

Correcting Venting Problems Withing Compliance Standards

The mining industry is one of the most tightly regulated sectors that exist. A big part of compliance is effective venting and the environmental impact of natural processes like erosion by excess water or other factors. At Intech, we have years of experience in working within the compliance regulations of various industries. We optimized our tools and services to help our customers stay in the lines of those standards and still perform at their best.

Seepage Prevention and Your Synthetic Liners

Aside from transporting ground gasses to where it can be safely vented, mining infrastructure will invariably include a synthetic liner that is designed to prevent seepage of wastewater into groundwater and, eventually, other bodies of water.

Before these liners and seepage prevention were mandated by governments at all levels, poisoned ecosystems and even foods were a common occurrence.

Why is any of this relevant here? Because a crucial element of a compliant mine is a healthy synthetic liner. Once again, Hydravent has the answer. 

Hydravent Venting System

Some notable features of the Hydravent Venting System include:

  • Zero-Percent Failure Rate – This was mentioned earlier, but it demands repeating. When the Hydravent system is properly installed, it has unmatched reliability. In a way, what we’re offering is peace of mind that such a critical system isn’t going to cause a major headache down the line.
  • Higher Inflow Rate – When wastewater can more efficiently flow into the system, it’s less of a concern—it’s as simple as that. Whether water is being introduced as a consequence of mining operations or from natural sources, Hydravent allows your team to get back to work faster.
  • Clog-Resistant Construction – With a needle-punctured fabric exterior, nothing is getting into your venting system except the wastewater itself. This helps prevent the effects of erosion and damage from standing water.
  • Reduced Installation Costs – Hydravent ships easily in standard-length coils of 150 ft. from our network of distributors around the U.S. and the world. Once it arrives, it can be installed right away without having to relieve coil-memory that plagues the installation of traditional perforated pipe systems.
