Water and waste treatment system for mine comes in a boxTundra Mine, Nunavut, March 2017
The new Tundra mine received a complete portable, potable water treatment system and a washdown water recycling system “in a box”. The versatile water treatment skid is a UV unit/cartridge filters/sodium hypochlorite injection in a box just 40″x30″x32″high that treats flows of 5gpm for up to 100 mine staff. The system runs automatically or manually from the included control panel. The skid is sized to throw in the back of a pickup truck or fit into an existing building.
The washdown water skid consists of pumps, bag filter and carbon filter vessel with backwash hookup for water hose. It is capable of filtering 20USGPM washwater and the filtrate can be used again for washdowns. It is a little larger than the water system – a 7.3′ tall x 4’long by 5.8′ wide “box” – but still manageable from the back of a pickup truck, and portable. The systems are designed to be easy to use and maintain.

Pumping water up the Vernon HillVernon, BC, June 2017
City water will be piped to the first of two pumphouses at lower elevation then delivered to 622 meters to a new subdivision in Vernon with incredible views. BI Pure assisted KWL in the design of Grundfos pumps at 107 USGPM to deliver the water; in the second pumphouse the chlorine content is assessed and boosted as needed by a BI Pure Water chlorinator, before distribution to homes. Care is taken to preserve the quality of Vernon city water. BI Pure Water delayed the delivery of the pumphouses until late June as the municipality is managing extreme spring flooding issues.
