Clearflow Aggregate Wash Plant

Clearflow designed and constructed an in situ mixing grid and pond settling system to treat 15,000 litres per minute of aggregate wash water. This incorporated Clearflow‘s Water Lynx blocks to flocculate (clump together) the suspended solids and remove particles less than 10 microns.

Water Lynx offered a non-toxic, passive flocculation through a slow release media of the blocks, not only was this an extremely effective in meeting the discharge parameters but also very cost effective as the passive nature meant that no additional energy was required on site and the slow release blocks only needed replacing monthly.

Key Stats

  • Zero energy requirements
  • Reduced turbidity and heavy metal values
  • Compliant discharge release even during rain events
