How is Scale Busta used in underground mines?

Scale Busta – the Aussie-built scale buster was specifically designed to treat the extreme mineral concentrations that can be found in underground mines. The unit was tailor made to fit the 6 inch pipeline used in underground mining thus eliminating the need for extensions, and it is the same length as one section of pipe (6.5 m).

The Scale Busta unit only adds about 40 kg to the pipe section weight and is only 350 mm in diameter. The weight is an important feature of Scale Busta – the Aussie-built scale buster, as the pipes are usually hung in groups from the roof of mine roads by chains.

Here are some of the Scale Busta applications for underground mines:

  • On the out flush lines
  • On the incoming lines
  • On clean water lines
  • On dam water lines
  • On feed cooling water to equipment
  • On water coolers
  • On Heat exchangers
  • On old pipes metal or poly pipes
  • On new installations to prevent scale build up starting
