KLEERFLO SELF-CLEANING FILTER CASE STUDY: MINING 
 
Industry: Mining
Region: Namakwa Sands – West Coast of South Africa, north of Cape Town
Product: Kleerflo Self-Cleaning Filter
 
Challenge
• Sea water is used in various applications as there is no fresh water available on site
• The sea water contains zebra mussels which cluster in mats on top of each other, lining the inside of pipes, which
constricts water flow
• To control the build-up of mussels, chlorine is injected into the pipeline which delivers sea water to the mine
processing plants, which brings an unwelcome consequence of mussels dislodging from the pipe and discharging
at the end of it
 
Application
Removal of debris from water to protect various types of equipment and systems
 
Solution
• Kleerflo Self-Cleaning Filters have been installed at different locations throughout the various mine-processingplants to protect: glands on slurry pumps; spray nozzles; spiral separators; WHIMS (Wet High Intensity Magnetic
Separation) wash water; and wash down water systems
• Kleerflo, a fully automatic backwashing filter/strainer, designed to remove suspended solids from water, uses
a unique backwards and forwards shuttle movement to effect backwashing. This keeps the filters clean and
effective without the need for manual intervention
 
Results
• Simple and low maintenance
• Increased recovery efficiencies
• No manual backwashing
• Minimal wear as Kleerflo has no spinning or rotating parts
• Peace of mind
