FAQs

Q: Do you have tailings dams or settlement ponds?

Chatoyer Solution

Chatoyer manufactures products that improve settlement and assist with managing dewatering during maximum capacities.

Cateogory : Silt and Sediment Control

silt curtains for mining installed in sediment pond on mine site

Product :
Application :
Silt Curtain
Silt curtains for mining are strategically installed in waterways to control sediment and assist in the settling of solids (silt) suspended in water. The flotation of the silt curtain can also function as an oil containment boom for fuel spills on water.

Product :
Application :
Dewatering Bag
Dewatering bags are an economical way to filter slurry and sediment laden water. Flocculants can be added to aid in binding and trapping particles.
installation of floating baffles into a waste water treatment settling basin
Product :
Application :
Floating Baffles 

Redirect flows around the baffles which act like walls in the water. The water is forced to follow the path dictated by the installed baffle curtains in a snake like flow rather than flowing in a more direct path form inlet to outlet. This improves hydraulic retention time (HRT).

Q: Do you conduct earth moving or excavation operations?

Chatoyer Solution

During these operations there is a potential risk for silt and sediment to migrate to environmentally sensitive areas or run off into the stormwater drain.
