Frack Water Cleanup
When applied to the oil and gas industry, OriginOil’s Electro Water Separation (EWS) system is used continuously to remove oils, suspended solids, insoluble organics and bacteria from produced or ‘frack flowback’ water. Testing has shown that OriginOil’s EWS system reduces total organics as measured by Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) by over 98% in the matter of minutes.
OriginOil’s EWS for frack water cleanup consists of three integrated modules:
- Single Step Extraction™ (SSE) tubular reactors, designed to break the emulsion and extract solids from the water phase.
- OriginOil’s proprietary gas flotation concentrator specifically designed for hydrocarbon separation.
- A sludge hopper with pump and a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system.
- (Optional) additional effluent treatments to improve clarity.
OriginOil’s EWS can be used as a standalone system for the separation of organics from produced or frack flowback water, enabling clients to reuse their process water for further fracturing or drilling fluids operations. Reusing the water significantly reduces trucking and disposal costs.
Coupled with equipment from OriginOil process partners, EWS can be the first stage of a multi-stage system to achieve Class B or releasable (ground) water.
Frack Water Cleanup Models
Now shipping, CLEAN-FRAC Model 60K is designed to process produced or frack flowback water at a continuous flow rate of 1 barrel per minute or 60,000 gallons/day in continuous operation.
The Model 60K is designed to be mounted in a container, on a trailer or as a fixed configuration (product page).
A Model 14K is a test or research system which can handle up to 1 gallon, or 1,440 gallons/day, and is mounted on a stainless steel table, for ease of operation.
