Chatsworth, CA (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Cavitation Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: CVAT) (BERLIN: WTC) announced that the Company has developed a chemical free produced water treatment three step patented process.
High-throughput cavitation and electrocoagulation apparatus, Patent #: 8673129. Variable flow-through cavitation device, Patent #: 10507442.
Produced water in oil and gas industry is viewed as a heterogeneous mixture of dissolved solids, salinity, suspended solids, iron sulfide, and grease, which frequently requires the use of dangerous chemicals to precipitate dissolved contaminants. The Company has developed chemical free technologies and processes that treat produced water in oil and gas industry, while focusing on mitigating the environmental impact and reducing operating expenses for the end user.
Chemical Free – Three Step Water Treatment Process
- STEP 1. Cavitation/Advanced Oxidation – The shockwave released by many bubbles continuously collapsing. These forces can cause multiple chemical reactions, one of which is the dissociation of water into hydrogen and hydroxyl radicals. Hydroxyl radicals are powerful oxidizers and can be used to destroy organic constituents such as hydrocarbons. During supercritical cavitation in the water organic phases become completely soluble; oxygen is completely soluble and behaves as a strong oxidizer; and inorganic constituents become largely insoluble.
- STEP 2. Water Electrolysis Technology – Electrooxidation (EOx) Disinfection of water by direct electrolysis is a kind of oxidative treatment of water where oxidizers are made from the water itself and are not introduced from the outside. The effectiveness of water disinfection by direct electrolysis is several times higher compared to chemical methods.
- STEP 3. Electrocoagulation – High pollutant removal yield from treated waters achieved by using electrocoagulation method without adding any chemical coagulant or flocculants, thus reducing the amount of sludge. The most common inorganic water pollutants are heavy metals, nitrates, sulfates, phosphates, fluorides and chlorides.
Cavitation Technologies’ three steps process is a new and unique Chemical Free environmentally safe process.
