Folded Flow® Dissolved Air Flotation Separator Folded Flow® Dissolved Air Flotation Separator

The Folded Flow® DAF system’s simple and innovative design “folds” the flow by removing effluent from the same end of the tank as the influent is introduced, resulting in a higher hydraulic loading rate.

Hydrocell® Hydraulic Induced Air Flotation Separator Hydrocell® Hydraulic Induced Air Flotation Separator

Hydrocell™ hydraulic induced air flotation separators remove oil and suspended solids from water in large volumes, and can process solids and oils from 50 ppm to several hundred ppm with product effluents containing less than 5 ppm.

PACT® Biological Treatment Systems PACT® Biological Treatment Systems

The PACT system combines biological treatment and carbon adsorption into a single, synergistic treatment step, resulting in significant cost savings and performance advantages over other systems.

EcoRight™ Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) System EcoRight™ Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) System

The EcoRight™ biological treatment system is a next generation carbon-assisted biological treatment system incorporating the use of granular activated carbon (GAC) in the aeration tank(s). GAC is retained in the aeration tanks via screening, isolating the GAC from the membrane filtration section of the biological treatment plant. By retaining the activated carbon in the aeration section, carbon consumption costs are minimized through biological regeneration of the GAC. Effluent quality is significantly improved with the use of activated carbon. In many cases, the EcoRight system effluent can be fed directly to a water reuse technology such as an RO system or multi-effect evaporator.

APPLICATIONS

Produced Water Treatment From Siemens Produced Water Treatment From Siemens

Produced water is generated in the process of lifting oil and gas from water-bearing formations–typically sea or lake beds. As oil and gas is lifted to the surface, water is brought along with it. This water must be treated prior to discharge or re-injection.

Water Treatment for Injection/Re-injection Water Treatment for Injection/Re-injection

Meeting water quality specifications for injection or reinjection is essential for protecting the permeability of a reservoir.

Process and Wastewater Treatment Process and Wastewater Treatment

The treatment of process water can have a substantial and serious impact on a facility’s bottom line results in the short term as well as over the life of the equipment.

Ethylene and Refinery Spent Caustic Ethylene and Refinery Spent Caustic

In the last 10 years, we have successfully installed over two dozen spent caustic wet oxidation systems, with capacities varying from 0.5 to 18.5 m3/h (2 to 81 gpm). Our systems are the industry standard and are included in many of the new world-scale ethylene plants.
