SURFace discharge

The Trinity System

We have combined the world's most advanced zero liquid discharge technology with the "Best in Class" ultra-filtration ceramic membranes and now a powerful oxidation technology. The combination of these three proprietary and patented technologies creates an unparalleled system design to  ECONOMICALLY treat "high TDS-Salinity" produced water to surface discharge and reuse quality requirements. For  desalinating "Low TDS" produced water we utilize the best in class EDR (Electrochemical Desalination) NEXED technology by Evoqua.

Oxidation and Filtration

Pretreatment, pretreatment, pretreatment.  It is crucial to any produced water treatment process to maximize economics and produce a superior filtrate-brine.  

OXIDATION

Our hyper oxidation technology produces multi-oxidants directly in the effluent for disinfection. The technology is based on an electro-oxidation process in which oxidation reactions occur by applying an electric field between non-sacrificial electrodes, generating multiple oxidants directly in the effluent for oxidation of organic and inorganic contaminants. Unlike electrocoagulation, it uses only electricity to create the chemistry inside the treatment reactor.  

FILTRATION

The CEMBRANE ceramic silicon carbide flat sheet membrane assures us of this quality of filtrate-brine to feed our AquaFortus extraction process.  CEMBRANE is our "WORKHORSE".  It is durable, non-corrosive, easy to maintain and operates with a maximum flowrate and minimal power.  This is crucial in the oil and gas industry.  The modular design also allows for ultimate flexibility and sizing. 

The Extractor

AquafortusNTR zero liquid discharge technology is a novel liquid-to-liquid crystallizer that promotes the formation of salt crystals via a proprietary direct contact crystallization process using Aquafortus’ patented materials, the AQF Absorbent and the AQF Regenerant.


AquaFortusNTR works by a two-stage solvent exchange process with the AQF Absorbent acting as a transfer medium for water. When a produced water filtrate-brine contacts the AQF Absorbent, salts from the filtrate-brine instantly crystallize.   The AQF Regenerant regenerates the AQF Absorbent for continuous reuse in the

system. In the treatment train, AquaFortusNTR will replace both the power hungry thermal evaporator and

crystallizer.
