Mighty Fine: Dow Filter Offers Cost-Saving Solids RemovalSource: Dow Water & Process Solutions
Solids removal from produced water is a major concern for oil and gas producers looking to reduce costs, protect downstream equipment and reduce safety and environmental issues. Old technologies such as settling systems, media filtration, cartridge filters and bag filters do not meet the challenge.
That’s why, in 2010, one large oil and gas exploration company turned to an innovative product designed to optimize performance and reduce cost: the TEQUATIC™ PLUS fine particle filter**. The company, which had been using bag filters in its centralized injection sites for more than 30 years, was planning a major facilities upgrade. Part of that upgrade included a search for a new filtration system that would be self-cleaning, low maintenance and cost-effective – with over 99.5% water recovery.
