  • Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation
    Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.

Improved process control (especially pH control), reduced gypsum deposits on system components, and drier sludge of a lesser volume are the results of this innovative application.

INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS

CoStrip™: CoStrip™:

Veolia’s patent-pending CoStrip degases raw water by introducing microbubbles of a stripping gas (air, nitrogen or fuel gas) counter-current to the liquid stream. First, the microbubbles are introduced into a series of chambers utilizing eductors. Next, they rise and capture dissolved gases due to the disequilibrium between the microbubble gases and the dissolved gases in the water.

  • SEPAREL® PF Series
    SEPAREL® PF Series

    The SEPAREL PF series removes dissolved gases in water through a tube-shaped gas permeable membrane composed of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Gasses dissolved in water flow through the tube and are removed due to the pressure difference of the gases inside and outside of the tube, thus creating a vacuum outside of the tube. This video explains how the PF series works.

  • SEPAREL® EF Series
    SEPAREL® EF Series

    The SEPAREL EF series uses external flow which allows water to randomly flow over the hollow fibers and, in turn, contact dissolved gases more frequently. Therefore, desgassing performance with the EF series is higher than the PF series which utilizes internal flow. Also, a lower pressure drop means that larger modules can be used. This video explains how the EF series works.

    Why Strategic Choices — And Water — Could Make People More Energy-Efficient

    At my household, a new year means a new energy and water-use baseline.
