INDUSTRIAL WATER AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Can Co-Locating Utilities Solve The Water-Energy Nexus?

Resources being a scarce commodity, it’s incumbent upon us to optimize the use of water and energy as best we can. While conservation is the prime course of action for the public, the best solution for utilities may be to work smarter — by having the water-energy nexus work for us instead of against us.

WATER AND WASTEWATER SOLUTIONS FOR THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

  • Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries
    Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries

    A single operational oil and gas refinery produces millions of gallons of contaminated wastewater a year, leading to environmental pollution concerns. Ion exchange resins are a metal- and ion-removal solution to help clean this wastewater for plant reuse or safe disposal. This application guide explains how resins can be used to demineralize refinery water in process, boiler, and cooling water applications.

    New Technologies Set To 'Disrupt' The Industry

    For the unfamiliar, the term “disruptive technology” initially sounds quite bad, as though it describes something that gets in the way. Far from impeding progress, however, disruptive technologies actually accelerate progress exponentially by disrupting the status quo. Think personal computers vs. mainframes, or cell phones vs. land lines.

    10 Produced Water Treatment Technologies: Evaluating The Pros And Cons

    As the oil industry grows, so does the amount of produced water that must be treated. A variety of technologies are available for produced water treatment. Water Online shares a side-by-side comparison. 

  • Capacitance Level Switches Provide Reliable Water/Oil Interface Detection
    Capacitance Level Switches Provide Reliable Water/Oil Interface Detection

    There are a number of point level approaches to measuring the interface between water and oil for water dump control in the oil and gas industry. However, each has disadvantages — manual methods introduce human error, conductivity switches are rendered inaccurate by buildup, and float switches are susceptible to wear and tear. This white paper introduces capacitance level switches as an accurate and reliable alternative for water/oil interface detection.

KLa Systems Jet Aerator

KLa Systems Jet Aerator

Jet Aerators transfer oxygen by simultaneously introducing large volumes of high kinetic energy liquid and air through a series of jet nozzles.  The high velocity liquid exits the inner, primary jet and rapidly mixes with the incoming air in the outer jet.  This intense mixing and high degree of turbulence in the gas/liquid cloud, travels outward from the jet along the basin floor prior to the vertical rise of the gas bubble column to the liquid surface.
