Discharge and re-injection of produced water from oil/gas production is becoming increasingly challenging for the oil producers as the world’s oil wells mature and the water cut increases.
With LiqTech’s revolutionary SiC-based ceramic membrane technology it has never been easier to meet these tightening standards and requirements for produced water and flow back water (fracking).
One-Step Filtration with LiqTech's SiC membranes
Due to the unique hydrophilic properties of Silicon Carbide, it is possible to obtain higher water fluxes on LiqTech’s SiC-based ceramic membranes than any other membrane material.
Continuous process flux for oil/water separation is recorded between 200 – 2000 L/(m²h)! – depending on the oil type. Removal of oil and TSS to below 1 ppm is possible at very high flux rates.
This means that our filtration solution has become a viable alternative to hydrocyclones, induced gas flotations units, micro-flotation, and walnut shell filters.
LiqTech’s filtration solution replaces before mentioned conventional solutions with a one-step-filtration system based on LiqTech’s SiC membranes. We can meet discharge levels for oil content, where conventional technologies cannot.
LiqTech offers a market proven water treatment system for produced water and flow back water (fracking) both onshore and offshore.
