Brine water recycler test 'meeting expections'
Preliminary test results of water processed by the first commercially installed Sionix Elixir 225-P/RO Unit show the unit is meeting performance expectations, Sionix Corp announced on 17 September 2009.The unit, which was designed to recycle brine water created during the production of natural gas, is fully installed and has successfully recycled water during test periods.
Sionix and its distributor Innovated Water Equipment Inc (IWE), based in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA, are testing IWE's first commercially installed Elixir 225-P/RO Unit, at a natural gas drilling site. The unit is designed to process and clean approximately 6,000 barrels per day (252,000 gallons, 950 m²).
"Based on preliminary data and test results, we are pleased with the unit's performance and are confident that the unit will meet designed volume output specifications," said Rod Anderson, CEO of Sionix.
The wastewater treatment system is designed to enable drilling companies to recycle wastewater on-site and reuse it for hydrofraction, reducing costs, while helping to make themselves more eco-friendly. Sionix expects to complete the full testing phase of the Elixir 225-P/RO unit in the next 30-60 days, and will release further testing results as they become available.
