The Scout Cleans Your Produced Water For Recycling

The purchase of clean water is a growing concern and expense for well operators in the Permian Basin. As costs of clean water continue to rise, demand also increases, causing major production cost issues.

To help ease the costs of buying and moving clean water, Filtra-Systems engineered, manufactured and introduced the Scout Mobile Water Recycling System to oil field operators and producers.

Scout Mobile Water Recycling System

The SCOUT, an on-demand mobile filtration unit, is designed and engineered to recycle produced water for reinjection. It uses tested and proven filtration and separation technologies for processing up to 10,000 BPD of produced water which can then be easily pumped to your next frac.

The SCOUT has been verified effective, in the Permian, at meeting the most stringent KPI’s for the removal of oil, suspended solids ( < 30 NTU ), Iron (< 5 ppm) and ORP.

Another upside is these units are completely automated and required minimal operator attention. All filtration cycles can be monitored using an easily accessible display screen, which eliminates the need for a dedicated operator.

At the same time, all process data is recorded and tracked remotely. The current flow rate, barrels of water processed per day, and waste generated can all be tracked without entering the field from anywhere with Internet access.

SCOUT rentals are available now. They are trailer mounted for easy transportation to even the most remote locations. Filtra-Systems and our oilfield service partner, Fountain Quail, will analyze your water chemistry and optimize the effectiveness of the mobile water recycling system on site.

Our walnut shell filters are excellent replacement technology for sand filters. Understanding the uses of these filters, and how your company can benefit from this technology, you will be in a perfect position to find a new solution that works for your company.

It seems obvious, the number of problems associated with traditional sand filters, can lead to inefficiency and overall headache within your process.

As an example, when oil or sticky solids (such as metal hydroxides) are introduced into the filter, it will cause portions of the bed to become clogged and very difficult to clean. This results in an extended backwash cycle, increased treatment and disposal costs, and possibly water that does not meet clarity requirements. And, your sand filter bed needs to be replaced every few years to end these concerns.

Respectfully, replacement technology for sand filters provides a solution you can count on for your operation. Walnut shell filters promise to help your company meet its goals by achieving lower backwash volumes and eliminating the cost of replacing the sand filter bed.

Finding the right replacement technology for sand filters can result in numerous benefits to your operation. Walnut shell media has proven to be an effective solution for effective oil-based contaminant removal. These techniques can help improve water quality, cut operating costs, and improve your process.
