Waste Water Treatment


During many different oilfield operations waste water is created. Often, these waste streams contain hydrocarbons and/or heavy metals, free and dissolved. Waste water treatment is necessary  to make industrial wastewater safe for re-use or release into the environment. Oils, greases and heavy metals, as well as gasoline and other petroleum by-products are the most common contaminants. The release of small amounts of oil in waste water can be harmful on the natural environment. Twin Filter provides solutions for waste water treatment, so oil can be captured quickly, with the lowest costs. Twin Filter has more than 25 years of experience in up to 80 countries. We support both upstream and down stream clients but our equipment is also used in several waste water plants (see application Effluent Filtration; Municipal waste water).

Many existing installations and technologies can separate the main bulk from the waste water before dumping or secondary treatment. Twin Filter developed a unique absorption system, which removes, in a compact system cost and very effective, 99,9% of all dissolved, dispersed and emulsified oil from water. Beside the different hydrocarbons the system removes all heavy metals in one pass by absorption till non detectable levels. This technology can even be applied with existing cartridge filter units as used by all main oil service companies.
