E3 Solutions' Rotary Atomizer vs Competitive Pressure Nozzles

 

The enhanced evaporation technology market is still advancing and there are different systems being developed and refined. When examining natural evaporation, there are many factors, such as water temperature, wind, humidity, water vapor pressure, dew point, outside temperature, and many more. There are also many factors to consider when choosing to introduce enhanced evaporation into your process. This blog post will clarify some main differences between E3 Solutions Varimax® mechanical rotary atomization versus pressurized spiral and pressurized hollow nozzles ie, snow cannons.

Varimax-40 Enhanced Evaporator vs Trucking & Injection Cost

Varimax-40 Enhanced Evaporator vs Trucking & Injection Cost

E3 Solutions will use the following comparative example of current disposal methods used in drilling operations with the main focus of using E3’s Varimax-40 enhanced evaporation system versus trucking and injection: "The costs for hauling away wastewater for deep-well injection ranges between $0.07 and $0.17 per gallon. For a newly fracked well, the cost could reach $100,000 for transporting over 588,000 gallons of flowback – water levels produced from each basin, and indeed, each wellhead can vary. Plus, an additional potential 142,800 gallons each day of transported produced wastewater, at $20,000 per day. To haul water off-site for disposal over the 20-year life of a hydraulic fracturing well-project, it was estimated to cost $160 million (includes trucking costs, water disposal costs and labor)."-Source Energy Central website article.

Salt Drift: Surprisingly Short Hang Times

Salt Drift: Surprisingly Short Hang Times

One of the biggest questions I always get asked from potential clients wanting to incorporate enhanced evaporation equipment, is the containment of salt drift from high TDS waste streams. As technology improves and more studies evolve, one thing is for sure, salt is always in the atmosphere, mostly from the salt loading from the ocean due to natures design. Surprisingly, models and observations have proved tiny micron particles return to the sea in a short time frame.
