- Manifolded Frac tanks are set in a line and positioned near the EC unit. When the Flowback begins the returned Frac Fluids are used to fill up all of our source tanks.
- A pump is set near the Ec unit pumping the returned Frac Fluids through the EC for treatment and into a 500 bbl Weir tank. The precipitated solids begin to drop and form our sludge.
- We move the fluids from the Weir tank to a 500 bbl Frac tank known as the "Settling Tank". All loose or staggling flock drop at this time.
- From the "settling Tank" , the water is pumped through a sand filter or media filter to polish or buff the final discharge product.
- The water is now ready to be directed to the appropriate R.O unit. This is determined by the TDS levels present in the water. The "Brackish" R.O is used to process lower TDS levels, and the "Desal" R.0 is used to process higher TDS leveled water.
- Samples are taken following R.O treatment to determine if water is returned to the drilling operator for reuse, or into "Reject" tank to try and be recovered.
