Solvent Recovery and Separation

Solvent-Recovery-and-SeparationOil sands processing in Northern Canada utilizes a variety of solvents and naphtha to assist in the separation of the Bitumen from the water and sand. These fluids can help promote chemical reactions, accelerate processing time, and reduce processing costs. Many of these
must recovered due to their high costs, importance of water recovery, or issues associated with release of the chemicals to the environment.

Sludge Heating

Sludge-HeatingInline process heating with Direct Steam Injection has multiple applications in a variety of process and utility applications. Many applications such as mineral processing, pulp and fiber slurry pre-treatment, oil sands mining and others are not well suited for traditional methods of heating. Typical challenges encountered are corrosive fluids, abrasive particulate, viscosity changes, plugging and fouling, eating for water, slurry, sludge, and aggressive fluid heating applications. Direct Steam Injection for Inline Heating is a very good choice for a variety of applications. One of the fundamental principals for efficient and reliable steam injection is the ability to produce and deliver high velocity steam. High velocity steam is what assures rapid and complete condensation and mixing of the steam in the fluid.

Anaerobic Digestion

Biogas-ProductionMore and more agricultural and dairy farms as well as beef, hog and poultry operations are considering the use of anaerobic digestion for biogas production. These operations typically produce a significant amount of organic matter in the form of manure. Anaerobic digestion is a biological process that breaks down organic solids. Manure can be processed in anaerobic digesters and the byproduct is methane gas. The methane gas can be captured, stored and used to run electrical generators and boilers for use in the farm operations. Heat exchangers can face the following challenges when heating sludge:
