The choice of softening technology depends upon water characteristics and desired results. For chemical softening applications, both technologies use TURBOMIX® reactor to optimize efficiency and reduce footprint.
Actiflo® Softening Process
The ACTIFLO® softening technology combines chemical precipitation with recirculated microsand for rapid settling. The microsand acts as a seed for floc formation and allows for designs with very high overflow rates. ACTIFLO® is suitable for treating water with average solids content and is especially efficient for silica removal.
Depending upon your application, ACTIFLO® prefabricated package plants are available up to 5,500 gpm.
Multiflo™ Softening Process
The MULTIFLO™ softening technology incorporates chemical precipitation with sludge thickening, producing a highly concentrated sludge that is easily dewatered. MULTIFLO™ is suitable for treating water with an average to high suspended and precipitated solids content.
Prefabricated package plants up to 1,400 gpm are available, depending on the application.
Turbomix® Draft-tube Reactor
The latest innovation to this proven process is TURBOMIX®, a unique draft-tube reactor. The complete mixing in this reactor reduces the footprint of ACTIFLO® and MULTIFLO™ and enables the addition of water softening chemistry for a variety of applications.
TURBOMIX®ensures optimum utilization of all chemicals, and is designed to optimize the efficiency of the precipitation and flocculation reaction in both the ACTIFLO® and MULTIFLO™ technologies. The draft-tube reactor provides a high level of homogenization reducing retention times, chemical and power consumption.
High Rate Softening Solution to fit your needs
Both ACTIFLO® and MULTIFLO™ can be provided as prefabricated plants or as custom-engineered solutions. Our trailer-mounted pilot units are available for on-site testing to confirm the best technology for your application.
Frac Water Treatment for the Oil & Gas Industry
Our MULTIFLO™ Softening technology is ideal for treating frac water for reuse in oil & gas exploration activities. The Softening process removes scale-formers that can cause problems in the drilling operations if the water is reused without treatment.
One mobile solutions can treat up to 10,000 barrels per day and can be moved from site to site as field development progresses.
