The automated HYDRO3CIDE system is a more effective and economical solution than liquid chemical treatment of produced and flowback water. In the conventional method, chemical biocides are added between the wellhead and oil/water separators at a predetermined dose to kill bacteria. As produced water quality changes, however, the continuous dose rate can be ineffective and/or too costly.
The HYDRO3CIDE system continuously measures water quality and automatically changes the dose as water quality changes. As an added benefit, the HYDRO3CIDE system injects ozone and oxygen as gases, creating induced gas flotation that improves oil/water separation in the gun barrel separators. Rejected nitrogen gas from the ozone generation system can be used as a blanket gas in the oil/water separation tanks.
As a purchased or rental unit, the HYDRO3CIDE system can deliver higher quality water at a fraction of the cost of a chemical injection program.
