Mobile Unit

ElectroSep’s™ mobile (non-fixed) unit is housed in a standard 50 ft trailer. All of the facilities required for the treatment are housed in the trailer. Tie-ins are easily completed from one side of the trailer.

Due to the simplicity of the ElectroSep’s™process no additional trailer or storage tanks are required. The unit’s footprint on site is thus minimized. Tie-ins can usually be completed in a single day.

Advantages of Using Our Mobile Unit

Dimensions

The mobile (non fixed) unit is entirely contained in one trailer. The trailer is 50 ft long by 8 ft wide and 14 ft high. No other trailers, skids or storage tanks are normally required.

Tie-ins and Utility requirements

Tie-in and utility requirements are minimal.

Amine Dilution

The amine is not diluted in the ElectroSep’s™ process. The only difference between the feed amine stream to the unit and that being returned to the amine unit is the reduction in the heat stable salt content.

Amine Unit Operation

During treatment the presence of the mobile unit does not impact the operation of the amine unit being treated. No adjustments to the operation of the amine unit are required. The physical presence of the mobile unit (one 50 ft trailer) is the only observable change. The ElectroSep™ process is continuous; there are no amine system level fluctuations, which can occur with a batch process. There is no need to store the amine for treatment. The process commonly treats a slipstream taken directly from the operating amine unit. It is also possible to treat stored amine.

Chemical requirements

Neutralization requirements are almost stoichiometric. No excess base is required. The generated waste stream pH is neutral. No acid is required for pH adjustment of the waste stream. The mobile unit is equipped with a caustic injection pump.

Waste Stream

Our process utilizes electrodialysis (essentially an electric field) to transfer salts from the amine being treated into a fresh water stream, thereby producing a salt-water stream that is sent to waste. The pH of this stream is normally between 9 and 10. There is no need for a pH adjustment. This stream will contain a small quantity of amine. The quantity of base utilized for neutralization is almost stoichiometric and because there is no need to wash the membranes, the volume of waste is minimized. Normally the waste stream can be sent directly without further treatment to the facilities wastewater treatment unit. The waste stream is considered non-hazardous.

Safety

Our process is inherently safe. In an emergency the unit can be shutdown immediately by pushing the emergency stop button. All operators have taken extensive safety training. ElectroSep™ provides a very safe and efficient amine reclamation solution.
