A water treatment process which cleans by separating produced water, frack water, sand, gas and oil/water. Separates three components simultaneously. The Voraxial® Separator technology is fast with no pressure drop for efficient separation of large volumes of liquids and solids with different specific gravities.
The Voraxial® Separator acts as an in-line, continuous flow separator that can conduct high volume liquid/liquid, liquid/solid or liquid/liquid/solid separation. Below are both standardized Voraxial Separators and customized systems built to our customers' needs separating 1 to 5,000 gallons per minute.
The 2000 Duo technology for very fine produced water cleanup with two Voraxial® Separators:
Produced water or frac water first passes through a Voraxial 2000 for bulk separation which concentrates the fluid streams.
Then the cleaner water passes through a coalescer. Next the clean water is separated a second time and
finally passes through filters before becoming discharged at or above EPA discharge levels*.
For produced water on and offshore oil production, fracking, under-water separation; used for high speed quality wastewater separtion
Offshore oil production. Other uses include fracking and Other Industry Uses listed on our home page.

In this Produced Water Document by John Veil at Argonne National Labs, the following topics are addressed:
• What is produced water?
• What is in produced water?
• Approaches to minimize risk – U.S. approach – North Sea approach
• Why are there differences?
Conclusions are on pages 39-40. They are as follows:
"Oil and grease is the baseline of produced water regulatory controls in most countries
• Most jurisdictions use additional controls beyond oil and grease limits
• The two best-established systems (U.S. and North Sea) have followed dramatically different approaches to manage produced water risk
– Both approaches successfully manage risk but place the management controls on opposite ends of the process
• North Sea emphasizes inputsIs one approach better than the other?
• U.S. emphasizes outputs
– One may be more effective than the other in some situations
– Conversely, one may be more constraining or restrictive than needed to ensure environmental protection"

The compact, high volume efficient separation technology allows for complete turnkey solutions to be built meeting each customers discharge specification while reducing the acquisition, operation and maintenance cost.
The high pressure required by other manufacturers causes the wear and tear on the machinery parts. The Voraxial® Separator can operate efficiently at high flow without a high feed pressure.
