    Oil spill recovery

    As the exploration for oil and gas enters areas of greater environmental vulnerability, the need for proven, reliable and robust equipment is doubly important. DESMI continues to answer this challenge with existing as well as specially developed oil spill recovery systems to operate in the most difficult and harsh environments known to man. This equipment is known as the ARCTIC range. This is a special tool kit of systems to enable you to successfully contain, recover and store hydrocarbons in the Arctic environment. In addition, we offer a range of ‘fail safe’ fire booms for use in controlled burning of oil in ice.

  • Enhanced oil recovery treatment for oil and gas industry

    Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is a broad O&G Industry term, but almost always involves some kind of water treatment processes. Whether you are trying to increase injectivity, kill bacteria, break emulsions or destroy polymers, MIOX has equipment to help. MIOX’s exclusive Mixed Oxidant technology turns your EOR site into an on-demand chemistry factory - eliminating middle men and lowering costs.

  • Enhanced Oil Recovery - Produced/ Impaired/ Wastewater

    WILSA® technology improves the efficiency of existing separation equipment in produced/ impaired water. The non-chemical ElectoWave Conditioning system supercharges Stokes Law to break emulsions, enhance coalescing, reduce viscosity and retention time. This allows traditional/ existing separators to function more efficiently and to either reduce or eliminated chemical programs used to achieve separation.

  • Wilsa ElectroWaveTM Conditioning - Non-chemical water conditioning, break emulsions, enhance recovery

    Hudson Industries (a licensed partner) is now offering the patented Wilsa ElectroWaveTM Conditioner (EWC) for non-chemical water conditioning that provides enhanced oil recovery up to 99.999% with the power to break difficult emulsions. The Wilsa Effect is targeted at polar fluids, such as water. The Wilsa EWC directly targets the surface and interfacial tension of water molecules which breaks emulsions and forces the water to reject foreign matter such as oil and suspended solids. Furthermore viscosity is greatly reduced which allows the now coalesced oil to exit the water column with less friction, thus Stokes Law is fundamentally enhanced and retention time is greatly reduced. Combine the Wilsa EWC with your existing separation equipment or pair it with Hudson Coalescing Separator for maximum oil recovery/ removal. Contact us today for more information about Hudson Separators and Wilsa ElectroWaveTM Conditioning.

    Port, Harbours & Terminals

    Ports, harbours and terminals demand special consideration as the equipment requirements can vary significantly. This could range from the simple, inexpensive environmentally friendly ‘A’ Boom to OilFence, a rugged asymmetric boom. OilFence can boast in excess of 15 years of service in permanent deployment applications and due to its massive reserve buoyancy, it can support ‘fish-net’ suspended from the boom itself. Many of the recovery systems in the nearshore and shoreline segment can be employed in ports, harbours and terminals. However, we also offer the versatile ‘Mop’ systems which can be installed to influence a large surface area. Indeed, ‘Mop’ skimmers have also proven themselves in the open waters, oil pits and industrial applications.

    Beach & Shoreline

    For oil spill response in beach and shoreline environments DESMI offers a whole host of equipment to handle any eventuality. The smaller sizes of Ro-Boom and Ro-Beach are unequalled in application and robustness while the range of lightweight Troilbooms can meet the lower cost expectations. In addition the famous Termite and Mini-Max weir skimmers are proven performers in recovery. Recovery systems are also available in vacuum designs from the well-known Ro-Vac to the highly portable Ro-Vac Mini – the latter even with its own transfer pump system to divert the pollutant. Although the Ro-Tank can also be used on land or the back of a trailer, the Troil range of open top tanks offer the perfect solution for storage of the recovered oil. These tanks are very lightweight and need no special tools to erect. The tanks offer a wide selection of capacities – indeed , the smaller units are ideal for decontamination duties.

    Fast Water, Rivers & Lakes

    Oil spill response operations are notably difficult in rivers with strong current. In addition, when considering response times for river spills in relation to the mobilisation time required for conventional land- or vessel-based boom systems, a timely response is often a logistic impossibility especially in the more remote regions. Therefore, equipment must be readily at hand near the sites of operation and pre-rigged lines, cables and mooring areas are a must. Selection of a good location to deploy the oil containment system is dependent upon prior planning and understanding of the currents. Drift studies, river run off histories, tidal current tables and charts, plus computer modeling are all useful tools to understand the flow patterns and to develop recovery strategies. Reading the currents and flow patterns require practice and understanding of the hydrodynamics involved.

    Coating and Laminating

    MEGTEC’s experience and application know-how are at your command for tough drying and web handling applications such as slow-drying coatings and materials or thin film coating and laminating. Dryers can be equipped with a wide variety of nozzle configurations ranging from simple slot nozzles to sophisticated Coanda-style air bars and patented air foil systems. A full range of heat sources are available including steam, direct and indirect gas-fired, thermal oil, electric, hot water and IR. In addition, the air handling systems can be integrated into the dryer enclosure or stand-alone for remote installation. When the process requires pollution control systems for solvent-based applications, MEGTEC also offers regenerative thermal oxidizers, solvent recovery, distillation and purification systems. MEGTEC also offers waste heat recovery packages to “close the energy loop” between pollution controls and the process, in order to reduce production costs and increase customer profits

  • Sulfide Oxidation with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)

    Sulfide Odor Control Sulfide is found throughout the environment as a result of both natural and industrial processes. Most sulfide found in nature was produced biologically (under anaerobic conditions) and occurs as free hydrogen sulfide (H2S) - characterized by its rotten egg odor. We are most likely to encounter biogenic H2S in sour groundwaters, swamps and marshes, natural gas deposits, and sewage collection/treatment systems. Manmade sources of H2S typically occur as a result of natural materials containing sulfur (e.g., coal, gas and oil) being refined into industrial products. For a variety of reasons - aesthetics (odor control), health (toxicity), ecological (oxygen depletion in receiving waters), and economic (corrosion of equipment and infrastructure) - sulfide laden wastewaters must be handled carefully and remediated before they can be released to the environment. Typical discharge limits for sulfide are < 1 mg/L. Sulfide Treatment Alternatives There are dozens of alternatives for treating sulfide laden waters, ranging from simple air stripping (for the low levels present in groundwaters) to elaborate sulfur recovery plants (used to treat several tons per day at refineries and coal burning power plants). There are processes based on biology (using compost filters, scrubbing media, or inhibition/disinfection), chemistry (oxidation, precipitation, absorption, and combination), and physics (adsorption, volatilization, and incineration). Each process occupies a niche which is often defined by the scale and continuity of treatment, whether the sulfide is in solution or is a gas, the concentration of sulfide involved, and the disposition of the sulfide containing medium. However, for reasons relating to convenience and flexibility, chemical oxidation (using hydrogen peroxide) continues to grow in its scope of application. Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide While other peroxygens such as permonosulfuric (Caro’s) acid, peracetic acid, and persulfates will oxidize sulfide, their use for this application is overkill. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is considerably simpler and more cost-effective. H2O2 may control sulfides in two ways, depending on the application: Prevention - by providing dissolved oxygen which inhibits the septic conditions which lead to biological sulfide formation; and Destruction - by oxidizing sulfide to elemental sulfur or sulfate ion.
