After 3 months of effort and only 15,000 gallons dewatered, Integrated Engineers, Inc was contacted and asked to solve the problem. Using Floccin HP, the problem was easily solved. The rest of the 50,000 gallons was dewatered in 8 hours with only 500 lbs of Floccin HP.
Oil Field Sludge Dewatering
An oil field contract dewatering company was unable to dewater the oily/water/solids from several oil field storage tanks using conventional coagulants/flocculants. The swings in solids loading and oil content made it very difficult to control the correct dosage rate as conventional chemistry has a very tight tolerance to maintain a dewaterable floc. The result was an ongoing blinding problem for the mobile belt press.
