HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 9, 2018–De Nora, a leading designer of safe, innovative, and sustainable water disinfection and oxidation, filtration and electrochlorination solutions, has completed delivery of eight ClorTec ® mobile disinfection systems to treat frack water at different sites in the Permian Basin. As part of the hydraulic fracturing process to release onshore oil and natural gas from shale, water must be disinfected shortly before going downhole to prevent growth of anaerobic, iron-consuming bacteria and other microorganisms. De Nora worked in conjunction with its partner, Neptune Solutions Company to provide fully equipped disinfection trailers, each with a ClorTec ® CT-DN on-site hypochlorite system, tanks, dosing pumps, analyzers, HVAC and a small lab. Each containerized system has the capacity to generate up to 1,500 pounds per day of a 0.8% sodium hypochlorite disinfection solution, a chlorine equivalent, using three common consumables: salt, water and electricity. This is sufficient to treat upwards of 235,000 barrels of frack water per day, per unit.
