How It Works
What Makes Us Different
Our system is one of the most advanced in the world and – by all accounts – the most advanced mobile system in commercial use. Unlike conventional spiral-wound filters, our system employs patented membrane separation technology. It is best suited for processing slop water, cross-flow filtration, dead-end filtration and dissolved-air flotation-rejection flows, where maximum fluid recovery is essential to minimize disposal costs. Unlike other static filtration system, our mobile filtration system allows us to help you clean industrial water wherever you are!
How it Works
The waste volume reduction membranes process liquid waste in a small-footprint configuration. The AMFS System treats fluids as high as 50% v/v and assists in the maximum recovery of fluids, drastically reducing disposal volumes.
Because vibration keep the membranes from fouling, instead of flowing fluid across them, flow rates are not as critical to the AMFS process. Its capacity to remove the smallest entrained solids is reflected in routine delivery of comparatively clean permeate.
“Good Vibrations Make AMFS’s Technology Unique.”
Our unique vibration technology allows installation of different membrane sizes, ranging from micro-filtration, ultra-filtration, nano-filtration to reverse osmosis.
This suits it to a wide range of operating environments.
It also employs surface — rather than depth — filtration when membrane cleaning is required.
Our Technology Compared to Common Materials in Industrial Water
We can clear numerous kinds of industrial water. Our technology makes this possible
- 53’ trailer mounted system
- Two membrane towers with approximately 2,400 sq. feet of 0.001 um nano filtration membrane.
- High resistance to fouling from oil & grease and polymers.
- Easily removes suspended solids, producing permeate with turbidity less than 5 NTU.
- Drastic reduction of bacteria numbers (99% plus).
- Owater, slop water, chemical water, and pit water, to name a few on-site treatment of waste water, frac flow back, produced.
What is the scope of work or goals you want to achieve at a particular?
Our main interest is client satisfaction and repeat business through quality and consistency in our filtration of fluid, using mechanical nano-filtration to remove particulates from water resulting in a two-phase separation: essentially, potable water and the other stream (example: oil and other particulates). We are a one-stop shop. We have the ability to design and assemble equipment that meets your needs, as well as offering technical consulting solutions for all things water and waste treatment.
What is the volume throughput?
We can process up to 420,000 gallons per day, depending upon hours available to operate on location and the solids content – not just total suspended solids but also some dissolved solids within the fluid to be treated. This is important, because clear water can be laden with dissolved solids that would require slower rates to process in order to have potable water effluent.
What solids content and particle size distribution can be passed through the system?
Our system can handle up to 50% v/v solids and uses nano filtration. Our nano filter has a pore size ~0.001 micron (um). This removes most organic molecules, nearly all viruses and bacteria, most of the natural organic matter and range of salts. It also removes divalent ions which make water hard. Typical applications are oily water, but we are not shy with removing solids such as clays (bentonite, etc.). The application will determine if we would place other plug and play items with our system.
What are the installation/operational constraints?
The technology is completely enclosed within our 53’ insulated and heated trailer. It can be mobilized to any location that can support a rig and 53’ tractor trailer movement. We can accommodate all industrial sites that allow for the rig and trailer access described herein.
What is your ideal project for consideration?
All projects will be considered. Our ideal areas of filtration are where we can process 50,000-420,000 gallons each day for longer periods of time. That said, depending on the value of the project to the client, shorter term projects/problems can easily become economical. When adding mob / de-mob costs, however, the longer the project, the better. We can assist you in determining how to approach your problem and help with the implementation of a plan. We look forward to the opportunity of meeting with you and your environmental/engineering team to determine how we can work together and provide support. We will work with your team to create synergies and exceed your expectations.
