PETRECO HYDROMATION Nutshell Filter

High-performance, reliable processing of large flow rates with a single vessel

A proven, highly efficient separation system, the PETRECO HYDROMATION nutshell filter provides high throughput for purification of oily process water and industrial wastewater while delivering operational reliability with a >99% annualized online performance history.

PETRECO HYDROMATION Nutshell Filter

HYDROMATION filters are the ideal solution for removal of suspended solids and oil from produced water before discharge into the environment or reinjection. They remove 95% to 99% of suspended solids and 90% to 99% of insoluble hydrocarbons without the use of chemicals, providing oil discharge levels as low as 5 ppm or less.

Advantages

  • Aggressive backwash mechanism reduces media loss compared with other designs, resulting in lower opex.
  • Internal position of backwash system reduces vessel height requirement for media fluidization, lowering capex.
  • Larger vessels have reduced backwash volume production and a smaller backwash treatment system, providing both lower capex and opex.
  • Horizontal designs enable high-flow-rate processing in a single vessel, resulting in lower capex.
