Hydraulic fracturing proppants are manufactured beads that help to keep induced hydraulic fractures open and allow oil or gas to flow freely from a well. Manufacturing of these proppants is a complex process that involves multiple steps and processes to ensure that the beads don’t break down under high pressure conditions. During manufacturing, multiple wastewater streams are generated as byproducts of various processes. WaterTectonics worked with a proppant manufacturing in Louisiana to deploy a solution for treating the wastewater from these various processes. A WaveIonics electrocoagulation treatment system was deployed to help reduce Total Suspended Solids and Chemical Oxygen Demand in the effluent water. Cone bottom tanks and an integrated sludge pumping and management system were integrated into the design to minimize tank cleanout and maintenance hours.
