Wyoming - RO Brine Silica Reduction

This client operates a natural gas plant in Wyoming. They were having issues with silica and pH with a new reverse osmosis (RO) system. WaterTectonics was brought in to develop a process to precipitate silica from the brine water so it could be deep well injected. After a successful pilot, WaterTectonics designed a full-scale, 150gpm plant with chemical precipitation to meet requirements for disposal.
