Treat shale gas produced waters for safe discharge or reuse in hydraulic fracturing.

SaltMaker Evaporator Crystallizer is a mobile zero liquid discharge (ZLD) treatment system capable of treating hyper saline shale gas produced water for safe discharge or reuse in fracking. Produce solids and reach true zero liquid discharge

Solutions for:

  • Shale gas produced water
  • Hydraulic fracturing
  • RO reject

Benefit from:

  • Mobile system, move from wellhead to wellhead
  • Use wellhead gas as thermal energy source
  • Meet discharge regulations
  • Produce solids, reach true zero liquid discharge (ZLD)
  • Reuse shale gas produced waters for fracking
  • Simple, safe, modular
  • Mobile pilot plants available


SaltMaker Evaporator Crystallizer

  • Modular, low temperature crystallization for true zero liquid discharge
  • Produce freshwater and solids
  • Self cleaning and reliable
  • Auto: on/off/clean
  • Wellhead gas used as thermal energy source

Past projects:

saltmaker zero liquid discharge pilot treating shale gas fracking water

The SaltMaker Evaporator Crystallizer was used to treat multiple hyper saline shale gas produced waters. The projects demonstrated reliable production of high quality freshwater and solids for low volume disposal. The freshwater produced can be reused in fracking or meet surface discharge regulations.
