The many options for managing brine, a term for saline wastewater from industrial processes, fall under two categories: brine treatment and brine disposal. Brine treatment involves desalinating the brine for reuse and producing a concentrated brine (lower liquid waste volume), or residual solids (zero liquid discharge).
Treat the Toughest Water
IMPROVE FRESHWATER RECOVERY
REDUCE TO ZERO
Saltworks works with you to understand your water treatment needs. Our technical experts study your treatment needs, then provide a detailed project proposal. We can target problematic metals and ions, treat your industrial wastewater for discharge, and lower your brine volume for transport or disposal.
We scale up systematically, from initial proposal to desktop study, and then pilot project. Our fleet of mobile pilot systems allow you to quickly and cost effectively prove performance and demonstrate results.
Our full-scale plants are standardized for cost effective, quality assured production but can also be modified to meet your specific needs. Flexible sale, lease, and operation options are available.
Water Treatment Options
To meet your requirements, our solutions can involve novel sensor technologies and leading chemical, thermal, ultrafiltration and membrane products:
- ScaleSense: a resilient, high-TDS automated real-time sensor.
- SaltMaker: our evaporator/crystallizer family that efficiently achieves minimal or zero liquid discharge.
- BrineRefine: a smart, compact, and modular chemical softening system.
- XtremeUF: an ultra-robust ceramic ultrafiltration system that removes solids, oils, grease etc.
- XtremeRO/NF: a next generation reverse osmosis or nanofiltration brine concentrator and water-maker.
- Flex EDR: a family of electrodialysis reversal (EDR) systems that selectively remove contaminants.
BrineRefine Chemical Softening System
Smart, compact, modular chemical softening system that reduces costs with precision dosing and built-in solids management. Improves recovery and minimizes fouling risk with intelligent controls that communicate with downstream assets, like RO or evaporators.
Next-generation water-maker and brine-concentrator based on reverse osmosis that achieves extreme freshwater recoveries, enabling cost-effective brine management and treatment of challenging organic-laden waters including oil & gas produced waters.
XtremeUF Ultrafiltration System
An ultra-robust ceramic ultrafiltration system that can remove suspended solids, oils, and grease from the most challenging slurries and impacted wastewaters.
XtremeUF cleans itself as it operates, to ensure your membranes maintain performance. We treat wastewaters no one else can.
A modern, modular, and intelligently automated evaporator-crystallizer that concentrates brine or produces low volume solids for zero liquid discharge. Use waste heat from operations and recycles heat through each of its multiple effects to slash your energy costs.
Before investing in an industrial evaporator for your water treatment applications, lower your risks by asking any vendor the following five questions that cover key topics such as brine disposal, scale prevention, and cost of ownership.
Recovering lithium in evaporation ponds can take a year or more and leaves behind lots of salt waste, but there are new technologies and processes that offer exciting options for lithium extraction.
Saltworks has started commissioning what we believe is a first-of-its-kind plant, with much customer interest. The membrane concentrator makes extensive use of reverse osmosis – turbocharged.
