WaterOClean Activated Carbon System

WateOClean provides a wide range of bulk Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filter media to handle organics removal and odor in industrial, municipal, remediation, and other applications. We have an extensive line activated-carbon filter media for both liquid phase and vapor phase adsorption applications. We provide virgin coconut activated carbon and coal-based GAC as well as reactivated carbon for various adsorption processes. We deliver carbon in amounts ranging from small bags up to bulk activated carbon . WateOClean supplies also activated alumina for arsenic removal, bone char for lead and other metals removal. Organic Clay media and zeolite are supplied for Oil removal, an efficiency of 80-90% of the undissolved oil present in an influent water stream is easily achieved.

WaterOClean Organoclay System

MCM-830P OrganoClay is a powerful, selective adsorbent that will recognize hydrocarbons and other pollutants - but not water. Designed for use in conventional liquid-phase filtration vessels, the granular modified clay attracts contaminants like a magnet and locks them in its molecular structure. MCM-830P Modified Clay Media is produced in a proprietary process by combining sodium montmorillonite clay with a cationic quaternary amine salt, which replaces adsorbed sodium by ion exchange. Resulting clay surfaces become organophilic. Extensive application use and field testing of MCM-830P Modified Clay Media technology, verified by independent laboratories, has demonstrated removal of a wide range of contaminants to discharge levels which meet NPDES and other regulatory requirements. When used for water treatment, organoclay is commonly utilized in the upstream sector of the petroleum industry for removing hydrocarbons from refinery process water, but is rarely used in the production of petroleum. Many other industries also use organoclay, including shipping and dockside servicing, car washes, and other businesses that deal with an oily wastewater stream. OrganoClays have also been tested for treating ground and surface water for other organic chemicals such as PCBs and pesticides. Field testing and project implementation have consistently revealed that the combination of MCM-830P and granular activated carbon effectively removed hydrocarbons from produced water. Treated in field testing revealed specific findings: Reduces Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons to non-detectable levels. Sampling reveals TPH below detectable limits after adsorption by MCM-830P. Reduces Oil and Grease to non-detectable levels. Samples show Oil and Grease below detectable limits after adsorption by MCM-830P alone. Reduced soluble hydrocarbons Benzene, Ethylbenzene, Toluene, and Xylene to barely detectable levels. In samples BTEX was barely detectable after adsorption by MCM-830P alone. BTEX was below detectable limits after the combination of MCM-830P and granular activated carbon. In simple terms, MCM-830P eliminated hydrocarbon contamination from produced water during the test. Other testing has shown that these results are consistent across large-scale commercial applications. Effective Water Treatment with Minimal Cost Other laboratory testing of spent MCM-830P has shown that BTEX and other volatile hydrocarbons are adsorbed tightly enough for the spent product to pass the EPAs Toxicity Characteristic Leachate Procedure (TCLP) test and be disposed as a non-hazardous waste. The TCLP is used to identify the presence or absence of toxic chemicals that might be able to leach into groundwater after disposal. Being classified as a non-hazardous waste may allow the spent product to be landfilled, land farmed, or otherwise disposed in an economical and ecologically proper manner.
