Reduce wastewater streams to dry solids

In order to meet stringent zero liquid discharge (ZLD) requirements, environmentally conscience companies are turning to advanced technologies that eliminate wastewater streams and leave behind clean water and solid salt crystals.

Combined with other brine concentration technologies such as evaporators, crystallizers concentrate the wastewater to a solid that can be safely disposed of in a landfill or recovered as a valuable by-product for use.

ZLD Crystallizers Features:

GE’s patented produced water evaporators are effective in treating SAGD produced water as well as once-through steam generator (OTSG) blowdown.

  • Skid-mounted, fully packaged systems that include auxiliary equipment and controls for ease of installation
  • Designed to recover specific waste stream salts for valuable product recovery
  • Simple color graphic controls and an automatic wash system to ensure ease of operation
  • Minimal energy consumption with mechanical vapor recompression (MVR) technology for steam vapor recycling
