Our Products
& Technology

IX Water matches breakthrough technical innovations with established components to provide you a flexible, cost effective, modular water treatment system.

Z

PartiClear™

Contaminants: Suspended solids (e.g. iron, manganese, sand, grit)
Method: Microfiltration
Description: PartiClear filters out any particles, oil, and grease remaining from the customer oil recovery process. PartiClear is a 304 stainless steel canister with a replaceable filter and is designed to protect subsequent media from fouling.

Z

MetalClear™

Contaminants: Aluminum, antimony, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, thallium, zinc, etc.
Method: Adsorption & Ion Exchange
Description: MetalClear™ is a IX Water product for the elimination of a variety of metals commonly found in produced water.

The system employs one of IX Water’s specialty formulated ion exchange medias to affect metals removal: IxMZ-S. This media was specifically designed and selected to meet the needs of the oil industry: long lasting, low cost, and highly durable. The system itself is very low power, requiring only a feed pump, operates at ambient pressure, and is on-site regenerable with NaCl (table salt) or waste brine from a subsequent salt removal process.

**Targeted metals include: Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Beryllium, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Iron, Lead, Manganese, Mercury, Nickel, Thallium, Uranium, and Zinc.

Z

OrganiClear™

Contaminants: Volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds
(VOCs and SVOCs), BTEX (e.g. benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene & xylenes), arsenic, etc.
Method: Adsorption
Description: IX Water OrganiClear™ is the result of over a decade of research and development at the world’s premier energy laboratory. For the first time ever, a completely reliable and cost efficient solution is available for the elimination of dissolved organics, VOCs, and BTEX in oil & gas produced water.

OrganiClear uses a proprietary, all natural, adsorption media called IxMZ, which is reusable for months to a year of operation, and recharges with nothing more than ambient air.

OrganiClear was specifically designed to eliminate organics from produced water, has a low capital cost, is completely effective, integrates with new or existing treatments trains, and costs less than any other dissolved organics treatment.

Z

MetalClear++™

Contaminants: Scalants including magnesium, calcium, strontium, barium, etc.
Method: Ion Exchange
Description: IX Power Clean Water’s MetalClear ++™ machine combines MetalClear’s ability to remove heavy metals, with additional technology to remove the alkaline earth metals, which commonly cause scale problems. Systems can be designed to effect removal rates of up to 100%.

The system employs a combination of IX Water’s specialty formulated ion exchange medias (IxMZ++), to effect metals and scalant removal concurrently. This media was specifically designed and selected to meet the needs of the oil industry; long lasting, low cost, and highly durable. The system itself is very low power, requiring only a feed pump, operates at ambient pressure, and is on-site regenerable with NaCl (table salt), or waste brine from a subsequent salt removal process.

Typical configuration includes one MetalClear++ reactor paired with each OrganiClear module. Regeneration is affected through circulation of brine over a several hour period, seamlessly fitting into OrganiClear’s regeneration schedule, though required less frequently.

Depending on regeneration technique, high metal waste brine may be held to a volume of less than 1/100th of flow volume. This waste can be safely disposed of along with reject brine from the sites salt removal process, or evaporated and disposed of as solid waste.

**Targeted species include: magnesium, calcium, strontium, and barium.

Z

SaltClear™

Contaminants: Sodium chloride and others
Method: Electrodyalisis
Description: SaltClear™ is IX Power Clean Water product for the reduction and removal of TDS from brine. The system is a custom designed vertically stacked tube multi effect distillation system. SaltClear is well suited to varying levels of TDS, can except all types of water chemistry makeup, and uses significantly less power than similar systems (.48 kWh/bbl).

SaltClear is a robust system with a lifecycle in the range of 20 years, that requires shutdown and maintenance only once per year, and requires a lower level of operator skill than similar membrane plants.

Z

SulfurClear™

Contaminants: Hydrogen sulfide
Method: Contact Oxidation
Description: SulfurClear™ is a water purification technology designed for the elimination of H2S, mercaptans, and odor causing bacteria. The process exposes feed water to a strong oxidizing agent chemically bound to an inert substrate. Substrates include natural zeolites and synthetic polymers and are chosen to best meet the customer’s needs.

The oxidizing media may be recharged on site using a sodium hypochlorite solution at concentrations similar to household bleach.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is "produced water?"

The term “produced water,” in a generic industry sense, is used to describe water that is extracted from the earth during oil and gas operations, and often in mining operations. However, used specifically, the term “produced water” is not the same thing as ‘fracking water, or ‘frack flowback.

1.) ‘Fracking water is fresh water that is trucked onto a site, and then mixed with additives. This water is then injected into the earth at high pressure to fracture the rock formation to allow the oil or gas trapped within the formation, to be accessed.
2.) ‘Frack flowback is that water then flowing back up to the surface. About 80% of the ‘facking fluid used to complete a well will come back in the first 30 days of production. After that, the water that comes up along with oil and gas is natural produced water.
3.) Produced water, used as a specific term, is what comes up next. It is the naturally occurring water that comes up with the oil and gas from the drilled formation, after the well has been ‘fracked.

How much produced water is generated?

It is commonly known that for every barrel of oil, anywhere from 1 to 50 barrels of produced water are generated. (1 barrel = 42 gallons) Worldwide, the oil & gas industry creates an estimated 150 billion barrels of produced water each year that must be put somewhere. Current practices for dealing with produced water cost industry at least
$75 billion per year. It is by far the largest volume, at 98%, of the entire waste stream generated by the oil & gas industry.
