With Exterran MBF®, oil is removed from produced water more efficiently and effectively. Unlike Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) systems that rely on solubility or typical IGF technologies that use large bubbles, our technology introduces trillions of microscopic bubbles to the untreated water. Because of the increased surface area and contact time, micro-bubbles are superior in capturing the smallest of oil particles and bringing them to the surface for skimming. MBF technology helps you attain cleaner water in the most challenging processes.
In all of our induced gas flotation systems, micro-bubbles are generated either through Exterran's patented Gas Liquid ReactorsTM or ONYX® Pumps. The choice of equipment depends on the specific application, but both methods produce a unique micro-bubble size distribution that results in significant performance advantages.
