History & LEADERSHIP
The management of Water Vision has expanded with an executive group that adds extra expertise in processed water and wastewater treatment and reuse solutions. This team is globally recognized in the EC industry for developing and marketing modular, cutting edge equipment and services for treating liquids in all industries.
Water Vision’s innovation and expertise bring benefits to its clients not found elsewhere. Our efficient technology reduces capital and operating costs, lowers maintenance, dramatically reduces downtime, enhances environmental results, and improves operator safety.
How does ec work?
Electrocoagulation (EC) is a water treatment process used by a variety of industries to destabilize and aggregate contaminant particles, ions (heavy metals) and colloids, and hold them in solution using an electrical charge. The process traditionally utilizes an anode and a cathode, stimulated by a DC power source to destabilize the charges. This operation separates water from flocculated materials, allowing those materials to be removed, leaving clear water.
Passivation – The Culprit
While the complexity of electrocoagulation technology has been understood and proven effective for many years, technical issues and operating costs have restricted its use. Perhaps its largest detractor is passivation. During the EC process, electrodes become coated and fouled with a non-conducting oxide, especially when processing wastewater with high concentrations of dissolved solids and scaling compounds. This passivation causes the electrocoagulation process to fail through reduced efficiency, increased power consumption and time-consuming maintenance necessary to manually clean, acid wash or replace electrode plates. Water Vision has the answer to eliminating the EC water treatment problems associated with passivation.
Exploration and Production
Municipalities are continually under pressure to update existing facilities and to produce drinkable water in higher volumes for growing populations. Water Vision’s ThinCell® technology assists with bacteria destruction and suspended solids removal in a single, efficient treatment. The technology can adapt to existing plants without costly retrofit.
Refineries consume vast amounts of water in its operations. Thincell® technology addresses the numerous water streams resident in the refinery. Existing on-site clarifiers make ThinCell® technology a simple addition. The Thincell® solution assists in reducing maintenance and restoration costs of heat treatment and cooling tower equipment. Water Vision supports pre-process silica removal and water hardness control to minimize premature scale buildup.
Exploration and Production
Water produced and flowing back from horizontal fracturing operations contains residual hydrocarbons, bacteria, boron, silica and other impurities. High solids sediment and bacterial growth are problems, as are varying flow rates. Thincell® technology provides a cost effective on-site treatment with a minimal footprint. Sludge removal is reduced and water is re-usable without expensive disposal costs. Its lighter weight equipment allows for easy mobility and facilitates re-installation in the field.
