1 TYRONE ENVIRONMENTAL GRP. Making Crystal Slurry and Dry Crystals:cleaning fracture water for Oil and Gas drilling
2 WHO WE ARE:Tyrone Environmental is involved in recycling water, plastics and rubber.We have teamed up with equipment suppliers of patented and proprietary systems to efficiently clean and recycle fracture water and salts in gas drilling.
3 BRINE WATER: CHOICESYou can choose whether you wish to remove and recycle as much water as possible, but before salt crystals form, which is called making saturated brine;orYou can choose to remove even more water such that the you make a slurry with salt crystals;You can choose to remove and recycle the maximum amount of water and dry the salt crystals
4 Level of De-WateringRecap: The amount of water you remove depends on what you wish to do with the water and contaminates in the water.Do you wish to create a…Saturated BrineorCrystal SlurryDry Crystal
5 EQUIPMENT CONFIGURATION Different equipment is required in the making of either a saturated brine, or a crystal slurry, or a dry crystal outputOur focus here is on crystal slurry, or a dry crystal output
6 Crystal Slurry: Important Recovering brine crystals require the solution to be processed in a Forced Circulation Crystallizer. (see slide #8)The Vapor Compression Cycle is integrated making an Ultra-Efficient Process. (see PowerPoint: “Making Saturated Brine” for details)
7 CRYSTAL SLURRY: Forced circulation Vessel is designed for collecting and growing crystals. The solution containing both saturated brine and crystals is “force-circulated” downward through a “stand-pipe” where crystals have resident time to grow.The co-mingled solution is force-circulated through a centrifugal separator where brine and crystals are separated
10 Forced SeparationThe Co-Mingled solution has two components having different mass:Brine Liquid…lighter component circulates back to the vessel andBrine Crystals…heavier component discharges the system as a Wet Slurry.As Slurry cools, more crystals form and separate from the remaining saturated liquid. This liquid can be sent back to the Distillation & Recovery system for more dewatering, if practical.
11 Dry CrystalsDepending on desired dryness, Slurry can be post-processed by conventional means and equipment.

18 TECHNOLOGY: DISTILLATION Features and Advantages: 1/2 penny a gallon or less in operating costsUltra efficient energy consumptionClosed loop system - water can be reusedClosed loop system - no air emissionsNo membranes or no chemicals requiredConcentrate often has a commercial valueMinimizes or eliminates sewer dischargeOutput surpasses EPA / Municipal requirementsFully automated, user friendly control panelProduction materials can be recovered / reusedFor more Details on this Technology see PowerPoint: “Making Saturated Brine”
19 TECHNOLOGY: CRYSTALS SEPARATION a revolutionary and proprietary technology that efficiently separates large volumes of solids and liquids with different specific gravitiesThe Voraxial® Separator acts as an in-line, continuous flow separator that can conduct a two-way or three-way separationUsed to separate the salts from the slurryVoraxial 2000
22 BENEFITS OF OUR SYSTEM: It is mobile and can be operated in the fieldYou choose how much water you wish to remove, recycle, or disposeIt eliminates the need to dispose of large volume of brine contaminated wasteIt provides resource recovery of brine combined with water recycling
23 BENEFITS OF OUR SYSTEM: Ecological BenefitsRecycling Clean Water and Brine prevents contaminating the ground, ground water, or local POTW.Recovers valuable commodities that are otherwise contaminants.
25 RESULTS: ENERGY CONSUMPTION & COSTS Only 3¢ to make sellable saltTyrone D&R System is engineered to be more efficient than most Evaporation Systems
26 MASS FLOW Example: 15% Brine in Feedstock 100,000 GPD (833,000 PPD)
27 MASS FLOW Example: 15% Brine in Feedstock 100,000 GPD (833,000 PPD)
28 MASS FLOW Example: 15% Brine in Feedstock 100,000 GPD (833,000 PPD) COMMENTS:At each stage, (saturated brine, crystal slurry, and dry crystals) successive amounts of water is removed.99% of the water is removed in the 15% Brine example (slide #26)If there is a market for clear brine, the more clear brine you can sell, the more revenue you generate and perhaps you will choose to stop at making clear saturated brineIf there is no market for clear brine, you may wish to reduce your disposal costs by de-water to the maximum
34 FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Crystal Slurry, with sale value, ROI: ± 1 yearCrystal Slurry, without sale value, Extends deep well life by a factor of 4$2 Million well cost plus $4 Million System cost = $6 Million500 bls vs daily disposal translates intoExtended well life by a factor of 4Dry Crystals, no deep well required, ROI: ± 27 years
