Clear Brine Fluids Filtration Systems

Plate and frame diatomaceous earth (DE) filtration systems are recommended for filtering brines, chemicals, and produced water in completion, stimulation, and workover operations.

Our SafeDEflo® filtration systems offer significant safety and environmental improvements, eliminating waste, dust, and the need for rig personnel to lift, cut, and load heavy packages of DE material.

Each SafeDEflo system arrives as a complete package that includes one stackable control unit and six (6) preloaded intermediate bulk carriers (IBCs). Each IBC holds 1,000 pounds of filter media. The system facilitates quick and safe handling of filtration media, pairing preloaded filter media containers with an automated dispensing system and control panel.  A unique cone discharge valve prevents rat-holing, bridging, and the segregation problems commonly associated with conventional butterfly valves.

Each of the five sizes of SafeDEflo systems has multiple components to maximize flexibility and the most efficient use of rig space:

SafeDEflo® 600 Square-Foot Plate and Frame DE Package

Recommended for well volumes up to 500 barrels.  Footprint = 22 ft. long x 15 ft. wide. Flow rate = 6-8 bbl/min.

SafeDEflo® C600 Compact Square-Foot Plate and Frame DE Package

Recommended for well volumes up to 500 barrels when higher flow rates and a more compact unit is needed. Footprint = 16 ft. long x 15 ft. wide.  Flow rate = 8-10 bbl/min.

SafeDEflo® 1100 Square-Foot Plate and Frame DE Package

Recommended for well volumes up to 500 barrels when higher flow rates and a more compact unit is needed.  Uses about the same space as an 800 square-foot unit.  Stackable.  Footprint = 24 ft. long x 15 ft. wide.  Flow rate = 8-12 bbl/min.  Can be used with the optional SafeDEflo® Automated DE Delivery System.

SafeDEflo® 1300 Square-Foot Plate and Frame DE Package

Recommended for well volumes up to 500 barrels when higher flow rates and a more compact unit is needed.  Stackable.  Uses inline manifold system, features four corner discharge plates, and allows for more active filtration time.  Footprint = 26 ft. long x 15 ft. wide.  Flow rate = 12-14 bbl/min.   Can be used with the optional SafeDEflo® Automated DE Delivery System.

SafeDEflo® 1500 Square-Foot Plate and Frame DE Package

Recommended for well volumes up to 500 barrels when higher flow rates and a more compact unit is needed. Stackable.  Uses inline manifold system, features four corner discharge plates, and allows for more active filtration time.  Footprint = 26 ft. long x 15 ft. wide.  Flow rate = 12-14 bbl/min.   Can be used with the optional SafeDEflo® Automated DE Delivery System.

SafeDEflo® Automated DE Delivery System

This automated delivery system offers significant safety and environmental improvements during DE filtration operations by eliminating waste, dust, and the need for rig personnel to lift, cut, and load heavy packages of DE material.

  • Arrives at your job site as a complete package that includes one stackable control unit and six (6) preloaded intermediate bulk carriers (IBCs). Each IBC holds 1,000 pounds of filter media.
  • Pairs preloaded filter media containers with an automated dispensing system and control panel.
  • Accurately dispenses and regulates the amount of DE material being added to the filtration unit from the pneumatic control unit panel. The unique cone discharge valve prevents rat-holing, bridging, and the segregation problems commonly associated with conventional butterfly valves.
