Oil & Gas

Water Treatment for the Oil & Gas Industry

As with any sector Kirton supply systems to, the Oil & Gas sector require a unique set of regulations to comply with. Our ATEX Zone II validated parts and conformity with WHO standards for drinking water, is a part of what makes us so diverse in our supply of products.

Typical systems currently installed off-shore include that of a RO Desalination System, inclusive of Pre-Treatment, fed from the sea. Followed by dosing of anti-scalant agent and biocide to avoid precipitation of calcium carbonate and to destroy polluting organics, respectively. Following remineralisation of the RO permeate water, further treatment has been used to provide a sterile water supply. As with all systems we design, processes are automated and are programmed by our specialist engineers to ensure efficient use with minimum maintenance implications. Training for on-site engineers in the operation of the system can be arranged.

All our systems are unique in design, ensuring efficiency throughout the power and cost spectrum. With the lowest management/maintenance cost possible, we will always ensure to provide the best quality of products in the industry.
