Our Core Technology: Microbubble Flotation (MBF®)

Unlike Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) systems that rely on solubility or typical Induced Gas Flotation (IGF) technologies that use large bubbles, Exterran MBF®, introduces trillions of microscopic bubbles as small as 5 microns in size to untreated water. Utilizing MBF® oil separation is maximized even in the most challenging of waters.

In all of our flotation packages, microbubbles are generated either through Exterran’s patented Gas Liquid Reactor (GLR®) or ONYX® Pump with both methods producing a unique microbubble size distribution that results in significant performance advantages.

Gas Liquid Reactor®

The GLR® delivers exceptional microbubble generation while reducing overall costs. Using patented fluid dynamic processes, its superior efficiency allows reduction in the size of process equipment, thus saving capital and operating costs. With no internal moving parts, the Gas Liquid Reactor is remarkably simple to maintain and operate. A single vessel can process flows up to 350,000 BWPD.

ONYX® Pump

Small and lightweight, our ONYX® Pumps are an unrivaled powerhouse in microbubble generation. Utilizing a multi-stage centrifugal design, they are engineered and built around API 610 standards to consistently deliver results in the harshest production environments. A single pump can process flows up to 75,000 BWPD. The ONYX® Pump is highly reliable, making it ideally suited for critical operations and remote locations
