Guide to Ultrafiltration Systems and the Processes Behind Them

Water is our most important resource. With so many industries consuming high volumes of water or producing highly toxic sewage, ultrafiltration is more important than ever. Used in wastewater treatment, ultrafiltration (UF) mechanisms are utilized to reclaim and reuse water that holds practically no physical solids. The following is a guide to ultrafiltration systems, what … Continued

How Enhanced Oil Recovery Benefits the Economy and the Job Market

Enhanced oil recovery (or EOR) – also known as tertiary recovery – is the extraction of crude oil from an oil field that cannot otherwise be extracted, and the process can extract 30 to 60-percent or more of a reservoir’s oil compared to 20 to 40-percent when utilizing primary and secondary recovery methods. According to … Continued
