CLLEEN Water Treatment – General

Normally RO plants are very easy to operate and maintain, with simple water pumps, pipes, drive belts, what happens in the case that the CLLEEN unit breaks down? What do we do?

We have designed the CLLEEN units for minimal maintenance. The only ‘things’ that should really suffer failure is the pumps, which can be easily replaced, air blower (same), or air heater (same). We provide a parts list upon shipping.

For the proprietary parts (chamber internals, PLC, or power system), CLLEEN engineers will fly in to repair/replace.

CLLEEN maintenance is very easy and is less in cost and time to perform

 

How does the CLLEEN Water Treatment and Power Unit work?

CLLEEN Water Treatment and Power System uses a FILTERLESS technology. It is essentially a Multi Stage Flash Boil System of water treatment. CLLEEN’s system uses no filters. The CLLEEN Water Treatment and Power system simply evaporates seawater or wastewater down to pure H20, at a rate of 1,090m3/day (288,000 Gallons per day).

Is the initial installation included in the CLLEEN™ purchase price?

Yes, initial installation is included with CLLEEN™ purchases.

What is the warranty on the CLLEEN™ Units?

With all CLLEEN™ Units, all individual OEM warranties are given on the non-proprietary equipment upon shipping.  The pumps are 12 months, the heat exchangers, air compressors and other items are 5 years warranty from the individual manufacturers. The proprietary parts (flash chambers, chamber internals, PLC, power system) is ten years, guaranteed by Anthony Migyanka, Inc.

Can CLLEEN supply the complete water treatment equipment to produce 16,000 or 30,000m3 from sewage? How would the feed end and the discharge end water supply work? And the sludge?

Yes, CLLEEN can provide the correct solution and equipment for sewage treatment of whatever rate is required. The Flush’n’CLLEEN water treatment information describes the process here.

Does CLLEEN have a critical spare parts list, including estimated prices?

Yes, a CLLEEN™ critical spare parts list is delivered upon shipping.

Is there any use for the sludge following CLLEEN water treatment?

If it is sludge from drilling, mining, or other industrial operations, there are discussions in the USA about using it in cement mix in concrete production, because of the metals content.  It hasn’t been adopted yet, but CLLEEN Water and Power agrees with that assessment.

If it is sludge from sewerage, then yes, the electrocoagulation pre-treatment will kill the “bad” bacteria (E. Coli, fecal coliform, cryptosporidium, etc, and has been proven to kill same in independent laboratory tests). CLLEEN will then reintroduce the ammonia to the sludge to make a nitrogen-rich fertilizer that is considered “non-hazardous” and therefore can be used as fertilizer as it is considered lawn-safe, and garden-safe, i.e. you can put it on crops or grass for beneficial reuse.

Does CLLEEN have authorised service technicians in various countries?

Typically, CLLEEN’s customer has identified that their own operators will be operating the equipment.  CLLEEN will train those service technicians /operators in operations and maintenance, and if there is any operational issue of the proprietary parts,  CLLEEN will fly engineers on-site to repair/replace.  CLLEEN is also currently actively seeking partnerships with service companies in various countries.

For the treatment of sewerage water /used water can CLLEEN design a specific unit to meet our parameters?

Yes.  For treatment of sewerage water where it contains fecal solids, part of the CLLEEN solution  might be to add an electrocoagulation unit or other pre-treatment on the front end. This will kill the bacteria in the solids, and coagulate/collect them, to treat the water effluent in the CLLEEN equipment.

On a single CLLEEN unit how does the feed end and the discharge end water work? And the sludge?

A single CLLEEN unit needs to be piped with a 2 inch fitting. The discharge end is a 1 inch pipe that feeds to whatever brine drain/disposal solution you have. If you choose to add a crystallizer, the CLLEEN units are piped together, and the crystallizer pulls off the dry salts from the bottom of the chamber with a vacuum pump and an actuated valve intermittently to a hopper you provide to collect the dry salts.

Re the sludge – if the sludge is from sewage water, then it is pulled off the bottom of a vacuum clarifier.

 

Yes, additional power would be needed. How would they feed any other water treatment equipment? It is assumed there would be booster pumps from the septage or industrial water source. Those should be sufficient.

Can a CLLEEN water treatment unit be connected and feed directly into main water lines?

Yes, a CLLEEN water treatment unit be connected and feed directly into main water lines.  Some questions to be asked include:

What would the water be used for? Drinking? Industrial use?

If drinking, CLLEEN would need to add a UV disinfection unit, and potentially re-mineralisation to add back calcium and magnesium. (CLLEEN would liaise with you on this, as it varies from country to country).

If for grey water or industrial use, it’s ready to be used.

 

Is there a possibility of CLLEEN coming to Chile, Germany, Australia (etc) to demonstrate this water treatment technology and the entire process, what is required?

To effectively demonstrate the CLLEEN water treatment technology, please contact us and we would be pleased to have you fly in to view one of our water treatment operations, where available.

If your water treatment need is for sewerage, CLLEEN uses electrocoagulation from another vendor as part of the entire water treatment process. Doing a demonstration of all the tech can be quite difficult. However, CLLEEN does offer a ‘take or pay’ contract. Some countries call it ‘no cure, no pay’ which means we will install the equipment for the entire system at our expense, and you simply pay a monthly lease fee, with the option to purchase the equipment if you so choose, after 12 months.

This makes it a risk-free proposition for the customer, as all of the risk is on CLLEEN to perform the work and make the water to the spec we agree to.

Additionally, the customer is welcome to fly to CLLEEN’s Dallas, Texas, USA plant to view the hydro-testing of CLLEEN water treatment units before they ship to customers. CLLEEN can provide dates of upcoming units coming online so you can travel to the plant to see them operate at that time.

 

How does a Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment System Work?

Reverse Osmosis (RO) works on a filter system. The Reverse Osmosis membrane acts as a barrier to all dissolved salts while allowing water molecules to pass through the membrane.  Reverse Osmosis systems require filters, membranes, chemicals and high maintenance.

With the CLLEEN Water Treatment System, does one need to purchase many consumables on an ongoing basis as with an RO System?

NO – CLLEEN does NOT use filters or membranes, nor does it require pre-treatment chemicals etc. This represents a significant cost saving to any water treatment operation. Normal maintenance costs such as pump seal replacement as per pump manufacturer specifications does apply. This is a requirement for any desalination or wastewater treatment system.

How does the CLLEEN Water Treatment Unit compare with other Water Treatment Systems

Most water treatment (especially seawater desalination) use 6-25kWh/m3 of produced water. CLLEEN uses 5.18kWh/M3.

In simple terms, CLLEEN uses LESS energy to make PURE water. Reverse Osmosis membranes use between 3-7kWh/m3, but they also have high maintenance costs, use a lot of chemicals and filters require replacement frequently.

What is the CLLEEN Water Treatment system rate of water production.

Example: 1 CLLEEN water treatment unit (1 commercial sized skid) can produce 1,093m3 in a day (288,000 Gallons Per Day or 200 Gallons Per Minute). The system is scaleable to meet the needs of very large to smaller operations. Ie it is possible to treat 300,000m3 or 25 GPM. View specifications here.

How efficient is the CLLEEN Water Treatment Unit System at producing water?

The CLLEEN Water Treatment system provides a higher efficiency conversion rate (seawater or wastewater to pure water) of  up to 85% for CLLEEN versus 60% typically  for RO.

What applications can the CLLEEN Water Treatment Unit be used for?

The CLLEEN Water Treatment commercial skid can treat Oil and Gas frac water, abandoned and active mine discharge, bore water, desalinate seawater for coastal desalination, cruise ships, humanitarian aid and disaster relief.
For more information please view our Application Page

Does the CLLEEN water treatment system produce drinkable water?

Whether the water treatment is for desalination for a town’s water supply, treating mine wastewater, or other water treatment requirement, the water is evaporated from seawater or wastewater down to pure H20, at a rate of 1,090m3/day and this is all drinkable.

Can the CLLEEN Water Treatment Skid be used at any location?

Yes, the CLLEEN water treatment skid is tractor-trailer mounted so it can be driven to any location, remote or otherwise and used. Hence it’s applicability for remote areas, exploration sites, AMD site, humanitarian aid, disaster relief situations. Similarly the skids can be stationary units and flat to the ground.

The other major difference with the CLLEEN Mobile Water Treatment Unit is that it is self-powered. It uses rechargeable batteries, boost inverted and using a proprietary solar/atmospheric charger to keep them charged. Thus, NO outside power or fuel is required to operate the skid. The CLLEEN Water Treatment skid will run 24/7/365.

Can the CLLEEN Water Treatment Unit be used for desalination on ships?

Yes, there is a CLLEEN water desalination ‘half’ skid available for use on naval, cruise, aircraft carrier vessels. This water treatment skid produces 547m3/day of water or 144,000 Gallons Per Day.

Can large scale water desalination facilities operate with a CLLEEN Water Treatment system ?

Yes most definitely and for significantly reduced costs to currently used RO and MSF water desalination systems. Reduced costs include less for ‘set up’, consumables, maintenance, labor.
Please view Applications Page for examples of municipal sea water desalination plant comparisons. The Costs Page has Tampa Bay Florida water desalination facility comparisons.

What are the dimensions of the CLLEEN Water Treatment Industrial Unit?

2.4m high x 2.4 m wide x 12 m long
