FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enviro Voraxial Technology, Inc. (OTCQB:EVTN) announced today that the Company will exhibit its line of Voraxial® Separators at the upcoming Shale EnviroSafe Conference and Exhibition, part of the Clean Gulf Training and Exhibition on November 13-15 in New Orleans. EVTN will display its Submersible Voraxial® Separator at Booth #2006 in the Shale EnviroSafe corridor of the event, which is dubbed North America's Leading Oil Spill Prevention & Response Conference & Exhibition.
EVTN is increasing its presence in the produced water sector of the oil and gas exploration and production market. In the past year EVTN has also been pursuing the frac water market. The need to treat and separate oil and sand from the large amounts of wastewater generated from both markets is a significant issue for the operators. With the Voraxial® Separator's many unique benefits, including small footprint, low energy requirements, high separation efficiencies and ease of installation and operation, operators can achieve efficient separation in a very cost-effective manner. Since the Voraxial® doesn't require a pressure drop, it can be easily retrofitted into an existing system. In the past year, EVTN has shipped product to the oil & gas, frac and tar sands industry.
The Submersible Voraxial® 8000 represents a breakthrough in fluid and fluid/solid separation technology that enables efficient, high volume oil spill recovery. The Voraxial® 8000 processes up to seven (7) million gallons of oil and water per day which is equivalent to 5000 gallons (40 tons) per minute. To put the volume of the Voraxial® 8000 in perspective, this equipment processes about three times the total estimated volume of the oil spill flow rate from the Deep Water Horizon accident in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Voraxial® 8000 Separator can be installed onboard a vessel or submerged in the ocean for separation of large volumes of oil and water recovered from skimming. The Submersible Voraxial® design is the only oil-water separator that can operate in the water to treat oil slicks. Further, the Submersible Voraxial® can be lowered deep into the ocean to treat underwater oil spills and oil plumes. The compactness, light weight and low energy requirements of the Voraxial® enables the Voraxial® to be installed on new vessels or retrofitted on existing vessels for oil spill response. Similar to other auxiliary equipment on vessels such as firefighting hoses, the Voraxial's® small footprint allows it to be secured on supply vessels that currently serve offshore oil platforms, without interfering with the main function of the vessel. Finally, the compactness of the Voraxial® enables the proposed next generation oil spill response systems to be helicopter deployed or secured onboard oil platforms and tankers as well as in harbors and other sensitive locations.
About Enviro Voraxial Technology
Enviro Voraxial Technology, Inc. (OTCQB:EVTN) is a Fort Lauderdale, Florida based CleanTech company that developed and manufactures the Voraxial® Separator, a highly efficient technology for high volume, bulk separation of fluids such as oil and water.
The Voraxial® Separator is a unique, patented, in-line, continuous-flow separator capable of pumping and simultaneously separating up to three components, such as oil, water and sand. It's a mechanical separator that separates contaminants at high volumes with less space, energy, weight and cost than conventional equipment. The Voraxial® Separator benefits include: high volume/small footprint, no pressure drop requirement, two-way or three-way separation, ability to handle fluctuations in flow rate and oil concentration without any adjustments, high "G" force and less maintenance than conventional equipment. These benefits result in significant acquisition and operating cost savings to the customer. The Voraxial® may stand alone or serve to enhance the capabilities of other environmental or energy technologies.
The separation market encompasses a series of multi-billion dollar segments including: oil and gas exploration and production, refinery, tar sands, mining, oil spill, wastewater treatment, manufacturing, remediation and much more. EVTN was originally founded as a high precision aerospace manufacturer that built the gyro platforms for the Hubble space telescope as well as missile and satellite components. EVTN owns significant intellectual property surrounding the Voraxial®. For more information, please visit www.evtn.com.
