Recirc Filtration Skid

EFS's Recirc Skid is a fully-packaged, fully-automated, stand-alone filtration system for oilfield services and produced water management. It was developed primarily for use in coiled tubing operations as a solution to the excessive use of water in oil and gas well fill cleanouts. The Recirc Skid allows reuse of on-site produced water, thereby reducing the amount of fresh water needed for produced water applications and the hazards associated with transport and disposal of this water. Now, coiled tubing fluids may be returned downhole, thereby saving on otherwise single-use drilling fluids. The Recirc Skid promotes efficiency in fluids management of friction reducers and produced water.

A 2-stage filtration system filters particulate down to 5 µm and is used in conjunction with a settling basin or tank farm. The Recirc Skid continuously and automatically self-cleans internal filter elements and returns backwash water to a tank farm.

Units are customizable, scalable, and can be designed to meet your specific application requirements.
