|20140290957||Reactor Tank - Disclosed is an improved water treatment cavitation reactor cone. The tank operates on a continuous flow of fluids which are subjected to ultrasonic waves in combination with a high level of injected ozone. The treatment tank includes a tangential inlet that induces a rotating flow into the tank thereby increasing the mixing of the ozone within the effluent. The effluent is further treated with DC current. The treatment tank provides a cost efficient and environmentally friendly process and apparatus for cleaning and recycling fluids as contaminated as frac water, used to stimulate gas production from shale formations, as well as other types of fluids having various levels of contaminants such as aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and suspended solids. The calcium carbonate scaling tendency is reduced to an acceptable level without the use of acids, ion exchange materials, or anti scaling chemicals which is of economical and environmental significance and benefit.||10-02-2014|
|20140202942||Manual hydrodynamic cavitation water treatment device - A manually operated hydrodynamic cavitation water device formed from a cylindrical bottle having an internal chamber constructed and arranged to cause hydrodynamic cavitation of water placed within the bottle upon vigorous shaking. The bottle includes a series of plates positioned within the bottle having a plurality of bi-directional orifices designed to control the velocity of water with each said orifice. Each plate further includes a edge shape to induce shearing, which together with the plate orifices are constructed and arranged to create micro bubbles to create OH-radicals.||07-24-2014|
|20140083998||Transportable storage tank - The instant invention is an environmentally friendly transportable storage tank having a particular use within the oil/gas industry for the temporary holding of produced water or water used in fracing. The storage tank has a lower tank that houses an upper tank for transport, the upper tank can be raised vertically at a job site by use of corner mounted pneumatic jacks. The upper and lower tanks are temporarily sealed together expanding the capacity of the lower tank without increasing the footprint of the storage vessel. The storage tank can be transported along road ways when the upper tank is retracted into the lower tank.||03-27-2014|
|20140048466||Apparatus for treating Lake Okeechobee water - Disclosed is a water treatment apparatus for treating Lake Okeechobee water. The treatment apparatus operates on a continuous flow of water which is subjected to hydrodynamic waves, acoustic ultrasonic waves in combination with injected ozone and electrolysis. The treatment system provides a cost efficient and environmentally friendly process for cleaning contaminated water that is directed into estuaries, lagoons, intracoastal waterway, everglades, and the ocean. Treatment includes addressing various levels of contaminants such as aerobic bacteria, often called a green slime that produces a bio-film. The apparatus can be mounted on a vessel to permit targeting of algae blooms.||02-20-2014|
|20130248456||Waste treatment process for coal gasification fly ash - Disclosed is an improved water treatment process that operates on a continuous flow of fluids that are subjected to hydrodynamic waves, acoustic ultrasonic waves in combination with injected ozone and electro chemical treatment. The treatment system provides a cost efficient and environmentally friendly process and apparatus for cleaning and recycling fluids as contaminated as coal slurry, as well as other types of fluids having various levels of contaminants such as aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and suspended solids. The volatile organic compounds are reduced to an acceptable level without the use of acids, ion exchange materials, or anti scaling chemicals which is of economical and environmental significance and benefit.||09-26-2013|
|20130088935||Hydrodynamic cavitation device - An advanced hydrodynamic cavitation device formed from a cylindrical tube having a flow through chamber. The chamber has a series of stages with each stage formed from at least three plates spaced annularly and extending radially inward at an oblique angle with respect to the longitudinal axis of the flow through chamber. Each plate has shear inducing side edges and a plurality of orifices with shear inducing edges. The orifices are arranged perpendicular to the plates and shaped to control the velocity of the fluid. An unrestricted passageway exists along the central axis of the flow through chamber to provide a constant flow for continuous flushing of suspended solids to prevent clogging. Additionally, the passageway will facilitate the insertion of a pressure cleaning tube without requiring that the device be disassembled.||04-11-2013|
