Remove up to 95% of Hydrocarbons in One Pass

A2 Offers New Hydrocarbon Filtration by Clerify™. Clerify™ is a surface modified filter media that chemically binds over three times its weight in hydrocarbons and has an affinity for other pollutants such as Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE), chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds, and many heavy metals.

Principal Applications
Initially, Clerify™ media was developed and used for oil spill response. However, continued testing of the media has proven a wide variety of practical uses for both liquid and vapor purification.
Clean-up of oil and gas well produced water prior to discharge.
Clean-up of tanker ballast and bilge water prior to discharge.
Clean-up of asphalt/concrete surface water runoff.
Clean-up of reusable industrial process vapor emissions.
Remediation of hydrocarbon contaminated groundwater.
Protection of instrumentation downstream of compressed systems.

Media Formats
Cartridges fit standard filter vessels
Custom cartridges available
Sheets of filter media also available

How It Works
Clerify™ media contains a modified cellulose that removes up to 95% of total hydrocarbons from water in a single pass. Dissolved oil, emulsions and dispersed droplets are adsorbed and retained by the filter media.

Clerify™ Versus Activated Carbon
Clerify™ does not require the extended retention time necessary for Granular Activated Carbon (GAC). Clerify™ media retains over eight times more hydrocarbon by weight, and achieves 95% hydrocarbon retention at flow rates greater than 30 times that required for GAC.

The combination of high efficiency hydrocarbon filtration at elevated flow rates indicate that Clerify™ is the optimal media for use in constrained spaces and in conditions with variable inlet concentration of variable process flow rates.

Handling and Disposal
Clerify™ is classified as non-hazardous. However, respiratory and eye protection is suggested while handling the raw material. Handling and disposal of used material is dependent upon the contaminants retained on the filter. Filters retaining only hydrocarbon contaminants can be collected, transported, and shredded for use as blending fuels. Filters retaining other RCRA listed contaminants are handled on a case by case basis and are disposed of at licensed facilities according to State and National regulations.
