According to a company brochure, FQES' ROVER is "a safe, reliable and rugged system designed to con vert produced and flowback water to clean saltwater for reuse during hydraulic fracturing." This flexible system that offers total suspended solids, iron and hydrocarbon removal is designed to result in pH neu tral clean brine for fracture supply. The company's NOMAD system converts waste water into surface discharge quality freshwater, and the MAVREX is a bacteria disinfection system that provides on the fly active monitoring and dosing of chlorine dioxide. The MAVREX monitors pre and post treatment water in real time and self adjusts as water conditions change.
