Jim. This is how the product was used in Bolivia. Letís
discuss with Scott next week.
In a 1000 liter container, fire water was added to 500
liters. Subsequently, the immersion of the 8 bags containing
product, during 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, product activation was done by pressure on
the bags to remove all the absorbed liquid, this operation
is performed 40 times in each bag. Once the product
activation process was one, we proceed to remove all the
product inside the bags and add it directly to the
Then solution was allowed to rest for 5 hours prior to
Once the product was prepared, application was done on the
upper end of the mud pool (the pool has a total of 500 m3 of
mud, water and hydrocarbon), the method used to deliver the
product was by gravity without pressure. The product was
applied in 30 minutes.
Application of Organic Matter
Organic matter was applied (rice husk), two trucks full
(approximately 1 m3) to the pool of sludge. The organic
matter remained in the top of the pool because the sludge
was too viscous and contain solids .
Homogenization was done with a pneumatic pump. The product
applies was homogenized in the pool by moving hose 2 "in
diameter, at each point of the pool to promote mixing and
emulsification of product and the contaminants. This
process was performed for 5 hrs. for 5 days.
