Secondary Frac Pit Liners
Hydraulic Fracturing also known as hydrofracking or fracking, as they say is the new gold in the market, sometimes referred to as black gold. The advancement of hydrofracking technology has resulted in the increasing number of fracking sites all over the US, especially in the Marcellus Shale formation area. With this technological advancement comes a big controversy and great concern on its impact to the environment, most especially to the ground water.
Safety precaution is a top priority in the fracking industry. With the flowback being a mixture of oil, water and some sediment, on top of its chemical additives, environmental agencies and representatives are keeping a close eye on the frac pads or reservoirs where the flowback is being stored. A frac pad liner is a requirement and often comes with a secondary containment frac pad liner to make sure that no seepage of such contaminants will happen. Although most of the time, the primary frac pad containment liner will suffice, many fracking installers are required to use a secondary frac pad containment liner. The secondary frac pad containment liner is utilized to make sure that certain safety guidelines are being met, and will give you the assurance that no flowback will permeate into the ground.
Western Environmental Liner has been serving some of the biggest fracking turnkey installers in the industry, providing primary containment and secondary containment for frac pads. We offer great value and cost-effective materials for secondary containment of flowback in pit liners or reservoirs. Our Aqua series of woven coated reinforced polyethylene (RPE) is a great material for a secondary containment liner. RPE consists of high density polyethylene scrim coated with a low density polyethylene coating, making it durable and impermeable to some chemicals and contaminants contained in a flowback in a reasonable amount of time.
The aqua series has excellent tear resistance and good UV resistance. RPE comes in various thicknesses, from 12-mil to 30-mil and is very easy to heat weld together. Our multiple factories located in Tolleson, AZ, Romulus, NY and Great Bend, KS allow us to custom-fabricate your secondary containment pit liner into whatever size and shape you need.
