The REMONDIS Group’s locations

BUCHEN-ICS delivers catalyst handling and reactor services in line with the latest standards.

Catalyst handling not only involves the use of standard technologies (such as industrial vacuum cleaners and material-friendly catalyst screening equipment) but also newly developed processes – making the work even safer and even more efficient

At home in a whole range of processing plants

We offer a full range of services for processing plants in both normal and nitrogen atmospheres. Not only do we unload, clean and reload different types of storage vessels (including setting up and removing any necessary installations), we also separate the fine material and inert ceramic balls from the catalyst. What’s more, we also process all the materials and parts that need replacing – such as the catalyst, molecular sieves, activated carbon and perlite – and handle all the maintenance work.

Conventional services for your plant

Loading & unloading reactors

Unloading

  • Emptying by dumping
  • Emptying using vacuum systems, with or without the use of nitrogen
  • Low levels of friction thanks to our material-friendly screening equipment

Loading

  • Dense loading (e.g. UOP, DENSICAT®, CALYDENS®, Linde, CatapacTM)
  • Sock loading
  • Multi-channel loading (tubular reactors)
  • Orifice loading (tubular reactors)
Screening & mechanical work

Screening

  • Removing the dust from the catalyst
  • Separating the fine material and inert ceramic balls from the catalyst
  • Dividing the balls up into different sizes
  • Dividing same-sized materials up according to their weight (density fractionation)

Mechanical work

  • Placing, removing and repairing reactor installations in normal and nitrogen atmospheres
  • Replacing e.g. center pipes, scallops, quench lines/boxes, distribution plates, support plates, screening baskets, cover plates, outlet collectors, condensers, catalyst transfer pipes and split rings
