Toxic gases, hydrocarbons and pyrophoric iron can be chemically decontaminated during turnarounds or when old processing facilities are being dismantled – without the individual plant parts having to be removed first. It makes no difference whether the work involves separate pieces of equipment or interconnected systems
Facilities that are due to be inspected and maintained during turnarounds normally have to be steamed and ventilated over a long period of time to eliminate any hazardous pollutants and toxic hydrocarbons. This can have a major impact on the environment and requires plant parts to be dismantled and reinstalled – a very time-consuming task. What’s more, operatives can only enter the vessels in the plant wearing protective respiratory equipment to ensure they stay safe.
BUCHEN’s cost-effective and environmentally compatible decontamination process provides an alternative way to clean heat exchangers, vessels, columns, pipes, crude oil plants and other plant parts while operations remain online
We offer an effective, economical and – above all – safe and eco-friendly process as an alternative to the conventional steam process. Hydrocarbons, toxic gases, pyrophoric substances, hydrogen sulphides and oil sludge are flushed out of the plant and separated using liquid chemicals. Measurements of the relevant parameters are taken on site throughout the process to analyse and document the progress of the cleaning work.
Our mobile separator unit is the centrepiece of this state-of-the-art equipment. It flushes out the decontaminated solid materials from the plant’s systems and then separates them. This separator unit can be used on both individual pieces of equipment and interconnected systems.
Operatives do not need to enter a toxic environment
The decontamination time is significantly shorter
Energy and water consumption is lower
No need for mechanical work after the flushing process
Biodegradable chemicals, free of carcinogenic substances
This process can be used on separate pieces of equipment as well as on interconnected systems:
