In the production of most chemicals or petrochemicals, the
internal surface of Reactor
vessel tank cleaning must be cleaned on a regular basis. There is usually a build up of
contamination on the reactor walls and on the agitator blade surfaces. This
build up results in inefficiencies and also there is a risk of down stream
contamination due to debris falling off.
Likewise cleaning of
jackets of vessels is as much important as cleaning of tank reactor vessel. If a reactor jacket becomes fouled, a plant can face
serious consequences over time. Internal fouling of the jackets in vessels
reduces heat transfer efficiencies, increases reaction time and decreases yield
by as much as 15%. In addition, this loss of efficiency can lower a plant's
profitability due to the production of off-quality product, increased
maintenance expense and higher capital costs due to shorter equipment service
Reactor vessel tank cleaning result in faster batch runs, lower
plant operating costs and less down time due to downstream contamination. To
achieve these results, regular Tank
& vessels cleaningby
high pressure water jetting
Cleaning of reactor by high pressure jet systems improves heat transfer
efficiency, resulting in production and efficiency gains ultimately lowering a
plants total cost of operation.
Tanks, reactors and
totes are quickly cleaned with high
pressure water jets,
generally in a fraction of the time needed for manual or caustic cleaning.
Pressure Jet high pressure water
jet vessel & tank cleaning machines are friendly to the environment and personnel. Since high pressure water jet cleaning eliminates the need for anyone to
enter a tank, meeting the latest confined space standards is no problem at all.
- Small reaction forces.
Therefore, the technique can easily be mechanized and automatized.
- No gas, vapour or slag
- Minimum vibrations
- High efficiency
- Very careful removal of
coatings, dirt and contaminations
- High degree of industrial
- Exclusion of chemical agents
- No influencing of surface
structure or mechanical properties of the parts and materials treated.
Special tank & vessel cleaning accessories
- No entry systems
- Safety and effectiveness -
it's the PressureJet winning combination. We make several tools for
vessel and tank cleaning that reduce operator hazard by eliminating
personnel entry into the cleaning area. Now you can clean reactors,
separators, heat exchanger heads and any other process vessels without physical
entry. Plus these tools are more powerful than hand-held alternatives so
they do a better job of cleaning and removing deposits.
- Patented hollow shaft
travelling cable swivel tool
- This device slides on a
3/8" stretched cable (not supplied) and is moved along by jet
reaction or by using a pulling cable. The rotation is powered by an air
motor. It has a versatile 6-port head with varying angles including one
that allows the tool to travel by itself. Simply select the ports you
want to use and plug the others.
It is very much useful for direct fired furnaces, boilers
& re-boilers, super heaters & economizer sections, reformers,
precipitators & cokers
The Simple Boom is an inexpensive and versatile
positioner available as a rigid pipe or a flexible hose.
- 3-D Tank cleaning tool
- This tool is designed to
meet the most amounts of tank cleaning challenges possible. It can handle
pressures from 350-1500 bar by simply changing the manifold and inlet
coupling. There are three manifolds capable of handling flows from 60-350
lpm and can be easily interchanged.
- Nipple extensions
- We offer Extension Nipples,
Centralizer Cages and Positioning Booms, all designed to get better
results from your 3D cleaning tool. Extension Nipples recommended for
vessels over 12 ft. in diameter.
- Simple booms & telebooms
The Teleboom features a telescoping reach of up to 19 feet, plus it offers tilt
and rotation adjustments. The 3-D Tank cleaning tool can be adapted to fit
Teleboom. Easy to set up and to use, it comes in two different lengths.
