Stockage maintenance and cleaning
Keeping stocks of petrochemical products well maintained, in addition to ensuring their adequate working life, is important if the entire volume available is to be used to the full: SOL offers a service of cleaning and reclamation of these tanks based on modern technologies such as COW (Crude Oil Washing), which can recover the volume of stocks and also make it possible to use the dregs in production for example, COW is a technological solution that offers two main, fundamental advantages: personnel operate in safety outside the tank without having to enter until the final inspection (unlike traditional methods where personnel operate with respirators inside the tank) and the hydrocarbon fraction of the dregs is recovered almost completely, often more than 95%. During operations an inert atmosphere is maintained inside the tank using gaseous nitrogen: this significantly increases the safety of the system.
The main advantages of this advanced solution that SOL offers its customers are:
- an automatic process without the need for personnel to enter the tank;
- almost total recovery of the hydrocarbon fraction;
- an inert atmosphere thanks to the use of SOL nitrogen, to ensure conditions of safety;
- the limited duration of the operation.
