This is the process of cleansing an object or substance to remove contaminants such as micro-organisms or hazardous materials, including chemicals, radioactive substances, and infectious diseases. The purpose of decontamination is to prevent the spread of micro-organisms and other noxious contaminants that may threaten the health of human beings or animals, or damage the the environment.
Refinery and Petrochemical Decontamination Services is a quicker, safer and more environmentally friendly method at hydrocarbon removal. Decontamination Services uses specialty emulsifiers and detergents during steam out or at the start of turnaround or maintenance shutdown to remove both light and heavy hydrocarbons. It provides for a quicker shutdown because the system will be clean, there will be low benzene levels and there will be Zero LELs so system can be quickly opened, easily inspected and repaired which can shorten a turnaround dramatically. It also allows the recovery of hydrocarbons that can be recycled back into the process for more cost savings.
