Oil & Gas Industry
Oilfield parts reclamation and remanufacturing operations must answer critical questions when considering industrial cleaning techniques and equipment because it is vital to their manufacturing effectiveness and capacity:
- Is it safe?
- Is it cost effective?
- Does it enhance quality and capacity?
- What is its "waste stream?"
Cleaning and reclaiming parts and equipment with abrasive manual techniques such as torches, brushes, sanders and drills is slow and expensive, and, in time, will result in damage to parts. These methods also increase the risk of injury to employees. Similarly, the use of chemical strippers and other toxic agents pose serious safety, health and environmental risks.
PCPC's Controlled Pyrolysis® Cleaning Furnace (Burn-Off Oven) is safe, easy to operate and virtually pollution-free. It safely removes oil, grease, sludge, epoxy, polymers, paint and other organic materials from oilfield parts and machinery, eliminating the use of chemical strippers and other toxic materials that may pose serious health and environmental problems.
Pyrolysis is the chemical decomposition of organic material through the action of heat, even though no flames ever touch the parts or enter the cleaning chamber. Organic materials on parts are vaporized into smoke leaving only small amounts of ash that is easily rinsed away with water. Smoke driven off during cleaning is then vented through an afterburner completely consuming any remaining pollutants, leaving only invisible, odorless and harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide to exhaust into the atmosphere.
