The Dow Chemical T/A Group reached out to Blue Wolf to inquire about cleaning the 15,000 plus vertical heat exchanger tubes in place. Blue Wolf’s engineering team developed a robotic hands-free cleaning tool that was able to maximize cleaning quality and efficiency to meet the client’s limited timeline.
BW provided High Velocity Oil Flushing (HVOF) on Dresser Rand recip compressors, and pressure testing and high pressure flushing of the Tiger West Rail hydraulics.
To help a new system come online faster, the Blue Wolf team was asked to help de-bottleneck and pre-commission a new furnace. The team performed a chemical cleaning procedure and a continuous steam blow of the headers and users, helping to get the system through smooth startup.
Plant restart and upgrade, continuous steam blows, oil flushing, line blowing and chemical cleaning
Provided High Velocity Oil Flushing (HVOF) services on multiple compressors including (3) Kobelco Units, Plant 24 Aromax Compressor, K95 80 and Dresser Rand 8105-C Compressor.
Chemical plant commissioning project that provided High Velocity Oil Flushing (HVOF) on multiple units during maintenance turnarounds including – LDCU, wet gas compressor and coker jet cutter.
The Blue Wolf Performance team was contracted to perform a citric acid cleaning of the HRSG and additional services including: gas line air blow to the duct burners and CT oil flushing of the CT and Kobelco compressor. BW also performed steam blows to the header.
Blue Wolf’s Team was contracted by Inter Pipeline Company to utilize Aqua Milling® to clean an estimated 68,000 feet of assorted critical steam and process lines in leu of Chemical cleaning. By using the Aqua Milling® process thousands of gallons of chemical hazardous waste were eliminated from the project and the superior cleaning quality reduced the targeted steam blows by 70 percent.
The highly specialized Aqua Milling® process reduced the original chemical cleaning schedule from 9 months to 6 months. This reduction of 3 months in the cleaning schedule saved the Client an estimated 11,000-man hours and direct support equipment cost. This is a direct project savings of over $3 million with zero environmental impact and no loss time safety incidents.
Blue Wolf was contracted to clean Sasol’s Ethylene Cracker Quench Tower Boot and Settler utilizing the Blue Wolf’s PIO (Pipe in Operation) Online Cleaning Technology during the chemical cleaning rumbling process. Blue Wolf’s engineering team developed a cleaning system that eliminated high-risk man entry into the settler. Blue Wolf was able to remove approximately 220,000 pounds of coke material and significantly reduce the client’s outage time.
