Refinery Turnaround Project with Mobile Liquid Scrubbing Systems
A Refinery customer planned on using more than a dozen vacuum trucks removing light-end hydrocarbons during a major turnaround project. Previously, the refinery was changing their carbon vessels every few hours on average, resulting in frequent work stoppages, which accumulated to a lot of standby and downtime costs for the refinery. The high usage rate of carbon also added to mounting turnaround expenses. Furthermore, due to the nature of the volatile vapors, some of the carbon vessels were overheating, presenting a risk of combustion.
GEM deployed six GEMScrub mobile liquid scrubbers and stationed them in various areas around the active vacuum truck work areas. GEM project technicians performed vapor monitoring as required by permit, ensuring complete environmental compliance of the project.
Because the GEM liquid scrubbers required liquid and carbon change-outs once per week rather the their previous experience with carbon which was once every few hours, the refinery customer eliminated project downtime, drastically cut carbon expenditures, and removed any potential inhalation hazards.
