When time is money and efficiency is paramount, online cleaning can provide essential maintenance without the negative impact associated with some traditional cleaning methods.
OCT offers “shockwave solutions” using a patented cleaning system involving the safe, controlled and expert use of explosives to remove contamination and waste build-up within industrial installations. This can be achieved while the installation or plant continues to operate online.
THE BENEFITS OF ONLINE CLEANING
- INCREASED OPERATIONAL AVAILABILITY >95%
- GUARANTEED EXTENDED RUNNING PERIODS OF UP TO TWO YEARS
- REDUCTION IN UNPLANNED SHUTDOWNS
- INCREASED REVENUE FROM PLANT THROUGHPUT/OUTPUT
- OUTAGES OPTIMISED FROM PRE-SHUTDOWN CLEANS
INCREASED TURNOVER THROUGH REDUCED DOWNTIME
Explosive cleaning is the innovative and efficient solution to increase plant availability and turnover.
OCT provides an individually tailored cleaning programme for each customer that is specifically adapted to the needs and requirements of management.
OCT’s 24/7 stand-by service is available to assist in the event of unplanned or critical stop situations. This service is based on demand, expectation and mobilisation time frames.
OCT’s equipment and consumables can be housed on-site, ready for use.
When OCT cleans an installation prior to a shutdown, there is a reduction in offline manual cleaning, thus saving the customer time and money.
In addition to the enhanced safety features of this cleaning method, the removal of ash during the cool-down phase is also beneficial, as it is not treated as chemical or hazardous waste.
OCT’s online cleaning service is provided to more than 60% of all incinerating and power plants in Europe. Depending on the size of the plant, some of OCT customers achieve increased turnover ranging from £250.000 up to £180 million per annum. The majority of this additional turnover is a result of higher availability and increased performance while the installation is operational.
OCT WILL INCREASE EFFICIENCY THROUGH PLANT-OPTIMISATION
OCT commit to the supply of a product/service, which in every way will satisfy our customer needs via:
- Realistic cost and performance
- Positive outcomes that fulfil expectations
- A strong commitment to safety and security
OCT performs safety cleans, whereby prior to the boiler shutdown, OCT cleans the dangerous clinker and build-up in order to minimise risk. In the past, the use of traditional cleaning methods has resulted in several accidents.
Using OCT for safety cleans, these traumatic incidents/accidents can be avoided and hence the installations can be safely entered.
Higher emissions and additional (indirect) costs primarily occur during plant shutdown / start up.
Longer operational availability will reduce the number of shutdowns and is therefore more beneficial from an environmental perspective.
Plant shutdowns lead to increased stress on the installation, primarily caused by the difference in temperature going down from 1000°C to ambient temperatures. This may result in undesirable thermo-shock, which can lead to negative financial and material effects, e.g. refractory damage within the furnace.
