What We Do
Some of the problems that may be attributed to sludge deposition in storage tanks include.
- Loss of sludge entrapped hydrocarbons.
- Reduced tank holding capacity.
- Erroneous measurements of crude quantity.
- High sediment concentration is found in the oil located in the bottom of the tank, this causes troubles in desalting operation.
- Sludge build up may interfere with the roof floating operation.
- Tank drain plug problems may occur.
- Increased transfer pump maintenance due to impeller erosion and blockage, may become a problem
- Corrosion cell often assemble in the sludge zone
ADVANTAGES OF THE PROCESS
