Chemical Cleaning

Chemical cleaning efficiently removes residual oils, corrosion products, water hardness deposits, and other foulants from industrial process equipment. Passivation, a form of chemical cleaning, also reduces future fouling and corrosion. Before process equipment is placed into service, ISCO ’s pre-operational cleaning can remove mill scale, rust, and other foulants and passivate the system. Compared to mechanical cleaning methods, chemical cleaning can significantly reduce downtime. ISCO’s highly trained; experienced chemical cleaning crews are equipped with well-designed and –maintained equipment to ensure timely completion of conventional and non-reactive chemical cleaning projects in refineries, Petro-chemical plants and other industrial facilities. They are supported by a laboratory that helps identify effective cleaning methods that are safe for the plant’s equipment.

Hydro blasting and High Pressure Washing

ISCO water a large and diverse fleet of Hydro blasting equipment designed to safely and efficiently remove fouling and deposits that routinely build up in industrial process equipment. We use this equipment to clean deposits from exchangers, towers and vessels, lines and sewers, and contaminated surfaces. Additionally, water and aggregate are combined to Hydro-cut steel, concrete, and refractory. In many cases, automated tooling is combined with the Hydro blasting unit to enhance cleaning efficiency and labour productivity. In-house manufacturing facilities are available to design and develop new cleaning accessories. Our state-of-the-art Equipment includes:

  • Drain and sewer cleaning units with pressures up to 2,500 psi 10,000-psi units with volume capacities from 5 to 250 gpm
  • Proprietary equipment for environmentally safe, soft-abrasive cleaning.
  • 40,000-psi units

Vacuum Services

Vacuum services efficiently remove liquids and sludges from sumps, drains, ponds, and other containers for transport. We have skilled operators and well-maintained vacuum equipment to provide vacuum services safely, efficiently, on schedule. Our experienced, highly trained personnel provide vacuum services for a wide range of industries ISCO is equipped and permitted to handle both hazardous and non-hazardous materials.

Pre-commissioning Services

By applying our variety of industrial cleaning methods as appropriate to industrial process equipment before it is placed into service, ISCO is able to remove extraneous materials that may impede efficient startup and operation of the plant. This includes removing grease, oils, chemical residues, foulants, corrosion, and other materials that may adversely affect plant performance. In addition, chemical cleaning can be an efficient method for passivating the process equipment to reduce corrosion before the unit goes into service and fouling and corrosion once it is in service.
