Professionally Engineered Chemical Clean Services
Clean critical piping systems, boilers and other plant equipment using engineered chemical solutions, applied through circulation loops using external flushing equipment. Our team uses low-risk chemical cleaning solutions, and our temporary circulation hoses are designed with the highest-quality materials available. B&W provides truly custom solutions, making the most of advanced, unique equipment designs from experienced engineers to deliver exceptional chemical cleaning services.
B&W Energy Services utilizes a full array of specialized chemical cleaning equipment.
Removal of organic material, oils and greases from boiler internals. Our boiler chemical cleaning process involves injection of chemistry into boiler water, then direct firing of the boiler for heat generation.
Removal of organic material, oils and greases from piping, process equipment, and steam generating equipment. Process typically involves external flushing equipment and heat source.
Single volume process utilized to remove organic material, oil and greases, and iron followed by a passivation of cleaned surfaces. Process typically involves external flushing equipment and heat source.
Single volume process utilized to remove organic material, oil and greases, iron, and mineral deposits followed by a passivation of cleaned surfaces. Process typically involves external flushing equipment and heat source.
Chemical solution is injected into a flow of steam which is directed throughout the system. Process is effective on large piping, vessels and towers, and greatly minimizes waste effluent.
B&W Energy has relied on our extensive experience and industry best practices to design, professionally engineer, and execute chemical clean services worldwide on some of the industry’s most complex projects. B&W utilizes a full array of specialized chemical cleaning equipment designed, and continuously improved upon, by our in-house engineering and design team. Safety and environmental considerations weigh heavily into the design of our equipment and offer our customers low-risk chemical cleaning solutions. Our chemical circulation hoses are constructed with the absolute best materials available and to the industry’s highest standards. Temporary pipe spools are constructed to ASME B31.3 code standards and all pipe spools are fabricated with ANSI B16.5 flanges, virtually eliminating the potential for leaks.
Chemical cleaning is a complex process requiring extensive amounts of engineering input to develop highly detailed and thorough procedures necessary to safely and effectively execute the cleaning service. B&W Energy Services will evaluate the entire system to be cleaned by utilizing all design input such as process and instrumentation diagrams, erection isometrics, vendor drawings and data sheets, metallurgy, and target contamination. All client, owner and vendor specifications and guidelines are reviewed and incorporated into the engineered procedure. Incompressible fluid modeling is then performed to ensure design flow rates and velocities will be achieved during the fluid circulation, and also ensures proper temporary equipment sizing and ratings.
While having the experience, trained technicians and specialized equipment are critical to carrying out industrial chemical cleaning services, our customers can also rely on B&W to manage additional third-party equipment and services associated with chemical cleaning. Waste disposal, waste holding tanks, waste profiling, temporary steam generators (boilers), licensed boiler operators and water demineralizers are all part of B&W’s turn-key chemical cleaning solutions.
