Specialists at the very heart of your plant
Catalyst reactors deployed by the chemical and petrochemical industries are used to refine products, reduce environmental pollution and are the centrepiece of every industrial plant. It is, therefore, essential that they are serviced and cleaned and that the catalyst material is replaced at regular intervals to ensure that the industrial facilities run smoothly and effectively.
Catalyst handling & reactor services
Reactor services cover all the tasks required for catalyst-relevant processing plants (such as hydrocrackers, FCC reactors and UOP CCR reformers) and range from preparing the plant, to handling the catalyst – including screening, mechanical work and unloading and loading systems – all the way through to regenerating, passivating or recycling the catalyst material.
Silo cleaning work
The BUCHEN experts use a variety of mobile silo cleaning systems to remove all kinds of deposits from silos up to 45 metres deep – without operatives having to enter the silo, thus preventing the material from becoming contaminated.
Chemical decontamination work is carried out during turnarounds as well as for projects involving the demolition of old processing facilities. It can be performed without having to dismantle individual plant parts first and can be used to clean separate pieces of equipment as well as interconnected systems.
