STYRENE REACTORS / JOHNSON SCREENS

PolarBlast cleans production equipment with dry ice. We have designed our equipment to clean quickly to minimize down time. Dry ice blasting utilizes compressed air to propel the dry ice pellets, much like a sandblaster uses air to propel sand. Dry ice pellets are completely non-abrasive and food grade safe. After cleaning, the pellets with sublimate (pass from a solid to a gas without becoming a liquid). Therefore, there is no cleaning media requiring containment or disposal. This process is ideal when sand or water blasting is detrimental to the surface or surroundings being cleaned, or is an expensive disposal concern.

For more than ten years, PolarBlast has been the solution for cleaning catalyst screens thoroughly, quickly, and safely. As you know, safely minimizing down time is the #1 issue in turnarounds and outages. PolarBlast is aware of this and has built our company from the ground up with this as our focus: to do our part to minimize your turnaround down time. All our personnel are full time experienced CO2 technicians, with years of experience in all aspects of industrial blast cleaning with CO2.

When the catalyst is dumped out of the reactor, the screens need to be cleaned to ensure minimum restriction. PolarBlast utilizes CO2 pellets to remove the build-up on the screens and the catalyst in the screen perforations. Our process will not abrade the surface of the screen, unlike abrasive blasting or wire scrubbing, therefore eliminating any chance of any foreign materials being left in the reactor to possibly contaminate your process.

PolarBlast personnel will enter the reactor under breathing air, blast clean the scallops or wire mesh screens, and centerpipes. When we are finished, you need only to vacuum out the catalyst dust. We generally start from the top and work down. We require inspection and approval of each reactor bed before we rig down to the next.

The only preparation needed is to remove the catalyst, have as much ventilation as possible, and install scaffolding in each reactor and have air movers on the manways, ports, and nozzles to achieve adequate ventilation; and provide the necessary low voltage lighting inside the reactor.
