Antwerp, Belgium – June 22, 2015: Every few months Mourik, an international specialist in cleaning technologies for petrochemical sites, is asked to remove catalyst in a reactor of a large refinery in Antwerp (production capacity: 360.000 barrels per day). To cool down the reactor, they count on Atlas Copco Rental.
Atlas Copco Rental has lived up to its name of being a reliable, innovative company that always puts safety first. They came up with a completely new solution: using compressed air instead of nitrogen to cool down a reactor ... By injecting cool, dry, 100% oil-free compressed air we are able to create improved working conditions for our workmen. This new method allows us to respect health and safety regulations while entering a reactor. In addition, the allowed working times inside the reactor are significantly longer, resulting in faster transit times.
