explosives cleaning Applications
Prior to cleaning, storage tanks are vented to the atmosphere in order to reduce the internal gas content to a level below its lower explosion limit (LEL). This permits safe worker access. During venting, odors escape into the atmosphere creating a nuisance to nearby residents, businesses, and employees. Furthermore, storage tank cleaning results in production downtime that reduces plant profitability.

BioSolve Pinkwater eliminates fire and explosion hazard when sprayed directly onto a fuel/oil spill. Aggressive agitation with a course stream reduces volatilization and causes LEL readings to immediately decline, possibly registering “0.” Application of Pinkwater also facilitates roadway cleanup and elimination of hazardous oil sheen.

Macrotek has designed and supplied systems for many different applications in the food sector including sugar, starch, corn, sugar cane and rendering. A common challenge in many of these industries is the collection and treatment of explosive dust. Baghouses were the primary technology for particulate clean up, however, recent major incidents and explosions in these industries, particularly sugar handling, have resulted in a review and change in dust system collection design and strategy. Macrotek is an experienced leader in the development of these new technologies.

The consequences of an industrial dust explosion or fire are unthinkable - worker injury, loss of life, property damage, business interruption, and irreversible environmental harm. Few companies realize how many diverse and common industrial applications produce combustible particulates, or where in their facilities this catastrophic threat is settling. What is a combustible dust? “A combustible particulate solid that presents a fire or deflagration hazard when suspended in air or other oxidizing medium over a range of concentrations, regardless of particle size or shape” – NFPA 654? High Risk Applications Metalwork (aluminum, magnesium, or titanium and others) – cutting, grinding, or finishing Ceramics – raw product handling and enamel spray Chemicals – material handling, crushing, grinding, roasters, kilns, and coolers Coal mining – material handling, de-dusting, drying, air cleaning Food (flour, sugar, and others) – mixing, grinding, blending, bagging, and packaging Foundry – sand handling, tumbling mills, abrasive cleaning, and shakeout Pharmaceutical – mixing, grinding, blending, bagging, and packaging Rubber – mixing, grinding, talc dusting, de-dusting, and batch-out rolls Woodwork – woodworking machines, sanding, waste conveying?
