One thing about degasification that you have to be aware of is the fact that they exist in order to lower down the amount of combustible toxic fumes and vapors, on levels that are under the L.I.E or Lower Explosiveness Limit. In the event that the content of toxic fumes of the inner atmosphere of the tank is below the twenty percent of the Lower Explosiveness Limit, there is an appropriate degasification used for this. Because of the restlessness that we have regarding the past tank degasification method used, and because of the high risk of explosion since the atmospheric contamination which these procedures involve primarily because the fumes and vapors are poured in the air directly, authorities have developed a new method that limits the risks in more than ninety-five percent. According to history, there are two ways of degassing tanks, and they are as follow:
The first method of degassing tanks has something to do with sucking the vapors and fumes and driving them outside. However, if there is one concern regarding this method, that would be the fact that it is very dangerous when the vapors pass through the organs of the mobile of the sucking pumps, albeit the fact that the pumps are EEX. But there is nothing to worry about since professionals are trained to handle this kind of concern, leading them to discover a technique that will prevent the leakage. Another method of degassing tank consists of adding an entrance hose, introducing forced air, and driving through pipes into the tank using a turbine. The toxic fumes and vapors that come from the tanks were spilled into the atmosphere, and being much heavier than air, there is a high risk of explosion. But these are no longer the methods of degassing tanks as RAFIBRA designed and patented a new procedure of cleaning and degassing tanks.
The new procedure designed and patented by RAFIBRA utilizes a new degasification methodology in accordance with catalyzed condensation of COV’s. This capsulate the vapor molecules and precipitates them to the floor. Doing this will create a layer on the surface, preventing new volatile elements to form. By using this method, the time it takes for degassing tanks is reduced from three hours to twenty minutes. Not only that, there goes the fact as well that this new method reduces the danger of degassing tanks.
There are other advantages that come from using this new method of cleaning and degassing tanks like gaining access to the tanks. In addition to that, the collection of hydrocarbon sedimentation mud is created in safe conditions. The reason for this is due to the fact that the sensor-activated layer of the surface of the tank floor prevents the forming of volatile elements.
There are still so many things that you have to know when it comes to cleaning and degassing tanks, but we made sure that everything you read here is essential. You may continue to conduct research about and find out more.
