Calcined and Green Delayed petcoke
For cleaning after calcined Petcoke we recommend to use Stromme Aquaclan HD, dilution ratio with fresh water 1:2 to 1:3.
The green delayed petcoke is more oily and challenging to remove and a dilution ratio with fresh water of 1:2 is recommend.
Both cargoes depends of the amount of residues to be removed, condition of cargo hold before loading and weather condition, we recommend to make small test areas to find the best chemical solution before cleaning.
First make a test on a small area with 1:3, 1:2 and 1:1 at different squares on to see what dilution ratio will have the most economical and efficient cleaning effect.
To have the most efficient cleaning effect, ensure to have adequate equipment for chemical application onboard. The Stromme Pump Spray Foam System for applying Stromme Aquaclean HD will give the most accurate and smooth layer. The strong pump and the lance supplying air and chemicals will easily reach up to the upper parts and ensure the best foaming effect.
For smaller vessels up do Handy Max size the Stromme Midi Spray System can also be used.
Applying Stromme Holdcoat FC in the cargo holds before loading petcoke will require less cleaning chemicals and make the cleaning easier.
