Nuova Saimar S.R.S.® operates 24/7, with no toxic emission and chemicals, completely safe and eco‐friendly.
The S.R.S.® Sludge Recovery System crushes the sludge and fluidize the hydrocarbons, by using the same product that has generated the sludge,
and recovering up to the 98% of the hydrocarbon contained.
It operates in a closed loop, granting the maximum personnel safety and environment protection.
Sludge is crashed by special rotating nozzles (called “Jet Washers”) installed on the tank roof, that direct high-pressure jets on all the tank internal surfaces.
While liquefying, hydrocarbon gets separated from sludge thanks to 3 combined actions: Mechanical: given by the 5/6 bars of the oil jet from the jet washers; Chemical: given by the lower specific weight; Physical: by heating the oil, viscosity is reduced.
Inert remaining in the tank bottom after S.R.S.® operations are usually made of 1/3 of water, 1/3 of sediments and 1/3 of hydrocarbon.
The high percentage of hydrocarbon recovery allow the operators to enter the tank without any health risk, as no trace of hydrogen sulphide remains.
``.. This job, carried out using the method called S.R.S.®, based on C.O.W. technology, guarantees environmental and safety standards in the reclamation of tanks, and allows the recovery and subsequent reuse by the refinery of a high percentage of hydrocarbons contained in the sludge.``
