How to Maximise efficiency with industrial cleaning
Unleash the potential of
Say goodbye to clogged compressors
Industrial cleaning plays a crucial role in maintaining the functionality and performance of equipment, as demonstrated by the experience of Centurion. The company faced significant challenges in removing carbon and rust from their spark arrestors used offshore, which may have resulted in adverse consequences. If not properly cleaned, the accumulation of rust and carbon hindered the compressors’ ability to operate optimally, impacting their overall efficiency and lead to elevated temperatures of up to 120°C. Underestimating the importance of industrial cleaning can have serious consequences on equipment performance and functionality. Additionally, it is worth highlighting that Centurion has experienced a significant reduction in man-hour cost due to the decreased need for washing interceptors. With the implementation of more efficient cleaning methods, the company now spends less time and resources on this task.
Industrial cleaning solutions provide increased functionality on compressor and power generation offshore
We have had a successful collaboration with Neil Harper, the Global Asset Manager at Centurion Power & Equipment (UK). Neil Harper has expressed great satisfaction with the efficiency and effectiveness of our partnership with DST. By using DST-DEGREEZ/9E and DST-DEBURR/T3, Centurion has achieved remarkable results in removing rust and carbon, with an impressive amount of 8 kg per asset. Considering they have 180 assets in need of cleaning; this translates to significant results. Hence, the temperature in their compressors has been reduced from 120°C to a much lower 50°C, thanks to the effectiveness of DST products. This has also allowed their spark arrestors to operate for longer. This achievement has led to increased customer satisfaction, as Neil Harper stated, “We have received excellent service from DST, who are always readily available and willing to go the extra mile alongside the customer.”
