SEPOR offers an array of services that can be utilized in every phase of a tank cleaning project, from initial assessment to final disposal. Along with our cleaning processes, we offer related services such as dewatering, sludge processing, oil recovery, temporary storage, transportation, and disposal of residuals.
Before starting the activities, our decontamination specialists and all the project team members undergo bio-medical checks to ensure that they are fit for work in harsh conditions and to test the lead levels in their blood. Field TEL Analyzers are tested, calibrated and shipped together with chemical engineers, experts in handling the instrumentation and authorized to issue Lead Free/Gas Free certification. Appropriate environmental control systems are set up in the work areas and in areas that might be affected by the activities.
Our chemical engineers and/or environmental experts can check the organic lead pollution status or the status of other volatile compounds in other areas of the premises if deemed to be required by the client. Prior to commencing the activities the team leader debriefs the manager of the facility on the hazards and specific requirements, and safety meetings are regularly held during the works.
The plant decommissioning starts: plant piping and tanks are opened with cold cutting techniques, any liquid or residual sludge it is possible to pump out is removed using pneumatic pumps and collected in UN and ADR storage drums. Tanks are ventilated to remove any organic lead in the air, and explosive potential levels are checked. When acceptable levels have been reached operators enter the tanks and clean the surfaces to attain a gas-free status. After this, hot cutting is carried out and the tanks and rest of the plant are sectioned, pickled and flamed out until no organic lead is present.
