Our group is fully equipped for various forms of treatment including:

  • Portable Flares
  • High Capacity 20,000 lb vapor bins
  • High Capacity explosion proof blowers and fans
  • High Capacity Heat Exchangers

One such project involved Clean Harbors providing the staffing and system equipment to treat the vapors from a bulk oil storage feed tank during cleaning/ turnaround activities. All material removed from the crude tank was placed in 76 frac tanks that also required vapor controls. The treatment system required Clean Harbors owned regenerative blowers ranging from 250 scfm to 10,000 scfm, heat exchangers and dual vapor phase carbon beds to accommodate the various flows. As many as 28 full systems were on line consisting of 28 blowers, 28 heat exchangers, and 56 carbon vessels with hourly monitoring for VOC, H 2 S, O 2 , and LEL. The data collected was reported on a daily basis to plant environmental staff for records keeping. Clean Harbors also coordinated all shipments of media and regeneration of spent media during this operation.

Clean Harbors personnel staffed the project with 15 treatment technicians per shift, 2 shifts of 12 hours each per day, over the course of 18 months Clean Harbors logged nearly 78,000 man hours all with no recordable incidents, which was a new record for any subcontractor working in the facility.
