Cleaning up after traditional hydroblasting.

Maintenance Program

One Middle East customer was dealing with a particularly sticky polyethylene plugging up their intercooler equipment. After cleaning their lines once with a traditional hydroblaster process, they called Hydrokinetics for a high-end cleaning of their critical-path equipment in order to meet higher specifications. They were surprised by what hydroblasting had left behind.

In addition to safely and effectively removing all foulant—down to the metal—we were able to reduce their total outage from 28 to 14 days, which gave them back two full weeks of production. And time to seriously re-evaluate their cleaning strategy. Today, we are a routine part of their maintenance program.
