Air blowing

Air blowing is used for the cleaning and drying of process systems and pipe work. Engineering specialists carry out a thorough review of your system following any construction activity to determine the optimum flow rate to achieve the desired cleanliness, and ensure an operational flow rate is exceeded by a factor of 150%. Once your system is pressurized, the system is immediately decompressed to the right atmosphere using either a rupture disk or a fast-action full-bore valve system through a noise-reducing receiver, which acts as a filter for any debris. The decompression process continues until the required cleanliness levels have been achieved, with follow-on air blowing undertaken as necessary to achieve the correct dryness.

Bespoke Enclosures

Understanding the need to address leak concerns on complex equipment geometries and configurations, we provide the local design, manufacture and installation of bespoke enclosures in accordance with ASME VII Div.2 and ASME PCC-2.

The ease and speed of use ensures that client deadlines and targets are achieved despite such problems occurring.

Ultrasonic bolt monitoring

In critical applications it’s sometimes necessary to ascertain a precise bolt load. Technicians combine proven tightening techniques with highly accurate ultrasonic bolt monitoring equipment to achieve a fully controlled tightening method. By measuring the actual elongation, we can eliminate variables such as temperature and friction to give you an accurate reading of bolt load, stress or percentage strain.

Cameras are easy to use and deploy, cause minimal disruption and capable of recording findings.


Catalyst handling

Taking Catalyst Change-outs off the critical path

At EnerMech, safety is integral to every aspect of our operations and we drive an incident free workplace. It is commonplace on LNG plants that some catalysts require unloading and loading under inert conditions to exclude air and avoid pyrophoric ignition and catalyst damage. Nitrogen is commonly used for this purpose with extreme risk to personnel.  We have found a better way and have pioneered a robotic catalyst unloading and loading tool called EnCat. EnCat negates the requirement for manual handling, high-risk confined space operations and inert breathing apparatus systems, mitigating the risk of engulfment, asphyxiation and manual handling injury and fatigue.

The EnCat technology comprises of two main parts: EnerVac, an automated unloading tool that removes catalyst from reactors via vacuum, without any entry into the vessel during unloading; and EnCat, an automated loading tool that loads catalyst directly from drums into the reactor, without entry during the loading activities. Both are programmable to avoid any obstacles within the vessels, such as temperature probes.

The EnCat solution:

  • Increases safety by eliminating the risks of asphyxiation and engulfment
  • Removes the need for inert entry
  • Minimises manual handling and fatigue
  • Eliminates CSE during unloading and loading
  • Reduces reliance on cranes
  • Decreases weather dependency for more predictable outcomes
  • Lowers catalyst attrition in comparison to traditional loading methods
  • Removes the need for decanting of catalyst from drums to Bulka Bags

Catalyst handling dehydration decontamination

Our patented decontamination process for dehydration media is used to remove all LELs, VOCs & H2S from the media and vessel prior to unloading, all while rendering the media completely deactivated. The process is quicker and generates minimal effluent when compared to current market practices of hot nitrogen stripping or water flooding. Reactors can be declared LEL free in as little as 12 hours, with permanent oxidisation of H2S and pyrophoric material. This process results in cost and time savings alongside greater flexibility for the transport and disposal/recycling of the benign spent (but clean) media.

On a recent shutdown, EnerMech’s multi-disciplined team delivered integrated services with a focus on safety and operational excellence.  Using EnCat, we reduced personnel on site significantly improving safety throughout.

ExKal- XPC Calcium Naphthenate Dissolver

Oil and gas operators in areas such as West Africa, the North Sea and the Americas are more frequently recognizing complex Calcium Naphthenate (CaN) deposits as a major flow assurance issue which can persist late into the life of a field development.

Until now, there has been no chemical capable of efficiently dissolving oilfield CaN deposits.

The CaN challenge derives from the complex mix of compounds found in crude oil. Some of these, such as Naphthenic acids, can cause problems during hydrocarbon production and processing operations. Naphthenic acids can precipitate as a solid when crude oil mixes with calcium-rich produced water to form solid CaN. Its density lies between that of water and crude oil and therefore is likely to accumulate in large volumes at the oil/water interface in separators, causing blockages.

CaN deposits form very quickly in vessels, pipework and equipment associated with oil production operations severely limiting production by forming significant amounts
of insoluble, sticky material.

To solve this issue, EnerMech in partnership with chemical decontamination experts Exkal, has developed EXKAL-XPC solution, the first dissolver to offer operators a more cost effective, efficient, safe and environmentally responsible way of dealing with CaN deposits.

EXKAL-XPC is a patented formulation containing a synergistic blend of organic solvents and carboxylic acids which can solubilize CaN and tolerate the presence of a significant volume of water that may be associated with the deposits.

The benefits of using EXKAL-XPC include:

A one-stage simple soak procedure, it can dissolve massive quantities of CaN deposits in 6-12 hours under static conditions and at ambient temperature.

It negates the need for additional personnel to be on board the vessel to carry out the physically demanding manual remediation, reducing costs and confined space entry risks in a hazardous environment

It returns Naphthenate to its liquid Naphthenic acid form by removing the calcium ion bound to each CaN molecule. The solution containing the dissolved Naphthenic acid, organic solvents, organic acid and Calcium Carboxylate is then safely pumped out of the system leaving it clean and totally CaN free.

Remedial work to allow operations to be reinstated has typically involved manual removal, which can be extremely hazardous, involving confined space entry risks. In addition, this time consuming process can result in lost production time which can run into millions of pounds. read more here
