15+ Years Service in Cleaning Internal Hydrocarbon Deposits from Steam Cracker

A major German refinery needed a reliable solution for washdown of its steam cracker; a very critical process on the refinery. The cleaning liquid was a mixture of hot water and decoking chemicals.

They found the solution in a Hydra-Cell® pump which has been successfully running for over 15 years.
