Michael Sofoulis from ESS Engineering Services and Supplies in Perth was praised for his professionalism in providing dust suppression solutions to longstanding Hydrate handling problems of a Local refinery.
The plant had previously experienced a long term fugitive material problem which was associated with the existing Conveyor Belt Cleaning System. The hydrate seed build up on the tank tops and structures below the conveyor as well as fouling the conveyor rollers. The result was excessive wear on the rollers and the conveyor belt.
With ESS support, the client successfully installed a Durt Tracker Doctor Blade with green high temp blades and Inline Premium with ABR blades. Both dust suppression units were air tensioned with air controllers in a stainless steel cabinet. Belt cleaning system that provided a dramatically reduced housekeeping time. The benefits from this dust suppression are not only financial but also include improved safety related to a cleaner work environment.
