Hold Cleaning Procedure for Cargo or Vessel Carrying Petcoke, Coal, Sulphur.

The hold cleaning process can be made easy by adopting these 3 steps-

First of all clean entire area by dry sweeping, this will not only helps to get cargo ready fast but also helps to reduce cleaner quantity requirements. Then apply chemical cleaner to reacts or neutralised residue content. Finally high pressure water wash will help to get optimum results.

Petroleum coke (’petcoke’) is a bulk by-product of oil refining, as it is clear its residue contains OIL which is strongly adhere with surfaces. Its cleaning is difficult with ordinary cleaner. Our regular
work with such residues given us opportunities to make its cleaning easy without scrubbing.

Now a days pet coke is in high demand to use as in form of fuel (e.g. for cement manufacture) or an input to other industrial applications (e.g. smelting). And It is commonly transported at sea in bulk
carriers As bulk cargoes, after discharge there remain residues in the holds and on deck which must be cleaned before new cargoes can be loaded.

For cleaning aſter pet coke, oily residues, sulphur, concentrates,specific ore residues, and other difficult cargoes, as well as lighter grease, oil etc RXSOL pet coke cleaner plays powerful role then other.

Our pet coke cleaner is principally based on emulsifiers with neutraliser, as pet coke residues contains heavy oil content and sulphur which is creating acidic effect on metal surfaces. And causing heavy corrosion on metal, and its ionic effect damaging entire painting layer

Petcoke Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), the classification of petroleum substances according to the EU dangerous goods directive and the GESAMP/EHS composite list of hazard profiles 2003/2004 all state that petcoke is not considered a hazard to the marine environment. It is also worth noting that, although petroleum coke is described as non-hazardous, there are potential human health effects
relating to the small particulate matter within the powder or granules as inhaled (i.e. airborne) dust.

In theory, the dirty wash water is either disposed of at sea or discharged for treatment in land-based reception facilities.
