Catalyst Handling Services  EnCat Colour

 

From shutdowns to turnarounds and maintenance EnerMech are the experts in providing blinds-to-blinds service solutions that reduce downtime and maintenance costs. We deliver a full service for our clients, providing highly trained, multi-skilled people and specialised equipment in order to execute projects safely and to the highest standard.
Our services include:

In addition to our already extensive suite of Integrated Services, our Catalyst Handling solution extends our capability by delivering the following:

  • Chemical catalyst decontamination
  • EnerVac Automated catalyst unloading
  • CAROL unloading, in partnership with Worley
  • EnCat Automated catalyst loading
  • Inert services
  • Reactor cooling
  • Unloading and loading catalyst in inert or normal atmospheres
  • Catalyst storage and containment
  • Inspection and assessments
  • Shutdown planning and execution
  • Safety management

EnerMech places high value in innovative and smart solutions for our clients and have developed an automated catalyst handling solution, EnCat.
EnCat has revolutionised the way Catalyst change-outs are completed within single bed catalyst reactors, including dehydrators and mercury recovery units.

The EnCat solution comprises of two main parts;
EnerVac our automated unloading tool which removes catalyst from reactors via vacuum, without any entry into the vessel during unloading and;
EnCat our automated loading tool which 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 provides the following benefits:

INCREASED SAFETY

Eliminates the risks of asphyxiation and engulfment

REMOVAL OF INERT ENTRY

Removes the need for inert entry

MINIMISED MANUAL HANDLING

Greatly reduces manual handling and fatigue

ELIMINATION OF CSE

Eliminates CSE during unloading and loading

REDUCED CRANE ACTIVITY

Reduces reliance on cranes

DECREASED WEATHER DEPENDENCY

More predictable outcomes through immunity to adverse weather events

LOWER CATALYST ATTRITION

Lowers catalyst attrition in comparison to traditional methods

NO REQUIREMENT FOR DECANTING

Removes the need for decanting of catalyst from drums to Bulka Bags

We are continually pushing the boundaries to further increase efficiencies for our customers and as example of this, our team at EnerMech have developed and patented a vapour phase decontamination process for dehydration media. Which removes all LELs, VOCs & oxidises H2S from the media and vessel prior to unloading, all whilst 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. Not only does this provide immediate schedule, safety and cost benefits, once the media is removed there is greater flexibility for transport and disposal/recycling the benign spent (but clean) media.

Safety is at the forefront of everything we do at EnerMech and we believe the LNG and Refining industry and other sectors which depend on catalysts are ready to embrace change and to minimise risk for their staff and their businesses.
