Special pumping solutions - Dry

Case Study #1:

Catalytic pumping (dangerous material) using a Venturic system due to a dangerous malfunction at the plant.


While renovating a Fluid catalytic cracking plant a problem emerged during the clearing and cleaning process. The tower was full of a catalyst which prevented the work being performed.  The material had to be removed quickly from the 30m tower without human intervention in order to allow quick cleaning and return to immediate activity.

Arrow’s Solution:

Our company designed a unique Venturic system of suction lines using air compressors, designated pumping, and tanks.  The system was accessible to all tower areas for pumping various size solids.  The system was built to operate in a safe manner, and it saved time and money as the plant was back in operation in a very short period of time.
