KHT reactor skim at TOTAL - February 2015

Mourik UK Ltd were recently requested to undertake a skim of a reactor by their client TOTAL Lindsey Oil Refinery, as part of their regular maintenance.

The work involved removing approximately 20 drums of catalyst by vacuum under fully inert conditions.  In order to undertake this Mourik provided a team of skilled Reactor Entry Technicians and accompanying ground support personnel, along with our high powered Wieland vacuum unit specifically designed for catalyst handling activities.

Inert entry, utilising a purpose built Life Support Unit was required with the removal and reload completed very successfully.  The small change out was a precursor to TOTAL's turnaround in March 2015 where Mourik UK will be undertaking the major catalyst handling activities.
