The Oil & Gas industry is tough on equipment and expects high performance results. When material needs to be transferred the job must be done efficiently and in most cases done in a harsh environment. The Oil & Gas sector spans the globe, requiring industrial equipment to be versatile and able to perform optimally in all conditions and completing an endless variety of tasks. There are some materials that are a consistent issue for petrochemical companies, they are ever present and can be brutal on machinery.
Wastewater, sludges and slimes are abundant in this industry. The “leftovers” from the wide range of processes carried out on an oil or gas rig. These liquids and semi-liquids are heavy, thick and abrasive, often times corrosive. The IVAC PV500 industrial vacuum system was designed to complete heavy duty material handling jobs quickly and safely with little to no maintenance. Tailings are no problem for IVAC’s powerful systems and because our units are portable and can be configured to any task we feel confident about taking on the most difficult of challenges. Transfer your waste material 30m vertically from tank or shaft bottoms, while horizontal transfers can be done for kilometers!!
Sand on a rig site is ever present in all types of forms. Sands can build up around a work site, either from wind and natural processes or as debris from extraction processes. Wet or dry, sand is always hard on equipment due to its abrasiveness. Frac sand or Proppant is an engineered material used in the Oil & Gas industry. Like conventional sand, Proppant does not tend to flow well and is abrasive. The PV500 has been tested in the lab and out in the field by sands of all varieties. These units consistently impress with their performance on strenuous material handling projects.
Keep your well site running smoothly with the help of a performance proven industrial vacuum system. Let breakdowns and production lulls be a thing of the past by maximizing your Oil & Gas project with IVAC.
