TerraChem Chemistry
All TerraChem formulations are designed to be compatible with all metallurgies and can operate across a wide range of temperatures. Organically based and fully biodegradable, TerraChem's products permit full hydrocarbon recovery on-site with resulting waste waters suitable for most API separators, all of which virtually eliminates hazardous waste generation and its subsequent treatment.

TC6000 - Olefins

TC 6000 is an exceptional decontamination and degassing product for process equipments in petrochemical plants. TC –6000 effectively transports out not only heavy tar and cyclic hydrocarbons but also light hydrocarbons such as benzene found in the petrochemical process vessels such as Quench Settler, Quench Tower and associated piping and heat exchangers.

The surfactants in TC-6000 form a highly stable water external emulsion, which facilitates the removal of heavy tar from the petrochemical plant process vessels. TC-6000 is environmentally friendly and biodegradable.

The flexibility and economics of petrochemical plant can be greatly improved by the use of TC 6000. TC- 6000 typically reduces Quench Settler and Quench Tower decontamination time by 80.0% compared to manual decontamination method. Typical use concentration of TC 6000 for decontamination is 1 to 2% in water. This aqueous solution of TC 6000 is circulated in a closed loop through the plant process vessels at 180o to 190o F for 8 to 12 hours. After 8-12 hours ofcirculation the solution is pumped to a pre-determined site, the process vessels are then rinsed with fresh water. Upon opening, the process vessels are typically found to be in considerably improved condition with zero LEL and Benzene approaching zero ppm.
TC6000 Olefins The solids in both Quench Settler and Quench Tower are reduced significantly compared to manual decontamination method. For further details contact Terra Chem.
