Nuova Saimar S.R.S.

Nuova Saimar S.r.l. progetta, realizza e vende l’S.R.S. (Sludge Recovery System), basato sul metodo C.O.W. (Crude Oil Washing).

Jet Washers description

This technological advanced rotating nozzle is the core of the S.R.S technology: installed on the tank roof in place of the supports guides, it crumbles the sludge and dissolve the hydrocarbons.

Jet Washers overview

Three combined factors allow hydrocarbon to get separated from sludge:

  • a Mechanical Action, given by the 5/6 bar oil jet of the JW hoses, that have a diameter of one inch;
  • a Chemical Action, given by the lower specific weight;
  • a Physical Action, given by the oil heating, that reduces viscosity

Jet Washers: how nozzles moves

New Jet Washers NS.700 combine axial with an orbital rotation.

The whole 45-105 degree orbital rotation is reached after 25 axial rotation, and the speed can be adjusted according to sludge features.

Results after S.R.S. operations

September 2011: this video was shot at the end of S.R.S. fluidification and before final manual cleaning phase.

Results after S.R.S. operations

July 2007: this video was shot after the complete S.R.S. fluidization operation. Inside the tank,  only the mud, sand, rust deposits, solid matter and sludge.
The S.R.S. recovers more than 95% of the hydrocarbon contained within the sludge, that is returned to the client together with the fresh oil used to fluidize it.
The subsequent hot-water washing leaves a residue inside the tank, that shall be disposed of, which average composition is 1/3 inert, 1/3 water, 1/3 solid hydrocarbon. No other system gives a better recovery, and a minor quantities of waste material.
Such result generates a significant cost saving that gets evident only by evaluating the entire cleaning project.

At the end of S.R.S. operations, the tank’s man-holes are opened, natural and forced ventilation is applied, and workers can safely enter the tank to take out the final residues.
This system eliminates Health and Safety risks run by the operators who enter the tank only when the tank internal atmosphere is neither flammable nor hazardous.

S.R.S. assembly and operations

Nuova Saimar S.r.l. designs, manufactures and sells the S.R.S. (Sludge Recovery System),  an automated, mobile and modular, non-manned oil tank cleaning system, based on the C.O.W. method.
A distinctive feature of S.R.S. is a closed-loop cleaning system, which heavily reduces the impact of tank the cleaning action on the environment, and provides a recovery of almost 100% of the original hydrocarbon.
This technology maximizes the safety and the cost effectiveness of tank cleaning process.

ATEX Robot JOX-I for inert removal

For a no-man entry inert removal, Nuova Saimar has designed the JOX-I, a remotely-controlled robot equipped with a lighting system and a camera.
The camera installed on the robot allows the operator to control and manage the work from the outside.
Combining S.R.S. and JOX-I, Nuova Saimar offers its clients the BEST AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES on the industrial reclamation market, in terms of reliability – safety – healthcare – eco-friendly.
