"The SCROMBO" - Combination Vacuum and Scrubber Services
SAFER – CLEANER – SMARTER
The Scrombo is a combination vacuum truck/wash unit with an onboard, high volume gas scrubbing system that uses dry, non-toxic treatment medium to facilitate safer venting during all loading and unloading procedures in which product transfer creates toxic or odorous emissions.
Equipped with steamers and bowie pumps for large volume fluid transfers, the Scrombo unit provides the safest, most complete waste product (gas, solid and liquid) management solution on the market today.
In the plant or the field, H2S, LEL or odorous emissions, depending on our clients’ needs can be mitigated internally while performing traditional vacuum operations without the need for extra gas scrubbing equipment or manpower on site. It truly represents the future of clean vacuum truck operations.
DECOMMISSIONING & RECLAMATION
The Scrombo provides a comprehensive solution for decommissioning and reclamation projects. Equipped with high pressure wash units and approx. 3m3 of wash water, each unit can manage emissions while performing traditional combination vac-wash unit work. This ensures that toxic gases and odors are mitigated while cleaning tanks and vessels for decommissioning.
The Scrombo can provide solutions that can mitigate venting odors, LEL’s or H2S up to 10,000 ppm. For venting H2S content greater than 10,000 ppm, a more comprehensive solution can be designed.
Whether for routine pigging operations or major pipeline reconstruction projects, the Scombo is designed to reduce harmful emissions while providing solutions to the fluid handling challenges that are inherent pipeline maintenance. The Scrombo provides a convenient knock-out for fluids and potential solids (ie wax and sludge) while controlling the vapors that are displaced during maintenance operations.
WELLHEAD & PIPELINE BLEED DOWN
he Scombo provides a cost effective, very competitive solution to the challenges associated with bleeding down wellheads and pipelines. Sour and explosive gases can present issues when it is necessary to de-pressure these facilities. Often the gases are accompanied by liquids and even sometimes, in the case of pipeline bleed downs, wax or sludge.
Traditionally the only safe solutions have been to use P-tanks to manage the pressures and then flare the waste gases. The Scombo can cost effectively mitigate these gases while successfully dealing with potential liquids and/or solids that may occur during the bleed down.
The Scombo is designed to mitigate and control the harmful waste gases through onboard technology that traditionally facilities would be required to flare. In the situations where flaring is not logistically feasible, such as remote pigging headers or operations within sensitive communities, the Scrombo presents a gas management solution that does not required flaring.
PLANT/FIELD TURNAROUNDS & SHUTDOWNS
The Scrombo units are fully equipped to perform all the traditional tasks of combination vacuum trucks as well as mitigate toxic/odorous vapors onboard. This includes: Steaming and Washing - Tank & Vessel Cleaning - Facility Building Cleaning - Crawling & cleaning inside lines (hydro-jetting up to 3500 psi) - 9m3 Tank Capacity - Spill Cleanup Service Rig Operations - Drilling Rig Operations & Frac Operations.
ODOR CONTROL IN SENSITIVE COMMUNITIES
Most oil and gas companies strive to operate in their communities in as much harmony as possible with surrounding residents. One complaint from a resident can create issues and challenges that we would rather avoid if at all possible.
The Scrombo creates opportunities to perform vac truck work in sensitive communities while preventing odor complaints from residents by controlling the emissions that escape the vents of traditional vac trucks, helping to foster a greater sense of partnership between our clients and the communities in which they operate.
