Since 1996 Reinhart Hydrocleaning SA (RHC) has cleaned crude oil pipeline worldwide with wax consistency from soft to hard wax.
Pipeline distances up to 450 km (at the moment) can be successfully executed in one run prior the ILI (In Line Inspection) run.
Depending on different parameters of the oil pipeline e.g. oil velocity, reservoir age, wax consistency, previous ILI or clients’ in-house pigging campaigns with standard pigs, etc., the Reinhart Cleaning Tool (RCT) will be in-house designed and fabricated.
In accordance with the client, a cleaning procedure will be worked out prior starting the cleaning campaign.
This RHC procedure contains a specific number of runs with different RCT’s, each with its own characteristics in cleaning the pipeline on different stages, meaning from „gentle“ onwards to „effective“ cleaning.
The result of our cleaning method has led to successfully executed ILI runs during RHC campaigns.
