Decontamination of hydrocarbon and petrochemical equipment is essential for the removal of hazardous materials and gases, such as hydrogen sulfide, benzene, and other volatile materials. The formation of pyrophoric iron is also common within such systems. Reliable decontamination ensures the safety of the process system vessels, piping, as well as the personnel required for efficient maintenance work.

SureDcon™ capabilities:

SureDcon™ D is an effective agent for the decontamination of crude oil processing/refining systems that require cleaning by recirculation methods. The “fastbreak” nature of the chemistry allows for hydrocarbon recovery.

SureDcon™ H is our versatile decontamination chemistry that can be applied as a foaming agent, surface tension reducer, de-oiling of pipelines, solids-suspending agent and for preventing & breaking down emulsions.

SureDcon™ V can be applied to vapor phase decontamination to reduce benzene, contaminant and Total Explosive Limit (TEL) levels to zero. It also helps treat Iron Sulphide by solubilizing it in water to remove it from the system.  

SureDcon™ S acts as a scavenger for H2S and mercaptans for hydrocarbon streams with a proven track record in vapor phase decontamination.

SureDcon™ P non-ionic surfactant is the ideal choice for de-oiling, decommissioning or decontamination of pipelines.
