Halliburton’s Ultrasonic System is an innovative cleaning technology used for enhanced cleaning of hydrocarbon processing equipment and tools that are contaminated or corroded. Employing a combination of ultrasonic technology, chemicals and heat provide superior results while consuming less energy and water and significantly reducing waste. The ultrasonic cleaning unit is mobile and can be easily assembled in a refinery plant wash bay or onboard an offshore installation with fully automated system functions; chemical fluid levels, skimming, filtration, heating and sonic-wave generation. Ultrasonic Transducers strategically mounted within the cleaning bath produce cyclic waves of rarefaction-compression throughout the liquid. These waves create microscopic cavitation bubbles that form and implode on all immersed equipment, creating small and forceful micro jets of liquid that remove the contaminant from all exposed surfaces regardless of design complexity. The versatility of the ultrasonic system allows multiple pieces of equipment to be cleaned simultaneously and is designed to insure no erosion or damage affects the equipment structure.
