Safe and environmental control of hazardous vapors prior to tank entry in cleaning operations.
What is it?
VaporScrub is a non-toxic, non-flammable, non-hazardous synthesized encapsulating chemistry. It semi-permanently binds hazardous vapors present in the headspace and creates a micro-emulsion that continues to assist in the further treatment of solids and hydrocarbons in the tank cleaning process.
Designed to meet the unique needs of today’s specialized tank cleaning operations, Vapor Scrub effectively makes tank entry safer and helps operators comply with new, strict environmental standards. VaporScrup is:
- Helps meet DEQ regulations for safe entry
How does it work?
Vapor Scrub suppresses and reduces volatile organic compounds (VOCs) prior to tank entry, while simultaneously decreasing lower explosive limits (LELs). VaporScrub then continues to control LELs and encapsulate VOCs long after entry, even as tank bottom solids are being agitated.
VaporScrub can also be formulated to control hydrogen sulfide (H 2S), converting H2S to a non-reactive compound of elemental sulfur. This process reduces hazardous off gasing, allowing for quicker, safe tank entry.
- Reduction of LELs and VOCs prior to the use of Fontus Fusion®
- Heavy-duty tank cleaning
- Degassing operations
- Expedites compliance with “SAFE ENTRY” regulations
- Assists in the cleaning of solid waste and helps meet the LEL transportation of solids requirements.
VaporScrub is safe for workers and the environment. Unlike most chemical treatments, VaporScrub efficiently controls the LELs caused by light hydrocarbon vaporization and does so without creating any additional hazardous by-products. It is nearly 100% biodegradable, phosphorous and boron free, and helps you comply with new environmental standards.
