This book contains a comprehensive review of current industrial cleaning techniques including those using traditional low, medium, and high pressure water, solvents, chemical compounds and foam, wet and soluble abrasives, `pigging devices', biotechnology processes and the latest computerized `state-of-the-art' in-line automatic techniques. Emphasis is firmly placed on the practical aspects of designing, manufacturing, and operating cleaning equipment and systems. Industrial cleaning applications include: municipal drains and sewers, road tanker and container depots, chemical and petrochemical plants, offshore oil/gas platforms, paper mills, paint and similar manufacturing processes, IBC and drum cleaning systems, pharmaceutical, biotech and cosmetic plants, food processing, marine, dry-dock installations and nuclear plant decontamination projects, together with a selection of case studies relating to typical industrial cleaning problems and injuries associated with high pressure water jetting activities. In addition to actual techniques, the book examines the increasing effect of international health, safety, training, and environmental legislation on cleaning activities, with particular reference to European directives, the U.S.A., and regulations controlling cleaning standards, procedures, and plant designs in the pharmaceutical and food processing industries. Useful information sources are listed throughout the book.
