Repair to a permanent DEA tank with no production downtime

 

The Refinery’s Challenge: A refinery needed to repair one of its diethanolamine storage tanks without stopping its production.

The Baker Solution: An engineered bypass of the permanent tank to two Baker rental tanks fitted with EPDM gaskets. A small footprint meant the temporary tanks were able to be installed right next to the fixed storage tank, simplifying logistics and eliminating long hose runs.

Prior to switching on the bypass, the Baker tanks were purged with nitrogen to avoid any DEA reaction with oxygen. The refinery benefited from substantial cost savings as DEA production was continuous and all the diethanolamine was useable. Furthermore, the refinery gained significantly in production time due to the custom Baker solution.
