Air Blowing/Purging and Drying

For Ocean Team, a successful flushing operation means that system components and piping meet acceptance criteria in a minimum of time with a minimum of effort. To remove debris resulting from fabrication, storage and installation, sites should subject the system to air purging/blowing during the installation process.

Piping should be subjected to heavy air purging/blowing during initial fit-up and prior to final installation, or prior to oil flushing operations. Air is usually supplied by temporary high-capacity air compressors because the permanent air compressors do not normally have sufficient capacity. Ocean Team is able to provide this service in close cooperation with P.S.E. International (Pipeline Services & Engineering International).

Together with P.S.E. International, Ocean Team can design, supply and service air purging/blowing and drying equipment for the pre-cleaning and drying of all kinds of pipes in the oil and gas industries. Our method of air purging/blowing and drying is well acknowledged and has been used for many kilometres of pipeline and processing systems with diameters from DN50 to DN1400 all over the world.
