SYSTEM PURGING & START UP
System Purging & Start Up
Before the introduction of hydrocarbons into a new system, a purge to remove the atmospher4 oxygen to below the explosive level is generally required. In many cases, this is completed as part of a seamless start-up and introduction of the process fluids and gasses. In cases where the system pre-commissioning has been completed long before the planned start-up, a nitrogen purge and blanket are often completed in advance to mothball the system and prevent corrosion.
The purge gas is injected from the furthest upstream system point and blown forward ahead of the introduced hydrocarbons to prevent the mingling of oxygen with the hydrocarbons at any time.
JC International work with the customers re-commissioning and start-up teams to bride this interface and design the best solution to each project need.
