PICO CHEMICAL: Resin Dissolver
PICO Chemical Corp., Chicago Heights, IL, has announced the development of a resin dissolver for the quick and complete removal of stubborn styrene polymer build-up from reactor interiors. Previous cleaning efforts by a styrene resin manufacturer were described as a nightmarish “exercise in futility,” resulting in long periods of costly downtime and risky, laborious manual follow-up that left incomplete results. PS 1025 Reactor Cleaning Accelerator was employed, and made the entire reactor interior bare-metal clean from recent as well as aged resin accumulations in just a few short hours. This reusable, water-based material has performed many subsequent times without failure for complete and reliable styrene removal, providing additional benefits and accelerating return for the company. As a direct result of PS 1025, this customer has reported a measurable increase in product quality, process efficiencies and production capacity.
