Best Practices in Pre-Job Determinations for Decontamination of Refinery and Pipeline Equipment

What is the best way to determine when, how, and if you should clean your equipment? Should there be a standardized method for pre-job determination? What is the best way to clean your equipment? These are all questions that have been brought up within STG 06: Chemical and Mechanical Cleaning for the past several years, and the time has come to address the issue. Here we will begin the discussion as to the development and introduction of a new task group charged with developing a standard for best practice in prejob deposit characterization. The scope of the group will focus on refinery and pipeline pre-job determination, deposit characterization, and chemical/mechanical cleaning recommendations. The group will begin with the intention of generating a state-of-the-art report, with the possibility of the future development of industry standards for deposit characterization and treatment. The purpose of this forum is to brainstorm ideas on what “best practice” means for the industry. We encourage other NACE members from various STGs to join us and provide their input regarding the topic.
