    Hydrocarbon/Chemical ProcessingThe clear advantage in water treatment.

    Maintaining system efficiency, plant integrity, and regulatory compliance has always been difficult. Now, with the growing need to conserve and reuse water, operators of chemical and hydrocarbon processing plants have a growing problem: more contaminants entering cooling and other systems.

    Buckman’s new-generation green technologies can help you better manage corrosion and fouling, so you can safely increase water recycling in your plant. Highly trained field service personnel, automated monitoring and control systems, and an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement and cost reduction are hallmarks of our state-of-the-art treatment programs. For example, our new Buckman Process Counselor® and other control systems provides real time mass and energy balance information, expressed in financial terms, so you can make the informed decisions necessary to save money and increase productivity.

    If you need to drive sustainability, regulatory compliance, and system reliability, talk to a Buckman representative. You can depend on us for solutions in all these areas:

    • Boiler, steam, and condensate
    • Cooling water
    • Influent and wastewater treatments
    • Desalination / Organics removal
    • Odor control
    • Combustion additives

    Fuel Conditioner Concentrate

    Residual fuel oils pose a host of challenges, from sludge formation to a mix of carbon particles, as well as tars and contaminants, accelerated by heating. In turn, resulting issues can include tank accumulation, strainer clogging, and increased soot and equipment coating with gums and varnishes. While corrosion naturally reduces metal lifespan, the high viscosity of heavy fuels, worsened by the trend toward higher viscosities, can negatively impact equipment performance.
