Hydrocarbon storage tanks often require chemistry to treat product while in-service or to clean in preparation of out-of-service inspection. West Penetone offers a line of chemical products covering the entire spectrum of such activities, from surface degreasing to heavy deposit removal and degasification that allows for manned entry according to safety regulations.

Designed for compatibility, West Penetone’s oil-soluble products aid the dispersion of fouled material into the stream and allow for hydrocarbon re-processing and recovery. Water-soluble products can be applied in liquid circulation, dimensional jetting or steam to effectively break down solids and decontaminate vapor space. Presence of H₂S, VOCs and high LEL are successfully mitigated using select West Penetone products.
