TARMAC INTERNATIONAL BUILDS & BUYS SOIL REMEDIATION EQUIPMENT
What Is Soil Remediation?
Thermal soil remediation is treating hydrocarbon contaminated soils with heat. Tarmac does this in our rotary dryers (sometimes called desorbers). Heat volatilizes the hydrocarbons into a vapor, leaving the soils remediated. Oil field waste, refinery waste, tank bottoms as well as soil can be thermally treated and remediated. Tarmac builds both Direct Fired and Indirect Fired rotary drying remediation systems.
Tarmac: A Plant System Equipment Manufacturer
For more than 20 years, Tarmac International, Inc. has built complete thermal soil remediation plants that are in use around the world. Our thermal soil remediation plants have production rates ranging from 5 to 80 tons per hour. Systems can be portable or stationary. Tarmac designs and builds all components of the system.
What about Air Pollution Control?
First, heat vaporizes the hydrocarbons from the soil. Next, the mission is to clean the rotary dryer off-gas. Tarmac uses the following equipment components:
DIRECT FIRED PLANTS: cyclone, oxidizer, cooling heat exchanger, baghouse and acid gas scrubber
INDIRECT FIRED PLANTS: cyclone, high temperature baghouse, quench, acid gas scrubber and oxidizer
