Bitumen/Heavy Oil Spill Clean-Up and Recovery Applications


Dry ice blasting is the safest and most effective solution in removing bitumen and heavy oil from facility components. Dry ice blasting easily cleans module components including structural steel, cable trays, piping (insulated or painted), valves, insulation blankets, hand rails, walkways, grating and more.

More thorough clean: In the event of a bitumen spill or release, dry ice blasting can safely restore your structure, buildings and equipment to a “like-new” condition while traditional methods such as steaming and hand scrubbing often leave behind unsightly stains.

Environmental benefits: The last thing anyone needs after a spill is adding more to the spill. Trying to contain and collect the added chemical and water is very difficult using traditional methods. Dry ice blasting does not add to the mess and Brothers uses innovative techniques to ensure that the removed bitumen is recovered.

Worker safety: Dry ice blasting is far more effective with less manpower. There are also fewer risks involved due to reduced chemical exposure.
