National provider of railcar service and repair came to Pick Heaters, Inc. to design a tank car cleaning system. This system was to provide 130 GPM of 150°F water at 150 PSIG to two high pressure Gamajets® for cleaning and neutralization of tank cars. A method for blending caustic and/or detergent with the hot water supply was necessary dependant on the type of cleaning required.
Pick offered a complete skid mounted package with heater, temperature controller, divert valves, chemical feed pumps and high pressure pump. A remote located PLC was included for programming cycle times. All electrical components were NEMA 7 classification. Plant boiler capacity limitations also needed to be considered.
