ตัววัดแรงดันน้ำ -cutting strategies developed by Jet Demolition have launched a new benchmark for well being and security within the petrochemical business, which represents a highly unstable and hazardous work setting.
The tools and methodology pioneered by Jet Demolition has the added ‘green’ advantage of limiting incidental contamination of natural assets, which is mostly unavoidable using less superior techniques. This proactive strategy has resulted in the demolition specialist having completed over one hundred projects for a quantity one native petrochemical producer, as well as enterprise work for the bulk of the most important gamers in this sector, Jet Demolition Project Engineer Andre Botes reveals.
Apart from oil and gas amenities, Jet Demolition’s expertise additionally encompasses hexane vegetation, chemical vegetation, gasoline tanks, and storage facilities. “Petrochemical demolition types a part of our heavy industrial demolition portfolio.

The company’s fleet features a choice of diverse demolition shears and ripping instruments of varied sizes and weights for added flexibility in flammable environments. The demolition shears, specifically, vary from a few hundred kilograms to over 12 tonnes, including the largest model in Africa at current.
“Our state-of-the-art cold-cutting equipment means we can carry out demolition work in essentially the most risky environments without impacting our clients’ operational processes, which is crucial when it comes to downtime and productivity,” Botes elaborates, including that Jet Demolition has successfully pioneered cold-cutting expertise in South Africa.
Botes adds that Jet Demolition has a fully-fledged security department that deploys safety officers to all sites, and often multiple depending on the complexity of the venture. “In addition, we have developed particular protected work and working procedures for the petrochemical industry,” Botes stresses.

While Jet Demolition has carried out profitable petrochemical demolition work in Africa, Botes feedback that there is rather more scope in the the rest of Africa, especially with the oil price on the increase.
