Removing embedded NORM from metal and scale with traditional mechanical cleaning methods produces unreliable results, requires removing equipment from operations and creates a lot of NORM water waste. UHP cleaning is only effective on some scale areas that can be reached – it will not remove it from the steel pores.
To chemically remove NORM contamination embedded in the metal, we start with circulating FQE Scale-Solv SS to remove the scaling and build-up on the equipment walls.
Where there is no scale, we would instead utilize our patented chemistry FQE NORM-Clear to draw the embedded NORM heavy metals from the parent metal. Using this method will not cause corrosion, erosion, or damage to common internal equipment components.
