Reducing Costs and Increasing Productivity

CEDA has worked with numerous clients to reduce time spent performing decoking services. In one instance, CEDA reduced the pigging time per furnace from more than 30 hours per unit to 18-22 hours per unit.

This resulted in a 30-40% reduction in the time the furnace was offline and a direct reduction in costs for the client. CEDA was able to do this through:

  • Progressive pigging practices for size variances throughout the units.
  • Equipment maintenance procedures to minimize downtime.
  • Technology enhancements on both CEDA designed pumper and filtration units to increase operational efficiency.
