BUCHEN Industrial Services Polska Sp. z o.o. is a leading company in the field of industrial maintenance services

Short introduction

BUCHEN Industrial Services Polska Sp. z o.o. constantly improves its services to meet all customer requirements. Our high quality equipment and high standards of safety are a guarantee of the best cleaning results, performing work in short terms and high flexibility at competitive prices.

Industrial cleaning

Our offer includes industrial cleaning, which we continuously improve and transform into highly specialized and automated services. These include cleaning of heat exchangers, air coolers, tanks, pipelines, columns, etc. BUCHEN guarantees the professional implementation of every service - from initial consultation, through effective implementation of the solution to final documentation.


Vacuum loading of waste

  • Vacuum/suction trucks are used to vacuum up and blow solid, semi-solid, dry or liquid materials. They can also be deployed for hazardous substances

    Our vacuum trucks, controlled using the pressure present in the tank, allow for quick and efficient removal of even the toughest of waste from hard to reach places or hazardous areas. Vehicles are equipped with storage barrels from 8 m3 to 12 m3 and have the suction capacity of up to 8,100 m3/h.

    This enormous suction power and radius of operation of up to 300 m even allow for the extraction of pasty substances. The extracted material may be removed by blowing, overturning or placed directly in big bags.

    The use of vacuum trucks allows us to remove any material, even from hard to reach places.

Conventional power plants service

  • Many years of experience in performing services for the energy sector allows us to offer a range of solutions. We have the know-how in cleaning the heating surfaces of boilers, removing ash from the plenum space and ducts, cleaning condensers, settlers, electrostatic precipitators, coal bunkers and vacuuming the outer surface of boilers.

Reactor services

    • Reactor maintenance – replacement of catalytic converters

      • Spent catalysts must be removed from reactors. One of the methods to empty the reactor is vacuum unloading by using high-performance vacuum devices, including devices with nitrogen recirculation. We provide reactor loading services both using sock loading and dense loading. All work is performed in accordance with safety standards, also in inert atmosphere(nitrogen).

      Unloading spent catalyst

      • Depending on the type of reactor, the material can be drained by gravity using a discharge device placed on the reactor or drained through the head of the reactor using highperformance suction devices, equipped with an N2 cooling system and recirculation. Spent catalyst is packed in suitable containers and then processed directly on site.

      Loading reactors

      • Depending on specifications, we fill the reactors using sock loading or dense loading. In the case of sock loading, the catalyst and inert material are loaded in a way that ensures protection of the material through a special hose. In the case of dense loading, the rotation system causes an even loading of the catalyst in the reactor. The high density of the catalyst obtained this way prevents the formation of so-called hot spots.

    BUCHEN carries out all works in the reactor in a nitrogen atmosphere. The Life Support System (LSS) is used as a key component of the safety equipment necessary for this purpose

Automated tank cleaning

  • BUCHEN uses a variety of automated cleaning processes for enclosed tanks, depending on the type and size of the tank, as well as the nature of the residue to be removed. This helps us to avoid using hazardous materials associated with manual cleaning. The tank cleaning device has a modular design and is installed in containers - allowing for quick transport to the place of use.

    The tank cleaning system is based on a modular design. The main components of the system include suction and discharge modules as well as flushing and rotary nozzles, so-called jet washers. All elements are protected against explosion.

    Jet washers are installed using tubular guides of the previously disassembled support of the tank's roof. A special pipeline system with proven high-speed connections, as well as efficient filter packs supportthe cleaning method. Thanks to the closed cleaning process, the emission of hydrocarbons is greatly reduced, in contrast to the traditional, manual cleaning of tanks.

    Tanks can also be cleaned using a special water Manway Cannon. It generates a stream of water at arange of up to 40 m. The water cannon's working nozzle is controlled hydraulically and moves in two directions (horizontally and vertically) in the range above 1800. This system allows for cleaning the entire inner space of the tank, directing the washings toward the outlet ports. The use of a video camera with a spotlight on the water cannon allows for continuous remote monitoring of the cleaning process from the control station and its backup file (video file or image files).

    • Advantages of using the system:

      • Short cleaning time
      • Higher safety standard
      • Minimizing hydrocarbon emissions
      • Very high degree of recovery of hydrocarbons (e.g. crude oil)
      • Minimizing the residues in tanks and related disposal costs
    • BUCHEN provides tank cleaning services using closed, lowemissionsystems that offer high product recovery rates

Sludge dewatering

    • Dewatering technologies
      BUCHEN has specialized technologies for sludge dewatering.

      In this respect, we use the following equipment:

      • Chamber filter presses,
      • Membrane filter presses,
      • 2-phase decanter centrifuges,
      • 3-phase decanter centrifuges,
      • Gas-tight systems for 3-phase separation, in accordance with the ATEX directive.
    • The oil sludge separation is a specialised service predominantly employed in the petrochemical industry

    Chamber filter presses are available in different versions and sizes. Their filter surface ranges from 60 to 350 m2, the volume of the chamber is from 0.6 m3 to 5 m3, and the filter cake may be extracted using a forklift or a conveyor belt.

    Most centrifugal separators have explosion protection. BUCHEN also features floating suction excavators, which pump the sludge using an armored pump.

Cleaning boilers using sandblasting technology

    • BUCHEN specialises in cleaning all types of heating surface using mechanical technology and material-friendly tools.

      We can offer you a comprehensive package of services:

      • Cleaning of SIC material and refractory concrete
