Chemical Cleaning Services

Beralon is one of the most experienced and qualified chemical cleaning companies in Australia with a proud tradition servicing industrial, Oil & Gas, Commercial and Maritime customers, including the Royal Australian Navy for over 30 years. On site, or at our premises we provide a wide range of services.

Beralon offers the best solutions for your chemical cleaning needs for an extensive range of plant and equipment. We have the successfully completed many major projects in our cleaning station and clients’ sites.

Beralon Chemical Cleaning procedures consider the environment through choosing the least waste generating methodologies. We use fully Bio-Degradable chemistries in most of our jobs.

Acid based Chemical Cleaning, (Pickling/Descaling) and Passivation

Chemical Cleaning is a term describes two processes. The first is the pickling or descaling where Beralon uses an acid-based solution, which is completely compatible with the materials of the construction of the system, to dissolve mill scales, rust, operational scales and contaminants. The other is the Passivation where we deactivate the surface after the acid cleaning to prevent the surface from corrosion again through generating a temporary protective layer of gamma Hematite.

Beralon has its branded inhibited acid formulations customised to each job in hand. The acid type, concentration, operating temperature, and length of cleaning varies from job to job depending on the observations of our qualified engineers and technicians.

Beralon is always able to perform the chemical cleaning by dipping in our tanks, by recirculation method using our professional and reliable equipment of pumps, hoses, tanks, fittings, and others.

Beralon has a mobile laboratory to test on the spot the chemicals parameters required to have a better control and understanding of the processing under the way. Our laboratory is equipped with all the required testing calibrated devices, reagents, and runs by a qualified chemist.

Pickling and Passivation of Stainless Steels

Beralon is capable of performing pickling and passivation of all grades of Stainless steels. We successfully pickled and passivated almost all types of stainless steel pressure vessels, tanks, pipelines, spools, etc. Our Pickling and Passivation operations are conducted inline with the guidelines and recommendations of ASSDA and ASTM A380 and A967.

We are able to pickle and passivate Austenitic, Duplex, and Super Duplex materials. Our chemistry is based on Nitric acid and Hydrofluoric acids mixture that is deemed to remove all the Heat Affected Zone discolorations and to restore the protective Chromium Oxide layer.

Beralon does the pickling and passivation of the stainless-steel structures/systems regardless the shapes and the sizes. We have our experienced team and the proper equipment to pickle and passivate them by dipping in immersion tanks, spraying the surfaces using the chemicals mixtures in Gel form, and by recirculation of the pickling liquid using our compatible hoses and pumps.

Alkaline based cleaning, degreasing and flushing

Beralon is able to remove residual oils and greases with the use of alkaline based cleaning and flushing, covering any of the following:

Water, Fuel & Oil Piping Systems:

Flushing of oil and fuel system piping: This process is used as periodic maintenance to keep systems free of blockages and contaminants. Or as cleanliness after repairs to system piping.

Lubrication systems
Beralon has developed solutions over the years to ensure impeccable results to restore equipment to its original performance level. Regardless of the degradation or condition of the oil and grease, Beralon products will turn the situation around from oil varnish to carbonization, even the most difficult problems have a solution.

Hydraulic systems
Beralon can clean various size systems and handle oil filtering in accordance with the required ISO 9001 standards. Immediate payback is possible in the following areas: Pre-commissioning/preoperational cleaning, Decontamination of potable water piping, Degreasing/cleaning of parts and equipment, degreasing/cleaning of lubrication oil systems, and the Removal of oil and grease in air lines.

Hydro-blasting and High Pressure Washing

Beralon conducts a range of hydro-blasting and high pressure washing services. High pressure hydro jetting driven and operated by our skilled team will ensure the proper cleaning and removal of the hard scales and contaminants. This operation sometimes to clean the system by its own and sometimes we need to soak the system in a chemical solution to soften the sales to render it possible to go with no excessive high pressure to preserve the system from high pressure.

Beralon mixes detergents with the water to be used in the high-pressure jetting to have the work synergy of the detergency and the jetting powers.

Vacuum and other pipeline flushing and cleaning

It just takes time until calcium scale starts building up inside the pipe work of a vacuum systems, such as toilets. The flow reduces and eventually the system is blocked. It is not always easy to locate, let alone solve these blockages. Getting access to the pipes often takes demolishing elements of the locations’s interior and always means downtime in the system and all the additional inconvenience that results from it.

The most common solution is to avoid blockage by the periodic cleaning of the system. As this involves taking out of operation lines of toilets or other systmes, it is obvious that the cure is often worse than the problem. The disconnected line may be saturated in diluted acid (which does not only disrupt the services on board, but may also cause damage by leakage) or recirculated in a closed loop, which is more effective, but may have the same negative effects.

With Cee-Bee™ MR Maritime you need not experience any of these problems.

Cee-Bee™ MR Maritime specialist products are proven industry leaders in cleaning all types of vacuum pipelines.

Toilets and other systems can remain in operation while servicing and cleaning is performed

No damage to pipework, toilet mechanisms or biological sewage treatment plants

No problems with Loro, Blucher or other push fitting points and pipes

Mobile and easy to setup digital dosing units are the heart of the cleaning program

Sanitation & Disenfection Services

Beralon provides disinfection services in order to ensure drinking water safety. The most commonly used disinfection processes are Chlorination and Chlorination, but ozone, ultraviolet irradiation and chlorine dioxide are also used. Biocide washes can be used in order to control bacteria and biofilms which may become established inside new and existing pipework These methods are very effective in killing bacteria, e-Coli, Coliform, and all others.

NEW – Hot Tank cooler cleaning, treatment and service

As at September 2015 we have introduced a new in-house full service for charge air coolers up to 1.8m X
1.1m X 0.7M. We offer high pressure steam clean, hot tank alkaline chemical clean to remove oils, paints
and carbon build up, passivation to prevent oxidation, brightening to ensure all brass and Cu-Ni looks like
new, and fin straightening to ensure coolers work more efficiently, together with repainting if required
in water, oil based or baked enamel.
