designed by John Brooks Company Limited injects bitumen slurry into the TSRU (Tailing Solvent Recovery Unit) to reclaim a high proportion of the solvents. This “Hot Tap” arrangement allows a full change out of worn manifolds and nozzles while the vessel is under full load. Not only is expensive downtime eliminated but the client is also able to operate efficiently with well-maintained equipment.
Since the slurry is extremely abrasive, we are providing high wear-resistant materials. The spray nozzles are made of Tungsten Carbide and internal pipe surfaces are overlaid with Chromium Carbide. To prove a smooth extraction of the wear parts and a tight seal, the extraction cylinder is chrome plated.
John Brooks has one of the most experienced engineering groups for Oil Sands Automatic Retractable Nozzle Systems. Our field engineers coordinate the client requirements with our design department to assure a cost-effective and reliable solution.
