RSI are specialists in vacuuming, screening and replacing catalysts in refineries, gas processing and chemical plants; experts in inert gas entry using RSI’s Supplied Air Monitoring System (SAMSTM) to cut reactor downtime. To read more about our services, please
RSI’s many years of experience are a definite asset to customers. In fact, many concepts and designs pioneered by RSI are widely used by their customers and competitors alike.
RSI excels in keeping turnaround uneventful, but we’re equally at home with the unexpected, and quick to respond with creative solutions. It is our goal to meet your needs in the safest, most cost-efficient way possible, even if we have to invent it!
RSI’s exclusive REACTORVISIONTM inspection, for example, gives a firsthand view of exactly what is happening inside the vessel, providing a visual record of your equipment, and allowing critical decisions based on facts instead of guesswork.
Overall management is critical. RSI has proven expertise, from designing systems and procedures for unusually challenging jobs, to directing the efforts of the many personnel involved.
Safety is the most important aspect of any job RSI does. Careful pre-job planning, expert supervision, and on-site safety meetings help assure the safe completion of every assignment. Video monitors, back-up safetymen and equipment, and RSI training assures a safely completed job.
All RSI personnel involved in handling hazardous materials have completed a five-step qualification program, including a 24-hour workshop designed to meet OSHA requirements, and participate annually in a ten-hour refresher course. They must also pass a physical examination to meet OSHA requirements. To name just a few of the subjects covered, RSI in-house training includes: Respiratory Protection, Fall Protection, Confined Space Hazards and Entry, Forklift Operation, and Hazard Communication.
RSI supervisors must complete an additional eight-hour course. Veteran supervisors on every job provide direct and responsive communication with
|History of Catalyst Handling||
| || |
|Back in the early 1960s, refinery and chemical processes were becoming more complex. The changing complexity required catalysts capable of providing greater yields while operating under more severe conditions. The severity of the production runs caused the reactor units to change with greater frequency. These more expensive catalysts were often re-usable, but required careful handling. The traditional programme during a shutdown and after regeneration, was to dump the catalyst into the bucket on a front-end loader and take it to another site for screening by hand. It was important to treat the....[more]|| |
