Clearing Petroleum Residue From Tanker Cars, Vessels and Storage Tanks

Dilute 1 part ZYMPLEX PLUSİ with 50 to 75 parts of water. Always add ZYMPLEX PLUSİ to water, but NOT water to ZYMPLEX PLUSİ
Spray the ZYMPLEX PLUSİ water solution heated to 75-85C on surface to be cleaned using 10-30 bar of pressure with the rate of approximately 1 gallon (4 liters) per 10 sq. meters.
Wait 3 to 15 minutes and wash the cleaned surface with hot water.

Application of a solution of ZYMPLEX PLUSİ to a contaminated surface

It must be noted that:
• Heating of ZYMPLEX PLUSİ -water solution should be undertaken immediately before spraying, because the long heating time destroys enzymes. It is possible to add ZYMPLEX PLUSİ using injectors but such process requires precise tuning due to possibility of extensive foaming, which in turn may lead to poor ZYMPLEX PLUSİ mixing in water and may result in poor cleaning performance.

• The elapsed time for the operations does not depend on the thickness of contaminants layer, but on the temperature of the surface to be cleaned and spraying pressure, as presented below. The ZYMPLEX PLUSİ acts as a surfactant to help break up organic mass by neutralizing the sub-atomic ionic (electrostatic) charges. In case of paraffin, for example, ZYMPLEX PLUSİ will unbind up the paraffin into small macro-crystallized pieces, which can be vacuumed, washed or "mucked" out.

• The temperature of the surface to be cleaned (in case of storage tanks or containers it is the temperature of the walls) will determine the elapsed time requirements for cleaning operation. The optimum temperature is +25? and above. Surface temperature below +25C will required the longer elapsed cleaning time, and surface temperature below +18C would require a second treatment with some waiting time between treatments. The use of ZYMPLEX PLUSİ when surface temperature is below +10C becomes non-effective due to essentially instantaneous macro-crystalization of paraffin.

• The higher the spraying pressure - the higher the process effectiveness. However the spraying pressure may be limited by:
personnel and equipment capabilities;

• Possibilities of high foam generation due to excessive pressure.

• The higher the spraying temperature - the higher the process effectiveness. However the temperature should be limited to not exceed 75-85C due to safety.

• Because contaminants differs in type, thickness, surface temperature etc, it is recommended to experiment with different combination of ZYMPLEX PLUSİ concentrations, rate of discharge, temperature and pressure of spraying in order to achieve the optimum operations with minimum ZYMPLEX PLUSİ demand.
If it is not feasible to apply high temperature ZYMPLEX PLUSİ cleaning operation, the Petro-ffin enzyme cleaning process offers the alternate method of cleaning contaminated surfaces.

Clearing Petroleum, Oils and Oil Products in Pipelines
The following describes a procedure for cleaning pipelines used for hydrocarbon products, such as crude oil and petroleum refinery products. Identical procedure applies to pipelines contaminated with edible oil products.

Mix ZYMPLEX PLUSİ with water with the concentration 1:50 -1:75
Pump the mix through pipeline.
For large diameter pipelines, to reduce consumption of ZYMPLEX PLUSİ and assure effective cleaning of overhead parts of pipelines, spray the ZYMPLEX PLUSİ mixture on the inside of pipelines and follow with water wash some 3-4 minutes after of ZYMPLEX PLUSİ -water mixture application.

ZYMPLEX PLUSİ -water mixture is not flammable and operation with open flame (such as welding) may be conducted after the cleaning application without use of additional safety precaution.
ZYMPLEX PLUSİ is completely compatible with oil and oil product in all phases of processing and storage.

Clearing Hydrocarbon Contaminants in Sewage Systems, Pipes and Odor Control
The 5% ZYMPLEX PLUSİ solution in water is used for the removal and reduction of contaminants from the sewage systems. The solution may be applied by one of the following three methods: a) simply pumped through the system, b) sprayed on surfaces with contaminants or c) filling the system with the solution.
In order to open obstructed pipes it recommended pouring the ZYMPLEX PLUSİ solution in the pipe as close to the point of obstruction as possible and allowing the solution working for several hours.

The ZYMPLEX PLUSİ will also concurrently remove the unpleasant odors from the sewage system.

Clearing Hydrocarbons from Industrial Wastewater and Treatment Facilities
Hydrocarbon wastes, such us petroleum and petroleum based products, create a severe problems for all waste water treatment plants killing the bacteria used for waste water treatment and contaminating the environment.

Use of ZYMPLEX PLUSİ provides significant assistance in negating these problems.
ZYMPLEX PLUSİ is a specific enzyme and contains no bacteria of any kind, which may interfere with sewage treatment systems. It requires no complex or expensive installation, has low operation cost and is practically maintenance free. It is metered into the waste effluent as early as possible according to the flow and organic containment levels, such as biological oxygen demand, suspended solids, fats, oils, grease and other impurities.

It is recommended to start the procedure from the concentration ZYMPLEX PLUSİ in water 1:10,000 and experimentally correct the concentration achieving the highest of performance with the minimum of ZYMPLEX PLUSİ consumption.

The hydrocarbons in wastewater after treatment with ZYMPLEX PLUSİ will coagulate into large flakes, which will float on the surface or settle near the bottom, and are easy to remove.
ZYMPLEX PLUSİ will also clean the interior (walls and bottom) of the storage tanks and pipelines.

The residual of the ZYMPLEX PLUSİ will continue to work as a biocatalyst and activate bacteria used for waste water treatment.
