Petrochemistry and Tank Farms

Petrochemistry and Tank Farms

Chemical processes are particularly prone to explosions, fires and overpressure incidents.

Requirements

Storage facilities and rooftop tanks represent particular risk factors in petrochemical and chemical industry plants.

Fires occurring in refineries and petrochemical plants produce significantly faster temperature rises and often dramatic heat development. Very large ammounts of water and a high delivery pressure are therefore required for extinguishing water supply. Our systems perform with high reliability, efficiency and environmental friendliness, and with their low maintenance requirements, they offer the ideal solution for the very special demands of the petrochemical industry.

Solutions

Fire Fighting Units according to VdS
Fire Fighting Units according to VdS

Holzhauer-Pumpen was significantly involved in developing the idea of supplying pump units in compact design more than 30 years ago. Ever since, we have succeeded in achieving the highest level of perfection for this design, which has enabled us to defend our technological leadership against the competition.

SCHALLEX Reduction of Structure-Borne Noise
SCHALLEX Reduction of Structure-Borne Noise

Noise has a negative effect on both the entire body as well as on our health. Diesel fire pump units are loud and subject to intense vibrations due to their design – thanks to our SCHALLEX system and other provisions, such as encapsulation of the entire unit, we have managed to reduce vibrations and noise down to a minimum.

Emergency Power Generators
Emergency Power Generators

We supply ready-to-operate and ready-to-connect emergency power units, also as prefabricated stations and also noise-reduced. On request, the units can be equipped with intake and exhaust air silencers for a surge load capacity of up to 800 kVA or are manufactured in compact design with coordinated controller and mains switching.

Foam Extinguishing Technology
Foam Extinguishing Technology

Some fires can only be extinguished with special agents, which also include foam solutions. Precision proportioning systems and special pumps are required to produce effective extinguishing foam. We design, manufacture and supply approved foam concentrate pump units for all types of foam concentrate and all commercially available viscosities.
