REMONDIS Maintenance & Services

Industrial services at their best

The BUCHEN companies offer a wide range of highly specialist and automated industrial cleaning systems. Operators of refineries, chemical businesses and power stations are not only able to use the services delivered by its various subsidiaries but can also benefit from comprehensive cross-divisional concepts that include a whole range of different cleaning and maintenance tasks. And, as most projects generate waste, we are also able to manage these materials and ensure they are sent for professional treatment. No matter which industrial service you ask us to carry out, you can rest assured that our qualified staff will always complete your project successfully – thanks to our years of experience and our stringent health, safety and environmental standards.

BUCHEN UmweltService was one of the first companies in its industry to be awarded the RAL Quality Mark [Gütezeichen] for industrial plant services. A number of other accreditations also ensure the company's stringent standards are maintained and documented, such as quality management (ISO 9001), health and safety management (SCCP, OHSAS 18001) and environmental management (ISO 14001).

    • Waste management

      • As part of our waste management work, we draw up a comprehensive and environmentally sound waste management concept that is targeted at your business' specific requirements. We carry out all the tasks here (often in collaboration with the REMONDIS Group) from providing you with storage containers all the way through to collecting, transporting and treating the waste materials and chemicals.

      Plate heat exchanger services

      • Plate heat exchangers are used in a whole variety of industries to make production processes energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. These machines are most effective when they are clean as any build-up of debris affects the transfer of heat. Our team of experts provide a full range of fast and reliable services (from dismantling, to cleaning, to servicing the systems) to (re-)integrate bolted plate heat exchangers.

      Biogas plant services

      • We deliver a comprehensive range of services for your biogas plants – from project planning, to drawing up extensive work and safety concepts, all the way through to completing the actual tasks. Moreover, we can carry out regular maintenance and inspection work while the plants are online to ensure the gas output remains at a consistent level and that all regulations are fulfilled.

      Reactor services

      • We are one of the leading providers of reactor services both at home and abroad. Our wide and varied range of services covers all tasks that need to be carried out on catalyst-based processing plants, primarily those found at refineries and (petro)chemical businesses. Both the mechanical work and the task of removing and replacing the catalyst are carried out in a normal atmosphere or – if necessary – in a nitrogen atmosphere.

        These services are provided by:

        BUCHEN-ICS GmbH

      Chemical industrial cleaning

      • We offer chemical etching and cleaning services (using circulation and spray technology and closed-loop rinsing systems) to remove particularly stubborn deposits found on the outside and inside of plant parts. The specialty chemical that we use here works particularly well when the plant is in operation.

        These services are provided by:

        BUCHEN UmweltService GmbH

      Safety services

      • We have in-depth knowledge of safety technology and are able to offer a wide range of services to industrial customers, firefighters and the emergency services – from providing advice on safety technology, to servicing, hiring out and selling such equipment, all the way through to training people how to use it.

      Foundry services

      • BUCHEN has been providing foundries with reliable recycling services for over 20 years now by recovering the amines used as a catalyst in their production process. We operate a closed-loop recycling system: taking the amine sulphate, treating it in our plant and returning the high quality recycled amines to the foundry supplier industry – meeting all regulations and promoting the circular flow economy.

      Remediation/dismantling services

      • Cleaning up contaminated buildings and industrial plants is a complex task as the building materials often pose a major risk to both human health and the environment. We have the specialist knowledge needed to carry out this work reliably and safely – removing, transporting and treating the hazardous materials as well as ensuring that all safety measures are in place to keep the environment and all those working on site safe.

      Industrial cleaning

      Suction excavator services

      • We help customers carrying out roadworks or other projects by using our suction excavators to expose underground cables and pipes – a precise method that causes no damage to the pipes or surrounding area. This service has a number of advantages: little time is needed to complete the work, the ground material is excavated quickly and the impact on traffic flow and the environment is minimal.

      Cold cutting

      • Stringent safety measures are a must when carrying out cutting work at industrial plants. BUCHEN uses water abrasive suspension cutting (WASC) technology in environments where there is a risk of explosion. This is a particularly good system for cutting pipes, tank openings, fittings, reactors and large-scale tanks. Even high strength materials, double-walled elements and multi-layer composite parts can be cut up easily without having to use heat at any stage of the process.

      Sludge dewatering

      • The main reason for dewatering sludge is to reduce the volume of material. This is done by processing the industrial sludge so that the solid and liquid contents can be separated from each other. Products such as alkaline solutions, acids and oils are filtered and mixtures of oil, water and solids are treated in decanters. Our highly qualified staff offer a range of specialist services in this field to the chemical, petrochemical and steel industries.

At no stage during the cleaning process do the operatives have to enter the silo.
