Clean-up test bench

The clean-up test bench is designed to test and validate clean-up techniques used to treat oiled hard substrates.

To accurately reproduce clean-up conditions

The clean-up test bench closely reproduces the conditions of high pressure washing techniques. This facility is entirely automated and programmable to avoid any errors caused by human intervention. One of the main characteristics of this equipment is its capacity to reproduce a full test protocol cycle without the slightest deviation.

In order to:

  • define the optimal settings for clean-up in terms of temperature, pressure, nozzle size, sweep rate, etc.
  • assess the influence of oil weathering on clean-up efficiency
  • evaluate the efficiency of washing agents according to the type of substrate and oil
  • assess the toxicity of effluents generated during clean-up using the ecotox test bench.
