The company offers a progressive mechanical decoking system utilising Cokebusters patented scraper tools, designed to ensure 360° circumferential coverage while minimising the risk of damage to return bends and pipework. Following the decoking operation, the company is able to provide an accurate coke removal verification service to ensure a pass is clean using its patented in-line inspection tool.

Being able to offer a fully combined service of mechanical decoking and intelligent in-line tube inspection means that Cokebusters can provide a streamlined and convenient solution for their clients, whilst also having the flexibility to work alongside alternative decoking companies throughout the world.

Dr David Thewsey - Technical Director for Cokebusters, said, “This attractive business model is revolutionising the mentality of refiners worldwide. With continued and growing success across the globe, Cokebusters now has a vast and impressive resume of clients. The general feedback we get throughout the industry is that once we carry out a site operation, the client has no need to look elsewhere for alternative service providers for any future mechanical decoking or in-line inspection. This valuable and commending feedback speaks volumes.”

In June 2018, Cokebusters was presented with the Queens Award for Enterprise; the UK’s most prestigious award for business in recognition of their ongoing commitment to innovate, develop and continue to grow within a demanding global market. The award recognises the company’s outstanding performance which is a testament to its committed and highly talented team of like-minded individuals, who constantly push against technological boundaries with the simple aim of delivering the best service.
