OCTRON® is our solution for blowing off pellets on trucks. It offers with Operation Clean Truck solutions for the OCS project, Operation Clean Sweep. Our installations blow plastic granules off trucks to minimise the amount of plastic particles finding their way into the environnement. 

Operation Clean Sweep (OCS), Blowing off pellets on trucks, CYAGO, Drying and blowing solutions

Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is the umbrella term for the global (petro)chemical industry’s efforts to minimise the amount of plastic particles finding their way into the environment (the water, the ocean).

An important part of this is the cleaning / blowing of trucks. CYAGO has named this:

OCT – Operation Clean Truck

Trucks can be filled with up to 10 000 kilos of plastic granules. During the filling of the trucks, via a manhole at the top, there is a risk of spilling granules around the manhole.

Then as the trucks leave the site, granules end up on public roads, and via the rain, in gutters, sewers, rivers, seas and oceans. 

The principle of blowing off pellets on trucks

Our installations consist, as standard, of a tunnel, a blower, air knives, piping and an electrical cabinet. The blower with inlet silencer is mounted on a chassis next to the OCTRON installation.

The customised air knives blow off the plastic granules. The piping is made out of stainless steel.

In 2013, we installed a first installation for Total (in Feluy, Belgium). In 2015, the United Nations established the Sustainable Development Goals, a new global sustainable development agenda for 2030. These are promoted as global sustainable development goals. The result of these sustainable development goals, which include Operation Clean Sweep (OCS), has seen a continued demand for Octron® .

In 2019, we built another installation. In 2020, more installations were started up in the Netherlands. 2021 will begin with an installation in France.

CYAGO is happy to be able to contribute to a sustainable world.

Mind you, the video shows one of sizes. OCTRON® is fully customisable to your specific needs.
