ALPS Program (ARTIS Loss Prevention System)

The ARTIS Loss Prevention System (ALPS) Program aims to establish a comprehensive framework to prevent and minimize loss, damages, accidents, and other incidents that may occur during the various activities carried out on all ARTIS work Locations. This manual provides guidelines and procedures to be followed by all personnel and stakeholders involved in these activities to ensure a safe working environment and protect company assets. 

Loss prevention is of paramount importance in the industrial services/construction industry to safeguard employees, protect assets, maintain productivity, and ensure business continuity. By implementing effective loss prevention measures, organizations can significantly reduce the risk of accidents, financial losses, legal liabilities, and damage to their reputation. 


Loss Prevention System Pyramid framework is designed for incident reduction and incident free at a workplace.

The Loss Prevention System Program provides a framework for creating a safe and secure working environment. By adhering to the guidelines and procedures, ARTIS Intends to significantly reduce losses, protect their employees and assets, and foster a culture of safety and accountability. Regular review, assessment, and improvement are crucial to maintaining an effective loss prevention system in an ever-changing industrial environment.

ARTIS Industrial is driven by a vision to serve clients in remote and challenging locations around the globe. 

Our work is carried out by one integrated team committed to best practice operations. We are constantly developing new methods and improvements for both inert and non-inert entries, as well as non-entry catalyst removal. By utilizing a specially trained workforce and purpose-built equipment, ARTIS can execute catalyst projects efficiently and safely; with minimal delays from fusing, minimal catalyst attrition, and excellent dust control systems. 

  • Pre-commissioning of reactors and vessels 

  • Services in inert and toxic atmospheres, plus hot and hostile environments 

  • Reactor cooling utilising a proprietary liquid nitrogen system 

  • Unloading and loading of catalyst under inert or normal atmospheres 

  • Dense phase loading systems for the transfer of catalyst directly from grade to reactor manway, without the use of cranes and hoppers 

  • Innovative, purpose built-equipment ensuring low catalyst attrition rate 

  • Catalyst sampling and particle measurement 

  • Vacuum unloading with closed loop nitrogen re-circulation 

  • Catalyst transportation, storage, and containment (un- approved) 

  • Catalyst loading of reactors using unidense loading and conventional techniques 

  • Tubular reformer loading using unidense loading and conventional techniques 

  • Video inspection and assessment 

  • Shutdown planning, coordination and execution


CarboCat is an innovative service ARTIS Industrial have over the years adapted to serve the Catalyst Handling Industry gained from vast experiences in the Mining and Cement Industry.  

During Unloading operations Process Reactors are found to have fused or agglomerated Catalyst that often require Jack Hammering inside Confined space and under Inert Conditions, These conditions greatly increase the Risks and Time required during a Shutdown.

The primary objective of CarboCat is to improve Safety and efficiency of the Catalyst unloading process, CarboCat induces release of Liquid CO2 that dislodges Rock Hard Catalyst Deposits and Fluidises catalyst beds that are not free flowing by producing a highly controlled force by using CO2 Expansion Cartridges.

The controlled Instant release of Liquid CO2 into the Catalyst Bed by Non Detonating CO2 Gas Expansion Fracturing greatly reduces the confined space man-hour durations and minimises safety risks when work is being done in dusty and combustible materials are present.

ARTIS CarboCat service has been successfully used for the Catalyst & Coke removal operations in FCCU/ RFCCU Units, Catalyst Unloading of operations under Inert Conditions for Hydrocrackers/Hydro Treaters/ GOHDS/VGO/MHC/ARDS/RCD and other process reactors.
