Innovations and Continuous Improvement - CR Asia Group

CR3 recognises the need for continuous improvement and innovation, specifically the need to drive enhanced safety, improved efficiency and productivity, support our sustainability aspirations and deliver increased value and cost savings.

Our innovation program is a unique opportunity to capture and develop new ideas in collaboration with all stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, partners and staff.

As a part of the process, we endeavour to gather innovative ideas for the following categories:

  • New equipment – these ideas could save time, enhance safety, improve quality, reduce cost etc.
  • New procedure or methodology – these ideas could improve our work processes and efficiencies
  • Incremental improvements – these could make equipment or business operations safer/better
  • New technical partner – these are companies who we could consider partnering/working with
  • New service line – these are ideas relating to new services we could add to our existing business

We believe that by engaging all stakeholders to participate in our innovation program, we can identify better solutions to deliver increased value for all.


Rover A remotely operated vehicle designed to significantly reduce and even eliminate personnel entering confined spaces to unload catalysts. Rover does not need to take frequent rest breaks, unlike its human equivalent, therefore shortens catalyst replacement schedules. Proven to minimise confined space entry significantly
Advanced Wet Dumping Our Advanced Wet Dumping technique is an enhanced wet dumping solution that combines drilling and hydro-blasting technology to remove virtually all of the fused catalyst in the reactor without having to enter the vessel. It significantly decreases the amount of wastewater generated and maintains the integrity of the internal components
Automated four-drum tipper CR3's four-drum tipper is effective for unloading or decanting of catalysts or other products. It is capable of lifting up to four drums of various weights and sizes and delivers contents to loading hoppers or bulk bins in a safe and efficient manner. A significantly safer operation, it is also up to 20% faster than manual lifting
CR3's Dense Loader CR3's Dense Loader evenly distributes the catalyst to achieve a level profile and uniform density. Dense loading enables more catalyst to be loaded per unit volume, which increases throughput, reactor run length and product quality. Effective, reliable and cost-efficient, it routinely improves densities by 15%
Internal Bundle Cleaning Our advanced, automated technology significantly increases the efficiency, quality and safety of internal bundle cleaning, in-situ tube cleaning and the cleaning of fin-fan cooler tubes.  The multi-lance systems increase productivity too, as much higher pressures and flows can be used.
Outside Bundle Cleaning Our automated technology for outside bundle cleaning (OBC) is faster, safer and significantly more effective than conventional methods. The remote operation removes the operator from the line of fire, enabling higher flows and pressures to be used, which improves the quality of the cleaning substantially.
