Tank cleaning can vary in complexity and we have gained expertise in this field by cleaning from a small open top chamber all the way through to 13,000 tonne storage tanks with the requirement for full internal scaffolding.
More often than not, tank entry observing confined space methods is required which is why we insist our teams are kept up to date with the latest training for confined space, high pressure water jetting, health and safety and first aid courses.
It is likely that as a result of tank cleaning, a waste product is created either from the remnants of the product stored in the tank or from cleaning substances used to achieve the desired level of cleanliness. We utilise our tanker fleet working in conjunction with site services to remove this waste on an on-going basis and disposing of waste at licensed facilities.
We are fully equipped with all PPE, breathing apparatus and all other equipment is regularly maintained and checked before each day’s work commences. In the unlikely event of equipment failure, we employ our own team of fitters who carry spare parts with them.
Our high pressure water jetting equipment consists of a fleet of vehicles either on board our van packs or towed including low pressure box trailers, medium/high pressure van packs, trailer towed high pressure units, hot water/steam producing high pressure rigs and up to 10,000 psi with a variety of accessories to compliment any tank cleaning requirement including spinning apparatus and rotating jetter heads.
