Tank Cleaning

Tank Cleaning Companies

Above-Ground

Tank cleaning contractors use a wide array of methods and equipment depending on the specifics of their project. No two projects are the same. For many tank cleaning companies, using BioSolve® Pinkwater is an established part of their protocol in specific situations:

  • Cleaning & degassing tanks with highly volatile products: gasoline, condensate

  • Rapid reduction of LEL levels after the bulk of sludge has been removed

  • Reducing LEL levels or removing contamination in interstitial spaces (subfloor, ballast) prior to hot work

  • Rinsing pressure vessels on offshore oil platforms as part of scheduled maintenance

BioSolve® Pinkwater is an approved chemical for on-site work at almost every major oil company as well as at many state-owned oil companies in developing counties. BioSolve® spokespersons have presented talks on tank cleaning at past International Petroleum Environment Conferences (IPEC).

Under-Ground

UST service contractors clean and degas tanks during periodic inspections and when tanks are removed and taken out of service. These projects place a premium on safety, ease of use, and effectiveness. Past methods have included using nitrogen, dry ice, venting, and even water. Using high-pressure spray systems (pressure washers, gamma jet) to apply dilute solutions of BioSolve® products makes UST projects easier and safer.
