Technology and Unmatched Tank Cleaning Expertise  

With our unparalleled experience and knowledge of tank cleaning technologies, we can help our customers improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their tank cleaning operations, reduce their operating costs, minimise environmental impact and ensure safety throughout the cleaning process is paramount. 
We are able to offer a wide variety of tank cleaning techniques that feature total process containment, tank ventilation, vapour recovery and scrubbing, and automated technologies to minimise personnel exposure and eliminate or reduce manned entry into the tank. 
Petrotech offers comprehensive tank cleaning services which exceed our clients' expectations. 
We work in a variety of industries 
with our tank cleaning activities, including: 
Oil and gas. 
Food and drink manufacturing. 
Renewable sector. 
We offer many solutions 
to achieve the excellent tank cleaning quality: 
Tank cleaning with a wide range of tools based on tank conditions and material. 
Separations, dewatering and processing of sludges into a useful on site fuel stock or preparation for an on-site feed or recycling. 
Disposal or recovery solutions. 
Circulation of tank bottoms with articulating nozzles. 
Manned and unmanned hydraulically driven dozers to aide removal of heavy materials. 
Fully automated robotic technology and solutions. 
Manway Cannons 
The Manway Cannon forms a unit consisting of a cleaning nozzle, infrared lenses, video camera and zone 1 searchlight, mounted in a cleaning opening of the tank. Controlled from a mobile control room with a self-sufficient energy supply, the flexible cleaning cannon can flush out any point in the tank with water or some other medium. A hydraulic pump generates the required pressure. 
Hydro Dozer 
The dozer is a hydraulic driven small dozer which can be easily disassembled and used in a number of applications. This robotic application, with remote control station, allows the tank to remain online whilst sludge removal occurs and is ideal for removing slurry and bulk product inside a tank, open top tank or pond area; is very effective in a submerged state; and reduces the need for manned entry. 
Orbital Tank Spinning 
Petrotech have available turbine driven machines with the cleaning medium passing through the machine before being delivered by the nozzles as high impact jets. We have a selection of orbital jetting nozzles to suit various tank diameters. All the models and specifications are made for use with hot water and/or a chemical cleaner. In addition, bespoke A frame mounting units means we do not require holes cold cutting into the roof saving time and costs. 
The state-of-the-art centrifuge application is generally applied to the recovery of oil from crude oil tanks. The centrifuge works by spinning a stainless steel drum whilst simultaneously introducing the contaminated oil, and within this spinning, gravity is increased 100 times. Aided by the possible heat and flocculants, the oil and water becomes separated. 
Petrotech’s experienced teams are capable 
of cleaning any type of tank 
including crude, heavy fuel and slop oil, asphalt, wastewater, gasoline, molasses, benzene and more. We now operate multiple tank cleaning equipment reinforcing our team as an industry leader.
