Tank cleaning services are completed using our a powerful, state of the art 4,000 gallon vacuum tank truck with the ability to pump waste and wash water up to 1,000 feet away from where the truck is staged. Customers can be assured we can reach you no matter where your slip assignment is. The vacuum system utilized on the truck is an enclosed self lubricated system. This will ensure that no annoying smoke will be in the vicinity during pump outs or tank cleaning as experienced with older vacuum pumps that burn oil and exhaust smoke to stay cool. We utilize both truck mounted and mobile high pressure steam cleaning units depending on the job setup.

Safety is our priority. All tank cleaning technicians only operate on filtered and monitored supplied breathing air and full face respirators that meet OSHA and NIOSH standards. Tank hole watch personnel are always utilized. Once the tanks have been thoroughly cleaned, we will inspect the condition of the protective epoxy tank coating / tank lining and note any deficiencies to the chief engineer or captain. At that time we can recommend and discuss any required epoxy coating repairs.
