We employ high-volume, low-pressure water to clean oil tanks from the outside if the levels of vapors inside require it. Using high-volume trucks with lances attached, our reach capability into the oil tank is approximately 50 feet. This allows us to quickly and safely flush the tank, remove flammable liquids and move the sludge to a pick-up point. Upon entry, the stream is split between two lances and the tank is quickly and thoroughly cleaned. To reduce the volume of water required, we use a unique micron-filtration system that allows us to filter the water generated and reuse it in the cleaning process.

By using this process as well as our fleet of industrial vacuum tankers, pumps and equipment ensures the rapid, safe and complete removal of both solids and liquids from oil tanks. Oil tanks are cleaned mechanically, using both entry and non-entry methods that are performed by certified NIM personnel.
