Product And Crude Oil Storage Tank Cleaning

Current industry practice allows internals of oil storage tanks to be regularly cleaned and inspected by approved inspectors. Tank cleaning is usually carried out within 12 years; and no later than 20 years. Traditional manual cleaning of crude oil tanks exposes workers to health and safety hazards of enclosed spaces. The huge volume of waste creates downstream problems for proper disposal.
Boilermaster uses Blabo's "manless entry" tank cleaning technology that recovers about 95% of hydrocarbon within the cleaning process1.  The system starts with introduction of fresh hydrocarbon through the floating roof tank, pushing stored/stale hydrocarbons across the system, with wastes filtered, recovering hydrocarbons. and the rest of the flow recycled through the roof tank in a continuous cycle.
