PROBLEM

To find a more efficient method of cleaning oil storage tanks.

 

SOLUTION

Incorporate a high pressure pump in a complete pollution control/tank cleaning truck mounted system.

 

 

SPECIFICATIONS


Pressure....................200 Kg/cm2 / 196 bar / 2850 psi
Flow .............................................. 21 lpm / 5.5 US gpm
Temperature........................................................Ambient
Fluid ......................................................Water/Chemicals
Duty Cycle ......................................................Continuous
Drive......................................................................Hydraulic
P.S.: To clean the tanker fast, bigger pump model should be selected.

 

BENEFITS

  • Provides significant time savings: what formerly took two weeks, now takes less than two days.
  • Results in a better clean-up: Former hand method removed the sludge but could not clean the tank surfaces as the high pressure does.
  • Offers versatility: system can be used for oil spillage clean-up at any location with a chemical high pressure washing of the area after oil removal. This unit is also easily adapted to fire protection.

OPERATION

After a period of time, sediment and oil film accumulate at the bottom of oil storage tanks. To replace the time consuming and inefficient traditional manual method of removing this sludge, a self-contained truck-mounted cleaning system can be developed containing a vacuum and a high pressure pump. With this system only one man enters the tank to handle the clean-up. A suitable high pressure pump operating at 21 lpm, 210 bar, complete with an unloader, and a nozzle blasts the inside surfaces of the tank, cleaning to the bare metal. This system also contains its own water supply and chemical feeder for the cleanup. Once the tank surfaces are cleaned, a rotary vacuum pump sucks the sludge and water from the oil tank into the holding tank on the truck.

 


The “Super Sucker” has a compact pump drive unit with water and hydraulic controls conveniently mounted behind the cab of the truck for easy monitoring of the operation.
