Tank and Batch Reactor cleaning for commercial plants and manufacturing is one of our essential industrial services.

We have the powerful vacuum trucks, pumps and hydro-blasting technology for flushing and scouring a tank containing a solid or liquid. We have years of petroleum and chemical industry experience removing flammable residue, working in gaseous situations, and purging sludge, fouling and deposits.

You can arrange tank and reactor cleaning on a 24-hour on-call,
nationwide emergency basis.

Tank Cleaning using High Pressure

Clean-Co's automatic tank cleaning technology removes deposits including hardened materials from tank internal walls at pressures of up to 26,100 psi. The units operate using the power of high pressure water so no other energy sources or extra cleaning materials are necessary. The wide range of Clean-Co's nozzles are with various lengths and shapes that enable the cleaners to be use for many applications. Units can be fitted with one or two arms.

Because entry into vessels can be tricky or hazardous, we use 3-D water blast nozzles on our multi-phase Hydroblaster that can eliminate the need to "go in". This technology rotates two jets of water at 90 degrees to each other, to fully clean an entire vessel. This makes the jobsite far less complicated, because there is no need for a hole watch or to have rescue personnel on standby during the operation. When entry is necessary, the perfect technology for surface tank cleaning is the SPIN JET®, which makes quick work of removing a buildup of the residue of your product; and it can hydro blast away coatings and linings.

This rotation motion is transferred via a built-in drive and reduction gear which in turn, rotates the cleaner around its axis. By rotating on two axes, the water jets can reach all parts of the tank interior. Speed of rotation is controlled by an adjustable induction brake magnet.

We have proven to top industrial companies that our patented, intensely high pressure process is superior to other techniques for tank cleaning. Our operators and technicians consistently prove they make safety a priority while delivering quality, efficient tank cleaning – zero injuries in five years! That's because our crews boast an average of five years of experience, with training and certification in hydroblasting and vacuum truck and pump operation. The supervisor we send to oversee your project has passed 30+ hours of OSHA training. Our firm has earned a top EMR rating from the insurance industry. We are committed to compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations governing workplace and client safety. We back up our crews with an investment in the latest technology and equipment for safe, superior tank cleaning.

Our clients are often interested in the demonstrated power of our Multi-Phase Hydroblaster. On one recent jobsite, it was deemed far too unsafe to use a torch to cut into an oil tank, and so cutting of a twelve foot square hole was accomplished using high pressure water to make the incision. The steel plate was an inch thick! This is the real world example of the safe cutting technology that can be used on tank cleaning including removal of coatings, polymers, scale and fouling.

Clean-Co owns and maintains a full variety of tank and pipe cleaning equipment for industrial applications. 

Our Hydroblast equipment and pumps can deliver liquid safely at high velocity and pressure to remove the most fouled, rusted and coated metals. Large diameter pipes and bends are efficiently cleaned with our rotating hydroblast devices. See the information on our nozzles and equipment at RHD Pipe Cleaning
