TANK CLEANING

Less waste means lower cost.

The costliest part of cleaning crude and heavy oil storage tanks is the removal and disposal of accumulated sludge. Traditional industrial service companies and waste management providers charge based on the amount of waste they dispose of, which means they have little incentive to minimize the volume of sludge before final clean out.

At Allerion, your bottom line comes before ours. By reducing waste, we can help you:

1. Reclaim previously unavailable, valuable product.

2. Reduce or eliminate sediment that needs to be disposed of.

3. Cut down on labour hours spent on cleaning.

4. Significantly reduce tank outage time.

The DS Jet Mixing System

Our DS Jet Mixing System eliminates sludge and reclaims usable hydrocarbon in your crude oil storage tanks. And the best part? It does the job without removing your tank from service.

The ATC Lance

Tank cleaning can be difficult or even impossible when sludge interferes with the removal of manways. Our ATC Lance and cold-tap manway procedure quickly, safely and effectively reduces sludge volume while recovering useable hydrocarbons, eliminating the need to weld on an active tank. This patented, innovative technology also allows us to eliminate the sludge that has accumulated in front of manways. Additional uses allow us to inject chemicals, scavengers, and emulsion breakers into the tank without draining the tank or removing it from service.

High Capacity Gas Scrubber

In response to increasing concerns about the impact of odours and emissions on the neighbourhoods surrounding many sites, Allerion now has high-capacity gas scrubbers that can be deployed to reduce these problems.

Our scrubber is controlled by a Variable Frequency Drive to draw up to 10,000 cubic feet per minute of fresh air through any storage tank requiring manned entry and process the exhaust air through an activated carbon bed to control odours.
