Increase Safety with Automated Tank Cleaning Machines

If you are looking for a simple and cost effective way to show your commitment to your team’s safety, look no further than automated tank cleaning machines. If you are still using confined space entry for manual tank cleaning, there is a better, safer way.

Manual cleaning is the process of entering the tank and manually cleaning with a hose, pressure washer, squeegees and/or brushes. While manual cleaning does prove to be a semi-reliable method, it poses some major drawbacks. Manual cleaning:

  1. Is time consuming
  2. Allows an opportunity for human error
  3. Has high associated labor expenses
  4. Poses confined space entry dangers

While consistency and cost savings are important, employee safety is one of a facility’s greatest concerns.

The Safe Choice

Certain confined spaces pose dangers such as hazardous atmosphere, material that could potentially engulf a person in the space, slanted walls, and sloped or tapering floor that could trap or asphyxiate an entrant. The best way to avoid the associated hazards is to eliminate them altogether.

Automated tank cleaning machines effectively clean all types of tanks and eliminates the need for confined space entry for manual cleaning. Additional benefits of automated cleaning are:

  • Reduced labor rates
  • Greater regulatory compliance
  • Reduced time spent cleaning
  • Consistent, repeatable and high quality clean
  • Less waste

Automate Without the Expense

Impingement cleaning devices offer state-of-the-art cleaning technology, but can carry a hefty price tag. If you are looking to eliminate manual cleaning, but don’t have money in the budget for an impingement device, you should consider a rotary spray device. They can accomplish your tank cleaning objectives at a fraction of the cost.

With more than forty years in the industry we have seen trends come and go. But, safety has been on a steady incline for years. Whether it is new regulations on food safety and processing environments, more stringent sanitary process component and equipment standards, or a higher demand for safety program documentation, both employees and consumers demand safety. So, safety is here to stay.
