Cleaning of Road Tank Vehicles
Technology of the cleaning

the cleaning process is divided into several phases; the concrete cleaning method depends on the product that is being cleaned:

  • ​​Steaming 
    Medium pressure steam (pressure 0.8–1.2 MPa, temperature 190–230°C) is fed inside the container.
  • ​​Rinsing with warm (hot) water: 
    Rinsing is conducted using water with temperature of 60–90°C and pressure of 1-1.5 MPa. The hot water is sprayed inside the container using a rotating nozzle.
  • ​​Rinsing with cold water 
    Rinsing with cold water with pressure of 0.45 MPa and 1.6 MPa is conducted for the purpose of cleaning some products or cooling down the container after hot cleaning. If needed, solvents can be used and manual cleaning or final manual treatment conducted.

If needed, solvents can be used and manual cleaning or final manual treatment conducted.

We don´t clean tanks under  asphalt and liquid sulfur.

The offer does not include cleaning the surfaces of tanks.

Price of the cleaning is governed by the valid price list and it depends on the cleaning time and number of cleaned chambers. We issue a European Cleaning Document (ECD) after each cleaning.

The steam station has two newly reconstructed stands for cleaning tanks of road tank vehicles.

Cleaning time 
The cleaning time depends on the number of cleaned chambers, transported substances and customer requirements. The average sufficient cleaning time is approximately 30minutes.
