Liquid storage tanks, biogas digesters, and other industrial tanks need regular cleaning to operate efficiently. Over time, sediment can accumulate in your tank, forming a thick layer that impedes production and compromises the quality of your liquids.
At Bristola, we’ve developed a cost-effective, zero-human entry alternative to traditional tank cleaning. Our system eliminates the need for manual cleaning and tank draining, keeping your employees safe and saving your company money.
Check out our Submersible Robotic Cleaning System in action:
The traditional tank cleaning process can be challenging and expensive. It typically requires you to drain your tank, causing costly downtime. Plus, you must find a temporary storage solution for new materials created while your tank is offline for cleaning.
Once the tank is empty, it requires manual cleaning. In many cases, employees enter a confined space in a harsh work environment to clean the tank. Manual entry puts employees’ safety at risk, with increased exposure and chance of injury.
Bristola’s zero-human entry cleaning system solves the financial, logistical and safety problems associated with traditional digester and industrial tank cleaning. Our system replaces the existing manhole cover on your tank so that our remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) can enter through the new maintenance hole. Your tank or digester can remain full while our ROVs clean, and no one will have to enter the tank during the process.
Our zero-human entry alternative reduces exposure and protects employees. It also eliminates production downtime, saving your company time and money. Your tank will operate on a superior level without the hassle of traditional cleaning methods.
Bristola also offers a unique entry portal that is placed on the manhole of tanks. This entry valve can be adapted to fit any any manhole 24 inches in diameter or greater. Once the portal is placed on the tank, it can accept the Bristola entry box and open and close access to the tank. Installing this portal will allow Bristola to easily re-enter and service your tank for years to come.
