ITW has developed and patented a novel technology for tank cleaning which transforms sludge into a fully reusable product.
ITW technology operates on a closed loop basis, thereby eliminating airborne emissions which are typical from mechanical cleaning.
As compared to mechanical cleaning, ITW technology accounts for a return on investment in terms of:
- Hydrocarbons recovery and reprocessing
- Waste disposal costs reduction
- Airborne emissions elimination
- Cleaning time reduction
- Operational safety improvement
- Tank availability improvement
By operating with a no-man entry technology and by recovering the sludge from the outside of the tank, ITW technology make possible the cleaning of tanks which are normally not cleanable under conventional technologies (i.e. tanks with corroded roofs, with collapsed roofs, with structural problems, etc.).
