Tank Cleaning Robot

Faster cleaning - faster turnaround of tanks

Robotic tank cleaning eliminates the time needed for setting up scaffolding. The Tank Cleaning Robot (TCR) is equipped with magnetic tracks to reach all areas of the tank, while an operator is controlling the system remotely.
The Robot and High-Pressure System are easy and quick to set up. Overall, the Tank Cleaning Robot will do the job in a matter of days instead of weeks.

Environment friendly

The TCR cleans product tanks using pure fresh water. The water can be heated up to 90 degrees, eliminating the need for chemicals.

Less cleaning water

TCR cleaning minimises the amount of water used, hence the amount of water to be pumped out after cleaning

Easy to control - Safety of operator

Only 2-3 people are needed to clean an entire tank. The operator stands at a safe distance with a remote control in hand. Scaffolding is eliminated, and so is the risk of falling from heights.
