Why you need a diesel tank cleaning service
Over time, diesel tanks accumulate sludge among other substances naturally. It is important that diesel tanks are cleaned regularly to avoid problems with functioning: such as hindering the flow of air due to the build-up of dirt, dust and grease.
A diesel tank cleaning service regularly shows an increase in the lasting capacity and prevents damaged diesel tanks from degrading rapidly, which an incur costly repairs.
Furthermore, optimal fuel quality and prime diesel tank performance are ensured after a tank cleaning session whereby the diesel tanks are transformed back to a pristine condition. Our team are experienced in diesel tank cleaning and have serviced the petroleum industry since 1982.
Diesel Tank Maintenance
Diesel tanks require maintenance just like any other piece of equipment. Did you know that sub-par maintenance is a frequent reason for a poorly-functioning diesel tank? If free water enters a diesel tank, it can cause a devastating explosion. We specialise in the maintenance recommend a professional, industrial cleaning service consistently.
Tanks should be drained entirely, annually, to check that chemical reactions such as oxidation and hydrolysis have not occurred. Both reactions cause a change in the colour fuel and have the potential to cause explosions.
The presence of water in diesel tanks will also determine if the tank is filled with microbes, which can create acid that leads to corrosion. We always use a biocide to avoid possible microbial growth.
Since 1982, we’ve had the privilege to provide our service in petroleum installations and maintenance to reputable companies and institutions such as Engen, BP Southern Africa, K & T Consulting, MAJ Projects, Kansai Plascon, UCT and Air Force SA.
