All Industrial Storage Containers must be cleaned regularly Wherever production takes place on a big scale there will be some form of waste – often in the form of sludge. Therefore sludge tank cleaning will be part of ongoing maintenance for companies whose activities include production and related systems. So many processes during production have as one of their results waste materials and sludge; these – the waste and sludge – must be disposed of, and if the sludge is formed in, or kept in, a container, then certain steps need to be taken to dispose thereof. Many industries have to deal with sludge during their day-to-day activities and the disposal thereof is one of the ongoing maintenance tasks. To get rid of sludge in a controlled manner – i.e. sludge tank cleaning - requires the assistance of professionals such as engineers and technicians who are trained and experienced in dealing with such issues. Cleaning these sludge holding containers often requires specialist processes that involve certain specific cleaning processes; simply cleaning a container with water – even with proper systems – may not always be good enough and additional processes such as the introduction of chemicals may be necessary. Once chemicals are introduced during the cleaning process, other issues need to be considered, one of which is safety of the environment, the tank(s), the site where cleaning takes place and, of course, the people in the area. Sometimes sludge tank cleaning may be hazardous, especially in confined spaces, and explosions, even fire, may be a real concern. Therefore specialist teams are needed to take care of all aspects of the process, to make sure the tanks are properly cleaned and that the process is carried out according to the regulations that govern health and safety in the workplace. Industries that often use these cleaning services range from small to medium, large and multi-national companies with representation throughout the country and further afield. Examples that refer include the oil and petroleum industries, food production, water purification systems, agriculture, construction, the military and cleaning processes run by local councils, for example. Sludge tank cleaning needs to be a priority for all of the above, and all other manufacturing bodies. As is the case with all maintenance services, industries and companies need to know how to get hold of the correct firm for their maintenance and cleaning needs. The best of these firms employ the best staff, engineers and cleaning teams to assist those companies that benefit from their service.


Most of them are found in industrial areas of cities and regions. Some may even have an office space where they will meet clients away from their site. Many advertise their services on the internet so that it really is never difficult to find and compare companies and their services. Sludge tank cleaning involves a number of processes which all, once finished, leave the client’s tank clean and good for use again. One of the processes involves separating materials and substances in the tank in order to save recyclable materials and/or substances that range from solids to gases. The whole process is often broken down in sections which are all applied for the successful outcome of the cleaning. Some of these include typically processes whereby suction, recirculation and separation are applied. A lot depends on the needs of the client and also in terms of what skills exactly the service provider offers in terms of sludge tank cleaning. Therefore the client should always be sure that he/she has called in the services of someone fit for his/her purposes. Not all companies offer exactly the same services. Use someone who is right for you. Talk to other people in your own industry and ask around – find out whose services come highly recommended.
