Co. which stay in various provinces. Dimensions of storage tanks cleaned by us are changed between 3000 m3 and 80.000 m3.
Our Cleaning Stages:
Manhole covers are opened (top and bottom), and are atttached blower fans on the both two covers and fuel vapor is evacuated. Fuel vapor in the tank is measured by explosimeter (light audible warning device which measures the hazard limit). When flammable gas rate comes from down of 5% and oxygen rate increases higher than 20%, gas discharging work is terminated and cleaning work is started. Blower fans are operated until the end of the work. The permissible level of fuel vapor is measured continuously with explosimeters. For all electrical equipments and tools are used explosion-proof equipments. 3 people are sent into the storage tanks after dressed metal free overalls, gas masks, boots, helmets and vest. One of the staff has a duty to constantly check on the outside of the tank as a safety chief. One of the staff constantly checks explosimeter and the staff. He closes 30 meters pedestrian area around the tank for vehicular traffic and deploys vehicles in such a way that they will not handicap for the intervention of firefighters. Safety belt and grab line are kept close by tank manhole. Brush, shovel, putty knife, rakes are made from non-sparking material to be used in the tank. The residue of waste material are transferred by pumps to hazardous waste carrying vehicles and is transported to disposal facilities.
