In refineries and petrochemical plants, crude oil, fuel oil, and hydrocarbon product storage tanks accumulate oil sludge at the bottom, causing corrosion, pyrophoric hazards, and reduced capacity. Prior to conducting inspections, calibration, maintenance activities, and specialized tank cleaning for highly flammable hydrocarbon are required.

At INSEE Ecocycle, we are constantly looking to improve our performance, be it safety, technology or faster turnaround. This has led to our latest development in tank cleaning services. Our robust technology is able to significantly reduce downtime and the need for human entry into tanks. Our crawler robot is ideal for cleaning in confined spaces during the sludge removal process. The main goal is to keep the operators at a safe distance from the risk zone, especially in ATEX Zone 0 areas but also in other conditions. We’ve developed a robotic tank cleaning solution that offers best-in-class safety while speeding up the entire cleaning process. With the operation personal at a safe distance, the robotic tank cleaner easily navigates in the tank, sucking the difficult sludge. What’s more, INSEE Ecocycle can handle not only the cleaning, but also the sludge removal, transportation of materials and final disposal. This makes our tank cleaning solution a seamless process that is both faster and safer than traditional methods.
• No-man entry, no personnel is inside the tank during sludge removal operation
• Operator in a safe area away from the tank
• Low safety risk, high productivity
• Quick start, simple operations within hazardous and limited spaces
• Accurate and precise interventions
• Uninterrupted operations
• Robot is equipped with suction hose for removal of sludge
• Hydraulic system operation/available with diesel and gasoline
• Equipment is movable pass through 24” tank manhole.
• The robot control by manual distributor with CCTV system (able to be controlled from outside)
• Can work in dark condition; installed LED around the camera eyes.
• Zone 0 explosion proof certification.
