Metropolitan employs high-volume, low-pressure water to clean tanks from the outside if the levels of vapors inside prevent entry. Using high-volume trucks with 3D Heads and lances attached, our reach capability into the tank is approximately 50 feet. This allows us to quickly and safely flush the tank, remove flammable liquids and move sludge to a pick-up point.
Upon entry, the stream can split between two lances so the tank is quickly and thoroughly cleaned. To reduce the volume of water required, we use a unique micron-filtration system that allows us to filter the water generated and reuse it in the cleaning process which drastically reduces the amount of water used and contributes to the overall cost-effectiveness of the project.
Our fleet of API approved, industrial Liquid Ring vacuum tankers, pumps and equipment ensure the rapid, safe and complete removal of both solids and liquids from tanks.
