Tank Bottom SLudge Removal
ProGreen® Sludge Removal
Heavy Solids & Slurry Removal System
Our ProGreen® Sludge Removal System enables an ordinary vacuum truck to remove the heaviest solids and sludge from tank bottoms with minimal slurrying while simultaneously degassing the vapor space, scrubbing the vacuum truck and exceeding state mandates for VOC destruction/control.
The tank bottom solids can be pulled into the vacuum truck or vacuum boxes as per the job specifications. In many instances, liquids are “sheared” from the solids due to the high velocity and increased vacuum generated during our process allowing recovery of product and/or ease of transport.
Our system can remove the heavy of solids (85% solid) and sludge during tank cleaning, while simultaneously degassing tank and the vacuum truck exhaust.
ProGreen® Tank Bottom Removal with Vapor Destruction
Moving heavy tank solids without adding extra liquid means substantial savings in liquid disposal, tank cleaning costs and tank turnaround time. The tank bottom removal process actually liquefies certain oily solids for recovery of product and/or ease of transport in many cases. RSI can extract the heavy tank bottoms with minimal cutter material due to ProGreen® Technology. ALL VOC vapors generated by the extraction process are “scrubbed” or more appropriate described, destroyed to greater than 99 destruction rate efficiency (DRE).
VOC vapor control, tank cleaning, and heavy solids removal for any site where petroleum products are stored in quantity. These include ships and barges, vacuum trucks, storage tanks, railroad tank cars, pipeline wastewater, heavy sludge removal, truck and trailer loading, depending on state/local regulations.
