Tank contamination can be detrimental for workflows and wasting materials and so, is something every client we work with is looking to minimise where possible. To help you understand more about what steps to take to prevent tank contamination, we have rounded up some advice below…

Tips to prevent tank contamination in industrial environments

Industrial tank maintenance

Industrial tank maintenance is a key practice in preventing contamination within tanks. By having a team responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the tank, you can feel confident everything is being handled and monitored correctly. Failing to implement a tank maintenance programme could result in leaks, broken tanks and contamination of materials remaining in the tank.

Cleaning when refilling storage tanks

Properly cleaning storage tanks prior to refilling is an essential part of preventing tank contamination. Removing any residue and thoroughly cleaning the tank with high power water jetting machinery is advised. In some industries where non-entry tank cleaning is required it is advisable to speak with a specialist team with knowledge of hazardous materials.

Tank inspections at regular intervals

Undergoing a tank inspection at regular intervals, such as 3-5 years, will ensure that the tank is properly working, and any damage is recorded. These inspections should be carried out by a specialist with an understanding of potential problems with large industrial tanks. We recommend working with a tank inspection company for this and having a thorough reporting process. 

Work with a tank cleaning expert

By working with a team of tank cleaning experts you can feel confident that the risk of contamination is minimised, and should this occur, you have a knowledgeable partner on hand to help resolve the issue. Tank cleaning experts will cover a range of services including cleaning, removal and disposal of materials and general maintenance.
