Fuel tank cleaning

Terminal fuel tank cleaning was LCM’s core service when the company was founded back in the 1980s. Today it’s still a critical part of the company’s industrial services to its client partners. Whether an above or below ground tank, a bulk terminal tank, an IBC or a tanker, regular cleaning will keep your facilities and your fuel in peak condition.

Why is fuel tank cleaning necessary?

Prior to cleaning, fuel stocks are either run down to tank bottoms only or up to 8000 litres can be uplifted to one of LCM’s multi-pot tankers. Contaminants on the tank bottoms are removed using specialist hoses connected to a vacuum tanker. Finally, the tank is jet washed, dried and inspected.

Fuel tank inspection and cleaning

Depending on the type of fuel tank, cleaning can be carried out remotely under the guidance of a PetroScope camera. In some situations, a manned entry clean or the use of LCM’s high pressure GammaJet is required.
