Commercial and Industrial Fuel and Oil Tank Cleaning

Getting your commercial fuel or oil tank cleaned is essential as water, sludge and microbes can develop inside your oil or fuel tank over the course of months or years, contributing to a wide range of problems that can affect your tank’s performance and safety.

In some cases, sludge and microbe build-up can contribute to a total failure of your fuel tank — a serious situation that can be challenging and expensive to repair.

OFTEC Trained Professionals

As OFTEC trained fuel and oil tank professionals, our team can check the contents of your commercial or industrial tank and, if required, carry out a full fuel tank cleaning process to remove any water, sludge or microbes that has collected inside the tank.

Our fuel and oil tank cleaning services are available for businesses and organisations of all types and sizes.

The Importance of Cleaning Your Fuel and Oil Tank

It is important to have regular tank cleaning as condensation can cause water to build up inside your commercial or industrial tank over the course of several months or years, causing fuel contamination and leftover sticky residue in the tank.
Although this is a common process, it can contribute to extra wear and tear on your fuel tank that affects its performance and shortens its useful life.

What Does Our Oil and Fuel Tank Cleaning Service Include?

We want to ensure that our fuel tank cleaning services are thorough and leave your fuel tank in the best condition to continue heating oil for your business.

Here are our fuel tank cleaning methods:

  1. Mechanical Agitation: Scrubbing tank surfaces with mechanical devices or brushes to dislodge and remove sludge and deposits.
  2. High-Pressure Water Jetting: Using high-pressure water jets to break down and remove stubborn deposits from tank walls and corners.
  3. Chemical Cleaning: Introducing specialised cleaning agents to dissolve sludge and contaminants, making them easier to remove.
  4. Vacuum or Suction Method: Using vacuum devices to extract debris, sludge, and liquids from the tank, suitable for various viscosities.

These methods offer effective ways to clean fuel storage tanks, and the choice depends on factors like the fuel tank’s condition and the type of substances stored.

Heating Failure of Your Oil or Fuel Tank

In some cases, this water build-up can cause microbes to grow inside the fuel that’s stored inside your tank. Excessive amounts of microbes can result in the filters inside your fuel tank becoming clogged, leading to issues with your commercial heating system.

It’s also possible that contamination issues can lead to microbes using up some of the oil inside your tank affecting the total amount of oil that’s available to power your commercial boiler.

Our commercial and industrial tank cleaning services allow you to take quick action when your tank has a build up of bacteria or dirt, helping you avoid breakdowns of your oil tank, eliminate inefficiencies and creating a cost effective solution to getting your tank completely replaced.
