Industrial Tank Cleaning Robot

Rachel Doornekamp   |   September 27, 2019

Clean, readily available water is absolutely imperative for our health and well-being. A massive part of water maintenance is the regular cleaning of storage tanks. Over time sediment from particles and minerals in the water sink to the bottom of the tank, eventually creating a thicker sludge which can impact both the quality of water and the structural integrity of the tank.

While cleaning is necessary to maintain tank health, it can be an incredibly difficult and expensive task involving tank draining and divers. Deep Trekker’s DT640 VAC provides a simple, cost-effective solution to tank cleaning. The fully submersible crawler boasts a 360 degree turn radius, 8 hour battery life and various attachments. Using a handheld controller, the ROV is easily maneuvered without prior training.

Read on to see how the DT640 VAC allows for easy, safe and regular tank cleaning.

Avoid Contamination

The DT640 VAC can be easily decontaminated with a chlorine solution prior to entering water tanks, allowing operators to completely avoid issues of contamination. Safely and efficiently remove sediment from tanks while keeping water clean and in service.

Remove Divers

ROV’s allow divers to be protected from going into dangerous situations. Furthermore, removing divers from the equation means that you can avoid wait times and scheduling issues. As mentioned above, a ROV like the DT640 VAC also allows users to avoid contamination issues, unlike a dive team.

Avoid Downtime

Often operators are required to drain the tank either partially or completely for cleaning, taking the tank out of commission for days, or even weeks, at a time wasting valuable time and money. With an ROV, tanks can be cleaned without interrupting service. Avoid downtime and keep your bottom line happy.
