If you work in the asphalt business, you understand that asphalt storage tanks of all kinds need cleaning to keep performing their best. You may know all the rules regarding when to clean out the asphalt storage tank, and you know that now is the time to seek a professional asphalt storage tank cleaning service. Here’s what Jet Blast Inc. can do for you in Maryland.
Cleaning the Asphalt Storage Tank
The asphalt manufacturing process calls for multiple tanks to hold, develop, and preserve the asphalt mix. In some cases, it may be better to remove the excess asphalt manually, but other times, what sticks to the bottom is so sticky that you need a special way to remove it. At the same time, you must consider safety. A confined space like an asphalt tank is no space to crawl into carelessly. What’s the best way to go about it?
No-Entry Is an Option
Today’s technologies allow industrial tank cleaners to operate cleaning tools from outside of the tank. The process can be manual, semi-automated, or automated. The worker still has a great deal of control over the cleaning process, but is much safer being outside the tank. Even so, one must take precautions, and Jet Blast Inc. does this through safety training, continuing education, and practicing safety measures on the job.
Is Water Blasting Appropriate?
Water blasting is one of the cleanest, most powerful ways to perform asphalt storage tank cleaning. Water jet blasting crews target the toughest grimes using the appropriate psi and water blasting nozzle. Jet Blast also uses the most advanced technology of today for the best result possible. Water blasting, unlike chemical cleaning, does not leave a residue that needs rinsing off with water. It is “one and done,” with water jet blasting.
Vacuuming and Disposal
A water jet blasting company can also take care of waste disposal. The crew can vacuum, transport, and contain flux oil, as well as vacuum, transport, and dispose of waste asphalt. Learn more by contacting Jet Blast Inc. today!
