Tank Cleaning Applications- Oil & Gas Industry

Tank Cleaning Devices from John Brooks Company Limited are ideal for a variety of applications in every processing stage. Working hand in hand with numerous companies in the oil and gas industry, we’ve developed a full line of tank cleaning equipment that covers a vast spectrum of applications, from drilling on land to offshore, from the equator to the arctic.

Oil sludge, also called tank bottoms, are sediments forming at the bottom of an oil tank, reducing valuable storage capacity. In crude oil storage tanks, the sludge is a deposition consisting of high-molecular-weight paraffins, asphaltenes, water and inorganic solids.

The sludge needs to be removed periodically, not only to restore storage capacity, but also in order to:

  • Comply with inspection policies that require the tank to be free of any sludge.
  • Avoid clogged suction lines and damages to downhole refinery equipment.
  • Change the product of the storage tank.

Give us your most difficult tank to clean—we’re up to the challenge.
