Dry or Wet Storage Tank Cleaning Services

The build up of residue that can form on the inside of storage tanks can reduce the volume of available storage, can cause weight distribution problems causing component failure and can cause contamination in the stored material.

For these reasons, tanks used in agricultural, food, oil and chemical industries require planned cleaning schedules to ensure the safe and reliable use of these tanks.

At Balmore Contracting, we provide Tank Cleaning services for dry and wet storage tanks along with the silo cleaning services that we provide across Scotland and the north of England.

Tank Cleaning is important to:

  • Reduce product clotting and clumping
  • Remove food contaminants
  • Eliminate biohazard risks
  • Protect against insect infestations
  • Clean residue build up
  • Maximise tank storage capacity
  • Maintain product freshness

The free movement of material stored in a tank is essential for the efficient operation of the storage vessel. This prevents clumping and clotting where material adheres to the sides of the tank walls and bridging which can cause blockages at the tank evacuation point.

Infestations

Store product insects (SPI) are a range of insects which are commonly found in silos and can infest dry stored foods. These include:

  • Khapra Beetles (an invasive species worldwide
  • Weevils (another type of beetle)
  • Biscuit Beetle
  • Grain Weevil
  • Confused Flour Beetle
  • Saw Toothed Grain Beetle
  • Larder Beetle
  • Silver Fish
  • Mill Moths

At Balmore Contracting, we are able to clean all types of commercial storage tanks and similar storage vessels including silos that are used for flour, wheat, salt, chemicals and similar dry and wet goods.

As one of the UK’s leading difficult access cleaning specialists, we are able to access these confined spaces to scrape and clean away deposit build ups that can cause equipment damage and contamination. We use vacuum, brushes and scrapers to ensure the safe and thorough cleaning of interior surfaces in tanks.
