Case Study


A rubber plant needed to remove iron oxide deposits from the large tanks where they store organic compounds used in production.


Our team chose a chemical combination of citric acid, an inhibiting agent, and nitrogen, applied in accordance with specific guidelines, to strip the iron oxide deposits from the tanks without causing any damage to the surface underneath. The team completed the cleaning by neutralizing the acidic residue with an environmentally friendly solution, making the waste safe for processing through the plant’s own treatment facilities. Our team also used automated tools to apply the chemical solution.


By using remotely controlled 3-dimensional tools, we eliminated the need for confined space entry, significantly reducing hazard exposure and accelerating the speed of cleaning. We also reduced the volume of cleaning chemicals required by maintaining a minimal reservoir for the task at hand. The client was thrilled with the cleaned condition of the tanks as well as the cost reductions over previous providers.
