Oil Tank and Fuel Tank Cleaning

Commercial Fuel Tanks are generally found in mission critical installations where avoidable downtime can cost significant amounts and have serious negative environmental impacts.

Why it’s Important to Clean your Commercial Fuel Tanks

The main cause of Fuel Tank contamination is water condensation. This leads to a build up of microbes in the fuel which can clog up the filters that lead to money-wasting loss of efficiency in the heating systems.


It’s also possible for microbes to actually consume some of the fuel oil inside your tank, affecting the total amount of fuel oil that’s available to power your boiler.

Both these natural processes are common and contribute to fuel tank wear and tear which affects its performance and shortens its useful life with obvious environmental implications.


Cleaning your commercial fuel tanks is essential to ensure that your fuel storage system is safe, efficient, and effective. There are several reasons why it’s important to regularly clean your commercial fuel tanks:


Prevents Contamination: Dirt, dust, debris, and water can accumulate in your fuel tank over time, which can contaminate the fuel and lead to engine problems. Regular cleaning removes these contaminants and ensures that your fuel is clean and free from impurities.


Maximizes Fuel Quality: Clean fuel is essential for the efficient operation of your equipment. If your fuel is contaminated or contains sediment, it can clog filters, reduce fuel efficiency, and cause engine damage. Regular cleaning ensures that your fuel is of the highest quality and will operate at peak performance.


Improves Safety: Dirty fuel tanks can pose a safety hazard. Accumulated debris can increase the risk of fire or explosion, and water in your tank can lead to microbial growth, which can cause fuel contamination and release harmful toxins into the air. Regular cleaning ensures that your fuel storage system is safe and reduces the risk of accidents.


Saves Money: Regular fuel tank cleaning can help you save money in the long run. Dirty fuel tanks can cause engine damage and reduce fuel efficiency, leading to costly repairs and higher fuel consumption. By cleaning your fuel tanks regularly, you can improve fuel efficiency, reduce engine wear, and save money on fuel and repairs.


In conclusion, cleaning your commercial fuel tanks is essential to maintain the quality and safety of your fuel storage system. Regular cleaning ensures that your fuel is clean, efficient, and safe, which can save you money in the long run and prevent accidents.
