An Effluent pit catches the waste of either a single storage tank or a group of storage tanks (Find out more about our Industrial Tank Cleaning Services).
For this particular client (based in Birmingham) – we also cleaned their chemical storage tanks (5 in total). When cleaning a tank, pit or vessel, we use ultra high pressure jetting equipment to utilise very powerful streamed jets of water.
When a tank has been cleaned, solids and sludge (waste) accrues. Solids are physically removed, but sludge and waste water are drained to an onsite effluent tank, essentially catching all waste.
Bio Clean Jetting, for this portfolio entry are cleaning the effluent pit. As you can see from the video below, our highly trained technician is utilising high powered pressurised water jetting to break up the sludge, waste water whilst another technician helps extract it.
We then legally, remove and take the waste to a licensed waste outlet – in line with all environmental and legal requirements.
Effluent pits and Tanks need to be cleaned out at regular intervals to prevent failure and a possible effect on your productivity. Sites of a commercial nature (such as this one) gather and accumulate lots of waste (see the video below).
Having your effluent pits regularly cleaned will ensure your tanks, pumps and other very expensive technology stays in excellent working order, vastly reducing expensive replacement costs.
Bio Clean Jetting have the ability to clean open pits or enclosed Tanks.
