Not only does Raptor® Tank Cleaning eliminate employee’s exposure to hazardous environments and materials, it minimizes damage to railcars and can be used on all types of tanks, including rubber lined and painted. It is designed to quickly and safely remove heel from acid, asphalt, crude oil, vegetable oil, animal fat, and most products that require dig-out.

Raptor® system with state-of-the-art Safety protection and Touch Screen controls


Designed with end-users in mind, Raptor® Tank Cleaning System has a powerful yet simple to use software that enables programming of specific cleaning procedures and processes for different railcar types and products to ensure consistently cleaned tanks. Touch screen controls increase operator productivity by allowing them to easily control and monitor the system from a handheld device such as a tablet or smart phone, while they complete other tasks. The Raptor® Tank Cleaning System’s software also allows management to monitor station activity to improve overall through-put and scheduling.

Raptor® Tank Cleaning System utilizes the Bottom Outlet Valve (BOV) which makes for simple containerization to ensure easy, safe, and efficient transfer and disposal of the heel and cleaning solution.


Whether you are looking for a fixed base or mobile system, Raptor® Cleaning Systems can be designed and engineered as a complete turn-key solution or integrated to capitalize on your existing infrastructure and operation. Built with IP69K Food Grade Stainless Steel, the Raptor® Tank Cleaning System wash head is durable, eliminating maintenance costs and downtime that is associated with traditional spinner-jet systems. Regardless of which options you choose the typical return on investment (ROI) is very quick and our Raptor® system is guaranteed to meet your requirements!
