Not only does Raptor® Tank Cleaning eliminate employee’s exposure to hazardous materials and environments, 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.

Designed with end-users in mind, Raptor® Tank Cleaning has 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 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.

Reclaimed product has value, and if your railcars contain materials that could be re-used or recycled such as vegetable oils and animal fats, we can include an in-line filtering system.  In addition to reclaiming products, the Raptor® Tank Cleaning system has the unique ability to utilize the tank’s original liquid as cleaning solution.  This environmentally friendly and cost-effective option minimizes and often eliminates the need for cleaning chemicals and their costly disposal.
