Tank Sludge Removal

Eventually you’ll have to clean the sludge from the bottom of your mixing tank or sludge pit.  Maybe you only do this if the sludge forces you to shut down production.

Or maybe it’s part of a scheduled facility shutdown.  Either way your employees will be happy that you’ll have a professional contractor perform the work… instead of them.
