Robot Setup Plan View

The cleaning system consists of a remotely controlled robot and a high pressure pump with a 3-D cleaning head. The robot can position the 3-D cleaning head at any point along the centerline length of the tank allowing effective cleaning of difficult to remove commodities from the entire interior surface. The robot is designed for remote operation inside the tanker truck so that entry of personnel is not required at any stage of the operation including insertion and removal of the robot.

The robot is designed to clean tanker trucks of any length ranging from 56 to 66 inches in diameter. The robot can pass through manways as small as 15 inches diameter and sets up remotely once inside the tank. The robot is constructed of stainless steel and aluminum weighing approximately 250 pounds with the cleaning head. An operator remotely controls the movement of the robot between each cleaning position.
