AMPOL Adds Tornado Tank Cleaning System To Service Range
American Pollution Control Corp. (AMPOL), a leading oil spill response and total environmental solutions provider, has added the Tornado Tank Cleaning System to its service range, announced President and CEO Kirk Headley. The system is an addition to the sandblasting, coating and painting equipment services offered by AMPOL.
The Tornado is a modern tank cleaning system that uses three stages of filtration to clean fuel and remove accumulated sludge—micro-organisms, water and sediment. While most tank cleaning units simply polish fuel without the ability to access the source of the problem, the Tornado System eliminates future problems and additional costs for removal, disposal and replacement of contaminated diesel fuel.
The Tornado achieves the sludge removal in three filtration stages; gross particulate removal, fine particulate removal and water removal. Approximate cleaning time ranges from 45 minutes for a 50 gallon fuel tank, to 10-to-15 hours for a 10,000 gallon fuel tank.
“At AMPOL we strive to improve clients’ profitability as well as their satisfaction,” said Headley. “We are proud to provide the Tornado System, a new business offering and sales tool that also happens to be the only one of its kind in the Gulf region.”
As a total environmental solutions provider AMPOL focuses on restoration, going beyond response and cleanup. AMPOL employs nearly 200 employees and offers oil spill response, tank cleaning, confined space entry services, naturally occurring radioactive material (N.O.R.M.) treatment and storage, lead and asbestos abatement services, insulation services, hazardous material (HAZ-MAT) emergency cleanup, soil remediation, demolition services, marine transportation and spill equipment manufacturing.
