Tank & Vessel Cleaning, High Pressure Jetting & Chemical Decontamination

ERG are arguably one of the UK’s leading tank cleaning experts offering a solution for even the most complex scenarios.

Our tank and vessel cleaning team offer bespoke solutions based on the client’s objectives, analyse the tank contents, consider the project site and any environmental impact. We advocate safe working practises and remotely assess the scenario before adopting man entry techniques. Where these are required however, you will have the peace of mind that we use only the latest safety equipment and apparatus. 

Ultra High Pressure (UHP) Water Jetting

The introduction of ultra-high pressure (UHP) water jetting has increased the types of work that can be carried out successfully using this cleaning method. 

UHP works at pressures up to 60,000 psi (4000 bar) and speeds of Mach 1.5 and requires specialist knowledge and experience to harness its full and powerful potential. Our bespoke solutions continue to solve problems for our clients that had previously been too demanding for more traditional methods.

ERG has a number of other techniques and applications for water jetting which include;

  • Tube bundle cleaning
  • Tube bundle cleaning using rigid tube lancing systems
  • Cold cutting tanks and pipework
  • Internal cleaning of pipes
  • Robotic tank cleaning using rotary spinning heads
  • Surface preparation for painting or coating
  • Hydro demolition (concrete cutting)
  • Floor cleaning
  • Graffiti removal
