Imperial expands Krems cleaning capacity

Imperial Chemical Transport GmbH has opened a third cleaning bay at its facility in Krems an der Donau (Lower Austria).

Following the addition of the new bay, Imperial said it is not only able to clean tankers and tank containers there, but also silo vehicles and tipper trucks. Special features include automated cleaning for dispersions and synthetic resins by machine, where the water and cleaning agents are recycled; this provides major improvements to the interior cleaning process and reduces water consumption and manual cleaning work.

When removing any chemical residue with water pressure of 8 bar and a temperature of up to 90 degrees Celcius, only certified, environmentally-friendly cleaning agents are used. By using special mixtures of water and cleaning agents, the recycling system can handle as many as 80 procedures before the elements need to be replaced. This is possible because the cleaning mixture, which is fed into the tank at the top, is collected at the bottom, pre-filtered, reheated and then used again for further cleaning procedures. The waste water is then processed in line with the latest technology and the remains of products are disposed of in the proper manner.
