Case Studies

Robotic Rover Tank Cleaning

Objective
Vertex’s client had requested a complete internal tank cleaning . Upon initiating the cleaning process, it became evident that the tank emitted dangerously high levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). These VOCs posed a significant risk to workers entering the tank, complicating efforts to maintain safe working conditions for confined space entry.

KEY ISSUES IDENTIFIED:

  • High VOC Emissions: Significant off-gassing during cleaning, leading to elevated VOC levels.
  • Safety Concerns: High VOCs created hazardous conditions for tank entry.
  • Ventilation Challenges: Frequent depletion of organic media scrubbers due to high VOC levels.
  • Cost Implications: Substantial daily accrued costs from replacing scrubber cartridges.
