DTTA tank cleaning services are designed to meet the needs of the Australian market, Australian installation guidelines leave large amounts of room for interpretation with regards to bulk storage units accessibility.
Diesel tank cleanliness is the leading cause of system failure with regard to fuel supply. Bulk storage units often precipitate internally, leaving a layer of higher density moisture at the storage units base. Over time this moisture can cause heavy corrosion as well as promote the formation of sludge at the tank base.

In order to enter the storage unit, the removal of all stored fuel is required and specialist equipment required to enter the unit. This process is hazardous to the surroundings, the technician and requires the transfer of large amounts of fuel to a temporary unit to accommodate the inspection and cleaning of the tank interior.
