Tank Cleaning Services


Having a fuel tank out of action for any length of time can cause detrimental effects on business.
Pennine Pump & Tank make the process of cleaning your fuel tank as smooth as possible, ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum.


An internal tank clean enables the level of contamination to be thoroughly assessed.
Once the fuel has been extracted from the tank, excess waste water and solidified fuel components, such as the black sludge and slime commonly associated with Diesel & Petrol Bug, can then be removed.
A clean tank provides the best environment to maximise results when adopting a Fuel Maintenance Program to combat and control Fuel Bug contamination.


To ascertain that each project is completed efficiently and professionally, Pennine Pump & Tank agents provide all necessary documentation required by Health, Safety and Environmental legislation prior to undertaking any work.
This includes Risk Assessments, Method Statements and Tank Entry Permits.


Once completely cleaned, an internal visual inspection is conducted to check for any corrosion and to see if the plate is still fit for use.


Upon completion, you will be presented with a full report detailing the tasks carried out. Copies of all the necessary documentation provide an auditable summary of the project certification and you can be confident in the ability to refill your tank.
