Robotic micro dredging is a new and exciting technology. As such, it’s something that gives executives and facilities managers a lot to be excited about. However, there are also a lot of misconceptions around the practice of using robots to clean industrial tanks and storage towers.

We know this because we didn’t only invent the technology behind robotic tank cleaning, but we also talk to engineers and business people about it every day. In the past few years we have noticed a handful of misconceptions that pop up again and again. In this post we want to take a few moments to clear them up.

Here are three things we want you to know and understand about robotic tank cleaning …

#1 It’s Not an Unproven Technology

Although the technology behind Sciphyn is cutting-edge and exciting, it is already being used by a number of industry leaders around the world. In fact, some of our robots are on their second-and third generation of development.

What this means to you is that we understand the process of tank cleaning and have developed the tools and procedures to carry out the job safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively. You don’t have to worry about being the first to try something new because our robots are already cleaning tanks and towers at dozens of other companies.

#2 It Won’t Cost You More Than Other Tank Cleaning Methods

Because we are using advanced robotic technology, many new clients tend to assume that working with us will cost them more than hiring a human team. However, that hardly ever turns out to be the case.

Not only is the pricing for our service comparable to what you’d expect to pay a traditional vendor, but the efficiency gains can be incredible. Our robots can work at all hours of the day without needing any equipment to be shut down or chemical additives to be removed from fluids. In other words, you continue normal operations while we get the job done.

#3 It Isn’t Just for Small Jobs

Our robots come in a variety of sizes, and can be configured with different pieces of equipment based on the size of your tank and the type or volume of sediment found inside.

We have worked with clients who have small, tight spaces that need to be cleaned and those with enormous storage tanks that require maintenance. No job is too large or small, and we specialize in finding custom solutions for every challenge.
