Once new potential clients understand the safety benefits that come with replacing human divers with robotic tank cleaners, they are eager to explore options for change. However, we all live and work in the real world, so one of the first questions that always comes up goes something like this: “how will robotic tank cleaning affect my budget?”

Or, to put it a different way: “does it cost more to use robots for tank cleaning than humans?”

The short answer is almost always “no.” To get into the details, though, there are a few things you have to understand…

Costs are Comparable

In most situations, the cost of getting robotic tank cleaning with Sciphyn is comparable to what you would spend on a team of human divers. Although our quotes are based on tank size, sediment level, and other location or industry-specific factors, that would be true of any vendor.

While you might not spend more to contract with us, though, the savings you’ll realize throughout the process can be significant.

Your Production Schedule Won’t be Affected

There are two important things we like new clients to know about robotic tank cleaning. The first is that we have a 100% safety record since no humans are performing dangerous work. The second is that a tank or facility can continue normal operation while we clean.

This can be a huge advantage in many situations, particularly when production shut down costs go through the roof. Because our robots can withstand chemicals and high heat while generating no turbidity, you don’t have pull back your schedule to have us work.

Your Team Won’t be Rushed

Hiring a human crew for industrial tank cleaning usually means having employees, vendors, or both working 24 hours a day to get the job wrapped up as quickly as possible. That can cost businesses huge sums in overtime pay. More importantly, it can lead to a rushed atmosphere where fatigue sets in and mistakes are made. Then it’s only a matter of time before injuries and accidents occur.

Because our robots can work in the background while you operate normally, these costs and risks are eliminated.

You Can Save on Materials and Additives

In many instances, it’s standard practice to drain a tank of chemicals or additives so humans can safely clean within. However, our robots aren’t affected by those substances, so there isn’t any need to remove them during cleaning. That can translate into big savings on materials and other substances.

In the same way, we use special pumps and filters to remove sludge, sand, and other sediment from fluids. As a result, we don’t generate wet waste and can significantly cut down on disposal expenses.
