Robotic Sludge Removal for the Industrial Industry

Industrial facilities have extensive sludge removal needs, but also have a very high potential for injury and waste because of the specific needs of their operating environments. Water and fluids need to be stored in spaces that are clear of sediment, while toxic or corrosive substances can be prevalent. Robotic micro-dredging offers an ideal solution. It allows robots to be put in spaces that would be too tight or dangerous for human divers and cleaners. Additionally, it allows for fluids to remain undisturbed during the process, so both existing chemicals and products (for example, rubber pellets) can remain without having to be lost or replaced.

Robotic Cleaning Benefits

Why Use Robots to Remove Sludge in the Industrial Space

  • Our robots can work in spaces that would be otherwise hazardous or impossible to reach, including cooling towers, sumps, clarifiers, and retention pumps. We can also evaluate and clean a variety of tanks, including stormwater tanks, firewater tanks, wastewater tanks, and potable water tanks.
  • With attached cameras, our robots can map areas for sediment, debris, and structural integrity. That allows for more reliable quotes and even technical certifications.
  • Robotic cleaning can proceed on a 24 hour per day schedule, without any breaks, even in dangerous conditions. 
  • With existing materials being left undisturbed or recycled, and facilities in full operation, there are no expenses associated with waste for robotic cleaning.
  • Remain in full operation – no shutdown and no turnaround. Our robots remove the sludge and can return the filtered water or chemicals back to the system so there is no need to shut down.

Take a look at this video to see how we use our robots to remove the sludge from a fire water tank while it remains in full operation.

We removed the sludge from this stormwater ditch without draining it at a chemical plant in Louisiana. We pumped the sludge directly into 25-yard rolloff dewatering boxes. Multiple boxes were filled each day and hauled off for disposal the next morning. The filtered water was returned to the stormwater ditch.
