HOW IT WORKS...

PK will clean the tanks using specialized propretary chemicals:

  • SURECUT – The preeminent cutter additive that is effective with a variety of cutters, increases cleaning power & saves time & cutter volume.
  • PYROTREAT – Eliminate pyrophoric exothermic reactions by converting iron sulfide to iron sulfate.
  • KLEEN-SOL – The ultimate time save that safely & effectively penetrates, dissolves & removes heavy oil, asphalt, fuel products, paraffin & other organic material.

Once free of Hydrocarbons, PK will perform the tank inspections utilizing our mobile technology, intelliSPEC™ & immediately provide real-time reports to the client allowing for a faster turnaround time enabling the client to make crucial decisions creating both a short & long-term repair program.

Interior & exterior coatings will be applied using the latest technology for surface prep (Blastrac), thick coat liners (plural component) & other specialty coatings.

PK will handle all the safety & rescue needs throughout the entire process, utilizing our designated OHSP Safety Representatives.

PK will offer a proprietary software maintenance program that will inform the owners when future inspections come due & when inspections are complete in real-time for client review & action.

PK has the ability to merge all services into a complete Tank Management program, or offer stand alone services.

Significant savings on mobilization, cost and schedule may be achieved by utilizing PK’s All inclusive Solution or coupling stand alone service options that best suit your project.

PK Tank Services

Not only is this a significant savings in time “out of service”, there is also an associated cost savings in the cleaning, inspection, repair & coating of the tank. While every tank is different & timelines may vary, compared to the conventional approach, PK’s Tank Services can produce significant savings, depending on the appurtenances associated to the tank.

Conventional Method

Utilizing the conventional method for cleaning, inspection, repairs, safety services & coatings will require that the tank remain out of service for approximately 91.2 days.
