Specialist equipment for wet and dry industrial cleaning

DISAB high flow industrial tanker

Our DISAB high flow industrial tanker is a versatile piece of equipment and a valuable addition to our services. This machine is able to vacuum recover a varied range of wet or dry products.

With a high volume suction capacity, the telescopic flexible boom system allows collection of products from vertical silos, tanker storage vessels or distance ground vacuums of up to approximately 110 meters, depending on product.

Felbinder 40 Cube Suck and Blow Powder Tanker

This specialist tanker is designed for smaller low level powder spill collection. The benefit with this is that once the spill is collected the product can be blown back into a silo or transported away from site for disposal at a location of the customer’s choice.

Silo Whip System

The Silo Whip System is suitable for the majority of bulk Silo and storage systems, it is designed to be used remotely through an access opening point at the top of a Silo or Bin Storage system, so there is no need for operators to enter the potentially dangerous confined space of a bulk storage system.

Product blockages within the Silo/Bin can significantly reduce the storage capacity and efficiency of the running of your storage system, to the point where a blockage can cause a costly shutdown. With the Silo Whip System we offer a safe and fast solution, which ensures that any blockages or product build up on the inner sides of the Silo or storage system, can be removed and cleaned in a safe and controlled manor.

Site assessments and safe working

Before any work can be carried out at a customer’s location, a site assessment will be carried out by a member of our Vac Team. This is to assess your requirements so we can set out a Safe Working Plan and achieve a cost-effective environmental solution for you.

All our Vac team have been fully trained with the Disab operations, and hold ECITB Approved Course in Confined Space Working Level 2 Medium Risk, and Working at Heights.

Product removal and disposal options

Once the product is collected we can offer various options for removal. We can tip onto designated floor areas or using the high tip system fitted to the machine we can tip into mobile skips for ease of removal. We can also blow products collected into a vessel such as a silo or tank at location.

With suitable powder products, we can also supply a high cube Powder Tanker to site which blows the powder into the tanker, for disposal to a location of your choice or routed by ourselves. This is the most cost effective and environmentally friendly way of removing and transporting bulk powders.

The High Tip system also offers an option for most types of dry products which have been vacuum collected. We can then transfer the product from the Disab direct to Bags for ease of removal from site with no environmental issues.  If products cannot be bagged directly by our Disab High Tip System, we have a mobile bagging plant that can be deployed direct to your site, suitable for both dry and wet products.
