Tank Cleaner

Modified version of the Lombrico and Gatto Mini Robot Excavators, specifically created for safe works in ATEX Zones.

The Tank Cleaner category, which includes the ATEX versions of Lombrico and Gatto made by Gerotto, consists of Mini Robot Excavators suitable for cleaning storage tanks with very tough and sticky sludge.

The removal of this sludge was usually carried out putting 12 or 18 people inside the tank, where they use water lances to wash it and shovels to collect it and pull it out. In the case of the Lombrico, the frontal part is equipped with an Auger to collect this thick sludge and to pump it back out into a vacuum truck or into disposal bins.

Thanks to this robot it is sufficient to have only three workers to prepare and control the machine from the outside of the tank, far from the hazardous environment.

Why choose it?

There are many advantages in using Tank Cleaner robots, among these:

  • Considerable reduction of costs for cleaning operations;
  • Increase of productivity;
  • Reduction of shut-down time;
  • Simple operations within hazardous and confined spaces;
  • Reduction of manpower;
  • Safeguard of the worker’s health.
