The ECOS-ATC unit was originally designed for Drilling Fluid Tanks or “Mud Pits.” In various field applications, these tanks must be cleaned regularly to avoid a build-up of solids and to prevent cross-contamination of liquids, while changing fluid systems.
Traditionally, this “dirty job” was a manual tank cleaning operation. Field operators use to enter tanks and risk their health and safety from a potential exposure to harmful liquids and gases.
Back in the early 90’s, the use of directional and rotary nozzles was introduced for cleaning tanks. These nozzles are also referred to as Tank Cleaning Machines (TCMs).
In 2005, the first Automatic Tank Cleaning (ATC) system with wash-water recycling capabilities became the next evolution in this technology. Then, ten years later, the first mobile ATC truck was developed to service operations for dockside supply boats and land rigs.
Since then, ongoing research and development has led to even more effective and efficient tank cleaning technologies and methods. With each step, the ECOS-ATC team has collected in-depth knowledge and proven field experience, including “hands-on” knowledge from the most advanced onshore and offshore operations, worldwide.
And now, ECOS-ATC offers its customers the next generation of tank cleaning equipment for the oil and gas industry, and other industries. With over 25 years of experience, we are committed to our customers.
ECOS-ATC also offers a wide range of products and services. Our main product, the ECOS-ATC unit, is designed, certified, and manufactured to precision as a leading technological advancement for a variety of field applications.
