Avoid Downtime and Save Money With Our Fuel Tank Cleaning Services
As they say, prevention is often better than the cure and when it comes to fuel storage tanks, it’s no different. A poorly maintained and neglected industrial fuel storage tank can be dangerous and expensive to restore back to compliant standards. Without regular cleaning, over time, fuel contaminants can decrease a tank’s integrity, leading to an increased likelihood of spills.

We have the knowledge, experience and expertise to clean any size and type of tank, regardless of your location within the UK.

Why is planned preventative maintenance of fuel tanks important?
It should be an essential part of any planned preventative maintenance programme to help reduce the risk of fuel contamination, sludge build-up, tank corrosion and environmental damage.
Sludge build-up can block the tank’s outlet which makes the vessels dangerous, damaging their efficiency and harming the stored contents. Our engineers can handle everything from start to finish, minimising any environmental impact or disruption to your services.
Before any work can begin, your fuel will be tested at our onsite laboratory to determine the condition of your fuel system. We’ll then we’ll advise you on the best course of action in a detailed report. For example, if your fuel contains a small number of contaminants, we may be able to polish it back to optimum performance.
In most cases, we’ll uplift your fuel and reimburse you for your contaminated supply then deliver a fresh batch straight into your newly cleaned tank. This is often the most cost-effective route to take.

Industrial Tank Cleaning FAQs
What does tank cleaning involve?
Before a tank can be cleaned, our engineers will visit your site, discuss your requirements and inspect your fuel storage system to determine the most cost-effective solution. This ensures we can diagnose and repair any storage tank faults with minimal disruption.
We will also take samples from the top, middle and bottom of your tank to determine the condition of your fuel system. We can then advise you on the best course of action in a detailed report.
In most cases, we’ll uplift your fuel and reimburse you for your contaminated supply before performing the full tank cleaning, then deliver a fresh batch straight into your newly restored tank. This is often the most cost-effective route to take.
What happens if my tank is too corroded to clean?
We will never conduct a tank clean if your tank is too corroded or badly damaged as this would be a waste of time and money. Instead, we could recommend replacing it with a compliant tank to ensure the stored products do not leak into the nearby environment.
Is tank cleaning safe?
Crown Oil Environmental’s engineers are highly skilled and experienced, with all the appropriate confined space qualifications to work safely in high-risk environments. They are equipped with all the necessary PPE, gas monitoring and emergency rescue equipment, as well as the required risk assessments and method statements.
