Robotic system for tank cleaning and storage tank maintenance

KOKS ESOT robotic system for tank maintenance

koks robotics esot robotic system for storage tank maintenance

The KOKS ESOT-system is designed for heavy industrial applications and is suitable for no-man entry tank maintenance in order to eliminate the need for personnel to enter a hazardous environment. ESOT is the acronym for equipment set for oil tank cleaning. The ESOT-system is utilized in combination with a vacuum truck for discharging and transporting fluid and hazardous substances, such as liquids, sludge, fats, oils, fuels and chemicals. Specially developed for working with hazardous and contaminated substances, the robot is certified for ATEX (Ex) zone 0. The transportable, vented cabin (TVC) is available in a standard container, an ATEX (Ex) zone 1 and zone 2 version and built in accordance with all applicable safety standards.

Usage
The KOKS ESOT-system enables its user to clean the ATEX zone 0 without a human entry of the ATEX zone 0 itself. Commonly used for the cleaning of black and white oil storage tanks, the health, safety environment and quality improvements are undeniable.

Characteristics
The powerful patented, abrasive, magnet tracks of the ATEX certified robot enable this versatile system to move with ease through the contaminated tank. From the vented cabin every movement of the robot can be controlled and seen on a HD television screen. The robot, which is connected to the vacuum truck, will enable large quantities of (fluid) substances to be processed in a short time and then be transported in accordance with current ASME/ADR (CEOC) regulations. The user benefits from significant time savings and a huge reduction in cost.

Versions
The KOKS ESOT-robotic system can be fitted with various option kits that are appropriate for your needs and/or for industrial applications.
