Road tanker and container washing

Machinery and personnel specialising in foodstuff tanker cleaning and sanitisation.

Tank truck washing

When transporting a liquid product in large quantities without having been packed, the most convenient and economical is to transport it in a tanker.

Regarding the cleaning of cisterns of food products, this must be different to cleaning cisterns that have transported dangerous goods, basically due to their possible contamination. A washing of food cisterns must be carried out using non-toxic products and suitable for a correct washing.

For this reason, washing in a center with specialized workers in the sector is the most advisable to avoid any kind of problem and contamination that could be caused.
