Confined Space Entry

Mitigate the risks of confined space entry with ACS Specialist Cleaning Ltd

An innovative approach to cleaning in confined spaces

Working in confined spaces presents unique hazards and challenges, such spaces which may harbour hazardous gases or chemicals. Should these linger in the air, there is a very real danger that the worker can suffer severe consequences.  

Other dangers such as grain entrapment are frequently presented during silo cleaning. ACS Cleaning mitigate these risks by providing innovative confined space tank cleaning solutions that are specific to the type of plant and equipment.

No-entry tank cleaning for modern requirements

It is a well-known fact that lowering a worker into a confined space such as a tank or a silo is associated with a variety of hazards (such as those mentioned above). Thanks to our gyro-whip cleaning system, the human variable is taken out of the equation. This approach provides a completely safe means of remotely accessing the interior of such spaces while the ability to adequately remove all types of residue is never compromised. This is accomplished through the employment of a compressed air system in combination with specific whips and cutting heads.

The user can easily operate this mechanism while staying well away from any of the dangers that would come from the alternative man entry option.

We service tanks & silos across the country and our giro whip is the safest and most efficient method of silo cleaning.

The gyro-whip system

While silo decontamination is critical within the food industry, it is also just as important that all workers remain safe during the process. This is why our gyro-whip method is so very useful. 

How does gyro-whip work?

Employing pressurised air, the entire gyro-whip mechanism is lowered into the tank or silo and will subsequently clean the interior walls and mechanisms without risking damage to the more sensitive surfaces.

A variety of cutting edges can be attached to the cleaning head itself; providing guaranteed reliability even under the most challenging conditions. With physical entry no longer required, the levels of safety enjoyed by all employees have never been more thorough.

Who might need gyro-whip cleaning

Our Gyro-whip system can be used within a variety of different scenarios. Although silo cleaning is a common requirement, other applications include (but are certainly not limited to):

  • Bins
  • Hoppers
  • Storage tanks
  • Farming machinery (such as a slurry tank)
  • Dangerous equipment

By eliminating the need for confined space entry, we have drastically reduced both the chances of on-the-job injuries and the overall time necessary to complete the job.

Why might my business need gyro-whip cleaning

Maintaining tanks and silos is non-negotiable, especially in food and drink manufacturing, agriculture, power plants and the petrochemical industry.

Our gyro-whip cleaning service can:

  • Prevent cross-contamination from external pollutants or during product changeover
  • Remove blockages
  • Prepare tanks and hoppers for inspection

ACS provide specialist confined space cleaning services for tanks, silos, culverts, pipes and storage vessels.  To speak to our friendly team, get in touch on 01254 693 131
