This new operation features the Raptor® Tank Cleaning System, which aims to “eliminate human-confined space tank entry by incorporating automation and robotics to guarantee a superior clean.”
Raptor® is located in the Midwest to service customers—including those following Kosher practices—and it can handle any amount of heel, even in excess of 10,000 pounds. The system aims to minimize cleaning time, maximize shipment volume and reduce freight costs.
“The Raptor® was developed and engineered based on years of industry experience,” said Founder and CTO Scott Tinsman III. “It utilizes robotics and automation to ensure the complete removal of heel and build-up from hopper and tanker railcars. This safe, economical and unique cleaning technology removes the need for anyone to enter a tank while it contains product. The Raptor® handles liquids, solids and sludge in all types of hazardous, non-hazardous and feed-stock materials including acid, asphalt, crude oil, vegetable oil, animal fats and tallow.”
“Our Raptor® Tank Cleaning System typically cleans a tank in hours, allowing a railcar to return to service in days, not weeks,” said Charles (Chip) Lee, Jr., Twin State Environmental President.
