RCI Tank Cleaning Solutions, a division of RCI Energy Group, offers industrial tank cleaning contractors the option to supplement their existing equipment inventory with our rental equipment.

Our Industrial Tank Cleaning Equipment

We offer the Lombrico S and XXS remote-controlled tractor crawlers, capable of taking vacuum hoses into confined spaces. Applications for the Lombrico include:

  • Cleaning industrial tanks
  • Under live conveyors
  • Pipes and culverts
  • Mining operations
  • Dry and wet plant-cleaning operations
  • High-temperature or hazardous fume applications
  • High-risk areas that threaten employee health and safety

Each intrinsically safe, double-tracked Lombrico unit uses hydraulic power and operates up to 240 ft [73 m] from the attached vacuum truck. The standard configuration allows for a 6” [150 mm] vacuum hose, but we make other sizes available on request.

All units carry mounted cameras and can include many optional attachments, including various-shaped suction nozzles, water-blasting nozzles, augers and material-moving blades.

The unit can operate remotely from our climate-controlled operators trailer or be provided as a stand-alone unit to fit specific needs requiring a minimal footprint and simple reset, as your job site dictates.
