3.2

Valves on outlet manifold are opened and connected with flexible pipes to waste storage facility or recycling tanks for tank cleaner

3.3

All hatches are opened, spray balls are placed into tanks after visually checking tank condition, and solid materials present are washed out with high pressure water, prior to starting cleaning cycle

3.4

Tank is rinsed, washed with tank wash until waste is clear and recycled into a holding tank for reuse, leaving tanker tank to drain

3.5

Water in holding tank is topped up, ph is tested and solution is replaced as required in accordance with workplace procedures

3.6

Tank is rinsed with water in short bursts until liquid leaving tank is clear

3.7

Top of tank is hosed off again with water, and spray balls are removed

3.8
