Tank Car Cleanout Services

At Drumm Inc. we take time to determine the best wash and cleanout service for your tank car.  Depending on your specific circumstances, your rail car may require one or more cleaning processes to bring it back to your requirements. At Drumm, we provide a wide range of tank car cleaning services to cater to your needs. We take into consideration the scope of work, the commodities that the tank car was hauling, amount of heel, and the parameters of the customer’s cleaning requirements.

Tank Car cleaning options include the following:

  • Fogger Wash
  • Detergent wash
  • Caustic wash or boil
  • Kosher wash
  • Sanitize (hot water or chemical)
  • Steaming
  • Heavy Dig Out (heel removal)

Commodities that require Tank Car Clean Out Services

Prior to each tank car we take on we determine the type of commodity that it last hauled. Drumm Inc. can clean out various materials that have built up in your tank car over time.  Some of these include:

  • Corn sweeteners
  • Edible oils
  • Glycerin
  • Fatty acids
  • Lecithin
  • Flour
  • Beverages and alcohols
  • Fats and greases
  • Specialty chemicals

Recycling & Material Reuse of Bulk Materials

Properly disposing of liquids, oils, fats and other bulk materials is important to Drumm.  We have created partnerships with experts that maintain environmentally safe business practices where we are able to repurpose materials to keep them out of the landfill.  Our experience in this area helps to reduce waste and keep disposal costs low.
