Is it possible to efficiently clean asphalt tank cars without excessive tank entry?

Yes. We have developed "non entry" cleaning methods for large crude/heavy oil tanks, as well as asphalt tanks in refinery applications.

To what cleanliness standard?
A HP steam Buttersworth cleaning will melt and wash out most asphalts. May have to follow with hot solvent in the Buttersworth-recirculating solvent until it gets too dirty.

Yes. Without question. Dimensions, images, isometrics, access points and deposit characteristics (in laymans terms) are required. We alone have over 12 different remote vessel cleaning technologies.
