12 BULKDISTRIBUTOR Depot Services November / December 2021

In its long history the Zimmermann group has developed into an international processor of a variety of waste flows . With over 450 employees spread over eight locations , Zimmermann offers a wide range of solutions . The construction of a tank cleaning and IBC cleaning facility has enabled Zimmerman to add new services . At the site in Bitterfeld , Germany , nonflammable liquid waste materials are handled in a physical-chemical treatment facility . These substances are delivered by road tankers , and cleaning these heavily polluted tanks is not easy . This resulted in the plan for a modern tank cleaning system for handling self-owned and third party vehicles . The existing wash hall for exterior cleaning was converted by Gröninger into a tank cleaning bay . All cleaning technology is situated in three technical containers . Tanks can be cleaned with 50 to 150 bar , hot water up to 95degC and with a choice of three different cleaning chemicals . Besides the high pressure equipment the scope of delivery included an air purification system with gas scrubber and active carbon filters . A separate stainless steel booth was built for cleaning IBCs . The IBCs are turned upside down by using a smart lifting mechanism and are easily cleaned and drained using this technique . In Bulgaria , Gröninger has also kitted out what is said to be the first professional tank cleaning station in the country ’ s capital city , Sofia . Designed to meet the latest requirements in the market , the Uventrans depot is now officially open and fully functional . The site has two cleaning bays working in alternate mode , steam options and offers many other cleaning related

But , after a process of more than four years all permit issues have been overcome , and Uven Tank Cleaning station has now been SQAS assessed , is allowed to provide ECDs and is Kosher certified , setting a new tank cleaning standard in Bulgaria . Back in 2004 Van Moer Logistics started cleaning tank containers and bulk trailers in
Melsele . In 2008 , when the head office in Zwijndrecht opened , Van Moer expanded the services for bulk and tank logistics . Finally , Van Moer , in Zwijndrecht , Belgium , invested in an upgrade of its system , bring in state-of – the-art technology to ‘ future proof ’ operations . Since the start of 2021 Van Moer ’ s existing cleaning system has been running at capacity , and the decision was taken not only to renovate the cleaning plant , but also to expand it with more
