To complement the tank cleaning division KHIDMAH Industrial Services can offer a total range of supplemental services:

Pipeline Decontamination

Using either a pigging system or chemical flushing system.

Waste Brokering

KHIDMAH Industrial Services take this to our network of oil re-processers to get a competitive price for the waste generated on our client’s sites. If the unwanted oil is above a certain standard KHIDMAH Industrial Services can potentially get a return on the oil. Please see Credentials for a copy of our current Carriers and Broker Licence.

Water Treatment

Occasionally KHIDMAH Industrial Services are asked to provide a water treatment system on its own or in addition to the sludge treatment to remove impurities from water giving the client their water back safe to go to drain.

Sampling and Quantifying

Often we find that tanks have been stood for many years and that the contents or paint composition are unknown using UKAS accredited laboratories and a suit of analysis KHIDMAH Industrial Services can ascertain the contents and provide a most appropriate disposal route, if our clients require it.

Lead Contamination

KHIDMAH Industrial Services work with tanks which have contained leaded products such as lead petrol and are fully versed in the special safety precautions required.

Air Conveying

KHIDMAH Industrial Services have the technology and experienced staff to provide a product/waste transfer using diesel driven vacuum equipment.

Silo Cleaning

Blockages in silos happen and KHIDMAH Industrial Services have experience with the mechanics to unblock and clean the build-up of hardened product within them using minimal entry techniques.

Concrete Breaking

KHIDMAH Industrial Services can use a number of methods to cut concrete in to accurate sections for safe removal should our clients require it in hazardous areas.

All our services are carried out in the safest method available and in line with the ever changing legislation, the operators are trained for the use of the all equipment they will be using. This includes confined space, working at heights, the use of breathing apparatus (RPE) and bespoke training on the use of KHIDMAH Industrial Services equipment and plant.

Catalyst Handling


Catalyst Handling

Using our vacuum equipment, all fitted with spark arrester and chalwyn valve for safety, KHIDMAH Industrial Services can offer a full range of material handling services for a range of industries.

The emptying and recharging of the catalyst reactors or towers can result in a significant amount of downtime if not managed correctly, the use of the correct air conveying technology with experienced operatives can reduce this time ensuring the cost of the recharge is at a minimum. Good working knowledge of the systems available is also vital as if breaking, chipping or spalling happens to either the bed/topping media or catalyst carriers in the hopper this can reduce efficiency and therefore increase operating costs over the lifetime of that particular fill of the hopper.

KHIDMAH Industrial Services have invested in a system for discharge and recharge of catalysts including a filter hopper for easy, safe and mess free filling of waste containers, and can offer a cost effective waste brokering service to make the process more efficient. This coupled with the diesel vacuum unit fitted with spark arrester and chalwyn valve and with a low noise level gives the safest and most efficient method of discharging the catalysts and its support media.

Lagoon Remediation


Lagoon Remediation

Many industries have the need for lagoons, ponds, basins or pits for stabilising the wastewater inevitably created in the site processes. The lagoons have a variety of applications such as settling ponds for separation of solids, API lagoons for separating oil and water, aeration basins for biological process’ and also simply pits for storage of waste/slop oils. These then provide water which can then be re-used in the process on site and require maintenance on a regular basis to ensure their effectiveness.

Depending on the purpose of the lagoon, its size and the environmental considerations KHIDMAH Industrial Services have a selection of approaches to removing the sludge which inevitably builds.

Mounting a Molex pump on a pontoon with a fixed length suction hose is an effective method, especially if the priority is not disturbing the sludge. The pontoon is operated from the shore by hydraulic winches meaning there is no requirement for anyone on the water.

Hydraulically operated dredger with pump can be used in most applications where agitation of the bed and the re-suspension of a small proportion of the solids is not an issue. The dredger is remotely operated as the dredger is tracked along the floor of the lagoon.

Mechanical removal (digger) is necessary where the sludge is very dense and the pond is not part of a system loop so high disturbance is not a concern.
