Maintenance Instructions (continued)
Lubrication and Cleaning (continued)
Interior Cleaning. The interior of the tank requires little cleaning if it is used for the same
commodity. If cleaning is required, fill the tank with approximately 150 gallons of a mild
detergent/water solution. Close off all openings and slosh the detergent solution back and forth by
alternately pulling the ends of the tank over the top of the tank. Drain the solution from the tank
and flush with clean water. Repeat flushing as necessary. Dry the inside of the tank with a large
volume air blower if the tank is to be placed in dry storage.
Inspection. The tank will be inspected weekly to ensure that the equipment is ready for operation
at all times. Through regular inspection, defects can be found and corrected before serious
damage occurs. Defects found during operation should be noted and corrected as soon as
servicing operations have stopped. Refer to Table III for inspection procedures.
