Tristar PetroServ® has extensive experience in successfully cleaning retention ponds, basins, API separators, clarifiers, and lagoons while processing the waste for disposal. We have the capability and resources to design a cleaning system that meets the client's specifications and schedule. Our crews are highly trained at using various product removal technologies available, including dredging systems, submersible units, front-end loaders and trackhoes.
Our 2-phase and 3-phase centrifuges make the pond cleaning process more efficient by using a high-powered cylindrical bowl to separate solids from liquids in removed product. In 3-phase centrifuges, waste is broken down into water, oil and solids. The water layer is suitable for the wastewater plant and the clarified oil is repurposed as a recovered hydrocarbon. The solids are sent for disposal or additional processing at a cost savings to the client.
Belt and Filter Press
Depending on the project, we also operate belt and filter presses to process material.
