These methods present numerous concerns; including confined space entry in a hazardous atmosphere and lost time due to extended cleaning durations. Safe and effective cleaning of railcars is crucial to maintaining regulatory compliance and financial performance.


Typical cleaning techniques vary but include hot diesel pre- wash or diesel steaming. This can take 20 minutes or in some cases 1-3 hours. Then lots of hot water pre-rinse, and lots of hot detergent washing using a various detergents, some of which can be pretty expensive.
