Abbey Logistics opens non-food grade wash bay in Liverpool, UK

UK food grade road tanker Abbey Logistics has announced plans to open a non-food grade wash bay at its tank cleaning facility in Liverpool, UK in February.

The company’s cleaning station provides tank cleaning services to both their own and other haulier’s tanker trailers. Abbey has operated its own wash bay facilities in Liverpool and Hull for over 20 years, with the facility in Liverpool previously being exclusively food grade.

According to Abbey, due to significant demand for more non-food tank cleaning capacity in the region, the company has converted one of the bays to exclusively wash non-food grade products. It can now provide cost-effective cleaning to both accompanied and unaccompanied tanks.

The new non-food wash bay, which is completely separated from food grade wash bays, will provide tank wash services to any haulier from non-food grade, non-hazardous products.

The new bay is isolated from the food grade washes and operates on a separate cleaning network to ensure no cross contamination. Wash bay operatives will also work exclusively on food or non-food and will not be able to access any other bays, which will further enhance wash integrity.

Additionally, all wash equipment such as lances and hoses will operate exclusively in their own area.
