SEDA TankDrillingMachine

When drilling into potentially explosive environments, performance is nothing without safety. The SEDA TankDrillingMachine has been university tested and declared risk free and passed easily the strict European ATEX certification test for machines used in potentially explosive environments.
The air powered machine drills into the vehicles fuel tank sucking out fuel at up to 20 liters per minute without spilling a drop and virtually without fumes. A series of filters and the optional fuel quality control ensures that the drained fuel is as clean as it can be. After drainage, the perfectly uniform hole can be easily plugged preventing residual drops of fuel contaminating your yard.
The reliable air powered drill and specially designed drill bit make light work of metal or plastic fuel tanks while the powerful vacuum unit sucks the drilling head flush against the fuel tank, creating a seal, eliminating petrol fumes and allowing a drainage rate of up to 20 liters per minute. The drilling process itself only takes a few seconds.
