Bristola – Submersible Robot Cleaning System
Save time. Save Money. Save Lives
About the Company:
Bristola operates with one mission in mind: to revolutionize the capture of renewable gases by providing a safer, more efficient, and economical solution for cleaning liquid storage facilities that will successfully reduce their operational downtime and carbon footprint. To accomplish this Bristola has created a system that cleans liquid storage facilities with no human entry and no costly downtime.
About the Solution:
Bristola's technology, the Submersible Robotic Cleaning System (SRCS), allows the cleaning and inspection of tanks and covered lagoons without disruptions to their operational system. This is accomplished by sending a remote-controlled submersible robot through their patented entrance system directly into the liquid storage facility for cleaning and maintenance.
Their full-service proprietary cleaning system works to maintain and keeps liquid storage facilities in excellent condition for superior output and performance. This system also evaluates, stores, and reports data about your facility’s condition and performance to improve efficiencies.
The SRCS installs on new and existing tanks/lagoons and operates while tanks/lagoons remain in operation. With this proprietary technology, no human entry is required, and the overall optimal capacity is maintained.
Routine cleaning is essential to the health and productivity of your facilities. To that end, Bristola’s cleaning system is strives to solve the financial, logistical, and safety problems often associated with traditional cleaning methods.
Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
Anaerobic Digester Associated Technology:
NOTE: There are several technology types that are used as part of an integrated manure management system that includes an anaerobic digester and are not applicable to manure management in other cases. The impact of these technologies on the critical indicators are represented as those of an entire anaerobic digester system.
- Long usable life and can be run reliably
- Creates energy and generates environmental credits
- Requires proper preparation of the feedstock
- Requires other technologies for energy utilization
- Requires other technologies for digestate handling
- Proper feeding & system monitoring is required to avoid system downtime
- Proven technology for odor control, GHG reduction and pathogen reduction
Bristola has recently been added to the Newtrient catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with Bristola to further refine the cost and performance information on their solutions. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come online.
