Hot Tank Cleaning Shop


At TRAC Engine Services Ltd, our hot tank cleaning services can handle all your engine cleaning needs in Edmonton. Your diesel or natural gas engine components' cleanliness is crucial for the performance of your engine and its long-running life. We have two hot tanks, a parts washer and a high-pressure steam washer available for engine cleaning in Edmonton.


Our large tank can handle parts up to 3.4 meters in length, including the largest V-shaped engine blocks. The high-pressure steam washer we use at our facility to wash components removes unsightly, performance-robbing buildup, a normal consequence of all diesel engine and natural gas engine use.

A hot tank is a basic cleaning machine and is the traditional way to clean engine parts such as engine blocks, cylinder heads, and so on. The hot tank is simply a big metal tank with a very caustic hot water solution in it. The parts are submerged in the solution and allowed to soak for many hours, so the solution slowly circulates around them.

The hot tanks contain a caustic hot water solution that is capable of removing the heaviest oils, dirt and grime while stripping most paints from the ferrous surfaces. The engine parts are submerged in the solution for many hours, allowing all the internal galleries and passages to be completely cleaned. However, a caustic hot tank does not remove rust from ferrous items.


Aluminum Parts? No problem! We can clean all aluminum parts with the parts washer that contains a soap detergent or utilize our high-pressure steam washer. Either way, the parts will become clean without damaging the soft aluminum metal. Aluminum parts cannot be cleaned in a hot tank, because they would dissolve.

Cleaning engine with pressure water


We believe that repairing and rebuilding used equipment and extending the life of the machines will improve sustainability for future generations. Our hot tank cleaning and high-pressure steam cleaning processes remove the unsightly performance-robbing build-up, allowing the parts and components to be re-used in future engine rebuilds. This cycle of component life can be repeated many times over, as long as the metallurgy elements are intact.


Many people may think that engine cleaning isn't that important, but engine cleaning should be done on a regular basis. This is because an unclean engine will break down more often, and have lower efficiency with higher emissions. Engine cleaning can help you save a lot of money on engine repair and maintenance.

Mechanic working around tools


Heat reduction Engines generally heat up when working. An unclean engine will heat up a lot faster, reducing its performance. In addition, when the engine heats up quicker than it should, the oxidation of the oil accelerates, resulting in a reduction in overall efficiency.
Improves efficiency The dirt and impurities in your valves can make the oil denser, making it hard for oil to flow in the system efficiently. This causes higher energy usage for pushing the oil around, resulting in decreased efficiency. This can be reduced significantly with proper cleaning, and you will get a noticeable upgrade in efficiency.
Reducing emissions When your engine is clean, there will be nothing that will be causing hindrance in the flow of oil. Also, the oil will stay clean and pure, which will automatically reduce harmful emissions.
