Tank Cleaning System Reduce Turnaround Time

Monday, December 23, 2002
Based on Norway, Scanjet is a world-leading supplier of tankcleaning-machines (guns) to the marine market with deliveries to VLCC's, product tankers, chemical tankers, drilling rigs and supply vessels. The machines, which cover the tank surface completely by vertical and horizontal rotation of the nozzle, have proven to be - especially in the North Sea - extremely efficient.

Traditionally, vessels are equipped with two nozzles machines, which Scanjet has managed to override. The company has developed a new generation of offshore tankcleaning machines with just one nozzle. The machine boasts four different programs (pitch adjustments), which can establish, if needed, a dense track or a coarse/open track, which cleans the tank in approximately three minutes. The drive unit is situated outside the tank, which gives low wear and reduced spare part-consumption.

Scanjet's machines are equipped with a unique magnetic (patented) coupling system, which eliminates any leakage between the turbine and the gear/drive unit. This system is especially helpful in the chemical tanker market, since oftentimes problems can occur during cleaning with a cargo that penetrates and coagulates in the gear unit/machinery. Scanjet's magnetic coupling system eliminates this problem completely since the cleaning water (or mud) can be re-circulated without any problem, thereby reducing slop to a minimum. Scanjet also supplies a purpose developed cleaning chemical (Scanjet Rig-Cleaner), which is an effective and often needed tool for achieving a totally clean tank.
