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.
