RXSOL-20-3300-025 successfully replaces the traditional cleaner , this product is safer for use, storage and transportation and reduce your costs by 10 – 15%. This product dissolve and loosen deposits in the TANK and increase the permeability layer zones to mix with water.
This is a very strong polymer based cleaner which can be used to soften up / remove baked on drying oils. It is low toxic product with an exceptional solvency power on soil & oily matter. It is free from hydrocarbon solvents, Biodegradable minimizes the extreme hazards to personnel in handling materials.
it finally dissociate slop emulsion to separate oil and water .This provide us with ability to dispose of waste solution
Suitable for cleaning of Heavy oils, Black oil, Mineral oil Products. Phthalates paraffin's vegetable oils Odour intensive products.
Using-Procedure:-First of all flush the system with cold water to prevent evaporation rates and polymerization then the most economical method of using RXSOL-20-3300-025 is by direct injection followed by recirculation washing, using tank cleaning machines.
Spraying Method:-Using RXSOL-20-3300-025 as delivered in drums, spray onto areas where residue remains following rough washing leave for 10-45 minutes (but do not allow to dry), then butterworth at maximum pressure and warm water 60oC for at least 3 hours, checking that there is no foam remaining in the final stages. Inspects tanks(s) and if desired result has been achieved fresh water rinse and dry.
**Make sure to take all safety precautions are followed when handling / spraying RXSOL-20-3300-025
Injection Method:- Not applicable.
Re- Circulation Method:- Fill tank with fresh water and heat up to warm 50oC . IF a drop line is available on the tank line system, then start to circulate the water and add the required amount of Caustic flakes and RXSOL-20-3300-025 to make a 2.5% solution. A stronger solution can be made, but be advised that too much Caustic and too high temperature will result in white powder all over the tank. Under normal circumstances, between 2.5% and 4.5% will be sufficient strength. If there is no drop line, then lower butterworth hoses into the tank from the pump stack header without machines attached and circulate through these hoses while you fill the solution material.
Other Popular Method for TANK CLEANING :::
Tank Cleaning Sludge/ Lube Oils / Slope-Black Oil
1 ) Fill the tank with 1-35 litres per ton wash water.Best results are obtained when water is heated to a temperature between 65°C & 80°C then stripped constantly and transferred to a holding tank for separation.The time for this will vary depending on amount of RXSOL-20-3300-025 used & nature of oil being cleaned.Generally,12 hours should be sufficient before the water phase can be removed.
2) Direct Cleaning.Spray directly RXSOL-20-3300-025 on tank surfaces to be cleaned, left for at least 30 minutes.Finally wash with hydrogating (high pressure) machine. Hot water between 50°C & 80°C recommended.
**Use a strainer at the pump stack when circulating any solution.** Tank Lining%u2013 Stainless / Epoxy / Phenolic.
Necessary concentration in water only 0,2 to 0,4 %
Oil and Sludge remover
RXSOL-20-3300-025 is also recommended for local cleaning & degreasing of engine rooms, bilges & tank tops. It may be applied by brush, spray, immersion, soaking, or any other conventional means.RXSOL-20-3300-025 is used neat. Allow a residence time of at least 20- 45 minutes where possible, to ensure good penetration & emulsification. Finally wash the system with hot water & high pressure.The emulsion residue after cleaning must be allowed to separate in a holding tank for atleast 3-5 hours before passing through an oily water separator.
