Field area double bottom, deep and wing tanks etc, used for fuel oils. It can also be used for local cleaning and degreasing of engine rooms and on deck.
Highly concentrated product only ½ to 1 litre of RXSOL-20-2002-210 required per tone of water, when ROCK and Roll tank cleaning method adopted. Refer below ‘ Dose ‘ block to view complete method.
Tank cleaning detergent marine chemicals
Seaclean is one of popular tank cleaning and degreasing chemicals. We are keeping ready stock of materials at our Visakhapatnam – Gangavaram, Kolkata – Haldia, Chennai – Ennore, Mumbai, Kandla Deen Dayal Port, Mundra, Fujairah, Dubai, Sharjah.
RXSOL-20-2002-210 is an extremely effective liquid blend of concentrated emulsifier with penetrating agents,mild abrasives and wetting agents which makes this an excellent liquid scouring cleansers for cleaning and degreasing of double bottom,deep tanks etc which is used for fuel oils It can also be used for BOILERS,MARINE DIESEL ENGINE COOLING WATER SYSTEM and for local cleaning and degreasing of engine rooms on deck.
Direct Injection Method for Tank cleaning through Seaclean :
Dose value of seaclean can varies depends up on contamination and deposition of oil on the surface area. For tank cleaning ‘ direct Injection Method ‘ also one of the popular method. In this method, neat SEACLEAN can be injected directly from the drum through air-operated drum (barrel) pump. During this method this barrel pump can be connected to the pressure side of the automatic tank cleaning system line. Barrel Pump can be fixed at a predetermined rate as an injection rate of 0.1 0.2 liter SEACLEAN per 100 litres of tank wash water is sufficient. Cleaning time 2-6 hours. Finally wash and rinse the tank with water.
Direct Hand Spraying Method some time becomes necessary for cleaning of the heavily contaminated tank. On the other hand, we can also say that expert always selecting hand spray method before going to any other tank cleaning method to make there job easy. Expert shortlisting all tuff and heavily contaminated area and directly spraying neat Seaclean all over soiled areas. Then they are following another method like direct injection method, Recirculation method, Rock and roll method etc…
Recirculation Method for ship tank cleaning –
1) First of all heat the remaining oil in tanks .
2) By stripping constantly. flush the tank with sea water,
3) Close all suction and discharge valves .
4) Then make solution seaclean with water with percentage ratio of 2-6% SEACLEAN ( 2 Ltr to 6 Ltrs in 100 Ltr Water ) concentration value can be increase as per cleaning demand and contamination and condition of tank. Circulate cleaning solution via the automatic tank washing system pump and heater to the tank to be cleaned, wherefrom the solution is returned to the chemical solution tank via the stripping line. The same solution can be repeated for 2 – 3 tanks, then new cleaning solution required if same solution repeated for more then 2-3 tanks. Finally after recirculation the tanks should be rinsed thoroughly with sea water or fresh water depending on availability and requirements.
Rock and Roll Method at sea cleaning for double bottom tank:
Use Handgloves, Goggles and safety mask before using in Tank. Keep container tightly closed and away from direct heat, fire and sunlight.
SEACLEAN dilution ratio 1 or 3 litres per ton of water, allow to reduce gas freeing operation double bottom, deep, and fuel oil tanks. In general, practice diluted sea clean used together with mechanical Butterworth washing equipment to clean tank and gas-freeing operation.
Machinery engine room cleaning chemicals. Due to higher industrial cleaning strength of seaclean, It can be use as a cleaner of bilges, pump rooms and machinery parts and many more oil effected area. Seaclean contains emulsifier with penetrating solvent it can be apply for wide range of applications.
For heavy contaminated bilge area use SEA CLEAN directly on soiled area and give fiew minutes to get full emulsification process, This will helps to flush bilge area completly with water. Otherwise for light contamination dilute sea clean with water ( If possible hot water ) then spray on surface to get clean completely.
Industrial concentrate strength of Sea clean effectively works on lubricating oil, fuel and soot particels deposit in engine exhaust system. As seaclean contain petrating solvent to eliminate Soot and Oily Residue from exhaust system. Availability of Seaclean on working station not only reduce mechanincal cleaning operation but also Minimize Hull & Abrasive Cleaning which is damaging finishes of all deposited surface area. Soot particles and unreactive unburned fuel oil are trapped by the filter medium and reduced to carbon dioxide and water vapor. To obtain good result periodic cleaning must required. SEA CLEAN org plays a very important role in such cleaning.
RXSOL seaclean is formulated for cleaning double bottom, deep and wing tanks used for petroleum fuel oils. Aromatic chain compound have special feature and its chain bonding in molecules are very strong, so its cleaning always required special type of cleaner.
Our team is continiously working on daily problem faced by customer, and observed that after using of SEA Clean all oil base compound are emulsifed and cleaned out. But if tanks / vessel are required complete removal of hydrocarbon even traces, smell from tank surface then repetition of tank cleaning through RXSOL-16-1011-210 .
Directions for Use and Dose Rates: RXSOL-20-2002-210 is specially formulated for cleaning double bottom, deep and wing tanks etc, used for fuel oils. It can also be used for local cleaning and degreasing of engine rooms and on deck.
Soak Method: for heavy soil put parts into undiluted RXSOL-20-2002-210, for general soiling use a solution of 10-30% RXSOL-20-2002-210 in water. Parts should be soaked for at least 30 minutes before washing off with water.
Spraying Method: Use neat RXSOL-20-2002-210 over all soiled areas. Allow 10-20 minutes for reaction , then rinse with high pressure water hose., Scrubbing will assist the cleaning operation for stubborn deposits.
Rock and Roll Method: Recommended time to clean and gas-free under normal circumstances would be 3-6 days ,for cleaning of double bottom tanks at sea.
1.First of all heat the remaining oil in tanks .
2.By stripping constantly. flush the tank with sea water,
3.Close all suction and discharge valves .
4.1stDose Fill the tanks by ½ to 1 litre RXSOL-20-2002-210 per tone of water through pipe or manhole, for 75-80% of capacity of tank to be cleaned.
5.Then fill tank to 25% capacity with sea water, raise the temperature up to 60°C maximum, and maintain this temperature for 24 hours.
6.Top up tank to 75-80% capacity with sea water, continue to heat for 48 to 72 hours.
7.Discharge and strip tank. Fill to 50-60% capacity with sea water and allow 2 hours rinsing time.
8.Discharge tank and strip, flushing tank with sea water for 2 hours,stripping continuously. When completed, inspect tank to ascertain if second cleaning is required. If so:
9.For completion add second dose of RXSOL-20-2002-210, fill tank with sea water 75-80% capacity and raise the temperature to 60°C maximum. Maintain this for 48 to 72 hours. And recirculate the solution .
10.Discharge and strip tank, flush with sea water, stripping continuously for 2 hours.
11.To gas-free, fill tank with sea water to overflow through vents and sounding pipes, discharge and strip completely
Pre-wash with Hot water ( 50 degrees C) is helpful before cleaning with SEACLEAN. This trick will help to remove excess of oil contaminates and also hot water releasing bond between metal and oil contamination. But never follow this step for crude oil, drying and semi-drying oils as these products can reverse cleaning effect with hot water. In this case, prewash with cold water should be applied to remove excess of oil from tank and metal surface area.
Highly concentrated product easily emulsify solvent and petroleum product. This products are classified as a degreaser and tank cleaner.
