Scanjet SC 15TW GL is a tank cleaning machine specially developed for cleaning of tanks in harsh environments. Tanks with volumes up to 5000 m³ can be cleaned by a single unit.

Typical installations are onboard offshore supply vessels, drilling rigs, barges, chemical carriers, product carriers or industrial processes – all types of installations where solid particles are, or can be, found in the cleaning medium.

The size, construction and cleaning requirements of these tanks are our design criteria, which will be evaluated prior to installation and operation.

The SC 15TW GL can be used either as a fixed installed machine, installed on a down pipe, or as a portable system to be used in different tanks/vessels, mounted on a hose with a supporting hose saddle.

Working Principle
The cleaning medium flows through the machine to the nozzles and into the tank, cleaning all surfaces with powerful high-impact jets. The flow passes the turbine which starts the rotary motion of the gearbox. This movement creates a criss-cross pattern on the tank walls, covering 360° of the tank.

The first cycle creates a wide ‘pre-wash’ pattern on the tank walls, while the following cycles create a denser pattern until a full program is reached after four complete cycles.

The gearbox is oil-lubricated and sealed from the cleaning media.
