A CASE FOR EFFECTIVE AND ECONOMIC TANK WASHING

The Belgian company of Toftejorg A/S has been involved in the manufacture of tank cleaning equipment for the marine industry for many years. In seeking to improve the effectiveness and economy of tank washing, a number of other companies have concentrated on researching methods of applying cleaning liquids to the inner surfaces of tanks. Toftejorg, however, has concentrated on the design of the spray nozzle, the mechanics of liquid flow over the tank surfaces and the identification of optimal cleaning patterns. The company contends that use of the methods and equipment that it has developed can save 1.8 days per year for performing ten crude oil washing operations on a 100,000 dwt tanker with ten tanks.
