Directions for use

Immediately after use the cargo has been discharged , the tanks should be flushed with cold water to prevent polymerisation and evaporation of the lighter fractions. Whenever possible, the cleaning solution of 0.2-3% in fresh water should be heated to 60-80°C. However, the polymerising nature of some natural oils demand lower cleaning temperatures.

Dosing method
The most economical method to use Unitor™ Alkleen Liquid™ is by direct injection followed by recirculation washing by using tank cleaning machines.

If this method is not possible, use of other methods such as recirculation or hand spraying.

When changing refrigerated cargoes the need may arise to clean holds to remove animal or vegetable fat to santise and deodorise before the next cargo. A solution of 5-10% in fresh water can be used for this purpose, and may be sprayed on and rinsed off by using hot water and high pressure.
