Directions for use
Removal of soot from Inert Gas Systems (IGS)
- Apply Unitor™ Tankleen Swift with a Unitor™ High pressure Cleaning Machine and use 1:4 with water. However if used with a hand sprayer, apply the product neat on the surface, allowing 1 litre per 12 m2.
- Leave for about 30-45 minutes. The surface remains wet.
- Wash down with hot water (80 °C) and check the results.
- Repeat the procedure if necessary.
Removal of waxy deposits
Unitor™ Tankleen Swift can be used for tank cleaning after petroleum waxes and related products. Use a solution strength between 10-30 litres per ton wash water (1-3 %) and keep the temperature of the wash water at >10 °C above the melting point of the wax. To avoid any recoating of the tanks maintain this temperature during the cleaning and draining process. If the cleaning operation does not give satisfactory result first time, increased temperature of the wash water should be tried first before increased concentration of the cleaning agent is considered.
Unitor™ Tankleen Swift can be used for tank cleaning after animal, vegetable oils and fats and applications where an alkaline cleaner is required.
