MARINE TANK CLEANING & FUEL POLISHING

Clearvac offer cleaning services of all Tanks, including Fuel, Black, Grey, Sludge, Freshwater and Ballast. We also offer disposal of any waste product during this process and polishing of any fuel that is to be reused.

Fuel Tank Cleaning is critical to keep the vessel’s engines and generators functioning efficiently. Yacht fuel tank cleaning and inspection should be part of your vessel’s scheduled maintenance plan. Contaminant build up resulting from excessive microbial growth in the fuel can cause filters to become clogged. Algae, water, and micro-organisms cause fuel degradation and the formation of waste products. Blocked filters will cause loss of RPM’s, poor engine performance, lower fuel economy and the worst possible scenario an engine shutdown at sea. Routine diesel fuel tank cleaning will ensure no unscheduled downtime.

Potable Water Tank Cleaning & Disinfection is also important to have completed every 6- 12 months. We have seen some severe microbial growth in fresh water tanks that have not been opened, inspected and sanitised for 12+ months. We find that the original Tank Linings installed by the yacht manufacturer only last approximately 2 years. This can be attributed to a number of factors such as inadequate surface cleanliness, surface profile and/or improper lining application. It is important to catch these tank lining failures early before excessive corrosion and metal loss occurs. Metal removal and replacement repairs are extremely costly and lead to significant haul out costs and downtime.

It is much more cost effective and faster to properly clean, blast and line the tanks with an epoxy tank lining before severe corrosion sets in. Black & Grey Water Tanks have the most highly corrosive atmospheres of all tanks created by the release of Hydrogen Sulphide from accumulated waste. The upper portion of the tank lining exposed to the tank’s atmosphere experiences an accelerated rate of declining lifespan. Once the epoxy tank lining begins to fail the underlying steel or aluminium surface will corrode at a rapid rate.

It is important to catch this early on through regular cleaning and inspections before the tank excessively corrodes requiring mandatory replacement by Lloyds & other classification societies.

ADVANCED CARBON FILTRATION 

The most common reason for the breakdown and failure of diesel engines in boats, vehicles, buses, backup generators, as well as home and commercial heating systems, is likely diesel fuel pollution. Water from the original source, leaks into the tank, or condensation are the typical ways that contamination begins. Cladosporium Resinae, a common kind of algae, typically grows well in this water. Water is necessary for algae to develop and burn fuel and oxygen to produce food. In any tank that is left untreated, this airborne algae can quickly develop to be a serious issue. Due to the development of this fuel bug as well as the accumulation of waxes and resins naturally present in the gasoline, significant sludge buildup, clogged filters, and carbon buildup result.

Due to the development of this fuel bug as well as the accumulation of waxes and resins naturally present in the gasoline, significant sludge buildup, clogged filters, and carbon buildup result.

  • Fuel tank cleaning performed on-site without interfering with regular operations.
  • Removal of all water and other contaminants, leaving the gasoline spotless.
  • Tank internal camera check, if necessary, with photo report.
  • Enhanced engine efficiency, reduced filter consumption, and greater fuel efficiency
