Dispersant for sludge and silt in ballast tanks.
Aquamarine Sediment Remover is a non hazardous product that prevents settling of silt and removes sludge at low rates of dosage. It saves valuable cargo space which can be wasted as heavy ballast deposits. Sediment Remover eliminates the need for time consuming and expensive steel replacement which is often necessary to remove the ballast mud/sediment deposits which is will solidify over a period of stagnation.
Ideally it should be used as a preventative measure as a build up of heavy deposits can only be removed by physical means. If a vessel is trading regularly into ports where sludge is unavoidable then the vessel should be treated regularly with Aquamarine Sediment Remover after being thoroughly cleaned out i.e. after dry-docking. However, it is quite easy to treat sediment build-up in the early stages. I.E. For the removal of less than 4 tonnes sediment/sludge.
• Ballast tank sediment removal
• Open cooling water system cleaning
• Desludging engine cooling systems
• Desludging the sea water side of heat exchangers
Aquamarine Sediment Remover should be added at a rate of 1 litre/10m³ of water.
Agitation should then be implemented as fully as possible while pumping out.
