Maker: Scanjet

The SC 40RA is a dual or four nozzle externally driven (Pneumatic Drive) automated tank cleaning machine constructed of 316L stainless steel and other highly corrosion resistant materials. The drive mechanism and other major components are external to the tank, this results in easy maintenance and a high level of safety when the cleaning of hazardous products are required. As the Pneumatic Drive does not come in contact with the cleaning media, the SC 40RA will handle considerably more solids in the cleaning media than a conventional tank cleaning machine.  The SC 40RA can be used in portable and fixed applications.

Key Features:

  • Rugged construction + External drive
  • Easy maintenance + High jet impact
  • Easy installation
  • Adjustable speed on the fly and whilst in operation

Typical applications:

  • Road and Rail Tankers
  • Ships Cargo Tanks
