Knowing the properties of the product you are discharging is key to a successful cleaning plan. Is it water soluble, viscous or have a high melting point? Can it Polymerise, Oxidize? If not considered, the wrong steps can have a negative impact on what should be a straightforward and successful cleaning operation.


If you are cleaning to a ‘High Purity Standard’ life becomes more complicated. More and more cargoes, once loaded on a visual basis, now require a wall wash. Load Port wall wash testing procedures and methodology differ from one Port to another and one supplier to another; but are used as ‘definitive’ for passing or failing a tank.
