During 1996, chemical tankers were only permitted to use tank cleaning agents, which had been approved and evaluated by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). CARBON REMOVER was evaluated through IMO’s Working Group on the Evaluation of Safety and Pollution Hazards of Chemicals (ESPH Working Group) and found to meet the requirements of paragraph 1.8.2 of the P&A Standards.

Application and Use
A. Dosing Procedure
The quantity of CARBON REMOVER to be used cannot be prescribed, since it must be used undiluted and in quantities sufficient enough to treat the problem at hand. In other words, the quantity depends on the degree of cleaning desired and the contamination level. The operator is basically the one to judge the actual quantity needed in order to accomplish a particular cleaning job.
B. Cleaning Procedure
The application of CARBON REMOVER is carried out using the soaking/immersion method. For this, undiluted CARBON REMOVER must be put into a steel bath, then, the parts/items for cleaning should to be immersed and soaked for between 2-10 hours time, depending on the degree of deposition/soiling. Afterwards, these treated parts/items must be taken out from the bath and washed thoroughly with a high-pressure water supply jet system.
CARBON REMOVER is considered highly toxic and harmful product. Operators must always consult the Safety and Handling instructions table before use.
