Zaopin Technologies PTC is a fully automatic tank cleaning system, specifically designed for storage tanks of refined hydrocarbons, such as gasoline, kerosene, bunker fuel and others. Complete with nitrogen generation module, washing module, and separation module.
Due to a fully automated washing process, no personnel enters the tank at any time, making the ZP PTC a completely safe no-man-entry tank cleaning system. A closed loop washing and separation system enables 100% oil recovery at refinery quality.
The Zapin PTC cleaning system is suitable for both floating and fixed roof oil product tanks of up to 52 m in diameter:
|Working flow||30 m3/h|
|Working pressure||10 bar|
|Working power||440 V/60 Hz|
|Total power consumption||<60 kW|
|Nitrogen production capacity||100 m3/h|
|Wastewater treatment capacity||2 m3/h|
|Modules||Three (3) 20' containers
(LxWxH = 4,500 mm x 2,300 mm x 2,500 mm)
In order to maximize portability, the ZP PTC product tank cleaning was designed to fit the size of only three 20' standard containers. Each container forms a separate module that is easily installed at even at inaccessible tank terminals.
Modular Design Advantages:
|Module Container||Consisting of...|
|Cleaning & Separation module||Pumping station
Cleaning cannons and nozzles
Oil/water separation and treatment unit
|Nitrogen generation & Control module||Nitrogen generation unit to make the interior of the tank inert.
Control room for monitoring and recording the washing process.
|Water storage module||Water tank that stores the washing medium after treatment for easy discharge at a different location.|
The ZP PTC system recovers up to 100% of the oil inside the tank as marketable product. After initial oil/water separation, the oil phase is further treated in a sophisticated separation and filtration process that integrates C&C-2 reverse membrane technology.
With a filtration accuracy of <10µm, this cleaning step not only removes residual free water and emulsified water from the oil, but also filters out most suspended solid particles and microparticles. The filter handles even large amounts of solids without getting clogged.
About 5,000 to 10,000 liters of water are used inside a closed-loop during the cleaning of an oil product tank, and we make sure that it leaves the system as pure as possible.
For this reason, after a pre-treatment step, all wastewater is further purified via C&C-2 reverse membrane filtration.
With a treatment capacity of up to 2 m3/h, this wastewater treatment system reliably removes oil molecules and other impurities, resulting in clean effluent water that is safe for discharge.
The Zaopin PLC automated cleaning system offers a wide range of advantages over manual oil product tank cleaning methods.
Using the automatic ZP PTC tank washing system, any oil product tank - regardless of its type or size - can be fully cleaned within 2 days (48 hours) or less:
|Tank blanketing||18 hours|
|Tank cleaning||6 hours|
|Ventilation & final inspection||18 hours|
We conduct oil product tank cleaning services worldwide using our own PTC system. Due to the short tank downtime and 100% oil recovery, our tank cleaning services are highly cost-efficient. In fact, you actually make a profit, as the value of the reclaimed product exceeds the cost of cleaning.Oil Product Tank Cleaning Services
