What cargoes can the robot clean?

The robot is capable of cleaning almost all cargoes without the use of chemicals ie. petcoke, coal, concentrates and bauxite. We do not recommend cleaning cement before dry-cleaning is performed. 


How much of the cargo hold can the robot reach?

Depending on the structure of the cargo hold, the robot can reach up to 90% of the surface area. 


Water temperature?

Water temperature can be regulated to be between 0 - 70 DegC. Hot water will improve cleaning speed of greasy cargoes. 


What water pressure is the robot using?

Nozzle pressure of each of the 4 nozzles is applying 190 bars with 12 ltr pr. min pr nozzle.
Impact energy pr. nozzle is 15 kw. 


How fast can the robot clean?

The robot can clean up to 800 m2/hour but it depends on the structure being cleaned.


Can the robot clean the upper hopper/ top wing tanks?

Yes, if the angle from side shell to upper hopper is less than 120 deg, then the robot is capable of cleaning that area as well. 


Is the robot wireless?

No, the robot is connected to the custom designed High Pressure System placed on the deck which is again connected to the remote control in the cargo hold. 


How much water is normally consumed?

Feedback from customers is from 45 tons for box shape Handy to +100 tons for Panamax. 


Can I purchase or lease?

Yes, both options are available and comes with a service agreement. Contact CLIIN for more details.


Can we get training?

Yes, CLIIN offers training both for ground staff as well as crew training onboard. This is usually done during a discharge operation. 


Does cleaning with a robot improve safety?

Yes, as cleaning can be done from the tank top without dangerous climbing. Additionally, the cleaning personnel will not be exposed to any harmful chemicals. 


Does the robot reduce the environmental impact of cleaning?

Yes, as chemicals are not needed resulting in less chemicals released into the oceans.
