Information Database A solid understanding of the meaning of important product properties and characteristics as well as knowledge of cleaning hardware is required to review existing or to develop new cleaning methods. The MIRACLE information section contains both, a summary and detailed background information about tank cleaning, related safety issues, testing and inspection guidance up to a troubleshooting section. The information section can also be used for training and as a reference handbook.
Tank Cleaning Proposals The included tankcleaning proposals provide cleaning guidance for some 7000 chemicals shipped regularly in bulk. The tank cleaning proposals in this manual are updated regularly. The success of a tankcleaning job depends on many factors such as thorough planning of the cleaning job, the design of tanks, cleaning machines and their operation, design of piping, heating capabilities etc which are known only to ship’s command. MIRACLE provides alternative methods for difficult products so that the best fit can be selected.
Combination of Background Knowledge and MIRACLE Cleaning Proposals Through combination of tankcleaning guidelines indicating the general approach with the information about the theoretical background, MIRACLE will enable the ship’s command to succeed.
Safety It is generally recognized that tank cleaning is the most hazardous period of tanker operation. Therefore all the special hazards that exist and how they can be avoided during tank cleaning are explained in detail in the MIRACLE Safety section.
