can be used for different types of cleaning, and it can be applied by brush, hand spray, High & Low pressure washing machines, by Direct Injections method but is mostly used by Recirculation method.

Removal of soot from Inert Gas Systems (IGS)
1.    Apply ALKAATUFF DETERGENT - LIQUID  with a H.P. cleaning machine and use 1:4 with water. If used by hand spray, apply neat on the surface @ 1 ltr per 12m2.
2.    Leave for about 30 – 45 minutes. The surface remains wet.
3.    Wash down with hot water at around 800 C. Repeat procedure 1 to 3, if required.    

Cargo tank and Cargo hold cleaning
ALKAATUFF DETERGENT LIQUID  can be used for tank cleaning after animal, vegetable and fish oil, petroleum waxes, and for cargo hold cleaning after soot, coal, pet coke and other bulk materials using the following methods -

•    Direct injection method with tank washing machines: Dosage rate 10-15 lts. per 1000 liters wash water (1-5%).
•    Recirculation method: Use dosage rate of 20-50 liters per 1000 liter wash water.
•    Spot Cleaning: Hand spray neat or prepare a 10-20 % solution. Leave for approx. 30 minutes before rinsing with water. Keep surface wet.

Before cleaning with ALKAATUFF DETERGENT  is recommended to pre-wash cargo tanks with hot water 50-60 0C.
For Drying oils and semi- drying oils a prewash of the tanks with cold water should be applied.

The efficient operating temperature varies and is depending upon the type of cargo residues which are to be cleaned. In cases like Palm oil residues the optimal solution temperature is between 55-65 0C at the tank cleaning machine nozzle. Higher temperature tends to bake on the residues rather than removing them.
Hydrogenated oils contain stearic acid with melting point of approx. 70 0C. to clean such cargo residues successfully, a temperature between 72-77 0C at the tank cleaning machine nozzle must be used.

NOTE : 20-50 % with fresh water . Also acts as an acid-neutralizing agent for Boiler & Colling systems during cleaning & maintenance.

The Importance of ALKAATUFF DETERGENT by High-Pressure Cleaning

The job of high pressure cleaning can be done easier & quicker by simply using ALKAATUFF DETERGENT in correct dosages. Using a high pressure cleaner alone, without any CLEANER, will not  achieve  optimal cleaning results High-pressure cleaning primarily refers to cleaning of Hard  surfaces, such  as Decks, Tanks, Engine-rooms, etc. and in the majority of cases the cleaning is done according to the so-called two-step method:

Step 1:  Spraying the  ALKAATUFF DETERGENT over the area to be cleaned.
Step 2:   Washing down the area using a high-pressure water jet.

After the ALKAATUFF DETERGENT has been  sprayed on the surface and  before the wash down begins, the chemicals penetrates & thoroughly moistens dirt & other grime. During wash down, the ALKAATUFF DETERGENT thoroughly dissolv- es the particles of dirt, even oil and fat, in the water spray and thus achieves optimal cleaning results.In addition to being more effective, the use of RxTuff substantially reduces the time required for the Cle -aning operation, as well as preventing dirt from reforming on the surface. The use of RxTuff in correct dosages is half the job done.

3 Pieces of Good Advice:
Apply  ALKAATUFF DETERGENT on dry surface where possible! A dry surface will absorb far better than a wet surface. When applying RxTuff on vertical surfaces: Start application from the bottom and work upwards! If beginning from the top and going downwards, the ALKAATUFF DETERGENT may produce "channels" down the surface, thereby running too fast off the surface. During high pressure cleaning: It is important that the rinsing water does not run over non-cleaned surfaces! The rinsing water can draw soap from the surface if running over non-cleaned surfaces. High pressure together with optimum concentration of ALKAATUFF DETERGENT will give the best effect .

Product Description:-ALKAATUFF DETERGENT is a superior & powerful alkaline cleaner containing corrosion inhibitors to prevents the corrosion of   metals . It is low toxic product with an exceptional solvency power on soil & oily  matter & having good foaming qualities. It is free from Hydrocarbon solvents , Biodegradable and minimizes the extreme hazards to personnel in handling materials .

Applications:-ALKAATUFF DETERGENT Suitable for cleaning engine components like fuel and  Lube oil filters, Injection nozzles, pump components, inlet  and  exhaust valves &  primarily refers to cleaning of  hard surfaces, such as Decks, Tanks, Engine-rooms,  etc. can be used for all  types of cleaning and degreasing and  may be applied by brush, handspray, high and low pressure washing machines etc.

Directions for Use and Dose Rates:
General Cleaning:- ALKAATUFF DETERGENT can be used for all types of cleaning &  degreasing & may  be applied by  Brush, Hand spray, high and low pressure washing machines etc. Time necessary for cleaning depends on the nature and  thickness of the deposits. 20-30 min. will suffice for   most applications. Hardened, carbonised or aged deposits may require up to 4 hours. If  the cleaning  solution is not heavily contaminated, it may be re-used at a later stage. If allowed to cool, the de-gassing procedure must be repeated. Depending on degree of contamination ALKAATUFF DETERGENT should be mixed with warm water at a rate of 50-200 ml   per 10 litres. i.e. 1 cup of ALKAATUFF DETERGENT to a bucket of water. ALKAATUFF DETERGENT solution can  be applied  simply by mops, brushes or rags, or by dipping the soiled articles into  the ALKAATUFF DETERGENT solution. After cleaning, rinse off with cold or warm water. Due to high foaming properties, ALKAATUFF DETERGENT is not recommended for washing machines.                        

•    Ideal for cleaning after coal and pet cokeTank Cleaning:-Cargo tank cleaning to remove residues of Mineral, Animal, Vegetable or Fish oil, Waxes  &  Soot from inert gas systems.

Method of Application and Dose Rates:-

  • Direct injection method for tank washing machines. Dose rate 1-5 litres per ton wash water (0.1-0.5%).
  • Recirculation method. Dose rate 1-7 litres per ton wash water (0.1-0.7%).
  • Spot cleaning. Hand spray neat or diluted with up to 5 parts water and leave for several minutes before rinsing off with clean water.

Cleaning of Cargo Tanks to Remove Soot from Inert Gas Systems:-

  • Spray ALKAATUFF DETERGENT  on with a high pressure cleaning machine and  use 1:6 with water. If used with hand sprayer, spray  the product  neat onto the surface, allowing 1 lit. for every 12 m2. Use a 5-8% solution in a tank washing machine.
  • Leave for about 30-45 minutes. The surface should be kept wet.
  • Wash down with hot water (80°C) and check the cargo tank.
  • Repeat the procedure if necessary.

Note:- Whenever possible, the cleaning solution should be heated to 60-80°C.If this method is not possible, other conventional methods such as separate rate direct injection, recirulation   or hand spraying provide acceptable options.For boiler  fire  side  cleaning, a 10-20 % hot  solution, (temp. above 40°C),  should   be  sprayed on  to  the surfaces to be cleaned. Allow to  penetrate for 20 minutes and flush off. For deposits  which are very hard to remove, increase the concentration to 50% and repeat if necessary.

ALKAATUFF DETERGENT most suitable for cargo hold and tank cleaning.

ALKAATUFF DETERGENT High foam plays very important role during ship hold cleaning, Its high foam ability increasing ALKAATUFF cleaning power on the vertical surface, As liquid product can't sustain on the vertical surface while HIGH composite FOAM can sustain on the surface which is resulting from good cleaning effect. 
Extra foaming is major features which is differentiating ALKAATUFF high foam to general ALKAATUFF.

ALKAATUFF High foam using procedure and cleaning method : 
1st Step Cleaning of extra and excess loose particle::: 
Before applying  ALKAATUFF DETERGENT high foam on hold surface, Makes sure extra loose cargo particle should be removed manually or Air blown method. Then cleaning procedure can be followed either by high foam machine or Manual. 
2nd step is for Mixing and dilution of ALKAATUFF DETERGENT:::
If cleaning step is with HP machine ( High Pressure ), Then mix concentrated ALKAATUFF high foam with fresh water, it can be diluted 1 Ltrs ALKAATUFF High foam with 4 to 5 Ltrs Fresh water.  

If cleaning step followed by hand spray, Then apply ALKAATUFF DETERGENT high foam neat on the surface. Approx  1 ltr covers 10 to 12 square meter. 

3rd Step final procedure::: 

Leave for about 30 – 45 minutes. The surface remains wet. Wash down with hot water at around 80 - 90 degree. Rinsing procedure can be repeated 1 to 3 times if required for Cargo Tank and Cargo Hold Cleaning.

Why should we avoid SEA WATER during Ship Hold Cleaning?

The hardness of Seawater reducing Foaming Qualities of ALKAATUFF.
Seawater also reducing the foaming qualities of the any detergent.
As per chemistry law and detergency effect sea water reducing cleaning effect. 
Seawater increasing corrosion risk to the surfaces and the equipment used and metal surface.
When mixing ALKAATUFF  with seawater Higher concentration of ALKAATUFF required at least 20 - 25% (ratio 2:9 to 1-3).


For degreasing and removal of residues of mimerals oil , coal stain and soot from surface.
