BEHIND THE NAME…
ISLE OF MUCK – SCOTLAND, UK
Did you know..?

The word “muck” is colloquial Scottish for mud or dirt

A mobile tank cleaning and stripping system providing an efficient means of keeping tanks clean and empty of residual water

HIGHLY COST EFFECTIVE

TANK CLEANING & STRIPPING

Ensuring ballast tanks are kept clean and free of residual water is critically important to ensuring whichever BWMS used can function correctly, and within the discharge criteria.

The BWC Muck provides a mobile, cost effective means of undertaking intermediate and ongoing tank cleaning and tank stripping – helping ensure compliance.

DESIGNED FOR BARGES

& THE CLEANING OF OPERATIONAL TANKS

Following the BWC approach for barge ballast water compliance, it is crucial to clean the operational ballast tanks after each operation.

The BWC Muck is tailor designed for this process, with an integrated jet wash system and bespoke vacuum pump assembly for removal of sediments, mud and residual water.

NO SLUDGE DISPOSAL

WHILST CLEANING OPERATIONAL TANKS

If mobilised for the cleaning of operational tanks in-situ, in the same water as the operations were carried out, the BWC Muck does not require any disposal of sediments on land.

All residues and sludge is discharged back overboard into the same waters it originated.

A RANGE OF KEY FEATURES

Our range of highly innovative mobile tank cleaning and sediment control products provide our clients with cost effective methods to control tank cleanliness, sedimentation and, ultimately, preserve the efficacy of the BWMS utilised.

INTEGRATED VACUUM PUMP SYSTEM

The BWC Muck includes an integrated vacuum pump system providing very high vacuum suction capabilities for the removal of sediment/mud from the ballast tanks. The integrated vacuum pumps have a lift capability in excess of 8m water column.

HIGH PRESSURE JET WASH SYSTEM

An integrated high pressure jet wash system provides operators of the BWC Muck with the ability to jet wash the surfaces of the ballast tanks. Multiple quick hose connections on the exterior operators’ panel provide the ability to connect several jet wash nozzles at once, to clean multiple tanks simultaneously.

SIMPLE TO CONNECT / DISCONNECT

The BWC Muck has been designed to facilitate quick and efficient tank cleaning and stripping – and this includes the quick connections on the front of the unit.

The twin vacuum hose connections are quick connect couplings, whilst the high pressure jet wash fittings are quick release hose fittings – all facilitating quick and efficient connection and operation of the system.
