BC (FT Only) Automated Tank Cleaning Machine

The Butterworth Type BC automated tank cleaning machine provides 360° impact indexed coverage for the cleaning of the inside of tanks and process vessels.

The Butterworth Type BC is a highly versatile machine and is applicable in most all types of tanks for process, storage, and transportation. Tank capacities range from 500-45,000 gallons (1.8-170 M3)

The Butterworth Type BC machine creates a pattern matrix similar to a ball of twine (see cleaning pattern simulation in the lower right hand corner of this page). A complete pattern is established when 65 axial revolutions of the body have been completed. During the process of this pattern build out, 8 cycles (for a 4nozzle hub) and/or 4 cycles (for a 2 nozzle hub) are established with each cycle increasing the density of the pattern matrix.
