Type LTQ (FT Only) Tank Cleaning Machine

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

The Butterworth Type LTQ is a highly versatile machine and is applicable in most all types of tanks for process, storage, and transportation. Tank capacities range from 13,000 to 130,000 US gallons (50-500 M3).

The Butterworth Type LTQ 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 are established with each cycle increasing the density of the pattern matrix.
