  • The SuperMacs is a innovative and sophisticated piece of equipment that allows for the removal of sludge from a storage tank without excessive human exposure to the hazards associated with confined space entry.    The system was designed and built around a patented process specifically for this purpose.
  • SuperMacs provides pressure washing, removal of sludge and separation of liquid and solid materials.  It does this by generating its own hydraulic and electrical power with an on-board integrated engine.   It also contains an integrated patented heat-exchanger which can heat the cleaning liquids to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • An on-board pressure pump can provide wash solutions at 300 gpm and 300 psi.  The liquefied sludge is returned to the SuperMacs for processing using auxiliary pumps assisted by an on-board vacuum pump.
  • Separation of the solids and liquids takes place in the specially designed tanks, aided by on-board equipment such as the screen separator.
  • The process was designed to maximize the amount of product that can be returned to the client while minimizing the amount of material requiring disposal.
